“Lively with great fondue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Great atmosphere and good food. Rustic decor and the sound of a crowd of people enjoying theirselves - a really good start. The staff were excellent, helping our group of 8 find a table at a busy time, cheerful with prompt and smiling service. The gazpacho for entre was exactly how it should be. And the cheese fondue was huge, tasty and again exactly what it should be. Nice beer and a very reasonable bill for Switzerland makes this a place I will be happy to return to.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

Our visit to the Cafe du Soleil was highly enjoyable-The fondue was excellent and rich-friendly and no nonsense service, and the price was good(by Geneva standards). We must point out that we prefer upstairs more than downstairs, as the downstairs looked like it was decorated 1970, and was a little to busy. Overall, a good and relaxing experience.

“Great fondues, nice steaks.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

This restaurant located in the Petit Sacconex area of Geneva is popular with the UN staff members, many of whom drop by for a drink on their way home. In summer the terrace is a great place to have a beer with colleagues and friends. The food is great too and reasonably priced. Some of the dishes that I like are the chicken liver salad and the steaks. The Swiss speciality of fondue is a house specialty and very popular on cold evenings.
