“Fondue fondue e fondue..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Probably the best Fondue moitié-moitié in the world. Here is the world capital of Fondue, a must if you come to visit this quaint part of Switzerland.

“Traditional Swiss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Great menu if you want to try traditional Swiss food. The fondue is one of the best we have had, but there menu is varied. You have to try the Truffle Fondue...superb. When the weather is nice the outside seating is excellent. The place gets crowded, so reservations are recommended. Our company takes international visitors and groups there often and the service is great.

“Extrimely rude staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The owner treats the people extreamly bad and unpolite. Not recommended at any occasion. They behave in the way of being in the center of town and not needing clients, so they feel they have the right to be rude

“Swiss specialities!!!! Yummy!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Being in Switzerland, we wanted to eat the real Fondue and it's worth it! We were told that staff was not very friendly which was true but we didn't care, the most important thing was to have something delicious to eat. You better make a reservation if you go there after 7 p.m. as it is very popular.

“The best cheese and wine in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

If you want to eat a very good fondue or croute (cheese plate), this is the place ro go. The team is dynamic and young, the atmosphere typically swiss with a modern touch. Thanks to the owner who is a wine fan, you have also a very nice wine carte.
