Only fondue left is melting pot which is not good in my opinion. This had the coolest inside with ship and alligators. Many good times had here with friends.

Was a fun place for fondue. They closed in July 2013. Don't think they plan re-open or relocate. There was supposed to be an auction to sell off the unique restaurant items.

This restaurant was an Atlanta institution for 4 decades, but it sits in the middle of prime real estate in Buckhead and the city and county taxed it as if it were a high rise. Dante said in a news article that he's looking for...More

Beautiful and unique restaurant. First time having fondue, our waiter went through the basics and took all the fear from the raw food on our plates. Even our kids (10, and 13) really enjoyed the food. Plenty of photo ops and had a lot of...More

Within a building, we are a Mediterranean-harbor-village, complete with a wharf, an 18,000 gallon moat,within which sits a 3 masted sailing ship about to head out to sea. We are also a rescue house for confiscated crocidillians. We've had a mating and birthing for crocodiles and turtle. And CHILD Magazine dubs us "child friendly for responsible children". Live intellectual jazz performs 6 nights a week, acuoustic guitar on Monday, the Jazz groups night off. Major musicians pop in regularly when in town at NO extra cost. Menu is SWISS Fondue, we are one of the two oldest fondue supper clubs in our nation, the owner--- trained in Switzerland back in the 1960s where he discovered Fondue while on military leave skiing in the Alps. (Then there were no fonude restaurants in the US.)All employees are putting themelve though college and grad school with a handful of HS kids saving money for college. Our employees "give a damn", so come see for yourself.Reservations welcomed; often needed. On the floor nitely is owner Dante Stephensen...ask for him...and yes, he handles all complaints personally, but we hope you have none.
