Had a wonderful meal, today. Very child friendly. It was half term in Switzerland 🇨🇭. So the town was a tad crowded. Tried to eat at the cheese factory restaurant but told there would be an hours wait. We have eaten here many times and the staff are so friendly. So instead of joining the mass coach parties that had... More

We stayed over night in this beautiful village on a hill at the lovely restaurant & hotel La Fleur de Lys. The smell of the Gruyeres Fondue fills the streets in the afternoon, inviting you to come sit on the patio of the restaurants and have a delicious cheese feast! 1 Gruyeres fondue with a basket of bread, 1 Raclette...

When in Switzerland!! Delicious cheese fondue. The veal was also delicious. Friendly service. Closed very early on a Sunday night (7pm) but I think that is usual for the village and everyone just ate early!

We ate lunch here while in Gruyeres on the Chocolate Train excursion. We were lucky enough to snag an outdoor seat, looking over the main square of Gruyeres. Our server pointed out an English menu to us. We had cheese fondue (of course) and rosti. Prices were comparable to what we saw throughout Switzerland, maybe a bit less. Service was... More

We've visited the castle & the Giger-museum with our dutch-american friends. Somebody wanted to eat "Bratwurst" so we went looking for a restaurant, which would offer this in a menu or a meal. We found it in this restaurant here. You could order all kind of things, but also local specialities from Fribourg. Our friend got his Bratwurst (even if... More

We understood that food would be expensive here, so that didn't surprise us. We had checked the reviews ahead of time, so we knew to ask about the "back patio," which did not disappoint (beautiful view!). The food choices were somewhat limited, but we were able to put together a great meal for each of our varying tastes, and we... More

I'm not a fondue person. but the others ordered it -- the Gruyere was tasty and smooth over the bread. The desert of berries was topped off with real-cream -- yum yum. Waitress were pleasant in their service, cordial to us, polite throughout. Nice day and outside patio tables were full - - so be aware.

I had dinner here one night with my family, and chose this place because some of the pure "Swiss" restaurants in Gruyere will only serve cheese (fondue, raclette) which was no option for me. I needed meat! So this place is a good choice if you want need to cater to different tastes. The cheese fondue was excellent, the meat... More
