“Best Fondue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The Fondue here was the best I've ever had. I had the spicy fondue. Wow. This place was tough to get a resv at but it was worth the trouble. The staff was amazing too. I know it's hard to believe that any one fondue is better than all the others... but it was. I was the only one at the table who ordered fondue, but everyone was dipping continually after they tried mine.

“Cozy Family Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Had a lot of history behind this restaurant. I guess the restaurant was named after a person who first climbed the Matterhorn, I think.

But the most important...I had the Cheese Fondue and it was amazing!!! The ice creams sold at the front as desserts after the lovely Fondue made my life.

The hosts were gracious and treated us as guests rather than clients.

“The right place for tourist”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Let's be clear, Swiss don't eat there, but you will find there guest from the rest of the world. The atmosphere is cosy and the decoration typically swiss. The waitress was very nice and friendly. In the end we had a very relaxing evening with our kids, but the food was definitely not oustanding. We had the raclette, and you need to order a plate of dry meat if you want to make it a dinner, and the cheese was probably of the very cheap kind that you find in supermarkets. If you want to try it for the first time, you will probably love it, if you're looking for something more quality, that's probably not the right place.

Just note that unless you take the kids menu without drinks, you will never reach $20

“Good food in a cozy setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Get a reservation: you will need it! The place is tiny with few tables, so make sure you reserve well in advance. Very cozy place but loud and warm inside. Really good raclette, one portion was plenty for a 'taster' to accompany a dinner of less-heavy food. Service was a bit slow but again, it was a really busy Tuesday night in high ski season.
