This was such a nice sunday easy morning, the countryside was all covered with snow and so nice to see the little rabbits through the window...\the buffet is amazing, cheeses are superb, proper scramble eggs, good bacon, nice champagne soup... Waitresses could improve their smiles though...

I enjoyed a Sunday brunch at Chäsalp together with a group of friends. The atmosphere is charming and Chäsalp is very kids friendly. I liked what was on offer at the brunch buffet, including some finger-food pieces of quiche directly from the oven and soup. In addition you could order omelette, which is prepared for you in the kitchen and... More

The restaurant looks like a swiss chalet. There are bunnies outside, you can see them through the windows! I loved the bunnies! The food is great, I took macaroni with morels, it was delicious! There are many sorts of fondues and they are all very good.

15 minutes outside Zurich centre in a rural setting sits Chasalp, a Swiss restaurant in a traditional pine wood 'cabin'. Great atmosphere with, unusually, pet rabbits overlooking the main restaurant! Fun, casual service. Lots of fondues including mushroom; chilli; truffle; champagne and bacon. Too much Kirsch served which felt like a good idea at the time. Really good fun. Ideal... More

Chäsalp is clearly and by far the best place to have Fondue and other traditional dishes. Not only fancy and charming but also the good is really good. Just a few minutes away from Zürich and even very reasonably reachable by public transport!

Tasty fondue, and they were happy for us to have 4 different types of fondue between the four people - many restaurants have a two-person minimum on each flavour of fondue. Lovely restaurant, feels a little bit like a wooden chalet once you are inside. Would recommend, although easier to get to with a car than with public transport.

Basically moderatly stronge local cheese melted and mixed with salt, garlic, and cherry schnapps. We had a bowl of bread, bag of potatoes, and sides including pickles, pickled onions, pieces of ham and fruit (banana... More

I know that this is a place very well renowned for fondue. However, the fondue we got was just absolutely below standard. It was not homogenious as it should be and accordingly, the taste was aweful. The waitress just told us that it looks a bit odd, but that was it. No intention to replace it, no intention to offer... More

The ultimate address for the ultimate fondue experience. You should definitely go for the all you can option. You might regret it the day after, but not in the long run. Morels fondue and bacon fondue were the best among those we tried.
