I'm going to Switzerland (Geneva), also to Paris, and Amsterdam, there's some place where can I find a "Melty Cheese Wheel"?

enter image description here


Looks like that the real name for this dish is "Raclette"

    I have voted to leave this question open as it is about a kind of food, not a specific restaurant. And in my view it is also not too broad as it is not a common food in all areas mentioned. – Willeke Jun 24 '16 at 18:40
  • You want the cheese itself or a place to eat it ? – Max Jun 27 '16 at 15:20

It sounds like you're looking for raclette:


The dish originates from the Swiss canton of Valais, not far from Geneva, which means the dish is quite common there. For the locals it's a winter dish, but there are quite a few (somewhat touristy) restaurants that serve it all year round, like this:


Plenty of raclette/fondue places in Paris as well, just Google for "raclette Paris".

  • "Savoyard" (even if its technically from Valais) is probably a good search term for Paris – CMaster Jun 24 '16 at 21:08
  • I didn't knew that the name for this was "Raclette", very happy to know it know! – Max Ferreira Jun 27 '16 at 15:11
