My family (husband and teenaged daughter) ate here recently for dinner - we were seated without a reservation and were immediately attended to by Hans, the absolutely charming owner. The fondue was fabulous and the personal service from Hans was amazing. In addition to his lively conversation, he offered great recommendations on what (and what not!) to order. The food... More

After a lovely meal we had some very tasty deserts. Relaxed atmosphere and very comfortable. Also, seemed very clean. Would highly recommend and would... More

The owner has personality greater than world, constantly on the floor looking after his customers in a very delicate and considerate manner. Atmosphere. Only a few blocks away from the noisy 'cafe' strips the place offers a unique experience to have lunch/coffee or a glass of wine or a pint of beer. Was there with my 4yo child and he... More

We were looking for a fondue restaurant and found this little Swiss restaurant in a small alley. Charming place and a very friendly owner. The fondue was excellent.

After a long day of visiting the city, my mother, sister and I wandered by Chamäleon. Being Swiss, we were drawn in by the Swiss flags and felt immediately welcomed by the owners smile and kindness. The place is charming, inviting, and clean. We had drinks, a salad, and a cheese fondue. It was delicious and plentiful. At the end... More

The servive does not know what cheese is used, surprising for a restaurant being specialised in fondue. the servive itself is not good, from booking, to welcome to service. When does anyone competent opens a fondue place.... More

Ina a very heart of Vienna, piece of peace. Nice cheese fondue, and even better service. Just off Saint Stephan square. Happened to be there on Christmas Eve.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
