Description: The Au Chalet - Swiss Restaurant is located in French-speaking Switzerland, between Lausanne and Montreux, above Vevey, on the Mont-Pelerin. Perched high above Lake Geneva in the heart of the Lavaux Terraced Vineyards, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, our magnificent traditional inn with a terrace features one of the most spectacular views of Lake Geneva and the surrounding mountains. In an authentic Swiss wood decor, the Au Chalet restaurant offers you one of the best cuisines featuring local products and dishes. Swiss specialities and traditional dishes, such as fondue, raclette, tomme vaudoise (local soft cheese), croute au fromage (cheese croute), rosti, beef from local farmers, a dried meat platter and Alpine farm cheeses will allow you to savour succulent regional dishes prepared in-house using only the best products from our small local producers.

This restaurant is close by the top station on the Mont-Pelerin funiculare high above Vevey VD. It is popular with groups and families having a meal out.
Limited menu - specialises in fondues. Good open air seating for a warm day. Great views over the lake towards Evian and the mountains beyond incl Les Dents du Midi
In July 2013 I had 3 dcl local wine, a large Weiner Schnitzel, a wonderful meringue stuffed with thick cream for CHFr 79.60 + tip.

This was the 3rd time we ate in this restaurant, the last two times for lunch. But this time, we went there for dinner for the occasion of our wedding anniversary. The food (including their legendary Fondue) was great also the steak which is served almost raw on hot stone where you can cook it the way you find. But, what a view of Lake Geneva and the surrounding vineyards and mountains. There is a free ride with funicular to the restaurant which will take you through beautiful vineyards and breathtaking scenery. Very close by, is Le Mirador Kempinski Hotel which seems to own this restaurant. I would suggest a visit (a few minutes walk) to this hotel for a coffee or a glass of wine and you will enjoy one of the best views of Vevey and Lake Geneva.

We have been to this restaurant several times and the food and service are always good. The view is spectacular, and when forced to sit indoors it has a very nice Swiss feel. It is helpful to be able to book online, and when I mentioned my friend was gluten free, the chef made a special bread for her that evening. The steak is always tender, but not necessarily as flavorful as I would like.

My friend and I took the funicular up for a hike in the vineyards and stopped at this Chalet to have a glass of wine. The wine was some of the best I've ever had and the hiker's soup was delicious. Service was mediocre (we were two young backpacker looking types, so other tables seemed to get much better service). Still, I would go back!

Take the Vevey Funi up and settle in for a romantic dinner for two. Enjoy the city lights! Menu is extensive and very Swiss. Priced average xompared to most restaus. Got the raclette and it was so worth it. Servings could be good for 2 people already! Will come back to try their fondue!
