Excellent Swiss food in beautiful setting and view

We went here for Easter lunch... it is a very beautiful setting with traditional Swiss alpine food. A must if you are traveling through the Vaud area. A very young waiter was very courteous and all the staff were quite polite.

The Au Chalet had been on my list for some time and then I finally got around to it - taking my son and his girlfriend for fondue on a cold day. The service was good and the fondue was as well! The atmosphere is like a mountain chalet - the best for enjoying a fondue!!!

You can take the funiculaire to reach the restaurant; it overlooks Vevey, where you can see the lake and mountains. The food is good but a bit overpriced.

A romantic setting at the top of the funicular. The menu is varied and the food was good. We were one of two tables being served during the lunch hour. Not sure how they can stay open with such a lack of business. We felt like they wanted to hold us hostage so someone would be there in case someone... More

Nice location overlooking like Geneva. Service was friendly but not competent. Ordered a bottle of red wine, but apparently they run out of that one. Ordered a different one and the waiter delivered a different year, claiming it was better. Anyone who buys wine knows that prices are not the same for a 2011 bottle and 2012 bottle. Followed up...

Very nice place to have lunch or perhaps dinner. Fantastic view of the surrounding area, mountains, Lake Geneve and nature. I have made many pictures of course...
