“Fun restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2015 NEW

Why mentioning "gun" for a restaurant? Because this place is unique: each table has telephone, you even have one in the bathroom!!! Back in time it was used to call other person at other table to do a kind of dating :)

The food was good as well!

“Entertaining evening out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2015

The speciality of this place is what they call fondou, but we knew as hot rock cooking. You choose your meat (some very different options, snake, frogs legs as well as bison and elk) and then cook it yourself. this led to a raucous evening trying different food amongst our group of seven. Also each table has a phone so you can ring other tables and even the restrooms! We had fun!

“Mmmmm Fondue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2015

Three of us here on a weeknight and the place was reasonably full. Great service, loved the table side phones! We got a call within minutes of sitting down...so much fun! We all had the complete fondue dinners...started with soups or salad, both were delightful. Then traditional cheese fondue with bread and we almost licked the pot it was so good! Our mains consisted of beef then chicken or prawns or scallops. We decided to use the hot rocks for the entrees. It was fun and so tasty. What great atmosphere to eat by, We finished off with Toblerone chocolate fondue with strawberries, wafers, melons, pineapple, bananas, oranges and apples to dip with. By that point we were so full but every bite was delightful. We could not decide what was the highlight of our meal, it was all just so good. Thank you for a wonderful, memorable evening, We can't wait to come back with family who we know will love it too!
