If you are in Switzerland during the winter months you have to eat cheese fondue. This time the choice fell on Raclette Stube (www.raclette-stube.ch) in the heart of the charming Old Town, Zähringerstrasse 16. Raclette Stube is so close to the original as one can get a really authentic restaurant that specializes in one of Switzerland’s trump card; cheese. With its rustic decor combined with a lot of atmosphere and friendly, fast and efficient service Raclette Stube is a must for cheese lovers. As the name suggests, Raclette is served, but also classical fondues with classic accessories like bread and potatoes. The restaurant has a nice ambience, and here one will find locals, students, professors and tourists alike who come together around the rustic tables. Since cheese is a very filling dish, it’s highly recommended to have one of the excellent sorbets that are based on either plum or cherry which is a must in order to digest the food faster. During the high season, this often packed so it is wise to book in advance. Should it be full, one can always try any of the sister restaurants Chässtube Rehalp or Friburger Fondue Stubli.
