OK, the best fondue is still mine, but to be fair, I will say they make excellent fondues. We enjoyed the truffle one (I would have liked to have only that one) and the traditional "half and half". We enjoyed delicious white wine "Chateau D'auvernier" from Switzerland. Would also like to thant Mr.Ken Cheung Ho Kiu who was our waiter.... More

Have been to this restaurant countless times, probably 100 or more. It is very cosy as it is rather small, and one feels one is in a small restaurant in Switzerland (where we have been many times) instead of being inside a restaurant in modern day Hong Kong Peninsula. Service is friendly and efficient, led by Ping, the Manager. We... More

First of all, it is not easy to find... I doubt if anyone could find the restaurant without staffs pointing out. Even the entrance of a restaurant is very small. But once inside, the environment is very nice... warm and decor with dark wood, very Swiss! The staffs are very welcoming and attentive - That is a given, after all... More

We never thought we'd have cheese fondue in Hong Kong, but after a month of travel in Asia, it sounded great and the TA reviews were good, as well as the openrice.com reviews. We had lunch there and did not regret it one bit. Lovely house salad followed by the fondue. Nice wine list. Since we usually like to have... More

I went to this restaurant on my last night of an exhausting trip to asia, the food is authentic and properly cooked. I had the foie gras which was sublime and a very good veal and mushroom main, along with a half bottle of Bordeaux red wine from the comprehensive wine list. Great meal highy recommend if you are in... More

I had an enjoyable Sunday set lunch with my son last Sunday at the Chesa. Its decor was wood based and in dark brown colour tone - perhaps the designer was trying to make it to resemble a traditional Swiss cottage. The restaurant was, surprisingly, having few customers by 1.30 pm. A strong smell of the cheese fondue was in... More

It's one of my favorite restaurants, both for lunch and dinner. It is decorated as a Swiss chalet. The raclette and cheese fondue are highly recommended.

Swiss food in Hong Kong is not the first thing that comes to mind. Staying in the hotel and pouring, I decided to stay in and try this restaurant. The food was good. Expensive for the quality of food. The decor is a bit depressing as this has no windows and very dark wood.

I gather this restaurant has been around for a long time. It certainly feels like it and not in a good way. The menu is boring and outdated, the staff seem very jaded and the quality of the food is just meh. There is so, so much better in this great city.
