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.

We visited this chalet for the third time over a few years and it is as always delicious. Setting is very cozy, cabin is rustic, servers are very kind, and the food is just delicious and fresh. Very family friendly as well with cute little baby seats. It's romantic for a couple as well. Reserve a window seat in advance.

We were down this way collecting our son from college and he booked this place for our lunch. It was great.
Fondue is such a great experience and even better when you are on authentic surroundings in a tiny village.
We had dried meat followed by fondue for four (3 adults and 2 kids) and we only had space for one dish of delicious meringue with cream between us!
Learn a couple of words of French to make it easier, although the menu has pictures :-)

Has the feeling of rustic Switzerland with all the cheese dishes you could ask for. We had the fondue and were very happy with it. Servers mainly speak French, but one helped us in English.

This is a typical fondue chalet. No frills, just gets right down to business. Very quick service and open all day. We ordered the fondue with dried meat, which was a local dried beef. If you are just two people, ordering just one with dried beef is plenty!! Way too much food. Save a little room for dessert, the raspberries with cream is outbid this world good. You will did just what you are looking for, and will leave stuffed!!

We had both fondue and raclette together with double cream meringues and I have to say that they were the best I had since a very long time ! The way the raclette is presented is quite original too.. the setting is this very typical small but cosy Chalet where service is convivial and friendly. You feel like you could eat there everyday..
A true Swiss experience and not to be missed while visiting Gruyères !
