Do you love fondue and you love the lake? We do and we love the idea of the cheeseboat – a brand new restaurant which opened this week! Forget chalet and cosy- this is a very different fondue experience.
NOTE: The Cheeseboat will be open on New Year’s Eve and for a credit of CHF120 you can choose what you’d like off the menu, including drinks.
Situated right in front of the Kempinski – there can be no better spot to watch the fireworks from this year! BOOK NOW.
THE ATMOSPHERE – NOT COSY, CHALET!
We’re talking about a romantic, intimate dining experience on a 30-metre long vintage boat constructed in Vevey in 1960 with seating for 50 people and offering spectacular views of the illuminated lakeside area and lake. The boat is moored off the Quai du Mont Blanc opposite the Brunswick museum – between hotel Beau Rivage and Hotel de la Paix. You’ll easily spot it as it’s lit up and you can reach it through a public ladder.
We love the hip take on fondue eating – with black and white photographs around the interior of the boat of celebrities with famous quotes applied to fondue eating! \
CHAMPAGNE, WHISKY AND NON-ALCOHOLIC FONDUES
The menu comprises an impressive selection of fondues, including champagne, whisky, non-alcoholic and vegan fondue (lactose free cheese).
The cheese fondue is prepared (moitie-moitie) with cheese from Fribourg and Blanc-de-Blanc. Additions include herbs, rose petals, truffles or a 12-year-old whisky. It is served with chunks of black and white bread and starters include dried meat and pickled onions.
We tried the rose petal fondue, which was generous, creamy and lovely. The religieuse – the bit when they scrape off the last bits of cheese into a crust is prepared with scrambled egg = and is yummy.
Dessert options include lime cheesecake (we loved this), carrot cake or meringue with cream.
Fondue prices range from from CHF24 -34 for the fondue (200g per person) The drinks menu includes a wide variety of appetisers, wine, spirits, soft drinks and hot drinks. Group bookings can be made for 6 to 20 people.
The Cheeseboat is the result of a collaboration between two players on the Geneva nautical scene: Balthazar Witzig, owner of Genevaboats and Bérengère Claudé, manager of SWISSBOAT.
