I have been many times here but to be honest that was the worst. Extremely pricey and the portions are far, extremely far from generous. They charge big and serve small. I think you will find better options with a better benefit/cost ratio

If you want a real fondue with high quality ingredients you must try this. A very charming place, quiet (be careful if you bring kids, hot dishes passing every time) . Not cheap, but according to quality and the city.

In 1969, it opened in Campos do Jordao, in a house that was across the current location. It was the first restaurant fondues and raclettes city.

At the time, the cheese fondue was canned in Switzerland and had to be mixed with national cheese to please the tastes of Brazilians.
