Celebrating at Swiss Vieux Chalet

We celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary one Sunday after our wedding date. This year it fell on a Friday (to the day of our wedding over a decade ago) and due to our commitments that day and the next (I was principal sponsor at a wedding while the wife attended to errands.), we decided to lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. We haven't been to Vieux Chalet for some time and missed eating there. However, I didn't have their contact number so it was good that they did have a website and the information was there. It was nice to hear the familiar voice of Rico, their maitre d', who easily remembered us and took our reservations. We already knew we would have a good lunch after our visit to the site of our future home somewhere in Antipolo.
It always feels like home when we're at Vieux Chalet
Luckily for us, we were early and we had the place to ourselves
The place is perfect for get-togethers with friends and families, and, of course, dates with a special someone
There's a lot of stuff in the restaurant, part of the collection of the Hassig Family who owns the Swiss-themed restaurant.
Artwork blending with the Christmas decors in the restaurant
Iced lemongrass tea - most of the ingredients of their food and drinks are derived from their farm in Antipolo
Italian Farmer's Soup
Cream of mushroom soup
Fettuccine Alfredo
Ricotta Spinach Ravioli in Al Panna Sauce with Truffle Oil
Five Cheese Grilled Pizza - that's their homemade hot sauce that's really quite hot
A surprise dessert of Swiss Chocolate Cake with homemade ice cream

Vieux Chalet also has a bed & breakfast for those intending to stay in Antipolo to explore not just the restaurant but other attractions in this city. Contact and other information are in their website.

Our special thanks to Rico for the great service!
