We had a Vaudois-style cheese fondue here in a not-so-cold evening and it was delicious. The fondue was melted to perfection with a nice combination of cheeses. The price is reasonable (around 30 Swiss francs for the fondue). A Swiss white wine was suggested by the waitress and we were not disappointed. The ambience is very nice and location is... More

Visited as part of a large dinner. We had a very helpful server who was able to keep up with the 15 of us. It was not particularly fast, but I'm pretty sure no one was cooking our food in a microwave, so I'm willing to wait for quality. The meal (from starters to schnapps) for our large group took...

Don't look any further, here you're getting all the swiss classic dishes! It's in between 2 streets that are more common so you have to find it. The Fondue is great but also try the starter with the Walliser Sausages, just delicious!

The food is average. I like the escargots very much, Fondue is ok, the rest is average. What is bad is the service. You wait, and wait and wait... The waiters are super stressed and most of the time unfriendly. A pity....

We found Le Dezaley when we searched online for a great fondue restaurant - we had actually walked rght by it without realising what it was - it is tucked just below and opposite the big church (Grossmunster). The decor is simple but pleasant and we had a very nice waitress. Service was good. The cheese fondue was delicious -... More

Swiss are known for their mountains not for food. This restaurant pulls off the traditional Swiss cuisine well. I am not a fan of cheese fondue, but we did pick this up, it was fine, but not something I would suggest to someone who is not in love with cheese fondue. The ambiance and setting were nice and the fact... More

We booked a table at Le Dézaley to celebrate my partner's birthday in company of eight friends. We hadn't tried this restaurant previously, it was recommended to us. We were not disappointed! We got a nice cosy table and got greeted personally by the restaurant manager. Our waitress was very attentive, nothing was too much. We asked for tap water... More

Knowing that usually touristic places often are pretty much a rip off I was very positively surprised with the Dezaley. The location is hidden but stunning and central. We booked a table online and were nicely welcomed. The local (if you know Switzerland you know that this is pretty rare) waiter was very attentative, friendly and flexible towards our special...

Located in Neiderdorf, Le Dezaley was a short walk from where I was staying in Zürich and close to a tram stop. The interior is a bit rustic, but charming, larger than you think from the outside. The restaurant specializes in cuisine from the Vaud region, the French speaking part of Switzerland. The menu is extensive and made up of... More
