Great fondue as it was 26 years ago!! :) Excellent viande sechée, too. PS: Don't hesitate to close your dinner with some Williamine or Abricotine;)

Went here on a cold winter night. The venue is really tiny and heard always busy therefore booking in advance is highly recommended. Attended by both locals and foreigners is a nice place to go and enjoy a fantastic fondue. The ambience is really informal...More

One of the oldest restaurants I know. Excellent cheese fondue. I personally love the place for it’s atmosphere and bygone looks ok. Love it. But as this is my opinion I invite you to try it yourself. Vieux Carouge is been serving constant good fondue...More

High quality Fondue, reasonable wine, not many frills and quite pricey. The sorbet desserts are an experience. We had the Syrah wine, which I think was the most expensive on the list (48 CHF I think) and it wasn't great. The white wine was fine....More

Very nice and friendly atmosphere. The fondue is very tasty, especially the moitie-moitie and the tomato one. Prices are high, in line with local standards. The owner provides some good entertainment for her customers too!

This is the best fondue in Geneva. I return every time I'm in Geneva. This place is warm and cozy and has a great atmosphere for a fondue. We started with a 1/2 portion of viande séchée and a bottle of the house fendant, which...More

Probably one of the best fondues in the Geneva area. The place is small and cozy and the service is friendly. We went with our baby and we had to put the baby carriage in the store room because the place is full with tables...More
