With part of the immense wine cellar showing, this intimate restaurant delivers excellent fondue and all accompaniments.

Enjoyed the beef fondue followed by the chocolate dessert fondue with a nice 20 minute gap in between.

Service was fairly attentive and the cosy room led to a pleasant ambience.

The quality of ingredients was top Notch

We had the fabulous fondue lunch at the Post! The thing strips of steak were incredibly tender and tasty. The bread and hot cheese dip amazing. Loved the square platter of all the different dips. Highly recommend this for a special occasion.

The very best restaurants around the world recognise that the single most important thing is the customer - the food, wine, setting can all be lovely, but if the customer does not feel happy and valued then the restaurant has failed in its primary purpose.

Sadly for Fondue Stubli, they forgot this rule.

Our first attempt to eat there was stopped when we were told that our attire of dress shirt, tailored shorts and shoes didn't meet the dress code (it being 30 degrees C outside and in the middle of the Rockies). We condescended to try again the next night, in trousers!

The room itself is lovely - small, low ceiling and intimate. The serving staff were also were pleasant. The fondue itself was tasty, if a little heavy on the alcohol.

As the evening wore on, the temperature in the small dining room soared and so my wife, and some other diners, opened the small windows to allow in some welcome breeze. Within minutes the restaurant manager appeared and informed us, with little sympathy or acknowledgement of our discomfort, that the windows had to remain closed for fear of blowing the smell of fondue through into the main restaurant. When it was pointed out to him that this might have been something that they could have anticipated when planning the restaurant, he responded with a shrug and said there was nothing he could do.

I am sure that when the temperature outside is plunging, eating in this venue will be pleasant.

However, a word to the management of the hotel - you have forgotten that your customers are more important than you. Where you rules are inflexible and your "policies" matter more than the comfort and happiness of the people who are paying your wages, you are on a slippery slope.

The Fondue Stübli is an intimate, authentic Swiss-style room with lovely Alpine decor and an attractive wine cabinet adding to its ambience. We had all three styles of Fondue: Cheese, Meat, Chocolate! The cheese Fondue was fantastic with the most delicious bread used for dipping along with potatoes. We requested apples ( they were kind enough to comply) and it was incredible. This is the real deal (we have had Fondue in Gruyeres and it's is absolutely as delicious and authentic). The meat Fondue was with a tender Chateaubriand along with several dipping sauces like Béarnaise, horseradish, aioli, all fresh and incredible. What more can I say about chocolate Fondue? It's decadent and wonderful. We had great wines suggested by our lovely Swiss sommelier. It was an unforgettable experience for our family.
