I chose this restaurant for our only night in Gruyères based on TripAdvisor reviews, and was very happy with the choice. Had we booked, we might have been able to get a table upstairs, which is nicer than the more down-to-earth downstairs. Nevertheless, it did...More

Excellent place to get a traditional raclette. Stick with the raclette or fondue and do without the cold cut plate. Potatoes with cheese should fill you up and go for the dessert! Anything with the double cream goes well.

The raclette, cold cuts etc all super. Authentic Gruyere experience. Service is friendly but a tad slow. But then the experience is to be savoured at a gentle pace.

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.

Description
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.
