We visited this restaurant with a school group. Traditional fondue was served, which was quite good. For dessert we had a sort of apple pie (I don't know the real name of the sort of pie) and ice cream to top it off. Delicious. The restaurant is big and has an alpine theme. One could argue that it was a... More

A very touristic place with good fondue and other Swiss traditional meals. A must see if you are coming from abroad and want to leave the swiss experience. A band sometimes plays traditional music. Service is ok. You need to book in advance.

If you were looking for the Switzerland you saw in the Heidi movie, you'll find it here. Edelweiss aims to please those looking for the folksy alpine stereotype. They even have a guy playing one on those really long wooden Alpine horns--and he'll let you try it. Another guy played Edelweiss on the cow bells. We had the fondue which... More

One of the place to be if you want to enjoy the kitsch atmosphere of Swiss alps without leaving Geneva. Don't expect to spend a quiet evening there, the place is crowded and noisy, a unique opportunity to listen to live musical saw and alps horn. The fondue was excellent, but a bit pricey, as usual in Geneva.

Located in the hotel of the same name was very touristy but I loved it since yes i am a tourist. The fondue was quite tasty though expensive. I loved the live music, guests were even allowed to come and try to use that big horn they use here in Switzerland.

The place is geared for large groups and tourists, but does a hearty fondue. Not the best in Geneva, but gives you a fix. The large groups means service is at a premium. The baby potatoes are great... good to go at least once while in Geneva.
