Ben and Léo (Benoît Waber and Léonard Gamba) are two young chefs that get famous in Switzerland by participating in a TV cooking contest. Working together, they started to build a network of restaurants in Fribourg with the Café de la Fonderie as a first step, providing a contemporary fine dining experience.
Located in an old industrial zone, hence the name La Fonderie (the foundry in French), and sharing its space with some shops and offices, the restaurant Café de la Fonderie, Ben & Leo in Fribourg is an unusual setting for a fine dining experience, but you will not be disappointed with the content of your plates. The menu is short with a list of fresh products and changing plates inspired by the capabilities of local producers and influences from French culinary techniques or more exotic cuisines. In the evening, a tasting menu is available for 77 francs. The wine list of Café de la Fonderie by Ben & Leo in Fribourg offers a nice choice of Swiss and French wineries. This restaurant is mentioned in the Michelin guide.
