The restaurant atmosphere is so nice. Great experience for fondue. Our waitress was very polite and funny. My chesnut soup was delicious.

Seated outside in the atmospheric Old Town it was a grand and relaxing occasion.

Mains were lovely complemented with a cool white wine. Then decided on a shared dessert followed by coffee and cappuccino.

It was an unhurried evening. With the whole ambiance, fine food and great staff it was all most enjoyable.

Located on the slopes in the old town, close to the cathedral, this restaurant has earned itself a strong reputation among visitors to Geneva for its Swiss classics such as fondue.

I indeed found the fondue good but not really special - it is served with very good bread, little cornichons and pearl onions and a small basket of baby boiled potatoes. Desserts are rather good too though nothing special (the "trio helvete" was fun though the meringue was overcooked and dry but the apricot sorbet excellent). Decor is pretty.

The limits are that the place is perhaps a little bit less "nice" due to its success - prices are quite high and service was polite but not particularly pleasant and it feels a bit like the place is resting on its laurels. There is nothing obviously wrong with it and I guess that without expectations I could have given it 4*, but I just don't think it fully delivers on its reputation and was a bit disappointed.

Although a tourist favored restaurant in old town Geneva we found the food to be the most excellent of the many restaurant visits throughout our 11 days across Switzerland. Many traditional Swiss offerings. I guess most tourists order fondue based on the “let me guess…you want fondue” from the waiter to take our order. Ha!ha! We surprised him by ordering a variety of other items, including veal Zurich style with Rosti, steak tartare, and a mixed salad. All were amazing. The trio dessert and creme brûlée were a delight to end the meal.
