“Great Fondue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Lovely little restaurant, nice atmosphere and service. The dish was excellent, and it included a vegetarian option, which we loved. The place is child friendly, but quiet and relaxing enough to be suitable for a romantic dinner as well.

“Disgusting, past its prime.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

The worst meal of our trip and my recent memory for eating anywhere. TERRIBLE. We were greatly looking forward to a nice fondue dinner and mistakenly trusted Fodor's recommendation for this establishment. We had the Menu de jour - cheese fondue. I don't know where to start as I have nothing positive to say. A cockroach ran across the table from the breadbasket. When alerted, the host/owners claimed the town was full of them and un-apologetically blamed Chilean wood for bringing them over. The 3 course menu meal was below the bare-minimum definition of a dinner: disgusting pate to start, stale bread and cheese fondue with no garnishes and little flavor followed by flat chocolate mousse. The whole experience was disturbing and a huge disappointment. This place should be shut down by the city health inspector.

“Fine restaurant, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2010

Small restaurant, family owned. Great atmosphere, nice wine selection, correct service. As it is small, requires reservation in the high season. They don't accept credit or debit cards, just cash.
