Make sure you make a reservation as this place, the phone rings off the hook., it so popular. This tiny little restaurant is a hidden gem . The proprietor was so helpful and helped walked us through the most perfect experience. The fondue was to...die for and the Roquefort and walnut salad was so beautiful. We also had a selection of cured hams and potatoes which made the whole meal perfect. Do not miss this if you are in Paris . I cannot recommend this enough!!! 🇫🇷❤️More

I was going to write a good review, since I really enjoyed their tartiflette but I witnessed an unpleasant interaction with one of the guests. It was a lady, who I think was stood up on a date. She tried to order a dessert and...was told, essentially, that it was a restaurant, and she was supposed to order food. She did, but I thought this was very rude.More

It was our 2nd last day in Paris and we were looking for a new place to eat - with no time to make a reservation, we gambled that we might get a table at Pain, Vin, Fromage, which had great reviews and was within...walking distance from our place near Les Halles. By a stroke of luck we were seated at the last available table. The menu of many choices of Fondues and Raclettes, we notice the bourguignon with red wine. What a treat! Beautiful, bountiful, beef, quickly seared in boiling red wine - dipped in a variety of sauces and complemented with a large fresh lettuce salad. Match that with a reasonably priced red wine and we were in heaven. This was made all the better by the lively conversation with our neighbouring table, first with a Polish / American party then followed by a Spanish couple. We had such a lovely time, we asked for reservations for the following and our last evening in Paris - for this trip. The next night we got a table in the Cave below where our neighbours happened to be Czech, which is were my wife was born. So much to explore - time went by so quickly but contacts have been made and will be followed up. Such is the enjoyment of a great restaurant experience in Paris. The desert menu is avoided at your risk of missing out on several amazing treats, also the wine list is complete and priced reasonably for value. We will return for more happy meals and wonderful service by the multi-lingual maestro and his team.More

Bravo to the chef!!! My adult daughter and I are joking about a return trip to Paris--just so we can eat here again. The fondue, the cheese, the wine, the darling waiter... absolutely outstanding restaurant!

We called to make a reservation and we specified 3 times we had babies. Despite being specific on that, the person who took the reservation did not give any advice that the place was was not furnished with high chaires or space for trolleys. As...a result, we had a terrible surprise when we reached the place, after walking for about a hour to get there (9.30 pm!). The staff did not do anything to try to accommodate us and was not even sorry that they did not tell us we wold not be able to dine with the babies. They simy said we cold not do it and it was pretty much our problem. Not friendlyMore

Savoyard ambiance and amazing wine. We had tartiflette and openfaced paysanne ham, but the highlight was a bottle of Echezeaux for remarkable price. Go there!

If you love wine, cheese and crusty French bread, this is your place!! This is a very charming (albeit small) eatery that specializes in fondue and raclette, serving many variations of both. My only caveat here is the tight seating which gets interesting when all...of the fondue/raclette gear gets brought to the table. Never fear, they've done this before and it all works out. The staff is very helpful and efficient. For our party of four, the recommendation (which we went with) was for fondue for two and raclette for two (to be shared among us. We also started with a mixed salad that was very good. The food recommendation was perfect, plenty of food. We absolutely loved it all. Great experience, we highly recommend.More

Extremely unfriendly and hurried wait staff and average food. We’ve had raclette and fondue elsewhere and found it much better. It was just OK.

This is our second time going here and we make it a must when in Paris. Booking is whilst isn’t essential (we managed to get a seat the first time through walking in), it is highly recommended as it gets very busy. We were placed...downstairs which is a small space but comfortable and intimate. We went for the green salad and raclette to share which came with an assortment of cured meats, pickles and soft delicious potatoes. A perfect way to spend an evening. I highly recommend!More

Fondue is something that appears easy to do. It isn’t. Not consistently, with varied flavors and ingredients. Or with signature French professionalism—without the rudeness. We came here this afternoon without reservation. We were promised nothing, but within 10 minutes he asked us to sit at...an empty table in the main room. The traditional fondue is excellent, particularly when you add a plate of charcuterie and cornichons (dip them and chase with a glass of vin du table). The salads was fresh and well-tossed. The apple tart was, well, simply amazing, piping hot and inhale-able. Next time we make a reservation for lunch.More

Did you mean to send this question to the restaurant? That would be my suggestion. If not, my guess is that the "minimum two persons" refers to the amount of fondue you get in the pot. So go hungry if you're going alone!
