Switzerland is famous of their fondue so we found the restaurant by reviews. Was not disappointed at all. We took a bus to the place and it was not hard to find. Staff were attentive and the cheese fondue was in fact yummy. I only could eat several pieces of bread though as they are pretty filling for me. The restaurant has been around for quite a long time so to me, the renovation and the furniture are a bit aged. I prefer modern deco but the atmosphere here did seem very cozy.

My husband and I frequent this place. We do enjoy cheese fondue and theirs is good. It is nice to sit in the balcony during the summers. The decor is simple, nothing fancy. It is open on Sundays. This is a plus in Geneva where most establishments close on Sunday. Easily reached by taking Bus #3 to Gardiol. It is near the end of the line.

Love this restaurant: it's most famous for its fondue, but I love the steak and chips. Really good quality at a reasonable price.

My friend and I braved an extremely cold night in February in Geneva to have a cheese fondue at the Cafe du Soleil as a good fondue was the one food experience I really wanted from travelling Switzerland. It was everything the reviews promised...I probably had the best fondue in the world! Loved the atmosphere as well
