“famous fondue”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

I suppose this is a good place to go for fondue, but it is a bit unkept. Benefits from proximity to cathedral.

“Typical fondue place”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

If you like fondue, the menu is quite extensive and, to be fair, the fondues are enjoyable. If cheese is not your thing, try somewhere else. Dessert menu contains a decent selection of ice creams. The waiters only speak French and tend to be a bit sarcastic and unhelpful. Usually full during weekend nights so if your idea of atmosphere is lots of people talking loudly in German, this is the place to experience it. I wouldn't come here for a quiet candlelight dinner.

“Fondue!”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

Nice indoor garden for the atmosphere. Prices a bit high, but then, this is Switzerland. Many varieties of fondue. Staff might put long faces but will honour your requests. Only watch for the real price to pay when going out in large groups, they might tend to do "bad math"
Reservations are highly recommended

“Safest bet around. You will not be disappointed!”
Reviewed October 22, 2010

This is one of the most typical restaurants around - with great Fondue but also very nice pasta or swiss traditional dishes. The prices are very reasonable, with great value/quantity for your money - and the food is always good. The location is also very nice, close to the Cathedral, topping the whole city. In summer they have a very nice terrace outside.
