Mixed reviews for this place, but as avid fondue lovers, it was exactly as we would have wanted. Lots of delicious cheese, proper bread and such as vehicles for the cheese. Fondue by nature is not an avant garde food, its basic, simple, hearty food and this did not disappoint whatsoever. Service was efficient, serving size was far more than... More

I had a great opportunity to spent a New Year eve there, together with my girlfriend and her family. The restaurant is amazing ! Authentic atmosphere of alpine chalet combined with honest swiss-french cuisine, friendly and helpfull staff all night with a smile on their face.

We arrived at 7PM on a Saturday night with a reservation. After ordering, we had to wait over 2 hours before we received our food. We also had to wait forever to get extra drinks. It is a nice restaurant with good food but there are not enough waiters. This is reason for great frustration so I cannot recommend this... More

Loved it here! We stopped by after visiting the Winter Wonderland. We hadn't made a reservation and they were extremely busy but they managed to squeeze us in. We had the traditional cheese fondue with bacon which came with a small sack of baked new potatoes. The food was delicious! There is also a salad bar which you have unlimited... More

We eat here more often and always go for the meat fondue. For 26eur per person you can eat as much as you like of the meat (beef, chicken and porc), salad bar, potatoes, bread and dipsauce (different kinds). The owners are always very friendly. It is always busy in the weekends so you need to make a reservation.

We had a party of 10 for beef and chicken fondues. We had a very good experience with attentive service and good beer. It is a small establishment with indoor and (heaters if needed) patio seating. Our meal was culminated with a complementary after dinner drink. I would recommend it.

Very good location near the centre of Hasselt. While entering you can see a lot of effort have been made (succesfully) to give the restaurant a cosy Swiss look. However, unless fondue is completely new to you, the food itself is not that special. I guess more spices etc. could be used, but perhaps this does not fit Swiss cuisine.... More

I hope I visited this self-proclaimed Swiss cuisine restaurant on an off-day. The interior looks like a compilation of left-overs from various belgian Swiss Tourist Bureau "do's". Unfortunately the background music does in no way whatsoever reflect anything Swiss, nor does the crew by the way, as the Tannoys just played a local radio station rather than a Swiss station...

First when we entered, we went for a drink on the terrace. Although the restaurant was fully booked they managed to get us a table. We went for the cheese fondue. We took the adviced meat and wine which appeared to be a good choice. At the end of the evening we had a great time. If you're ready to... More

I wouldn't go to La Vache Qui Suisse for a quiet meal: this place thrives on groups visiting. Expensive for what you get, but an OK choice when looking for a place for 10 people or more.
