“Not worth”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

The ambience is lousy. Makes you feel very moody. Food is so so. Not worth the money. Do not go here for breakfast.

“Not bad at all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

I read a lot of bad reviews about this restaurant, that made me worry going to this place for dinner. I'm sure glad I didn't listen to them. But they are all understandable if you go with the wrong mindset for this place. Because their set up is different, you cook on your own food, which we really enjoyed and everything else turned out to be a memorable experience for us. You wind up paying a little bit for the experience you will never have in Singapore.

For first timer, don't worry they have a knowledgeable server that could help you choose the right cheese fondue and chocolate fondue.

“" Ex meet Ex"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I love La Fondue and i loving coming back to this place. la Fondue is not an everday fare, but we consider coming back for this restaurant for a special night out. i dont think i've ever had a bad meal nor bad service here. I'm more of a cheese fan ( I don't recommend this place for those people who doesn't love cheese). Their concept is unique and interesting, you can never have this kind of meal anywhere in Singapore. ,Though the price is pretty high, but the food is quality and delicious. For me everything taste fresh and well-prepared, and the selection of unusual options keeps the experience interesting. All meats are marinated,be sure to remember which is which. And always have a grill as one of the cooking methods.
And don't forget to leave room for dessert. It'd be a travesty to miss out on their Swiss chocolate fondue. Take note that if you want to enjoy your fondue dining experience go there with an empty stomach and take their feast set.
Be forewarned: this is not a quick dinner. With all of the courses, it could take 2-3 hrs, but if you have a great company, the time just flies by.

“No clear sign to entrance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Lousy signboards with no clear directions.. this restaurant is quietly tucked behind Long Beach restaurant. Cheese fondue is not bad, but quite disappointed with the chocolate fondue... nothing special at all.

Other main courses like carbonara or pork cutlet tasted ordinary. Food took ages to arrive, even though restaurant wasn't packed at all.

“We ate too much of the Feast!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We ate too much of everything. The Caesar Salad was very rich,but there no salty taste which i like most, the cheese fondue was very oh-la-la. I think slightly better than other cheese fondue in Singapore.The decor is very cozy ( I just don't like my Chair!). The entrees and the milk chocolate was very good.The Cheese raclette is very yummy.must try! i recommend this place for couples or for a small group who wants to have a very intimate dinner.
