Still the best fondue

This was the 3rd time visiting Le Gruyerien and the first time I reviewed the restaurant, I gave it an 'excellent' - although I still consider the fondue itself to be excellent and the best we've had in Geneva, I've given it 'very good' this time simply based on the service which was fine but not... read more

I have been in many "fondue" restaurant in Geneva but the Gruyerien remains the best one. The atmosphere is totally swiss, the staff is really nice and of course the fondue is delicious. The selection of wines is also great and the desserts yummy as well. I will definitely go back and recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy... More

The restaurant is a couple of miles away from downtown and parking around is not easy, it is located on a very busy avenue that was somewhat noisy at lunch time on a tuesday. We went there to have cheese fondue and we had it, it was good, standard I would say, I think I have never had a bad... More

Four of us went here and we were only the second table in the restaurant - the weather had been crazy hot. We had a plate of cured meat and two types of fondue with bread, potatoes and grapes. The fondue was delicious and we hovered it up between the four of us. The restaurant smells like cheese and is... More

Took some traveling friends here to enjoy Swiss fondue. Lots of choices, and a big PLUS that you can order 1 portion of each fondue (we were 4, had 4 different style fondue and shared, in many restaurants you need to be minimum 2 to order a fondue). Reasonable prices for Geneva, good wines and nice "swiss" ambience - very... More

Great choice of fondues, with some original twists. Good atmosphere, just some of the tables are quite squashed in, but once you sit down and enjoy a glass of Swiss wine this is quickly forgotten.

A little outside of the Geneva center direction Annemasse in Chene-Bougeries, you will find a what i'd call very genuine fondue place. Perfect interior matching the simplicity of sharing a fondue with friends and/or family (Never alone!). Service is excellent and very friendly. Start with a little salad and then move to the "viande seche" (air-dried meat). Then you will... More

When you feel like trying a lot of cheese dishes, this is the place to go. The fondue is creamy and tasty, the tartine au fromage de chèvre and the soup are delicious. Nice swiss ambience, good service, good prices. If you wish to go therein weekend, I recommend to make reservation if no t, it's always full.

As it's tradition in Geneva to eat fondue at the first sighting of snow and as there was a 100% chance of snow in the night we decided to get a jump on the fondue rush and book ourselves in to Le Gruyerien for an evening meal. There were 3 of us and we shared the moitie-moitie fondue which came... More

We were there with a group from work. We had a nice fondue with ham, sausage and cheese. The restaurant is Good, specially to go with friends. Nothing exceptional but agreeable.
