Long walk up a very steep hill. Reasonable food, my fondue wasn't very substantial, but it was so salty I struggled to finish it. To be fair my wife had a great salad, and my son had a great children's pasta. Wine servings were very small and the price was steep-ish. Not great VFM.

It was clear that all the French speaking/local people were put on the entrance floor, and English speakers / tourists were put in the damp smelling cellar, so that kind of 'dining-apartheid' made me resentful too.

Hard to go wrong. We got a last minute booking in a restaurant that clearly had no open tables thanks to our hotel (East West) We sat downstairs (the ambience is better upstairs but we booked late) the snails were fresh, the fondue was excellent (we have nothing to compare it to but who cares) the staff were really nice. It was a lot of fun and great for families, groups, friends...

This is a lovely restaurant in the old section of Geneva. We were there at 7pm on a Saturday which is when the huge cathedral nearby plays its bells. Wonderful. The restaurant is very pretty and the service was good. However, we were a bit disappointed by the cheeze fondu. It seemed oily (and definitely needed some Kirshwasser).

What Les Armures is guilty of - is lack of continual consistency, in both its service and quality of food. Often people claim that it is the place to go for the best fondue in Geneva, But honestly the Fondue there was not any more extraordinary than other restaurants in Switzerland. We shared a fondue and a bottle of white and on average it cost around 45franc per person. If you're going to go to Les Armures rather consider the advantages of its location (pretty old town surrounds) and bragging rights (for being a place frequented by famous and important people) rather than its reputation for supposed palate-changing cuisine and silver service.Expect items on the menu to be pricey.

Very nice for groups...large downstairs area that works well. Staff was very attentive and service was quick. Food was very good.
Only possible drawback - if you are traveling with larger group the street leading to the hotel is too narrow for a bus. The walk from the main "bus stop" is about 3 minutes up a small incline.
