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.

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.

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.
