One Swiss Day at Vieux Chalet



Vieux Chalet (means old cottage) is a Swiss Restaurant that's perfectly situated at the mountain top of Antipolo City. Yup! I'm a bit invading Antips lately. :) Although it runs for 30 years already it's still one of the best-kept secret of the city, well thanks to Zomato App for introducing this hidden gem. :)
 I couldn't help but smile because after months of googling and reading blogs about the place finally I'm here! We wanted to catch the sunset so we came in at 5:00 pm and we're the only guest at that time so we took the liberty to roam around first and take pictures. They also have St. Moritz Inn if you're planning to stay overnight.





A collection of teaspoons in every country they visit.




Luckily I reserved a week early so we got the middle table where you can see the best-overlooking view.




They also have a souvenir shop.





Here comes the food!!!

Well, imagine eating in a "Vieuxtiful" place like this?


Surprised! I secretly ordered "Swiss Chocolate Cake a la mode" for him. It's not yet his birthday but this cake is so divine!

 




The place is perfect for romantic dinner because of the spectacular panoramic view of Manila skyline. The tranquility of the sunset and homey ambiance is what I enjoyed the most.  Foods were a bit pricey but it's really worth every centavo.
