Best Meal

Dining at Chesa at the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong was the best meal we had in our 2 week visit to China and Hong Kong. Just the cheese fondue would have made it a highlight, but we also ordered a lamb and a veal dish. The chocolate fondue with fruit and brownies would have been enough, but we... read more

This is the dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. Taste very good for Seared goose liver and Crab meat pancake. Warm atmosphere for Restaurant. The professional service and warm attitude from Manager make us feel comfortable.

The problems with this restaurant started even before I arrived. A friend and I were going to an 8 pm concert at the Cultural Centre across the street. We thought we would go to Chesa as soon as it opened for dinner service at 6.30 pm. A booking might be difficult on a Saturday evening, but we thought it would... More

As a family with many connections to Switzerland, my son was keen to take us to try the food at La Chesa during a recent visit to Hong Kong. We all fell for the Bundnerfleisch, followed by raclettes - the fondue was tempting, but it was bit too hot outside. The dried beef was delicious, the raclette a bit spread... More

After having two amazing trips to Switzerland, my husband fell in love with the interior of Chesa. It actually feel just like you are in Switzerland. The food and fondue was fantastic (a nice break from days of delicious Dim Sum and noodles). The service was incredable also. It is romantic and a fun experience!

When you first enter the restaurant, you cannot feel that you are in Hong Kong! very cozy atmosphere with great people! The size of restaurant relatively small (need to book in advance). However, the service and food quality is very good! We started with Chesa salad and continued with the cream Barley soup(amazing!) / Motie Motie Fondue / Hamburger Rostie... More

Two days into my four day stay with the Peninsula Hotel, and I must say that my dinner experience with Chesa has been a low point. My main meal for HKD320 was a chewy, fatty beef that seemed extremely overpriced for the quality. I did ask for my horseradish to be left on the side of the dish, which was... More
