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.

Food was good but we didn't like the attitude of waiters. One was not smiling at all... If I come back to this city, I will go to another restaurant

チーズフォンデュとテザートを2人でシェアしました。 チーズフォンデュは、とても食べやすく、コクもあり、美味しかったです。ジャガイモとピクルスのセットを1人分注文しましたが、2人で食べてもかなり満腹になります。メレンゲもほどよい甘さで美味しかったです。店内も可愛く、また機会があれば訪れたいです。 We shared the cheese fondue and melange. We loved the rich taste of Gruyere cheese. We ordered one fondue and shared by two, but enough for us. Melange was also good.

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.
