One of my all time favorites. Noisy, crazy, red wine in baby bottles, great fondue. You need to be a bit of a party animal to enjoy it.

This is a great place to go with a group of young friends. Don't go with anyone who expects a lavish dining experience, as you'll be climbing over tables and drinking out of baby bottles. You get a choice of red or white wine and cheese or beef fondue. Go for the cheese, you won't regret it! And enjoy the appero plate you get with sausage, cheese, curried potatoes, etc.

It's definitely worth the 20E/person for basically more fondue you could ever imagine. A must!

Don't forget to make a reservation.

This place is a load of fun but you need to be ready for it. You're not going for amazing food and drink, but for a fun dining experience.
When you enter, your coat and bag are put away and one of you is launched over one of the 2 long, thin tables that are in the restaurant to get to your seat and then you order your fondue. The cheese was not the best fondue I've had but its not to be sniffed at either. The wine comes in baby bottles and the walls are covered in graffiti that you can happily contribute to and the decor is simple and joyous.
Don't expect privacy, but great conversation, me and my partner had great talks with the people sat next to us and the atmosphere is very cheery and fun. Also note there was a surly waiter who was a right downer but that's part of the joke and he is hilarious for the irony.

This place is so cool. I read reviews about it all over the web when I looked up "cool stuff to do in Paris" - and this is super cool. I was so ready when the owner helped me up onto a chair and over the table to be seated in a bench, and unsurprised when I received my wine in a baby bottle, but I was not expecting the massive portions and attentive, speedy service. Careful though - wine goes down real easy when you drink it out of a "biberon"!

At a set menu of 20E/person you get a plate of starters, an aperitif, your choice of cheese or meat fondue, a baby bottle of red or white wine, and a dessert. All are pretty basic, and it wasn't the greatest fondu I have ever had. That said, it's a quirky place with bills from around the world and personal graffiti plastering the walls. It's a small space and in order to get into the benches you have to jump over the table. A fun place to be, but if you're looking for the best fondue in Paris, you best look somewhere else.
