“Excellent Fondue! Service par excellence”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Yes, a really Swiss restaurant in Lima, Peru… of course it had to be at the Swissotel. We were invited by the Manager Sales for a site visit, and he has been working there for as long as the hotel has been existence 17 years and really knows the ins and outs of the property.

Meal consisted of three courses of fondue and fondue and eyes more fondue… really perfect meal if you love things bubbling away.

Started with a traditional Gruyere fondue which was really quite yum, followed by a meat fondue which was nice as it came with some Peruvian condiments such as rocoto (Peruvian spicy aji chutney). What I found paired real well was the bread, authentic cheese fondue and the rococo!

To complete the meal, we had a Toblerone chocolate fondue with fine chopped almonds, which was served with biscotti, bite size brownie and cake, and an assortment of fruit including kiwi, strawberry, banana, pineapple and melon. And if all that isn't enough to eat with your fondue fork, they give you a spoon to lap up the deliciousness that the chocolate fondue is.

To complement the wonderful service, is professional service with a smile. Most Peruvians don't like to venture outside their comfort zone of Peruvian cuisine and so they really explain every little item.

Very impressed with the service at Swissotel!

“The best choice”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

I never thought the food I was served was going to be that tasty. Apart from that, the service was unique as the ladies made us feel really comfortable. Even though the price was a bit high, I think it was worthpaying for the food we got.I highly recommend this well decorated and cosy place where you make believe as if you were in Switzerland.

“I do not like cheese.”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I am not a cheese lover, but this place is great! We had traditional fondue, then huancaina and also pizza, the cherry on top was the Toblerone fondue (chocolate). The service was outstanding, very friendly and well trained personnel. I highly recommend this place if you are near the Swiss hotel in Lima.

Fondue and raclette were okay but nothing to write home about. However, completely overpriced and ladies serving us had very little knowledge of food, and kpet saying things althought we had warned them that our friend in the table was Swiss.
