We had a wonderful cheese fondue here! The restaurant is small, so I think it would be wise to make a reservation, but seeing that it's not high season, a few walk ins were accommodated! The menu is small and the service is prompt! Not a lively atmosphere, but it's good! On this specific evening there were quite a few... More

Very good cheese, a few options in the menu, Pears and pineapples recommended. Quite good wine and alltogether not that expensive for Zurich. Street location very convenient, but popular among paygirls, so expect some of them to be trying their luck with you.

Came here at 7 and it was almost empty, but the food did not disappoint. We were very impressed with the half half fondue with potatoes and bread. I would definitely recommend!

So I'm in Switzerland - I want Swiss cheese and here I found it. I was able to get a single serving of Raclette - OMG - I love Raclette!!! Who knew cheese with pickle, picked onions and corn could be soo good. It's probably a good thing that this isn't something I can get in the US. We were... More

We were staying in Zurich for 1 night and wanted a traditional Swiss meal. This is a lovely small restaurant offering a simple menu of fondue or raclette. We had the half-half fondue which came with bread and potatoes. It was delicious and even though it wasn't cheap we thought it was worth the money for an authentic taste of... More

This place was recommended to me by my friend who has always lived in Zurich. It's informal and most likely impossible to get a table during normal meal times without a reservation. We saw many people arrive only to be turned away due to a fully packed place. So it's not that big. Another word of advice: you better enjoy... More

My girlfriend and I are big, big cheese and fondue fans. We had big expectations for the fondue in Switzerland and Raclette Stube did not disappoint! We had the half and half Moite moite and it was just brilliant. Great setting and service but most importantly, excellent fondue. We left absolutely stuffed and completely satisfied. Will definitely visit on my... More

The first thing that hits me was a unfriendly staff that used a sour voice ordering me where to seat after I kindle requested one of the empty window table . The open withe wine had no test anymore. The fondue was very expensive (a ripoff). The staff describe that there are 5-6 types of cheese mixed and melted but... More

Before ordering Fondue you should ask yourself: am I the kind of person who would take a half pound of cheese, melt it and then proceed to eat it? If the answer is a yes then this is the place for you. Of course the cheese is a really good cheese, and you get bread and potatoes with it (and... More

First off, I had no idea Fondue was Swiss in origin. This restaurant was recommended to us by the gentleman working the front desk. He mentioned it was less touristy and more of a locals hangout. The establishment was small and intimate. The service was very attentive and the cheese fondue was amazing. Good experience. Pricy compared to the United... More
