“Roesti!”
Review of Le Chalet

Le Chalet
Ranked #83 of 156 Restaurants in Dumaguete City
Cuisines: Swiss
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 September 2013

I ordered a Roesti and Tom Yum. I love Roesti and I rarely get to see it in a menu so I was quite happy to see one. There was nothing extra ordinary about it but I was glad I had it. Tom Yum is something I always order. If I see it in a menu I order it. This tom yum was quite different from the ones I had. The soup on this one was a bit thick and it does seem to get along with my taste buds.

They gave me some toasted rye bread which I felt were a bit burnt but it had with a nice sidings of tomatoes and onions in olive oil. I wish it had some chili. That would have definitely improved the taste and appetite of the guest.

This restaurant has a really good selection of food and drinks... as you will be able to see from the Continental, Thai, Filipino, Swiss/German dishes listed on the menu. The wines aer god too -- at least the one I tried, Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. But it was served far too cold, and the waitress filled the glass too much leaving little room for aerating the wine. Small matter, what DID bother me was the Seafood Special.

On the menu -- and the little blackboard that lists the daily special - this is described as panfried blue marling, prawns and scallops in a Provencale salsa sauce. Well, the fish they served was DEFINITELY not blue marlin. It wasn't even tuna. There is a definite texture to blue marlin, and it's flesh flakes in a certain manner. So, in spite of the big scoop of salsa they poured over the fish, it was very apparent that THAT was not blue marlin.

It was a delicious dish, tasted very well. But it's very annoying to be played for a fool. And even though the price (P395) was pretty affordable and reasonable, I just couldn't get past the fact that I was served fish that was disguised as something else.

So no, this is not a place to come back to, in spite of its ambiance and its variety of cuisines, its location and its wines. Because the bottom line is I can never be sure that I'm actually getting what they tell me I'm getting.
