In spite of the government-rated five-star elegance of the hotel that contains this restaurant, it is surprisingly unpretentious and affordable. Dining is possible on three different floors. The lower you go, the more animated the scene becomes. This stone building is located on a cobblestone street across from a medieval arsenal in one of the most colorful neighborhoods of the Old Town. The building was constructed in the 16th century, and this place has thrived as one of the most atmospheric restaurants since its founding in 1957. The three different fondues offered are the best in Geneva. Many Swiss children make an entire meal out of rösti (Swiss-style hash browns). Other specialties include raclette and several pizza and pasta dishes. The winter-only sauerkraut garni is also a savory meal -- made with several types of sausage and pork. In fact, the staff still remembers the day in January 1994 when Bill Clinton dropped in to sample their sauerkraut during a break in political negotiations. Pastas and hamburgers round out the menu here, which should make any child's palate happy.
