“Quirky & fun”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

While basically a fondue restaurant, it's more about the dining experience. We had a lot of fun throughout and that definitely makes a difference. The wait staff was friendly & entertaining. Cramped? Yes, but that gave you a chance to chat with other dining parties. Cash only!

“The most fun you'll ever have!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Great atmosphere for a fun dinner”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

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.

“If you're not fun then don't come”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

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.
