“Nice stab fondue!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Nice and surprising place in the countryside but close to the city. Nice renovated farm, Swiss typical, the restaurant is in a revisited stab. You will have your meal having the bunnies running outside looking at you.
Fondues are good, we tasted 3 different ones. Love the Chäsalp specialty.
Really cool!!!!! they give you big postcards at the end. They take care of the posting for you for free.
Need to come come back for the brunch!

“Great outdoor place for brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Ideal place for Summer time brunch and perfect for a family, kids can play with the rabbits and watch the cows and generally run around on the grass. The buffet brunch is really delicious and you pay by height! Quite novel :-)

“A "cheesy" place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Granted, Chasalp is as touristy as it gets when it comes to fondue places. Nevertheless, their selection of fondue is impressive and I really like that you can get a "one-person" serving which makes it fun for everybody to get a different fondue and you can sample across the table.

Sunday brunch is great, especially in summer when you can sit outside and enjoy the view.

“Touristic but nice - and a very large fondue selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

It's a bit touristic, but it has a nice atmosphere and especially the possibility to try multiple fondues is very nice!

“Cheese heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We smelt our way there! Tucked out the way our noses led us there. The fondue is totally amazing, a must if you go to Zurich. A good 30mis from town via tram and bus.
