Great Fondue....

Keep in mind, if your idea of Fondue is The Melting Pot, check your experience at the door. The first thing you will notice when you walk in is the strong, strong aroma of rich cheese. You may not be used to it and it may set you back a step. Give it a few minutes and you will get... read more

This place is smack in the middle of the main street in Zermatt. It is just across from the Museum. It has a great traditional setting and fully booked during the night we went there. I booked ahead so it was fine. Everyone (here in TripAdvisor) said the Fondue is great here so I am excited to try it. No,... More

They have a large selection of different fondues. We liked the one with mushrooms. Excellent atmosphere. Tables are close so we were able to get to know the people at the next table, making the evening more special. Staff was friendly and quick.

Lots of places in Zermatt offer fondue, but this one came highly recommended and we were pleased with our choice. As with most things, the US has adapted the idea of fondue so it wasn't exactly what we were used to, but that actually made it that much better. The biggest shock was that chocolate fondue is not an option.... More

The atmosphere was fun and friendly, but not particularly relaxing. This is a very busy, crowded restaurant. We had read very good reviews, but were not impressed with the meal we had. The salad was fine, but the Raclette was disappointing. It is priced by the portion and each slab of melted cheese comes with 2 small potatoes and NO... More

My wife and I stayed in Zermatt for a week and the first night we wanted authentic swiss fondue. We asked several locals and they directed us to Whymper-Stube, which has been around for 65 years and owned by the same family for the past 16 years. We had the pleasure of meeting the daughter during our dinner. The Fondue... More

central location. if you are not familiar with raclette (melted cheese with jacket potatoes and gherkins), this is a good place to try it. available in portions CHF 9 per plate. If you are very hungry, go for the fondue.
