It especially appeals to eaters with specific wants and needs — eat as much or as little cheese as you want! In order to showcase a dish truly fit for everyone, we have compiled a list of our favorite top 10 fondue restaurants in Atlanta!
Billed as a “French-inspired, American Steakhouse,” Viande Rouge offers a wide selection of French classics. On their menu, you will find many French-influenced favorites such as escargot, poutine, and beignets. Of course, the menu would not be complete without fondue. Their fondue features a blend of cave-aged Gruyere and Emmentaler, two classic types of Swiss cheese. Finally, the pairing is complete with sides of local baguette and Fuji apples.
Located in Buckhead, Yebo Beach Haus specializes in the fusion of South African and American flavors and is another one of the top fondue restaurants in Atlanta.

As you may have been able to guess from this restaurant’s name, Kurt’s Euro Bistro does not limit itself to just one European cuisine.

Executed similarly to Viande Rouge’s fondue, Kurt’s Swiss Emmentaler and Gruyere fondue come with apples and a delicious baguette for dipping!
