Raclette Stube is a small, homey restaurant focusing on Switzerland's most famous melted cheese specialities: fondue and raclette. Three types of cheese fondue are on offer: moitié-moitié (half Gruyère cheese, half Vacherin cheese melted with wine and kirsch), pure vacherin (melted Vacherin cheese without wine and kirsch), and valaisanne (cheese fondue with tomatoes). Fondue chinoise (meat fondue) is also on the menu. As its name would imply, Raclette Stube also serves up all-you-can-eat raclette, a Swiss cow's milk cheese that is usually served melted over potatoes and assorted pickled vegetables. There is an ample selection of Swiss wines and kirsch to help wash down all the cheese. Reservations are a must. Table space for this delicious fondue and raclette is limited.
