The Chalet Suisse is our favourite fondue place in Lausanne. We spent New Year's Eve here again in the past and came back this year because we had a very good time. Lovely place, and good service!!!

This is a good place for tourists to try fondue, croute au fromage in a pleasant and convenient spot high up in Lausanne. If you have a car and want more authenticity snd quality, go further afield.
