Raclette Sydney | Urban List Sydney

Winter weather really arrived in Sydney this week, and with it—a new wave of tasty winter treats to indulge in. We’re talking truffle dumplings, mulled wine and truffle cacio e pepe served from a wheel of cheese.

One winter dish on the rise in Sydney this year is raclette—a Swiss slash French specialty that’s basically semi-hard cow’s milk cheese, melted under a grill and scraped onto cured meats, pickled vegetables, slices of fresh baked bread—anything really.

Sound good? We’ve found the ooziest, cheesiest most delicious raclette lined-up for you to try out this winter.

Here are the best places in Sydney to get yourself a dreamy helping of molten raclette.

Bare Grill On Bourke

Surry Hills

Bare Grill on Bourke is known for its year-round dedication to melted cheese. You can add a scraping of raclette to any dish for just $7. Meaning, yes you can order up the cheesiest burger on the list and add even more cheese to it. For a more traditional raclette feast, you can opt for chargrilled asparagus and eggplant to go beneath a helping of gooey cheese, or rosemary and thyme roasted potatoes and baby carrots. 

Bistro Papillon


For selected days during the next few months, our favourite French spot Bistro Papillon is doing us a solid by holding specialty raclette nights. You'll be able to dine in and order up a plate of smoked ham with air-dried beef, pickles and potatoes, slathered in a layer of divine French melted cheese. If you’re ready for Soirée Raclette nights, we’re right behind you.

Loluk Bistro

Surry Hills

Head down to Loluk Bistro every Tuesday and Wednesday night for a bi-weekly dose of stringy raclette goodness. Warm up while downing all-you-can-eat raclette for just $49, featuring potatoes, cornichons and ham and prosciutto covered with gooey cheese. Finish it up with profiteroles with vanilla ice-cream and hot chocolate sauce. Now we’re hooked.

Formaggi Ocello

Surry Hills

We’re about to hit you hard with a raclette night hosted by the cheese gods themselves, Formaggi Ocello. Head in during June for a night of traditional Swiss raclette du Vallis thrown onto potatoes with cornichons. While sipping on a glass of perfectly paired wine, you'll also be able to sample a mixture of other cheeses from the Swiss Alps region.
