“Nice place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Excellent food, amazing ambiance. A small hut with traditional music and the decoration is original like a museum. The Rosti is just awesome. Also it have a 2nd floor table like a barn.

“Rustic and atmospheric”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

This is a real gem, full of rustic charm and artefacts. Food is delicious, highly recommend the Raclette with a large beer.
We ate here on chalet staff night off and three lunchtimes on non-skiing days. Alp Hitta is quite a treck out of town but well worth it, there is a good electric bus service during the day but taxi in the evening is quite expensive. (Tip - bus there and walk back as return is down hill)
Meat is cooked over an open fire - delicious.
Prices are very reasonable for Saas Fee and the lady who runs Alp Hitta is a real character. This is a popular place with locals and cross country skiers as the langlauf track starts near the front door.

“Rustic Fondue place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

For a cheese fondue lover this is the place. Not complicated but fast service in a homey Swiss style atmosphere restaurant, specialist in cheese fondues and other dishes including some live music songs from the owner himself. Restaurant is on the edge of the town, which helps with digesting the food during your walk back (taxi available).

“Excellent traditional Swiss food and reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Alphitta is located a few minutes away from the town center. It's a nice walk, but if you spent the day skiing and your legs are tired consider taking a bus or a taxi.

We were welcomed by the owner playing a few songs on his accordion and enjoyed excellent cheese fondue. The prices are comparatively cheap (if there's such a thing at all in Switzerland!) and the place is ideal for groups of up to ten people and families with kids.

“great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

great atmosphere and eccentric decor, very cordial hospitality. the host grills meat at the fireplace, occasionally chopping some wood to feed the flames. when he has a minute, he also plays the accordion, in unobtrusive small doses. nothing nouvelle about this cuisine, just good local food, though with the occasional addition of knorr products (MSG). Good Vallais wines at reasonable prices (for Saas-Fee, that is).
