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!

Basic place in a nice location. Even though they have a long menu I would suggest to come here only if you are looking to eat cheese fondue, the other dishes do not live up in quality to the price. If you do come here for cheese fondue though, you are in for a treat! Their fondues always delivers -... More

Where else to go for a fondue with a view of the cathedral? Tourist heaven. Be careful of the kirsch and imagine you are in the 1960s, and you will enjoy yourself.

The garden is dirty and such compact that you can't walk between tables... Service is really... More

We went to this restaurant on business, for fondue, in July 2013. I had been to Lausanne before but not this restaurant. They had quite a wide range of fondues which was great, and between six of us we had three pots. We sat in the garden, which was very pretty, and I enjoyed the location. Service needs some improvements... More
