We've been here on all 3 of our visits to Saas-Fee, this year we went twice during our 5-day stay. The cheese fondue here is great, best had in Saas-Fee. The atmosphere can't be beat, it is cozy, traditional Swiss-Alp decorations & feel. We had friendly service each time. Went back for Valentine's and was memorable date night. Discovered more... More

It could be a full 4* rate because we had a delicious beef shoulder with mashed potatoes and the gorgonzola and rocket rosti was pretty good although a bit salty but you can't pay chf 5.60 for two glasses of water!!! They don't bring you a bottle or a pitcher for 2 people and you only get single glasses at... More

We have been coming to Saas Fee for 12 years for ski holidays. This restaurant is on our regular must visit while here itinerary. Fresh salads, well presented fondues, with excellent local wines make it a lovely evening out. We were here again last night and it was great as always. Good quality without pretension. We had 4 salads all... More

We were hunting for a good traditional Swiss restaurant and found this place here on Trip Advisor. We were pleased to find it was only a short walk from our hotel The Dom. The name Arvu Stube is not on the building. You will see a little arch saying Swiss Alpine Style for the entrance to the stairs up to... More

The food was typically Swiss, the service was great and friendly although a bit slow and the atmosphere was really charming. Beware of the strong melted cheese smell, better put your coats in the wardrobe!

We liked the genuine feel to the restaurant and the food was OK, but since it was "dinner time" and they all of a sudden filled up, they seemed very overwhelmed as if this had never happened before, so service suffered for a while. All in all not bad, but don't be too hungry or in a hurry when you... More

Arvu Stuba has great Swiss food, and lots of it! Fondue, Wallis teller, sausages, meat, etc. Everyone in our group of six something different to eat and the entire table was happy! A definite go-to restaurant when staying in Saas-Fee.

What a lovely restaurant! Went after a long day on the slopes. Totally charmed by the cozy atmosphere, attentive service, and delicious fondue. We were advised by the young guy at the hotel that this is the best cheese fondue in Saas-Fee. Then, trying to find the restaurant, these sentiments were repeated exactly by a woman who directed us to... More

Its a good sign when every table is full even in off season! Its a bit difficult to find - down an alleyway off the main thoroughfare. Also known by the rather naff name of "Swiss Alp Style" this is pretty genuine Swiss chalet style food in the middle of Saas Fee. The restaurant is better than that. Thankfully we... More
