We didn't have time to ask who named the restaurant “Happy as Alexander,” but it must be the man who created the successful concept of serving different meat and cheese fondues. If you like meat, you can choose between chicken (bressane) or beef (bourgignonne). But,...More

This is the 5th or 6th time I go to this restaurant and that says it all! I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the food (always take both cheese and meat fondue). You have to try it if you like cheese or beef (or both).

We are fondue lovers. Seldom you will find a place that is specialised ini several sorts of these dishes, from cheese to meat; with and without a boiling pot. We took fondue bourguinon, so with meat. The meat was very good (only one sort, though),...More

We tried this fondue place mostly because we wanted a change of pace, but our experience was not a good one, primarily due to indifferent service. The solitary server was not exactly rude but was simply unavailable. We had long waits for any minor requests,...More
