It's been over a year since we were there and really did not appreciate this type of meal if you could call it that. Expensive for what it was and not that great.

This is the most amazing fondue place I have ever been to. The traditional swiss fondue and raclette were beyond delicious. I was too full to even eat chocolate fondue and I NEVER don't get chocolate but the main courses were too good to stop eating. The owner was so sweet and inviting - she made the experience even better!!!... More

Been going to that place on and off since 2007. Always a great experience. Will be back in December and definitely will go there.

Since the first visit was a success, where we enjoyed our Raclette so much, we decided to return and give it another try. As good as the first visit, and with a friendly atmosphere! Raclette again of course, what else, although there are also Cheese Fondues that are worth a try. A little of the Alps in the Caribbean Islands...that... More

Cheese Fondue and Raclette are both part of my heritage, and I am basically addicted to it! What a surprise to find such a restaurant in the Caribbean Islands, and what a surprise to get such a friendly service, great quality cheese and cold cuts in a warm and cosy atmosphere. For a minute, we just thought we were in... More

My husband and I go here every time we visit the island. It is a unique experience in that it offers authentic Swiss and French fondue in the Caribbean. We always get the champagne fondue and it is divine! Add some meat and potatoes and you have what is probably the best fondue outside of Europe - no joke. The... More
