Little Swiss is a nice place with a nice atmosphere. However, the fondu leaves a lot to be desired since you only have "bread" as your dipping option, and the fondu varieties are 4 that are not even worth trying. They are all the same. Apart from that, the place is EXTREMELY overpriced, fo no good reason. If I had... More

This is one of the best gems in Egypt. The owner is very a hospitable and lovely Swiss Lady with her family helping out. From the point you get in you are very well treated and welcomed. They have the best cheese fondue in town. The cheese with mushroom and the cheese with tomato are great and very much recommended.... More

A quirky decorated restaurant which does what it says on the menu! Serves traditional swiss fondu and raclette with authentic ingredients. Host Charlotte is welcoming and attentive. We sampled the half raclette and half chicken grill served with pickles and expected accompaniments. Pleasant atmosphere and steady flow of clients - several families and children were enjoying cooking their meals at... More

We dined last week in this nice restaurant. The restaurant owner is a warm welcoming & charming lady. The menu has most of a person can expect in a swiss restaurant. Food is great & tasty. Prices are somewhat expensive. It is obvious that the place was a residential flat, but the restaurant owner turned it into a restaurant. The... More

This place is a smaller, less romantic version of Melting Pot in the United States It's that Swiss Cuisine where you'll start first by ordering your choice of cheese (very tasty) then you'll turn to the beef and chicken (the part where you cook your own food) and there is nothing better than the chocolate at the end ! this...

Besides the Swiss atmosphere and the friendly owner, this is the best place to have fondue and raclette in town. the portions are not meant for a hungry person however it is always a pleasant experience. because of the limited seating you certainly need to book to guarantee a table.

This is a little gem in Maadi that serves fantastic food! The entrance to little Swiss isn't very intuitive, you need to go through a cafe to get to the staircase leading up to little fondue. Once you make it to little Swiss though, you are surrounded by pictures reflecting Switzerland, from chocolates to cows! The owner of the place... More

Lovely quaint restaurant. The place is tiny but cozy. Service is great, especially the landlady who makes it a point of greeting all and chatting them up a bit. The Swiss specialties are tasty and filling. You can event have the entire place to yourself if you plan to throw a party. Definitely worth a visit.
