We didn't end up staying as it looked very 'touristy'and the prices were about average for 'traditional' dishes that can be eaten elsewhere with nicer atmosphere.

We were intent on sampling all things cheesy for the Swiss winter, and weren't disappointed. The fondue mix was tasty, the raclette sharp in a good way, served with really good quality new potatoes, the malakoff also nice and crisp on the outside. The service...More

22 people and not a single commercial gesture. We thought that as an any other restaurant we could end a good fondue (with wine, dry meat...) with a little shot on the house. But NOTHING

My friend and I went there last Sunday evening. We ordered a traditional fondue. It was really good. The place looks like an old chalet. Staff members are polite and discrete. A place to go back

The cellar restaurant Valaisanne & Chalet Switzerland, Dumoulin family owned since 1960, is located in the heart of the city of Geneva, surrounded by the Victoria Hall, the Grand Theatre, the Music Conservatory, the Bastions Park and its monument Reformation. This has the distinction of offering typical and 4 different settings: Swiss Chalet, Brasserie, Swiss Village and Carnotzet. Added to this is during the summer, the terrace shaded by plane trees. So every customer does not feel squashed in the middle of the large crowd. The high flow ensures the best quality and freshness of the dishes served. Swiss wines are honored and come, mostly French-speaking cantons. La Cave Valais is known for its many types of fondue and raclette especially raw milk. What is less known is that the card is one of the most varied and provided our beloved Geneva basin. Although logically say typical specialties take center stage, there remains many specialties and bar meals made the reputation of the institution (sauerkraut zürcher geschnetzeltes home with rosti, etc ...) . Not to mention that the two dishes of the day are served at lunchtime are renewed every day and served with a green salad or homemade soup (your choice). Through our various salads into our pasta dishes, menus or stopping on our perch fillets, the supply is diversity in appointments and everything is cooked by a skilled team.
