We were 8 adults for dinner - we had the most delicious Fondue - however there were other choices on the menu. One of our group can't digest cheese - so she had plenty of alternatives from which to choose. Lovely atmosphere and service. All in all a great Swiss experience and value for money.

If ever you feel like having a real fondue, this is the place to come to. It's a neighborhood restaurant, decorated in typical regional style. Service is very warm and friendly( I was even offered a menu in English) and food is delicious. We started with Viande Sechee ,a Swiss specialty usually part of the Fondue dinner, that was excellent.... More

On a Saturday night we had a reservation at this cosy place. It is a small restaurant with place for 25/30 people. We ordered a half-half fondue for one person which came with bread and potatoes and we ordered a meat and cheese plate. I never had fondue but it was surprisingly good! Mixing it with bread and some gives... 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

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 exceptional. Our waiter although... 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.
