Fondu is an experience. Eat with friends nice bottle of wine and a slow paced not hurried adventure.

We come about once a month and have been doing so for 15 plus years. The experience is wonderful. Our son has been a regular since he was 2 yrs old. Although it is fine dining, children are accommodated quite well. This is the location where you can sit as a family and get reacquainted while enjoying the "fondue experience".... More

I have been visiting Cafe Fondue for almost 15 years and have never been disappointed! This is my favorite place to have dinner whether it is a special occasion or no particular reason at all. I came for dinner last night and it was perfect as usual. The gruyere cheese fondue is my favorite part of the whole dinner. My... More

For a change, I took some customers here to see what it was like. We had a blast. I was fun to cook the food at the table and it made for some great conversation and was an excellent way to break the ice. My clients were impressed and we had a great time. Service was excellent.

After trying fondue in Chicago I had my doubts about Cafe Fondue in Merrillville. But after trying it I was totally amazed by the quality of food and the amazing service of our server. I give it a 10 when comparing it to downtown Chicago quality. With much less prices. Defiantly worth a try.

My boyfriend and I recently visited this restaurant for the first time. It's such a cozy place, and the food was excellent. The value was actually really impressive because it includes your appetizer and dessert! The service was wonderful and the whole concept of fondue is just really cool. It was a great date spot. We've decided to make it... More

I have never fondued before. It was a new and great experience! I came in with my boyfriend and we both got the four course dinners. I was stuffed by the time we left. There are so many different combinations of meat to choose from. I will most certainly come again for dinner. I can't wait to try the other... More
