Even our pictures on Facebook were presumed to be in Switzerland with the raclette meal of our choice. Definitely 1 between 2 as recommended by our great server Johnnie. Our daughter in law was very satisfied by her request to eat here.

The cheese fondue was great with just the right amount of kirsch. The wine list is exceptional. Superb wine list. We aren't big oil fans so we opted for the chinoise fondue pot and added chicken. Both meats, beef and chicken were great. I'd have liked a little more veggies though. I requested a side of red cabbage and they... More

Spent a lovely evening at the Swiss Chalet with friendly, attentive service, good food - all around a very successful evening.
