This chalet-style restaurant serves up cheese-heavy Swiss classics in a friendly atmosphere.
It's a way out of the centre but this little place is worth the journey. Serving rich and velvety fondue in a traditional Swiss environment (chalet-style furnishings, cow motifs), Le Gruyérien is great for a casual night out in a friendly atmosphere. Choose from a classic moitié-moitié (half vacherin, half gruyère cheese), a slightly lighter vacherin fribourgeois or a goat’s cheese version and settle down to dip and swirl your bread in this melted loveliness. Once you’ve fought over la religieuse – the delicious crusty bit at the bottom of the fondue pot – cut through the fat in your stomach with a traditional shot of schapps. Service is speedy, the staff are friendly and it’s popular – so book ahead.
