“should be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

Staying at the Palace this January, I have been trying all the restaurants there. One being la Fromagerie. What to expect is a good fondue and other classical cheese dishes like raclette in this restaurant. The truffle fondue and the raclette we had, were very good, so no disappointment there. The italian Maitre D who has been part of the Palace forever was very friendly. So really nothing to complain about, other than the waiter who was absent and blind most of the time we had dinner. We had to basically stretch our arm to take our bottle of wine from the ice bucket and serve ourselves. Not to be expected in a leading hotel of the world 5 stars hotel, but one of the old kink that the Palace Hotel still seems to have a hard time to get rid off; easy and very difficult to change as it is a mix of training and attitude of the people working there that they still need to work on to be the Palace of the 21st century.

“Interestingly ridiculous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

A bit of a farce when you are in the fondue restaurant of one of the most famous hotels in Switzerland if not the World and the cutlery falls apart ! Atmosphere is very chichi whatever that means with a lot of table swapping and air kissing if that's what you like.

“A bit disappointing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013 via mobile

For the price you pay in this place you expect that everything is perfect but it is not.
We have been at the Fromaherie restaurant and paid a fortune for a cheese fondue which was actually pretty good, on the other hand the service was very poor and not professional at all.
