Welcome to our Après Ski Fondue Chalet at Café Select open everyday from 7 pm. In the winter months we serve Fondue & Raclette in our cozy backroom alpine lodge behind our kitchen. We also offer our regular menu items. We generally have two seatings (7pm and 9 pm). Unfortunately due to our current POS system we temporarily can only take cash.

    We booked a table in the 'apres ski chalet' for fondue on Saturday night. We arrived to a moody receptionist who took us through the restaurant and out through the kitchen to a room which had been badly decorated with skis and some ski stuff but was essentially a converted store room. We weren't shown to a table and were left to it so we sat a free one. As we sat at the table completely ignored the kitchen staff kept bringing rubbish bins and food from the kitchen though the room past the table and out through a back door and down some stairs - not entirely sure this complies with health and safety laws and was really unpleasant and freezing cold every time they opened the door. The serving staff finally came over asked if we were having wine as she was going to the front so would save her a repeat trip - we said no. She then proceeded to ignore us some more and serve another couple at the bar. We sat and watched the kitchen staff drag more bins and retrieve food from the store for another 20 mins and then decided that nothing was going to get any better so we got up and left. No one seemed to care or ask where we were going and that pretty much sums up the whole place.

    What a find! Such a cozy place to have dinner on a cold night, felt very in the know walking through the kitchen to get to the back room. Loved that there were several choices for the fondue and that we could mix and match. Service was friendly, thoughtful, and attentive—the second we needed more bread cubes they were there, drink orders promptly filled. Very cute decor, the disco ball made us feel right at home!

    The cheese fondue was spectacular. The ambiance makes you feel like you just finished a day at the slopes in the Swiss Alps. Going behind the kitchen “Goodfellas Style” adds to the experience. The service was a little slow and the waitress forgot about our drinks, but overall this is a great place for a date night. Also- feel free to skip the chocolate fondue. It’s good, but nothing special.

    We were at the back room and it is really noisy. We ordered foundue for 4, and they served a plate with just 4 pieces of apple, 2 tiny cold potatoes to share...the cheese is really good but the sides that came with the foundue to dip inside the cheese they are not good at all. It does not worth the money and is cash only. They should improve a lot the food to dip in the cheese.

    Food was great. Good value. Service was just ok mostly because there was only one waitress for the whole room.

    What a great experience! The classic fondue was exceptional. We dined in the “Swiss Chalet” tucked in a hidden room behind the kitchen. What a treat! I highly recommend this spot.

    Great little hidden restaurant with an intimate dining experience and excellent food and service. Would recommend for anyone trying to impress a date or just looking for a cool place to eat.
