“Best Fondue in Zürich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

If fondue is your craving then get down to Fribourger Fonduestubli, in a quiet street just outside the CBD. The menu is quite limited: two types of cheese fondue and some side orders, followed by a handful of desserts.

The room is always packed so book ahead and expect a short wait when you get there. The fondue is presented to the table bubbling in its caquelon and off you go. The highlight of the fondue experience is, of course, the scraping of la religieuse (the cooked-on cheese) from the bottom of the pot.

Friendly staff. Great fondue. Good prices.

Very nice and cozy restaurant. We ate fondue for the first time, we really liked, tasteful, and the lady who works explained how you eat.
We enjoyed the ambiance and food

“"Real Swiss fondue"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Came here last January with a friend of mine. Although the food menu is fairly small, the fondue itself was really good - and that's what this place is all about anyway. It is a teeny tiny place, so you should probably make a reservation. As far as the ordering process, I would say one order of fondue can probably serve two people (unless you're absolutely starving, in which case you could get sides, etc.). With the savory fondues (all original Swiss cheese), you get bread and potatoes. I would definitely come again to try what we didn't get to the first time around.

“Fantastic Authentic Swiss Fondue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

It is a small cozy family run place - serving authentic Swiss Fondue (that's pretty much all they have on their menu!) - It gets busy so do book - the service is smiley and friendly. We popped in for Saturday lunch - but they didn't open till 6PM - but that wasn't a problem as the Old Town was a short 10-15 min walk away. It is good Value for Money (considering its Switzerland!)

“original fondue in the heart of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This place serves only cheese fondue but it is simply the best, and not only in town. We went out with 6 friends and had a nice round table the ideal way to share the fondue. The wine list is also limited but they have a few specialities from less know swiss vineyards. During winter, when you eat fondue, this place is always packed, so make a reservation. The owner and staff are most attending and put your coat away from the cheesy smell.
