“A slice of Switzerland”
Review of Candlelight Lodge

Candlelight Lodge
Cuisines: Swiss
Description: ( Winter Only) The fully licensed a la carte restaurant and bar has been part of Thredbo folklore for several decades. We feature both Australian and international cuisine, however, a favourite with our patrons and specialty of the house is fondue. Boasting the same unsurpassed views as the restaurant and your room, the bar has European beers and imported Schnapps and fine Australian wine on offer and for those sometimes important not to be missed occasions we also have ski movies running in the bar. A feature of any stay at Candlelight Lodge is to join the other guests in the bar and on the deck to watch the weekly flare run before fireworks light up the mountain each Saturday at 6pm during the ski season.

“A slice of Switzerland”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Located down lots of stairs at Candlelight Lodge this place is a good fun night out.

We come here every year for the fondue, although this year I had the Jaegerschnitzel, which was also good.

You can get cheese, meat and chocolate fondue so we started with the cheese fondue, dipping bread cubes on sticks into it and eating the cheese-laden result.

Then came the broth over kero burned where we speared the meat and stuck it in to cook, then added from a range of sauces and veges.

Finally we had the chocolate fondue, with mini marshmellows, strawberries & little peeled mandarin slices to coat in chocolate and pop into our mouths.

The children shamelessly run their fingers around the almost empty pot, but it is so good it is almost forgivable.

A great family night out, but be careful if the children are too small to be safely around open flames and boiling broth without close supervision - mine are almost all teenagers now.

“Delicious food friendly staff”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

?Stayed on the Candlelight Lodge for ski trip. Ate at the restaurant for dinner one night. The food was excellent and the staff could not have been more welcoming. Had the crispy duck and weiner snitzel. The ice cream dessert in the toffee bowl was to die for. Wish we were there another night, would have loved to have tried the fondue.
