A wonderful little cafe with a simple menu--cured meats, cheese, and fondue. For dessert, meringue. One absolutely must try the meringue. Really. Finally, some local wines that complement the fondue-they probably have some nicer wines, but the simple house white is perfect for the fondue. I'm not sure why so many people comment on "poor service". The women who run... More

I've been here 4 times because the food is really very good.d The view is amazing and the restaurant is very charming. However the owners of this restaurant are the most miserably disagreeable woman I have ever had the misfortune of meeting. They are impatient, rude and make you feel as though your presence is a burden. Every time I've... More

The Tour de Gourze serves the best cheese fondue in the region in a cozy, traditional dining room. True, there's not much choice but the fondue is REALLY good. And on summer evenings, the terrace allows a wonderful supper with a view on the Sunset on Lac Léman. It's a beautiful 1 hour hike uphill from Riex on small roads... More

One of the most beautiful locations for a restaurant I've ever seen. The meals are mainly Swiss and are very simple, but provided the price (ridiculously low by Swiss standards), this restaurant by far has the best quality/price ratio in the region

This restaurant with a very simple menu is at the endpoint of a nice hike and has a great location and view, but unfortunately they don't really appear to want customers. Our small hiking group has stopped several times for drinks and sometimes food. I have always thought that the service was rather cold, but we still stopped as they... More

We stopped at the restaurant on our walking day. This is a very, very simple little café/restaurant as you will find them in the foothills of the Swiss alps - with a splendid terrace. The inside room is not very big, so you may have to share tables. There is cheese fondue or crôutes (buttered bread slices topped with slabs... More
