About
In the Swiss-Chalet restaurant swiss cuisine with its finesse and complemented with popularities from around the world. Dishes are prepared with selected products from the region and wisely combined with specialities from afar. On two floors and four different Stuben the cosy ambience invites you to linger. More than 20 cherry brands from the region are waiting to be sampled. The Cheese Fondue is served exclusively in the Bränte on the groundfloor. We are proud to be a distinguished member of the Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, Caveau de Sabrage of the Confrérie du Sabre d’Or as well as a participant of “ächt SCHWYZ”. The breakfast for our Schloss-Hotel and Swiss-Chalet Lodge guests will be served from 7am untill 10am on the ground floor. In summer time we serve our dishes as well as the breakfast on the terrace in front of the Swiss-Chalet.

They offer a fantastic brunch with a good selection of cheeses, cold cuts, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, eggs and more. And of course: free flowing champagne. The meat offered for the lunch bit was very tasty. The atmosphere is lovely. Staff is hit and miss -...More

Dear Skdotave Thanks for this wunderful review! Sorry for the experience with our staff. We increased the price for the brunch, because we included mineral water for all the people. Best regards Jeannine & Karel Nölly Swiss-Chalet Merlischachen

We loved the atmosphere at this restaurant. Very unique and truly a Swiss experience. The entrees were pricey by US standards with small portions (45 Euro for a small plate of stroganoff). I would still go back if staying at the hotel.

This is our go-to restaurant when we can't be bothered to cook. Having visited many times, the food is consistently good and the service amiable. The setting is also beautiful. Highly recommend.

Excellent setting and great traditional decor. Service is very friendly and attentive. Good carpaccio and tatar starters. Went for the burger, which was very good indeed; extremely tasty. Apricot strudel with cassis sorbet was well worth trying. Recommend.

It is supposed to be typical Swiss dining. It does have indeed the typical exorbitant Swiss prices but for the rest not much. Nice location and intimate restaurant but definitely not remarkable food. I will not go back.More
