Nice and authentic fondue place

We went here as a group of 10 as a friend of us who was living here for 5 years recommended to go here for having fondue. We reserved a table to make sure we would get a spot. Fortunately we were lucky as this place got full as we arrived there. We all had fondue, and I have to... read more

This small, vintage place near the cathedral is quite a polarising one, so let me put it straight: if you are the fondue type of person you would have a very good time , but if you have issues with the sharp smell getting even into your clothes or with melted cheese, you would not be able to stand it....

This is my favourite place to go for a fondue in the city centre. I've been going there 4 to 5 times per year since several years and was never disappointed by the quality of the service nor the quality of the food.

One of my favorite places for fondue in Lausanne. I particularly like the fondue "à la mode du Château de Gruyère", to which they add whipped cream. Service is also friendly. Great place for a night out with friends. It's often packed and can be quite loud though.

We had a nice dinner at this place. We were trying to find the good tomato fondue restaurant and asked one of the local people around the station and she recommended us this place. Although tomato fondue itself was very nice, I was expecting it to be more "tomaty". Staffs were all nice and price was decent as well.

Excellent if you like cheese!!! If you don't, you can eat some kind of salads, meats or fishes too. Not cheap but good food and service. Central localized next to students night zone.

After spending a few hours touring the famous Cathedral high above the city, we sought lunch. Just down the hill a bit we discovered this Café. Although they were busy, we were quickly given a table and menu. From the start we are impressed. The menu offers a wide range of Swiss/German/French items. It was difficult to pick out the... More

The fondue is the thing to go for here: you need to have at least two people to order it, but it's very good. We opted for the moitie-moitie, and also added potatoes to the bread. Both were delicious. The restaurant is packed close, but feels good and lively. Good range of wines.

Stopped in mostly to get out of the rain. Was pleasantly surprised how accommodating and nice the wait staff was too us. We had the Carbonara and the shallot w/ peppers fondue. Both were excellent and the price was right. I'll be back next time I'm in town.

This restaurant is right next to the Cathedral. The servers very super friendly and they had amazing fondue for a reasonable price. What else does one want from a Swiss experience!
