They have THE best Moitie-Moitie (Half-Half) fondue in a Geneva restaurant. By the way this is how fondue is supposed to be made. Half Vacherin Fribourgeois, half Gruyere; any other way is an heresy ! The restaurant itself is nothing special, it has a slightly kitsch vibe, service is friendly and relatively efficient, prices are a bit on the steep... More

If you like a good Fondue (melted cheese in a pot), it's one of the places to go in Geneva. This one is a bit out of the center town. There is another restaurant under the same name in a center town. They have other dishes than a Fondue, but their moitié-moitié it's really creamy and remain light on a... More

Went there for dinner to try some Swiss food. Service a bit rough but got better when the owner arrived. Food was ok although a bit pricey.

Having had the "American" version of Fondue, I was unprepared for the real thing! Deep, deep flavors, the aroma, the wine...I can't put into words how great an experience this was. My friend moved to Geneva a year ago and all he did was talk about this place. He was absolute correct. The only downside is that they are so... More

Had the vacherin fondue last night and it was absolutely great. Service was fine. Thing too spectacular. But great fondue and nice location.

Delicious fondue, super friendly staff, chalet style atmosphere (a bit kitch but goes well with the food). Great place to get that apres-ski/hike feeling, but without burning the calories first (not sure if that's a good thing...)

Had to do this, found on google and tripadvisor. The best and most authentic fondue around. Great place, tucked away in a small town high street at the top. Staff/Family were the best, food was fantastic. Had the meats and the fondue with a good bottle of white. Loads of food, plenty of crusty bread and I was proper full... More
