I came here with some friends to make them discover the best Gruyères has to offer. I know most of the restaurants there, living in Lausanne and I must say that despite the beautiful terrace this was the worst experience across all the restaurants I tried there. The raclette has no taste at all, potatoes were too cooked, I supposed... More

The food isles than medium. The service was ok not more The restaurant was full of flys bothering you throughout the meal. The waitress said she knows but didn't even try doing anything about it. The blue lamp was ineffective as it was placed under a regular one. Would not go in if I would know. Terrible experience.

We came with a group and had a very good mixed salad, raclette and fondue at the table, and a variety of desserts. Everything was good but we especially enjoyed the salad and raclette. The fondue was a little strong for my taste but my husband loved it.

Wonderful staff setup in a wonderful old village that's hundreds of years old. We were a group and we Ordered the racklet which is one the Swiss traditional food. The cheese was amazing. I ordered meat that comes raw with a hot stone on the side. I grilled the steak to my liking. It proved to be an amazing experience.... More

We just spent a great New Year's Eve dinner here with our two boys. We had a cheese fondue (hence the reason for the trip to Gruyeres). The atmosphere was lovely, the waitresses were attentive and friendly and made it really special. We were even given as an end of the year treat "hors d'oevres". Were definitely going back for...

If you want to eat with a view of the ramparts and main gate area, this is the place...if you are lucky enough to get a table near the window. If not, then it's just a normal place with average food and Swiss decor. And really, if you want to see the ramparts, just walk outside. Overall this place was... More
