Best meal during our stay and most friendly service

We had a wonderful meal in the Essstube. The food was wonderful including the children's portions which were just great for our 12 year old boy. The services was soooo friendly. The ladies were wonderfully helpful and smiling. Our only regret was that we couldn't get a reservation for the following... read more

This is by far the best restaurant in Saas-fee my husband and I enjoyed yummy fondue and delicious dishes and if we were to come back to Saas we would definitely come back here!

Drop by here now so hungry after having a late lunch with involved pizza. The service was perfect and the reason for four stars and not five is that we only had fondue, which was amazing but we didn't try the entire menu.

We really enjoyed our meal at Esstube. Which was just as well, since getting a booking was rather difficult, though the chef/owner, Martin, did everything possible to fit us in. Next time we'll know to book before travelling. The surroundings were unique, but convivial, with unusual art on display. The food was regional and original, but best of all, very... More

The food is great here. We had the Steak Rossini, which was amazing. Service is a bit on the slow side which didn't really bother us too much as we weren't in a rush, but I can see how it could impact the experience. The chef /owner is really friendly and comes at the end of the evening to chat... More

We enjoyed this restaurant which is off the main village street, with an original decor. Classical menu with a hint of fantasy, thumbs up to the chef for the presentation of the vegetables and especially their seasoning/cooking...very often they are tasteless but here they were so delicious and appetizing , even my children ate them!

The meal was presented in a very attractive manner, and tasted delicious. I had the pork steak, while my wife tried the Rösti. Attentive personnel and super service

We highly recommend this restaurant! The atmosphere is very nice, the service friendly and the food amazing! We came to eat both evening of the week end we spent in Saas-fee because we liked it so much. Even the salad, thanks to an excellent dressing is very good. We had the tomato soup, an amazing fondue (with delicious fresh bread),... More

Our hotel recommended this place (we didn't realise until later that one is basically owned by the other!) The first thing that struck Jack was the decor. It's not exactly traditional Alpine chic, but that's the point of Essstube - it's quite trendy and avant garde for Saas-Fee - (we're talking espresso cups and Christmas tree decorations hanging from the...

Ate here last week. Restaurant was busy with a waiting time and now can understand why given that we really enjoyed the wine and food. The food is a notch above other restaurants in saas fee though the interiors and location are nothing special. Would visit again without hesitation.
