Traditional Swiss

Traditional style a short walk out of the village. A lovely setting in the woods, with great views down the valley. Good range of options on the menu, and the food was excellent. Playpark for the children and various animals to see as well.

This is a lovely restaurant destination in a delightful wooded location. We found it almost by accident on a cold and snowy walk and returned the following day. A super traditional menu full of really good food, delivered with a smile. We loved the presence of chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs. We need to return to Saas-Fee in the summer... More

Bodmen is a "classical" swiss mountain restaurant serving mountain classics, in a quaint environment. It is accessed by a short walk (20 minutes or so) from the village of Saas-Fee along a well lit path with beautiful views over the Saas valley. Therefore unlike many of the other mountain (as opposed to village) restaurants, this one is accessible easily to... More

We discovered the Waldhüs Bodmen while on a winter hike on a snowy Saturday afternoon. Switzerland abounds with charming rustic mountain restaurants, but we agreed that this was the best of its kind that we have encountered in five years in the country. It offered a large menu of Swiss favorites, with emphasis on meat and cheese dishes. Our Walliser... More

Definitely worth the walk (at least an hour back and forth from the village, or take a taxi for CHF 25.- one way), in winter at night it's like a fairy tale to arrive in this rustic yet comfortable chalet... We celebrated a birthday, and loved the cosy atmosphere and good classical food (mostly meat...). Hearty soups served in a... More

Recommend a trip to the Waldhus Bodmen, one of our favourites in Saas Fee. Beautiful terrace at lunchtime, cosy interior at night. V geared up for children with playroom and plenty of animals to look at and play with. Good kids menu. Older children like the Steinplatte, a hot stone on which you cook your meat. Any of the 'Geschnetzeltes'... More

We ate here on two occasions on our recent holiday to Saas Fee. The Rosti was very tasty and we were able to share a portion between us [it was lunchtime]. We were also tempted by the ice cream concoctions - delicious! The view from the terrace on a clear day is beautiful and they are very happy to serve... More

An amazing terrace restaurant in sass fee. Good views and comfortable outdoor seating. The inside seating was also cosy and traditional. The restaurant is an easy and enjoyable 15 minutes walk from the tourist office. A varied menu with pricing similar to other good restaurants in sass fee. It is a kind of an outdoors restaurant and would add to... More

Im probably a little biased as I have lived in this resort for 3 ski seasons and visited many times during the summer. But I just love Bodmin, the walk there is beautiful and the views surrounding the restaurant are breathtaking. Ive never experienced bad food, (the rosti is to die for!) and have always found the service to be... More
