A great variety of fondue's on offer (we tried three and shared them) and very friendly service. A nice atmosphere and quite a quirky place.

We had a good evening here. The cheese fondue is a must, and it made for a fun meal experience. Thank you!

The staff here are so friendly - it made our night! Half of our group had raclette, it was superb. The rest of the group had food envy when it arrived.

This restaurant was recommended for raclette and fondue. The five of us tried several different types, with meat, vegetables, mushrooms. All were very good. The menu includes only these dishes, but they know how to cook them. The quality of the cheese, of the meat, and of about everything else was very high. Also the chocolate fondue, our dessert, was...

How L’orto is ranked so low in the list of Sauze Restaurants is totally beyond me. It must be due to the sparse number of reviews…. If so come on you TA’s get reviewing!!! Mrs. HJ is veggie and so she had a cheese fondue and I had a full blooded ‘cook it yourself cow’. The portion was ample for... More

We had the meat grill and cheese raclette the first time and the second time we had 1 cheese fondue and 1 meat fondue. Both... More

If you are a fan of either cheese or meat fondues, this is the place to be! High quality food and much variety in the kind of fondues. Also you can grill at your own table. Very friendly ambiance, nice wines to go with the dishes.

My partner and I visited especially for the raclette that was advertised outside. First impressions weren't great as the restaurant was empty and very dimly lit... Empty probably because people tend to eat later than us in Italy however the food was great and two other groups came in whilst we were sat down which added to the atmosphere. The... More

Lovely little restaurant with a nice atmosphere. We ordered the cheese fondue for 2 and a bottle of wine. The fondue was amazing accompanied by a fantastic meat board. The wine was... More
