They have an incredibly varied list of desserts! Many have some sort of liquor in them, just in case you are dining with little ones. I opted to have a Coupe Danemark dessert for dinner tonight! Many entrees are quite filling on their own so...More

While passing through Gruyere, we enjoyed a late lunch on a terrace overlooking the old town. We enjoyed cheese salads and cold cuts, featuring the world renowned local cheese. The service seemed a bit slow and "tourist weary" but we were dinning at 2 after...More

It has a nice setting - inside the chalet or you can also sit outside in the open air. The food is good as we had ordered fondue and raclette.

Excellent fondue, made with wine and cheese and served with silverskin onions, gherkins, crusty bread and delicious baby potatoes. Staff are well organised and able to cope with groups and individuals.

Description
Welcome to the Chalet de Gruyères L'è avui le lathi de la Grevîre k'on fâ lè mèyà fremâdzo! or welcome to the Chalet de Gruyere, says the shepherd from Gruyere with a glow in his eye. He is proud of his origins, just as he is proud of the recipes he inherited from his father: that of the Gruyere cheese and the Fribourg Vacherin - two wonderful cheeses from the region whose reputation have gone way past our borders for decades. Every summer, the shepherds and their flocks go up to the high pastures of Gruyere for several months. The rough and tasty grass, mixed with the Alpine flora, gives the milk its particular flavor. In the evenings at the chalet, after they have milked the cows, the men with sun weather-beaten faces already know which flavors will prevail from the many hectares of wild flower meadows.
