Dear MySwiss Alps members,

I have read about a sharing charge for meals. How does this work?

My husband and 9 year old child are high carb eaters, and I'm on a low carb diet.

Hi Ketoeato,

I am not exactly sure what you mean by sharing charge. I think most restaurants will allow you to share meals. Most will also offer children's menu. So best t0 ask at each restaurants before making your order. Perhaps there are fellow travellers here with similar experience who can shed some light. Also, this link might give you some useful tips; www.myswissalps.com/aboutswitzerland/culturehistory/food

Regards,

Anna

Likewise, I don't know what 'sharing charge' means.

Some starter and snack meals in Switzerland are sharing plates where you pay one price and get a plate full of meats, cheese etc to share.

For example in Zermatt the 'Walliserteller' (Valais platter) is popular - it would have cold meats, salami, cheese, gherkins, pickled onion etc and you can choose the bits you like.

Ketoeato - Do you mean ordering one main course and asking for extra plates so others may share it? My wife and I did that once at a fondue restaurant and I don't remember being charged for the 2nd plate. Other places might. We found the antipasto/charcuterie type of menu items were served with plates & utensils for both of us.
