The restaurant looks like a quaint unfinished cottage in a lush green open garden. The lighting inside is dim and warm, giving the whole place cosy ambience. The only thing providing light in the restaurant are the basic lamps placed all around. The spare ribs that are served here are succulent and dressed with some delectable honey mustard sauce. The steak sandwich has a choice of chicken or beef and should be tried. It is simply served with lettuce, cheese and French fries on the side.
What we like best about the restaurants in Chennai is their capability to blend seamlessly with the lush outdoors. You are made to feel a part of the nature which elevates your dining experience entirely. Though at Nungambakkam there are various popular restaurants dealing into fabulous cuisines and trendy interiors but still for a relaxing al fresco dining we suggest you to pick ‘Swiss Hutte’. The place is located just opposite Apollo hospital so it will be very easy to find. You will fall in love with the interiors straight away when you take in its bungalow like interiors. The restaurant resembles a beautiful cottage hidden in the hills of Ooty but no it’s in Chennai and that’s the best part. Steal a temporary reprieve in the garden or opt to sit inside under a mat roof. Faux brick walls are complimented by the stylish wicker furniture. Multi-coloured cushions are thrown on the benches to add a splash of colour. Effect is charming, earthy and relaxing.
You may think that such a traditional backdrop will reflect in the food but let us tell you that Swiss Hutte deals into authentic Continental cuisine. Considering the beautiful ambience and delicious food the restaurant is not very expensive. Just under eleven hundred bucks you can enjoy a lavish dinner with a dinner companion.

Commence your evening by ordering yourself a mezze platter which consists hummus & labne with pickle veggies & pita bread, Caesar salad with blue cheese & bacon served with garlic bread and Vietnamese noodle soup.
