“Simple but tasty - and all in a mock Swiss chalet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Tasty food, simple with lots - and lots - of choice. Swiss specialities like rosti and raclette but also lots of pastas, steaks etc. I had cheese rosti and a simple salad and it was good. Service was fast (not too fast) and friendly and our waitress was at home in French and English. Not cheap (I think mine came to over 30 Swiss francs) - but then Switzerland isn't. And the chalet styling was amazing - they even have fake windows with 'views' over Heidi style landscapes! An enjoyable meal out, just 5 mins from the lake.

“Swiss Atmosphere and Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This cozy restaurant with a very Swiss ambiance is located a few blocks from Geneva's main station in a block with many other restaurants. It's menu has a number of Italian specialties, pizza, and the mainstays of Swiss cuisine, fondue, raclette and roesti. We had pizza and salad, and they were excellent. The service was quite good but not intrusive. The tables were comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone in the neighborhood.

“Great for fondue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Nice low key place for a good fondue or raclette. Totally unpretentious and maybe a bit too touristy. It was close to my hotel and I wanted a fondue (moitie moitie). The fondue was excellent and the staff very friendly

“A good taste of Switzerland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

A wonderful menu selection including all the things you want to see on a Swiss menu. Raclettes, fondues, veal, pasta and more. You will definitely find something that appeals to you. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual. Service is typical of similar restaurants in the area (which is good overall). Prices are reasonable (considering Geneva's typically high prices).

“Only for Fondue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Cute little place, nice traditional decoration and lots of atmosphere, informal and cosy, locals eat here which is always a plus. Good for an informal evening, with whomever you are. We ended up chatting with an older couple sitting next to us. I tried fondue which was very good, and local house wine, also very good. Did not like the rosti, both onions and potatoes were overcooked almost burned. Service is friendly and quick. For 2 mains, a beer and a glass of wine we spent around CHF 50.I would definitely recommend it, only for fondue.
