Great fondue place. Truly enjoyed the food and fair pricing. It was busy, and still did not have to wait much to get our food. Will definitely be back.

We went for Triangle Restaurant Week. In my opinion, the selections of meats, sauces, and even desserts is more varied and interesting than your mainstream fondue place. Cuts of bratwurst paired with Dijon mustard dipping sauce?! Shut up and take my money! Great service too,...More
