I like this restaurant very much. The fondue is good and speacially the malakoff, which is only served during the night. I liked the pave de beuf as well.

I've been to Café du Soleil at least a dozen times over the years. I've had some killer fondues there, and great salads, but on occasion - like 1 out of 3 times - the service will falter and/or the food will not be as good. For whatever reason on occasion the overall quality drops - maybe when the main staff is on vacation ??

On a snowy night, it looked bright and warm and welcoming. Inside is a bustling, noisy, fun place with slightly rustic decor. Good service from friendly waiters. Starters of thinly sliced jamon was delicious as was the fondue to follow - one pot shared among three was just right. Most of the group had steak of one sort or another - which was good but not up to the standard of the fondue. Skipped the dessert menu because we were all full. Pretty sure when I am next in Geneva I'll be back.

If you want your clothes to smell of fondue for a week, then this is the place to go. It feels crammed all year round. This is the best restaurant in Geneva for fondue, so EVERYONE goes there, so the place is always full and you don't have enough space to feel at ease, because you know you will have to find a pace for lifting your elbows so they don't hit both your neighbours. Also, you can't get anything else than fondue.
