“Very good fondue and nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

For a nice experience in Gruyères, after or before visiting the castle, enjoy a fondue at Auberge de la Halle. The fondue Moitié-Moitié is very good and we have also liked the fondue aux bolets (boletus) (1 pot per two people) served with a bottle of Gamaret. The staff is very kind and efficient.
As the room is not so large and if you want to enjoy the landscape view, it's probably better to make a reservation.

“Over-Rated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Their fondue was too heavy on the wine side. As well, do NOT order more than 1 pot of fondue for 2 or 3 people. It is way too expensive and we had to throw out over half. Staff should advise their customers of the "filling nature" of the fondue!

“Great fondue!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Friendly welcome, efficient service, good food, all are ingredients to spend a lovely moment in this nice restaurant. If the decoration is a bit outdated, you will soon be overtaken by the quality of the fondues and other local dishes. Children can order the usual spaghetti bolognaise or chicken and chips, while adults can indulge in several sorts of cheese plates, specialty menues and great desserts. If you want to enjoy a view, ask for a table at the back of the restaurant. To be recommended.

“Creamiest fondue by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Went here for Mother's Day - good job I checked the reviews first and made a booking as it was packed the whole time we were there. Our waitress was awesome; smiley and very attentive and efficient despite the masses of people. We all had the menu which included a fondue and the viande seche was really soft and yummy. This fondue was so so creamy and delicious, would highly recommend. A perfect Mother's Day experience! Our table was at the front rather than at the back where all the awesome views are but it really didn't matter to us.
