Decided to experience our first 'fondue' at Pollux and we were not disappointed. The staff were welcoming, pleasant and happy to explain various aspects of the menu to us. The food was exception and plentiful, difficult to finish in fact because the portions were so generous. Great value for money, we would happily recommend Pollux to other visitors.

Friendly efficient service by waitress who seems to speak every language. Choice of breads, heaps of pickles for free and very generous portions of excellent home dried meat and fondue.

A cosy bar with lots of comfortable seating and a roaring fire. Table service is very attentive and the 'nibbles' which accompany drinks are a nice touch.

Went twice for early evening drinks and very much enjoyed the cosy, warm ambience. Service getting drinks at our table was very efficient but we did end up having to go to the bar to pay. They did seem a little understaffed for the number of guests but, having said that, it's easy to see why people flock here after... More

Visited the Chami bar in the Hotel Pollux several times in January 2014. It was always a popular venue especially on a Friday night. Nice open fire and very friendly bar staff.

We went just for a drink. Very very slow service and even slower to pay. While we were there two large Japanese tour groups came in to eat so this is clearly who they are catering to. Best avoided unless you are I'm said tour groups.

The owner greeted us and was very helpful in every way especially with food and directions. We tried the Raclette(a Swiss Specialty) was... More

For a non-climber it was a challenge getting to the top and down again even with a guide. Still got the bruises from the abseling attempt.
