“The best fondue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

It is the best Swiss food restaurant in Leysin. Service is good if it´s not busy. Otherwise, it could take forever. The waiting is worth it though. Bon Appétit!

“A new visit, a new review, what a difference”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We went back to the La Fromagerie and what a difference. This time there was no big crowd or tourists and the waitresses were very much in control of the situation as compared to our last visit. The service was prompt and friendly and the food excellent.

We are glad we went back again and experienced the difference, a most pleasant surprise and an excellent experience.

The live music was as well, very good. But we still did find the price a bit on the high side.

“Nostalgic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We went there in July 13 and they had a traditional music band playing in front of the Restaurant. The restaurant is worth to see, like 100 years ago, very charming. We had Cheese Fondue, which was great. Service was ok, but delivered red instead of ordered white wine. Not so many wines offering, but at least the one they had was local. You can get also food-souvenirs like Meringue or Chees for a home fondue. Atmosphere is lovely.

“Average food, speak French”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

It was a crowded Saturday evening and I think the staff was not prepared for it. Most people sat "outdoor" which is tables set in the middle of the street in front of the restaurant. Service was very slow but the staff did try.

As we did not speak French, the only person able to help us was the owner (we think he is the owner). A waitress came to take our order but once we tried in EN, she just walked to another table to take their order instead, rather than getting the owner to help us. When the owner did come by with the drinks, she mentioned to him that he had to help us due to language....

We were not thrilled with the fondu, not to our taste (fondu with mushrooms) but we did see a lady wipe her pot clean, so it is probably just us... nevertheless, the raclette was good. Overall the food was ... average, nothing to write home about, especially compared to the prices charged. When paying, check your bill, we were over charged for food not ordered. This can be an honest mistake due to the crowd I suppose...

What was strange was the "live entertainment", 2 Americans with cowboy hats singing country music, definitely not our cup of tea in the middle of Switzerland.

If you speak French, I am sure you will have a better experience. Oh, credit cards only for bills over 40CHF but wont be difficult to hit that mark.
