Escape to a little bit of Switzerland at The Barnyard Shopping Village on Highway 1 in Carmel. The cozy interior of Lugano Swiss Bistro, with its wood paneled walls adorned with Swiss decorations, whimsical mural and checkered tablecloths, transports the diner into a chalet high in the alps. Chef Andre Lengacher's culinary magic completes the picture with the unique and robust flavors of his native country. Outdoors, the illusion continues with an Alpine-style heated patio where well-behaved canines are welcome. Fondue is Switzerland's most famous contribution to world cuisine, and several varieties of the velvety, decadent cheese delight are prominently features on the menu. But fondue is more than cheese. Lugano also offers healthier versions including chicken, seafood, beef and lamb that will appeal to those who wish to eat lighter. And the chocolate fondue is a must! Lugano Swiss Bistro serves lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday from 11:30 am to 9:00 pm. Open Mondays until Labor Day. Authentic Swiss cuisine is only a yodel away at Lugano Swiss Bistro. In addition to fondue, there's authentic Schnitzel, lightly breaded and pan fried with lemon, capers and anchovy; Roast Rack of Lamb; and for the lighter appetite, Pan Fried Lake Trout and Seafood Risotto. An international wind list makes pairing the perfect wine easy. Join us at LUGANO, swiss bistro! your Hosts, Andre and Nargis Lengacher
