Best place for fondue

This is the best place to have fondue in cairo. The quality of food is consistent and the staff is friendly. U have to try the white chocolate fondue.

Excellent service especially the hospitality of Charlotte. Nice experience of raclette menu in Egypt. Lightning and decoration are good. Music volume can be lowered down a bit. In general, it was a great discovery in Maadi area.

Very cozy an well decorated restaurant with the real typical Swiss German/French atmosphere :-) Real Swiss food! You can taste the real Cheese Fondue and Raclette as well as the potatoes "Roesti" that have the authentic taste! Try the home made Meringues with Ice cream as a dessert, wonderful! Being a Swiss living abroad, I definetly enjoy it !

Delightful, charming, cosy and quaint Swiss-only restaurant in the heart of Maadi. They only serve what they do best, which means a short selection of dishes, yet that's part of the charm. They specialize in potato and meat fondue, as well as grill-your-own meat grills. The lady who owns the place will even help instruct you on the way to... More

They are claimed to be the most authentic swiss restaurant in Egypt, because the are the only one which is owned by swiss people. We were really excited if they can keep what their reputation promises. We had for starter the Swiss Plättli with... More
