Would you order tuna tataki in a restaurant most famous for its fondues? It (actually tuna tataki salad with avocado, from the summer menu) was definitely worth the gamble. We ended up here as the restaurant we had wanted to visit was closed for holidays...More

You just can't visit Switzerland and not have a fondue and/or raclette. So a bunch of us went to Cafe du Midi to satisfy that need. The fondues were very good, and sharing one was all right. It's like having one all by yourself is...More
