Over the Monday blues at Chesa
Normally we would be tempted to order the signature chocolate fondue for dessert, but this time we just stuck with the passion fruit chocolate cremeux cake the hotel prepared for us by prior arrangement. I was expecting a rich, dark chocolate type but this one was light and sweet. Typical quality as you would expect from the hotel's consistent pastry kitchen - it's good.
Service has been something of a mixed bag for us at The Pen, but never ever did we have any issue at Chesa and this time was no exception. The intimate and cozy environment means we always get the best service and just the right amount of attention from the staff, and they were always friendly and helpful regardless of the occasions we are here for. It's truly an iconic culinary institution consistently kept up to high standard and never disappoints.
