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

Concerning the food only: it tastes awsome! we took cheese fondue and chocolate fondue and both were amazing !! Other dishes as well. A bit expensive, but 1 fondue is enough for 2 people (if they are girls))

We found this cozy restaurant as we were walking around town and were so excited all day to go back and have raclette for dinner. We were six people and sat right away without a reservation. That is where the great experience ended. Our server greeted us; Our entire party spoke German except for me, so we greeted her in... More

Yes it's expensive and the food in relation to the price is just ok. That said we (family of three) had a fantastic time that we will all fondly remember because we had fun. If your a food critic give it a miss and go elsewhere. We were in the upstairs room and found it cosy as opposed to hot,the... More

This pricey charming restaurant had great traditional Swiss one pot/bowl dinners and fondue and beer. The wines, even house wine was outrageously expensive and they did not have water, even though you could drink from street fountains everywhere in Lucern! Service, atmosphere and food was great, but they need to offer bread and water.
