From the fondue to the Portuguese tiramisu everything was exceptional. We had traditional fondue, mushroom fobdur and various steak items all of which were exceptionally presented and tasted great. Chocolate fondue and tiramisu and ice cream desserts were a delicious end to the meal. Thank you for a great experience.

On a cold winter night, we crossed the bridge from our hotel and ended up in Le Boel. The atmosphere and setting is ok, the food was ok ( 3 out of the 4 dishes were good ). But the bottle of red wine (Primitivo) served by the waiters was as cold as the water in the lake. We tried... More

I came often to this restaurant for lunch. Food is tasty, portions are large (thick-cut steak is amazing), wine is good, what more could you ask for ?

The owner is present every day giving a cozy atmosphere to the place. The kitchen is clean and fast and the fondue is really something else!

I just had a dinner at this restaurant. It is conveniently located in the old town; far enough from the crowd and in a nice and small square. Service was ok. I had a steak that honeslty think is one of the easiset food people may have. A traditional and simple steak...rare cooked. Well it was pretty cold inside and... More

My wife and I enjoyed their very accommodating staff and sitting outside to enjoy a perfect fondue with morel mushrooms. As we were leaving, extreme lightning, thunder and rain struck. The kind owner asked us to come back inside and he bought us a round a drinks while we waited out the worst of the storm.

We dropped into Le Boel on a rainy Monday evening. Warm welcome and explanation of the menu. It seemed like no one else were out this evening and we were the only guests. Ordered salad and rabbit. Fresh and crisp salad a appetizer and a very good rabbit ragu. A local wine, Coeur de Clémence Gamaret, was a first for... More

Do not eat there unless you like impolite-almost rude waiters, dirty forks and watching Portuguese football during your expensive dinner. Very unsatisfied..

They have this 3 course meal which cost about 19 CHF, which my friends and I ordered. For myself, I ordered the fish. When it was served, I was shocked; the portion really looked pathetic. A few pieces of fish even had bones in it. As for the potatoes, it tasted really raw. For someone who really loves eating potatoes,... More
