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

I stopped in Davos on a weekend road trip through the Austrian and Swiss Alps. Gentiana was a great choice for a stop. The owners were very nice and helpful and made my stay in their restaurant very enjoyable. I had a small salad as a started followed by the classic cheese fondue, which I would come back for to...

Fondue was great. We had the bacon and cheese one. I have had fondues that make you feel crap afterwards, this was super tasty and felt great!! Service was really nice, and felt like a real family owned place rather than just trying to push people in and out.

We visited Gentiana especially for the fondue. And that was the best choice we made the whole week. A-ma-zing cheese fondue. We finished the whole pan and we polished it off with a nice Riesling and a beautiful Primitivo del Salento, which fitted perfectly with the fondue. And a special mentioning of the staff. so friendly and polite and helpful.

Delicious, more, more, more... the best Fondue I have ever tasted. I had the Kase Fondue mit Kirch, it was the best Fondue I've ever had the pleasure to taste and enjoy... Thank you to the restaurant owners, who make the experience even more special. You must book as there are two sittings - 6.30pm and 8.30pm... You won't be... More

We ate here for my Mrs's birthday. It was a fabulous experience. The Morchel fondue is to die for! The service was very very fast, friendly, and all-round superb.
