Heritage on Rupert Street is in good company. Surrounded by a number of other lauded restaurants (Xu, The Palomar) it’s absolutely trying its best. Swiss fondue and steaks are their game. In theory you could drop a lot of cash here but we stuck with small plates and fondue which kept the bill at bay.
The space is dark and full of Keith Haring prints which is sort of jarring given the restaurants theme but what was I expecting cuckoo clocks? and the music was playing very softly when we dined. We brought Max with us and our own portable high chair because they don’t have any. There was only one other table for lunch and they were seated directly next to us and stared every time Max spoke above a whisper or dropped a toy. There’s some stairs to get into the restaurant but there’s also one of those little accessibility lifts if you can’t lift the buggy. It was not in any way designed with kids in mind but it’s not impossible.
If you are a slut for cheese (I am) then Heritage is place for you. They have a number of excellent dishes with raclette, two big wodges of it sit at the back of the restaurant wait being heated to be scraped onto your plate, as well as a variety of savoury fondues. The dessert menu which is short is also excellent the kirschtorte is a must but be warned I got cherry sauce ALL OVER ME on trying to eat it.
What’s good? The raclette dishes and the rostis are especially nice, as well as the potato hay, see also the dessert menu but beware the cherry sauce.
Kid friendly? They seemed baffled we were there but we’re friendly. There’s ample space but no real facilities unless you bring your own.
