SquareMeal Review of St Moritz

It’s not just for wintertime, but old-timer St Moritz sure does warm the cockles, with its accordion music, little wooden chairs & actual beef stroganoff. Its ‘twee’ appeal & cauldrons of attractively priced fondues make it ‘a great place for a get-together with friends’, though its popularity means service can fray at busy times. Try to get a table upstairs, & make the most of the Swiss wine list: to go with any of the five kinds of bubbling cheesy stuff, there’s Fendant de Sion at £16.10 (£9.65 a carafe); if you like Riesling, try the Heida du Valais (£30.65). Bratwurst with rösti is popular at lunchtime, & expats come for slices of veal lathered with cream & mushroom zurichoise sauce. To round things off, chocolate fondue is always a good idea.

St Moritz is the perfect way to banish those winter blues – a twee restaurant on Wardour street split over two floors , decked out Alpine style and dishing out some of the best Fondue in London (of which there isn’t enough). The seating downstairs is a bit cramped and the table next to the main door should be avoided, particularly at Winter. When booking (only by telephone or fax?) , do ask for a table upstairs which is much more comfortable. True, the service can be a little brusque occasionally, but the restaurant is small, very popular and inexpensive so I guess that goes with the territory. A great place for a get together with friends and polish off a cauldron of bubbling cheese and a few bottles.

St Moritz is a lovely, quaint restaurant on Wardour Street. The staff are helpful, but don't fuss too much and in all the times I've been there (which is a fair few), I have never felt under pressure to return the table. I tend to go there about 3-4 times a year, and have never had any problems with the food. The fondue is better than anything I have tasted abroad.

Very poor service!!! They yelled at their customers if they dont return the table in 2 hours. They literally kick them out of the restaurant and keep yelling!! Absolutely unnecessary and will never return again!!!
