This was very entertaining. Great show. None of the people in our group liked the food. Too bad. But the service was fine! They are used to tourists, so understand us well!

Having read the previous reviews before going, I expected this to be "cheesy", but was delighted by how good the food was and by how authentic the entertainment was. Yes, it's Swiss culture set up as entertainment for tourists, but I'm Swiss (my parents are...More

Yes it is pricey and I would definitely suggest reservations...but it was worth it! We had a blast and jumped on stage, but you must experience this party. And the fondue isn't bad either!
