One of the best fondues of all times. Restaurant has a nice atmosphere, especially outside where we had our table. You should not waist your time with appetizers, go direct to clasical fondue!! Good price and attention!

We went to this restaurant after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The food is slightly cheaper than the restaurants in the centre of Geneva, and is good value in comparison. The fondue was excellent, and there was a wide choice of main meals and drinks. The service could have been slightly more attentive, but we came... More

It is the classic place for fondue in Geneva, with a fair price -within Geneva´s standands-. The fondue is good, and they have good offer of wine -even from Argentina!- and other dishes. It is a quite place, with a nice atmosphere.

We were brought to Cafe Du Soleil by our aunt, for an end of holiday fondu, she said it was the best place in Geneva to eat fondu - well I don't know if this is true, but I can definitely say it was quite delicious. Even my brother-in-law who is not a great fan of 'too much cheese', found... More

It is better to book a table, because this 2 floor restaurant is always full. The staff is very friendly and the food is fantastic.

Visited this place with many friends. It was popular and crowded both with local people and tourists. It was impossible to talk properly with friends here since we cannot hear each other. But the dishes were nice and staffs were very kind and helpful. The price is quite reasonable considering high prices in Geneva. I will visit this place again.

I absolutely love this place. When I am Geneva on business I always make sure to arrange a dinner at this place - and if I had lived in Geneva I would have been there way to often - at least according to my bathroom scales. They have the best fondue in the world, at least the ones I have... More

The food was good. The menu doesn't have any English on it so it was a bit of a challenge for us to order. The waitress was nice and helped us though. The service was good. I highly recommend the Salade Lyonnaise. We ate inside because outside was packed. The restaurant inside is very old and not very fancy. Basically... More
