Quite sophisticated atmosphere and traditional food right in front of the cathedral. Nice service but an international menu could be helpful.

In Fribourg, in my swiss opinion there is 2 restaurants that you have go, and this is one. it's a swiss restaurant , you have to ask in your hotel for a reservation it will be much better.

This restaurant is in a very convenient location right next to the Cathedral. Nicely decorated with very friendly staff this seems to be a typical Swiss restaurant full of locals. The fondue was excellent and reasonably priced given the location and you should definitely try the froid-chaud dessert with warm fruits and ice cream.

I went along on a cold, wet night in November at about 6 PM only to find the place heaving. I managed to get the last seat without booking so would recommend booking ahead. I went for Fondue and was not disappointed. The service is efficient and quick. The surroundings traditional Swiss. Hit the spot with a couple of beers.

I had been wondering about this place for a while and finally tried it and we were all enthusiastic! It is difficult to find bad cheese fondue in Fribourg, however this was amongst the best I've had here, it was delicious! The service was great too, the staff was friendly and always available. I would suggest making a reservation because... More

Fondue is meant to top the list of a romantic culinary experience. It also brings friends or newly acquired acquaintances closer together; it's all about sharing...and the Gothard caters to such an atmosphere. Swiss Cantons have thrived on competing for the claim of the "best" fondue, but after tasting each for a half of a decade, my top choice is... More

We walked passed initially, feeling 11.30am wasn't quite the ideal time for a fondue but the restaurant was bursting so we went in - and what a treat we were in for! We had the Fribourg traditional fondue and rosti and they were wonderful. Cooked to perfection, the staff were very attentive and helpful and there was a great buzz... More

Friendly and attentive. Serves one of the best local grubs if not the best in Fribourg namely fondue and rosti with an ambience to match. Its organised clutter only adds to the experience.
