Very nice staff, and also spoke English which helped. Good choices on the menu. And a great view of the mountains.

The worst place I've ever been. The personnel was unfriendly and slow. The food was very low expectation. The prices were not reasonable. Will never advise anyone to come

As others have noted, do have the fondue. We were a party of 5, so ordered it for 3, a sausage and frit platter, a salad, and, of course, local wine. Relaxing outdoors with a beautiful view, shared food, and good friends was a perfect Sunday afternoon.

Great cheese fondue, good service and a beautiful spot on the terrace looking out towards the valley and mountains in the sun. Same prices as everywhere else in town. Friendly staff. Great lunch - would visit again!

We tried a little of everything and left happier than we have been anywhere else on this trip. This food was fantastic, so tasty and done to perfection. The specialty salad was out of this world, the Alpine Chowder was hearty(enough to share), and the rosti was to die for. Wish we had more time to come back and eat... More

Very Swiss, very enjoyable, savory, indulgent. Wine was excellent - some local, white- don't remember the name exactly. Meringue with cream to die for. Totally authentic experience. Highly recommend.

Excellent location, great views , great breakfast and good restaurant. The restaurant was the busiest in "town" when we were there, always a good sign. Rooms very cosy, warm and clean, beds comfortable too. We hope to return to Gruyeres when it is green and we will definitely return to this hotel, hopefully same room, The Room with the View!

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!
