Restaurant has two parts, as often in Swiss traditional restaurants. One, as you enter, is the "bistro", made for a quick meal and a drink. This part of the restaurant is a little less cosy than the restaurant. The menu consists of simple dishes: beef tartar, beef steak, cheese fondue, "croûte au fromage" (a large slice of bread, some cheese... More

Good restaurant and food. The service is slow.. the waiter forgot our second bottle of wine. The decoration is tack and the door of the men's bathroom is dirty not acceptable for a Restaurant. The waiters could use another type of hair.. Long hair could be tide and used like a Fly Attendants hold in a coque never tide and... More

We would never have found this without Tripadvisor and it was a fantastic find. We were visiting the region and wanted an authentic unpretentious place to have fondue for the whole family. It has a great atmosphere and very much feels like a neighbourhood restaurant but not in a shabby kind of way. We left very happy with our choice... More

This is a really nice restaurant, with a homelike feeling where I personally like to go with my family, especially at lunch time, on Sundays. It has this oldish feeling, which brings back childhood memories. I really like the terrace outside in the summer with the areas for playing pétanque. Food is very good - whether you choose foie gras,... More

Everyday here you will find the locals enjoying their favorite spot. Which is a good sign. And then beyond that, the food is wonderful, the service lovely and on a sunny day you must sit in the garden.

They managed to accommodate 9 of us at the last minute , the food was fantastic as was the service. The Sunday roast at £13.50 was great value for money as was the set three course lunch for £20 I will definitely return soon for a repeat experience , well done keep up the good work!

This little place, near to Place Robin, is a gem. It really reminded me of my childhood from the outside, and the inside too is perfect, just as I remembered... the days when even the smallest most unassuming cafe-restaurant had great food. There's a very pleasant and shady terrace next to what looks like a petanque. Great, delicious, simple food... More
