Chäsalp is a former farm on top of Zürichberg, where fondue and raclette are now served in the ancient and recently renovated stable. This gives you a kind of alpine-hut experience, which makes the extra bit of travel up the hill well worth it. It’s usually quite busy with both locals and tourists, especially on Saturdays and Sundays, when they do a good brunch. While there are 17 different kinds of fondue on offer, we recommend sticking to the house blend or the classic moitié-moité (we very much liked both). They have meat and Swiss style pasta too, but remember, this is the Cheese Alp (Chäsalp), not the steak hut. Take tram 5 or 6 (12 minutes from main station) to Kirche Fluntern and then bus 751 will drop you off right in front of the restaurant in only five minutes.
