We enjoyed the traditional cheese fondue as our starter and the trout entree. Both were delicious! The Chocolate dessert fondue was terrible! The first time it came out cold with a layer of oil on top. They reheated it but it was still awful and tasted like oil. Avoid the chocolate fondue and you should have a better dining experience...

I had an appetizer of a selection of spiced meats, pickles, onions, cheese and pate which was very good. My entree was the pork tenderloin which was excellent.

This is the first time that my family enjoyed fondue. AMAZING food and service. Loved the beef main course which was not fondue. The best beef we have ever eaten. We ate every night at the Fairmont (5 nights), and this was our favorite.

Walliser Stube has lost its identity. The restaurant had served entree fondues but now serves only plated entrees. They serve cheese and chocolate fondues but the main is now normal beef chicken or fish. The wine prices are 3x what you pay in a store - or more. Some of the wines are 19.00 in a store and 95.00 in... More

We started with the regular cheese fondue and I could have eaten that only. We had a large section of foods to use in addition to the traditional bread. Next we had chateaubriand which was perfectly cooked. Then Toblerone and dark chocolate fondue for dessert. Doesn't get much better than that!

This is not a budget restaurant. The prices are high, but the service is incredible. I have to say, I had better fondue at way less expensive restaurants. The table next to ours was very close so it made our dinner .. not that romantic like I planned.

The cheese fondue is decadent, over the top fabulous. Food was exceptional. Service was terrible, so bad in fact the Manager offered us free desert and a glass of wine as an apology, which we accepted and appreciated. If they can get their service fixed this would be an exceptional restaurant.
