Essentially for rich tourists. This is a place with a nice atmosphere in wood where we can have fondue. The fondue is OK even if the cheese is a bit strange, not at all the standards we can have in Switzerland. The price is also...More

We visited that restaurant early evening and were lucky to find a table. We had a Swiss Fondue with two small glasses of wine and beer and Coke beforehand. Paid 100 Swiss Franks for that. We asked for some TAP WATER and were told that...More

Went on a Sunday night and the place was very busy - probably need to book in advance as we did. It was very relaxed, with a good buzz of conversation all around us. The staff were all very friendly. We both opted for original...More
