La Fondue

Treat your taste buds to European Alpine Fondue cuisine favorites from the Incline Village, Nevada, a fondue restaurant. La Fondue, a North Lake Tahoe restaurant tradition for over 30 years, offers a great selection of delicious food at affordable prices, plus we provide a cozy Swiss chalet and romantic atmosphere with European ski posters lining the wood-paneled walls. They even offer outdoor dining during the summer. With more than 10 years of experience, they pride themselves on the quality of their meals and excellent customer service. Fondue, French for “melted,” is a traditional Swiss dish made by melting Gruyere or Emmenthaler cheese and wine in a communal pot. Cubes of bread are dipped into the steaming sauce. Modern twists include dipping chicken, prawns, and lamb in different liquids such as hot oil or broth.
