We visited for dinner one night on our stay in Geneva. The restaurant has been designed like a chalet with traditional Swiss decor and a great live duet with the horn. Had a traditional meat fondue, was lovely and a really enjoyable experience. A little expensive, a fondue was around 40CHF per person although the whole of Geneva is but... More

Nice food, huge portions. A little expensive but you get an entertaining Swiss musical performance. They serve typical Swiss food. Cheese fondue is a must for every visitor to the area at least once!

We were staying at the Hotel Edelweiss and decided to try their restaurant. Service was great and the food was very good. We had the traditional cheese fondue. For dessert we ordered the chocolate cake with homemade ice cream. It was fabulous! The restaurant is nicely decorated and they have live entertainment.

We had traditional fondue and it was incredible - all the food and drink was very tasty and delicious. The decor of this restaurant is a must see as it transports you into a whole new world - a Swiss world!

What an evening I had here. My 3 colleagues and I were invited with about 80 other people to have dinner here. Food was great; typical swiss starter and entry and swiss wine. During the evening there's swiss folkloric musicians playing all kind of typical instruments. We also had the chance to blow in an Alp horn. And the staff... More

My visit to this restaurant was aborted at the front door when I looked at the menu and prices, which are starkly at odds with the description (as of this posting) on TripAdvisor. At the time of this posting, TripAdvisor lists Edelweiss as inexpensive (one Euro sign). But the entrees were actually 40-50 Euro, which I do not consider to... More

This is a great place to enjoy real traditional chalet food, which is the traditional food of Switzerland. Great fondue, raclette and other winter dishes in a very traditional environment that feels like being in a real chalet. Some times there is also live music which adds to the experience but you need to check when.

This is a terrible place with extremely high prices and bad food. Fondue is worst I have ever eaten - cheese had too much salt and bread was burnt. The road from station was full of weed smell an prostitutes around. I will NOT recommend this place.

We looked up Tripadvisor and decided to go to this restaurant, which took only a few minutes to walk from our hotel by the train station. We were not disappointed. The fondus were good and the service was excellent. Two musicians played different instruments and sang folk songs, making the dinner an interesting experience.

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague. The restaurant had live traditional music/entertainment, the highlight being the long horn being played The food was amazing, I tried three different types of fondue and it tasted amazing Will recommend to anyone visiting Geneva and wanting an authentic experience
