I enjoyed the ambiance of this place and the staff was great. Although we had the most lovely fondue at Bouquet Garni for around r200 (for two) a few nights before that included cheese, meat and chocolate and here for r160 (for two), we just got cheese fondue. If you know and like traditional swiss fondue, you will agree it... More

The ambiance is realy cosy and finely decorated, simply flawless. For sure, this is the most beautiful restaurant of the city. The service is ok. But don't expect too much of the food... it's nothing impressive... in fact, I even think that it should be better taking in consideration the high price we pay.

This was supposedly a very well ranked restaurant, but I had one of the worst experiences possible. The waiters were forcefully trying to be funny, and one of them bordered rude. The food menu options looked ok. Since no one wanted to share the fondue, I ordered the "entrecote with homemade spaghetti", me wife order a fish dish and everyone... More

Very charming and nice restaurant. The staff very prepared as well. The food was very good, but in small quantity. The say in the menu that the "fondue na pedra" is well served for 2, but it is not. Well, you you have some staters and some bread, well then might be... The dessert was delicious.

Dinning at Belle du Valais is always an experience. Very good food, excellent wine list and wonderful ambiance. Price can be little high but is worth to the penny!

In a rich decorated house, this Swiss restaurant creates a relaxing atmosphere and an ideal setting for a foundue or a raclette — the house specialty. The wine cellar has more than 1,000 bottles. It is one of the most traditional restaurants in town, and maybe the best one ….

Beautiful place, amazing fireplace, but the service is far from being friendly. We order a fondue sequence and they asked me if I was aware about the price. (nothing polite from their side). Regarding the food, nothing surprising or different that would justify the price or aligned with the fame of the restaurant. Again, beautiful restaurant, but far from being... More

Excellent if you are looking for fondue. Certainly deserves being called the best swiss restaurant in the country (as it is called by many magazines).
