St. Moritz: How Do You Fondue?


There are few greater joys than cozying up to a bubbling pot of fondue with friends, and few better places to do it than St. Moritz. It’s virtually impossible to miss the façade on Wardour Street – just look for the only Swiss chateau in sight. Follow your friends through the door, letting the aromas of simmering cheese guide you through the wood-walled space. The normal appetizers are amazing, but may be better saved for a solo visit when the allure of a melty raclette platter or crispy potato rösti draws you in. You’re here for fondue, because with your best buds sitting all around you, tonight is a night for sharing. Whether you go with the traditional bread and cheese of the fondue neuchateloise or the carnivorous meat and oil fondue bourguignon, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to perfect your spearing, dipping, and fork-twirling techniques, hardly ever losing a drop of precious fondue to the tablecloth. After gobbling down what must be an entire wheel of cheese and a basket of bread, see how much headway your crew can make into the dessert fondue. When the last strawberry has been greedily coated in as much chocolate as you can get to stick to it, sit back and take a moment to unwind in the Alpine elegance. Established in 1974, this cozy spot claims to be the oldest Swiss restaurant in London. If they can maintain their focus on fantastic fondue, another four decades are all but guaranteed.
