This time we even found a piece of bread in our fondue... probably taken from portions already served before us. Service wants to be funny but isnt. Place is filthy and deserves to close

The Chalet Suisse is our favourite fondue place in Lausanne. We spent New Year's Eve here again in the past and came back this year because we had a very good time. Lovely place, and good service!!!

Being a Canadian we have Swiss Chalet everywhere so I did a double take when I saw Chalet Suisse LOL. It is not part of the chain. It has a fresh and appetizing menu with lots of fondues and savory swiss dishes. Yummy
