The fondue here was ok, but this is a restaurant for tourists only, with alpine horns and accordions - fine if you are expecting them. They did a chocolate fondue for dessert but you had to buy a dish for two, which at 30 SF seemed rather steep, as only our 9 year old had enough room for one. Needless to say, we passed on this, as surely most do.

Recommended to us by Its sister, Hotel Kipling Manotel, the restaurant features Swiss cuisine in a Swiss alpine setting. Wait staff wear alpine costumes and meals are accompanied by traditional alpine folk music well played by a clever duo. Yes, the place has atmosphere and was well patronised on the night of our visit.
Food was basic and the service efficient but there were no highlights for us.

We had a great evening in this place!

The main course - typical Swiss, raclettte, fondue à la bourguignon -was very tasty and ended with a very filling fondue au chocolat with sauce framboise and crème brûle à la lavande. Both nicely presented and freshly made.

Impeccable service and great atmosphere with live traditional Swiss music (it's fun to listen to it from time to time)!

Definitely going back!

This restaurant basically replicates a swiss chalet inside a hotel and you eat whilst some swiss band plays Bavarian music with a plethora of instruments. You can even try some of the most funky ones yourself. They let you.

The food is very good and the fact the place is packed is testimony to its success. We manage to get in without reservation with I would suggest you book ahead if you can.

Excellent food all around, very friendly service at reasonable prices. Would be very fun for kids too if you had any.

Try to Pre Order table in restaurant 5-6 hours before for dinner. Because there are many tourists in this place. The prices are very expensive. Ask about half portion when you will select a meal from menu, maybe you will not like and it helps you save your money. You can listen to live national music and try swiss music instruments
