Very good, very expensive, very slow

The food and atmosphere are great. But the service is slow and the servers are little uninterested. And the prices are really high, even for Switzerland. Make sure you have a reservation or there is a good chance you'll be out of luck.

The food is good, nice place, decent service, but there are too many tables, little space, and if you like cheese but not its smell, you may find yourself in a quandary. The price is high, but when compared to the Swiss becomes understandable. I'm not disdaining the experience but I don't think I'd like to repeat it in the... More

We had lunch here and were very happy that we did. :) The place is cosy and has a nice old-style decor. The waiter was a very nice and a bit of a character, which added to the fun atmosphere. :) The cheese fondue was good and although we shared one portion there was enough for two - the waiter...

Depending on the reviews, we ventured out to taste the cheese fondues, apparently the best in the place, the hotel staff were not helpful in suggestions and neither could we understand the quantity of the servings. There are plenty variety of local Cheese but we could not enjoy to the fullest. Ordered Sheep cheese felt bit salty and thick. If... More

Had two wonderful flavors of cheese fondue as recommended by the waiter who was very helpful and lively. Also, had their very fresh Sangria and chocolate fondue. Plenty of food once we added cut-up fruit and veggies to the bread and potatoes that were included (we had a party of 6). Definitely expensive (ended up about CHF 90 per person),... More

Fondue house is located in the heart of the Lucerne old town and is a must stop for foodies. The options are mindblowing and come in choice of 1, 2, 3, 4 persons. The price is bit high but the taste is amazing.

I visted the restraunt today with 2 of my family members. The restraunt was empty with 80% tables yet to occupy. We ordered for 2 fondues as my father was not keen to eat food that evening. The person who took the order was extremly arrogant and said its 1 dish person policy in the restraunt strictly. Inspite of mentioning... More

My son and I thought since we were in Switzerland we should try a fondue restaurant. Although attractive on the inside, the fondue meal was mediocre, save for the chocolate fondue with Toblerone chocolate. As for the service, it was pretty close to dismal. I don't think the bad service was intentional just that the waiter was clueless. I watched... More

Highly over rated place. Can be skipped. Much better fondue available at other restaurants in and around Lucerne.

Great food as we got a chance to savor an authentic Swiss cheese fondue meal. Relished the flavors and combination with fruits of this dish. We got an insight too of how to eat this the right way with the help of their staff.
