My wife had the veal Vienna style, while I had a bacon wrapped smoked pork tenderloin. Both entrees were perfection. The chocolate fondue was an excellent toppwr. There was one slight serving hitch, but was handled quickly and efficiently.... More

Having enjoyed fondues more than once in the birthplace of fondue, Switzerland, we can honestly say that we know and appreciate the difference between quality fondues and wannabes. This is the real thing. The right blend of authentic cheeses plus black truffle oil make for an exquisite cheese fondue. It was served with vegetables as well as bread, providing some... More

Cheese fondue followed by beef fondue followed by chocolate fondue- fondue heaven. All the courses were beautifully presented by attentive and friendly staff. Don't fill up on the cheese though-there's far too much for a starter!

All of our meals were absolutely delicious. Fondue is their speciality, but also have wild game and European favourites.

Service was excellent. Food was just okay, not memorable. Pretty expensive but on par with the rest of dining. Not worth a return visit.

We were staying at the Chateau and so decided to give this restaurant a try after it came highly recommended by the staff at the hotel. We did not get reservations on the first night but we did for late sitting on the second night that we were staying at the hotel. We started with the cheese fondue with truffles... More

Loved this restaurant. The presentation and dips and dessert was fantastic. Very expensive but if you can splurge well worth it

Not entirely the restaurant's fault... but. Having reserved for a tête-à-tête little fondu meal after a week of backcountry ski, we were shown a great table by the bay windows. The next table was used by the extended family of Mr and Ms Pandemonium. Now..families can have a meal in a restaurant, but they have realize that a restaurant is... More
