We were only in Gruyere 3 nights but ate here twice. The restaurant itself is a true Swiss chalet so is an experience in itself. The staff, and the food were excellent. Highly recommend it.

We always ate fondue in Switzerland, especially in regions known for cheese. We were sadly disappointed here. Service is great, but the cheese had no flavor. How is this possible in the cheese capital of Switzerland?

Best fondue of my Switzerland trip, me and my wife split a portion and it was more than enough. Served with gherkins, potatoes, bread and picked onions.

A fairly small and popular restaurant in the village of Gruyere. Not a big menu but that does not matter when you are faced with the choice between a cheese fondue or a raclette. In my book the raclette wins. A very good wine list...More

Go to the Chalet when you are in Gruyère. The fondue is delicious!!! My boys had macaroni which were also marvelous! I still have the sweet memory of the fondue "moitié - moitié" 🧀

Depends on time of year of your visit, if you want to lodge at the chalet and want to go during the winter months, I would suggest at least 4 months prior; if for just lunch/dinner, a day ahead.

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.
