“Swiss charm”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We enjoyed a very pleasant evening here last week. The building is in a traditional style and the interior is both interesting and cosy.
We found the service faultless. Staff were helpful, friendly and fluent in English. I know, we should speak French!
The food was by far the best we had in Leysin and not as expensive as some others.
The menu is long enough to have something for everyone and has both traditional Swiss fare as well as more international dishes. THe wine list includes a good selection of local wines.

“Best Swiss Fondue”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

For a person who want to try a real swiss fondue I would recommend this place.The food is nice and also many wine selection. Good atmosphere and the price is not too expensive. They are also has a museum that display all the cheese making equipment which is very interesting.

“Good food - bad service”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This restaurant is a bit too sure about itself. The food we had was good, although the meat had to be sent back because it burnt in the fire, but the service was sloppy and it is certain the client is less important then it should be. All kinds of rules and regulations surround the food: you can only order cheese fondue for 2, for instance.
The most disappointing thing was that the meat that we sent back did still appear on the bill - was taken off after we asked for it, but still. And when a waiter does not say good bye anymore only because I ask him to keep his customers wishes in mind, is also not really a plus.

“The real taste of Switzerland”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

My girlfriend and I had a really yummy dinner at the Fromagerie. When we got there the first thing we loved was the looks of the place. It is very traditional Swiss and a great place to have a date. We ordered for a fondue aux herbes which was really delicious. The service wasn't very good since our waitress kept forgetting things so we had to ask 2 or 3 times every time we wanted something from her, even to pay the bill!! But if something like won't ruin your idea of a date I think it is a great place to go
