“Best Fondue Place Ever!”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Everytime I go to Carmel, I eat here. The best fondue I have had and I have been to Switzerland... The four course fondue is pricey but a must.

“Nothing Special about this place”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

just acceptable food. My husband had substandard lamb chops, not the best quality. I had the veal, just gravy and mushrooms, not a lot of flavor. Nothing special about this place

“Enjoyable fun food”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a cheese fondue for the family and we decide to go to Lugano. We got there quite late but were welcomed. We have two children age 10 & 8 who thoroughly enjoy a good stir of a cheese fondue and this didn't disappoint. Some comments on here don't do the cheese fondue justice but let us tell you, we use to live in Basle in Switzerland and there was no difference between what was served at the Lugano and the restaurants in Basle. Attentive service and we followed up with chocolate fondue which is not our cup of tea but the children liked it. Can't comment on the rest of the menu but the party of Germans next to us seemed happy, or was that the wine?

“Only for bus groups”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

This restaurant in the Barnyard Shopping Centre primarily caters to bus groups. The food is not the best, the service indifferent, and overall not a good experience.

“Swooning over Swiss Fondue”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

We had a wonderful lunch of fondue, salad and goulash soup. The fresh salad greens were simply dressed with the right amount of tangy dressing and the soup was generous and flavorful. But the Swiss cheese fondue was outstanding and it came in ample amounts with tasty bread, vegetables and apple slices for dipping. service was friendly and professional. The manager knows his wines. It is a wonderful find at the entrance to the Carmel valley road, but buried in a shopping center, so be patient in your search.
