“Excellent fundue”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Whenever we visit the Chateau we always have the fondue. On one occasion we tried one of the fondue samplers and found that it was simply too large. The cheese fondue and a bottle of Wolf Blass Cabernet we find to be a good combination for us.

We enjoy the Bavarian decor and beautiful wood work. We have never had a window table which after dark doesn't make much difference anyways. The room is dimly lit and benefits from candle light, providing a calm intimate feel.

“Noisey and pedestrian”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

The charm disappears with the noise and the recognition that some of the dishes are also available in the other restaurants at this Fairmont. The windows overlook the lake and are of redeeming value. There are other restaurants in the hotel that are more charming.

“Industrial food”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

The restaurant was full of organized tourist groups and the food is standard and the service is slow
Between groups there is a chance that someone is ready to speak with you

“a very strange setting”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

we had reservations; we told them it was our anniversary; 4 of us; we had requested a table by the window, 3 months in advance; they only have 3 or 4 tables by windows then there is a solid WALL so you will not see the view of the lake and of course that is where we were placed; we were not going to let this ruin anything; however the menu and dinner did; we could not wait to get out of this rest; it was not a comfortable place to dine for dinner on any nite; I feel sure the window tables could have changed the night; but a solid wall??? go figure; we went to deli and had a wonderful dessert!! and fun!

“Fabulous fondue!”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Ate here this evening for my 23rd birthday and the meal was fabulous! I had the traditional fondue - it was the best fondue I have ever had. It came with bread, steamed potatoes and vegetables to dip. My partner had one of the meat fondue options, which came with a wedge of cheese to heat under a lamp and a selection of meats.
For dessert, we shared apple dumplings with a spiced caramel sauce and apple sorbet. Delicious! Especially the sorbet.
The service was excellent - our waiter was very friendly, attentive and informative; particularly in explaining the foods that arrive on your plate!
I would definitely suggest to try the traditional fondue - you will not be disappointed.
