In switzerland you don't usually go a restaurant to eat fondue, it's more something you do with your family or a bunch of friends at home. Restaurants that serve fondue and are not located in a ski resort are usually tourist traps and avoided by locals. How pleasantly was I suprised by le Gruyerien as the moitie moitie fondue was...

Wonderful fondue dinner in a quite traditional atmosphere. Food was very good, but the wine disappointing, especially the recommended white.

We went to le Gruyerien at the recommendation of our hotel's concierge. It was well worth the short cab ride from the river area. We let the waitress recommend both the wines and our meal and were really impressed. We had two fondues, the goat cheese and the half and half. They were both really different but each so wonderful.... More

I read about this place on the net & thought...yep we're going there. We ended up walking 4km to get there. Once there it was a cute & homely place. The inside was warm and smelt of cheese. I knew what I wanted before I even looked at the menu. Once the cheese fondue came out I couldn't believe my... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant out in the suburbs right on a tram line, so it was easy to get to. They have 2 locations but the hotel said this one was best. Good fondue and a cosy atmosphere.

This is our favourite place for cheese fondue in Geneva. Friendly staff, great food, atmosphere is homely. Kids are being paid special attention, which is nice. Reservations are probably a good idea.

I wanted it to be special for my first time. And this was. Charming hosts and a delicious fondue served with crisp white wine. What I didn't expect were the vivid and disturbing dreams that night. That's what you get for eating cheese before bedtime I suppose. Don't let that put you off. If you like cheese then this is... More

A restaurant serving excellent fondue with very friendly proprietors. Off the tourist map along the route of the number 12 tram. Well worth a visit if one is looking for fondue in Geneva.
