Came here with my family during a tour of Europe. Wanted to try classic Swiss fondue and found this place in the old part of Lucerne. The restaurant was full and we were fortunate to get a table immediately. We ordered the three course set menu which had the cheese fondue, meat oil fondue and of course the fruit chocolate... More

You have to fondue in Switzerland, right? The food was excellent and the portions were huge. We thought about getting a 3-course meal for 4 but that seemed like way too much food. So we ordered individually and shared, 1 cheese, 1 meat/chicken with broth, 1 casserole, and of course 1 chocolate. The quantity of food served is insane. There... More

My husband and I visited the Fondue House because it seemed like a pretty neat dining concept for Switzerland. The food was excellent - my only issue was I ordered the 3 course for two persons and received way more food than we could ever think of eating- do not get me wrong it was fantastic. The biggest issue was... More

The Fondue House was a fun and exciting experience. My wife and I had great time dipping the wide range of food that was brought to the table. We order the three curse meal for two; there was more food that we could eat. We started off with crisp salad, followed by the traditional cheese fondue dip, with bread and... More

It is surprisingly difficult to find Fondue and Raclette in Lucerne, so this is the place to go toin Lucerne to satisfy these cheesy cravings. Our table of six ordered the traditional vacherin, Gruyère and garlic fondue, sheep cheese fondue, and the herb fondue. My favorite was the traditional. It came with potatoes and bread to dip into it, and... More

My wife and I really wanted to do the "touristy" thing and eat fondue while in Switzerland. We were recommend to the Fondue House by our hotel. While the staff was friendly and the service decent, the fondue was fair at best. Found the pricing to be high, even by Swiss standards, for both the main meal and the wine... More

I went alone to this restaurant for lunch and felt totally comfortable there. The wait staff gave good suggestions and advice for ordering. The cheese and tomato fondue served with bread selections and mini potatoes was delicious and would have fed 2 people (but I did eat most of it myself!). They offer a large selection of beers and wine... More

I was looking for a good Swiss Fondue while in Switzerland with my sister and parents. I was disappointed that the restaurant was set up pretty much for tourists. There were several Asian waitresses who could not understand German or English and had no idea what they had on the menu. We were finally helped by a Swiss lady who... More

The food is terrible, the place is dirty and it is very EXPENSIVE, for 69 francs per person and we were four (276 Swiss francs + 50 francs the wine), you get two baskets of old bread, two plates of potatoes, one plate of overcooked vegetables, two small plates one of beef and one of chicken, and chocolate fondue with...

This is perhaps the worst meal I have ever eaten (and probably one of the most expensive). I admit I am not a fondue expert and I'm a vegetarian but the food quality and service were just plain terrible. I knew it was probably a tourist trap but friends had insisted I try fondue in Lucerne and this was the... More
