If you go there often, the friendly workers will become more and more friendly. If you order the fondu, your mouth will explode with delight. Ladies, don't drop the bread in the fondu, or else you will have to kiss the chef! Fun, enjoyable, tasty...More

Not so many old European foods restaurant left nowadays, so the Swiss Chef is a good find. My wife and I wanted something that we have not had for years, a Swiss Fondue. It was really good, including a splash of liquor (kirschwasser) with the...More

Great, great, great! The Swiss Chef is always a great dining experience - Chef Ueli, July, Rigo, Fritz and Monique each add a special touch to make sure everything is as you desire. The fondue is amazing and the roasted pork shank simply can't be...More
