A fun place if you want to have fondue. It is really very good fondue and for me it was the first time so I enjoyed it even more. The building is really nice with shafts of light coming in from the roof creating a lovely warm ambience. Highly recommended if you want to do something typically touristy!
Tour was decent, but nothing to write home about. I probably learned more about making cheese watching a 7 minute video on YouTube than I did on the tour, but it was cool seeing some of the process in person. The restaurant was delicious though, my entire table of three shared a pot of delicious fondue. And our waitress was definitely in the top 5 waitresses I've had in my entire life. The gift store was pretty decent also, but I wish they had more cheese to choose from. Anyway 5 stars for the fondue and waitress, I wish I knew her name so I could give her the props she deserves.
