“Feel Swiss kitchen- nothing surprising, truly expensive, but.... NICE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

I recommend local specialities - fondue, cordon blue. As anywhere here it is expensive, but it has nIce feeling of a small place for local people, so worse to deep inside:). It is more a caffe than a restaurant, so nice jeans will be more usefull than a small black dress, but service is helpfull and you will not leave hungry. Fondue is truly good

“Less expensive, focused on swiss specialties”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

The Elsbethenstubli is frequented by locals and students, and is a less expensive alternative to many of the more tourist-oriented places in the area. Specialties include Raclette, and similar dishes.

“Exquisite staff, fine food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

I've been there for my last b-day in April and they've been so kind to prepare a special cake for me (based on my girlfriend request) apart from that good Suisse food/specialities (raclette, fondue, etc) in a typical Menu without big surprises but with a granted certainty in terms of quality; not exately unexpensive but even not exagerate

“Deep cheese experience - the Swiss way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

This quaint little restaurant specializes in Swiss cuisine. I don't know about the rest of the menu, but the fondue was great! You could taste the great cheese as well as the kirsch and the wine. The best of fondue is supposed to be the bottom of the pot, but we couldn't get there in spite of it's being delicious. Be sure to order potatoes to dip. I thought this was a weird idea, but we ended up fighting over the potatoes. I also don't get the comments about staff. We had the friendliest waiter and the owner was willing to ham it up for a photo! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Fondue was ok but what about the service ?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

We went to this restaurant because we were looking for a place to eat authentic fondue. The fondue was ok but the service was terrible. Waitresses were not willing to help and we had problems with communications although there were german and french speakers in our group.
