My wife and I we went to this bistro for a typical cheese fondue. It is a very nice small restaurant and the fondue was very tasty. Also a nice wine list.

This is a traditional Swiss restaurant on the Promenade with small rooms upstairs and downstairs, which makes for a cosy atmosphere. Their speciality is fondue which they produce to perfection. They have a decent range of compatible starters of which the standout dish is the snails. All washed down by a carafe of local wine makes for a delicious meal.... More

The hole meal was super, vom appetiser until desert. I tried for the first time in my life Fondue with tomate and it was very fine. I would definitively pay a visit if I ever go back to Davos.

This is a very nice small Restaurant with interesting Fondue menu. The spicy cheese Fondue is really spicy what else. The service is friendly and fast. It is however very packed and you should reserve a table day before.

Every time we are in Davos, we go to Gentiana. Traveled around the world we can only confirm - the best snails are not in France, but in Gentiana! Also can recommend Raclette, cheese Fondue, and anything else you will find in the menu. The hosts are also very friendly and gave us several valuable gourmet-Tipps

Found this quaint cafe while walking and thought of trying it. It was the best decision! It was warm and cozy when it was really cold outside. It's a small restaurant which serves fantastic food! They had a wonderful menu and we couldn't choose. A lovely lady who ran the place I presume, helped us with suggestions and the food... More

Long time ago, it was THE place for fondue but unfortunately not anymore. Even thou the decor has not changed, the fondue is well below average: to much flower and too much wine. Otherwise the german owner is friendly but thats not the reason to visit :-(

Very nice "home-like" atmosphere, friendly staff, nice food. Try the raclette, not à volonté but still plenty!

I stopped by this restaurant after the Swiss Alpine Marathon, for lunch. It was less than 8 minutes away from the Davos Platz train station. I was warmly greeted by Jens, who knew I was coming in, as we had corresponded via e-mail when I made my reservation. Upon my request, he sat me outside, where I could indulge in... More
