We visited here on a Saturday lunchtime, a lovely cosy restaurant which is very reasonably priced in comparison to the rest of Geneva. The cheese fondue was brilliant. Would definitely go back.

We enjoyed our times and the atmosphere was very local but other places had better fondue and definitely better fries. It might be a matter of taste. The dessert on the other hand was to die for. The meringue was just amazing.
