Bistro Gentiana Review
A cozy bistro and the region's number one place for fondue, this "café des artistes" dates back to the late 1880s, when it served as the town firehouse. After an Art Deco overhaul, it became a longstanding haunt for those seeking out snails, regional mushrooms, and age-old recipes for cheese and meat fondues. A convivial atmosphere with plenty of regional wines makes for a relaxed dinner. Cheese lovers should try the "Fondue Dinner Gentiana," a three-course extravaganza that includes a platter of local dried meat, as well as a special cheese fondue served with pears, mushrooms, diced ham, pearl onions, bacon, and kirsch. There is also a children's menu. Note there are two dinner services—if you don't want to be hurried out, reserve for the later 8:30 sitting.
