This is a must do for having lunch or just a snack with a glass of wine. Amazing place to sit and enjoy life. The staff was so nice you almost wish they could sit down and join you. I could do that everyday!

We love Walliser Stube -- the atmosphere, the menu, the service -- all is so excellent and different. The fondues are wonderful, and prepared by true experts. Highly recommend!

We loved this restaurant so much that we ate there twice. The chatuebriand experience was perfect. Our 10yo did that with my husband and I and our 8yo ordered off the kids menu. The chocolate fondue was the highlight as well as our server. I wish I would of wrote this sooner so I could mention him. All I can... More

The salmon was cooked to perfection and served on a bed of potatoes crushed with Appenzeller cheese: delicious. The schnitzel was of pork and was fried in crisp breadcrumbs, yet it was a little short on taste: central European schnitzels would generally beat it at a fraction of the cost. For dessert we indulged in the chocolate fondue, which was... More

A very pleasant setting and ambience. Waiter was charming even if slightly harassed. Food was good but not spectacular given the expectations. Schnitzel was at best average by European standards. We often buy a prepared schnitzel from our local supermarket that was as good as the offering here in terms of flavour and texture. The sausage appetiser was good, but... More

The place, the ambiance and the service are impecable. We ordered to share one appetizer, one cheese fondue and one chocolate fondue. More than enough. The appetizer was the käsespätzle skillet —in simple words is like a fine macaroni and cheese with meat. Espectacular! Then we ordered the traditional käse fondue with nutmeg, black pepper and kirshwasser which was super... More

We visited this restaurant based in the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise - the fondue was fun but hard to digest. We had the salmon and potato pasta - both were good. Atmosphere and local wines were great- a bit on the expensive side though. A nice night out

This is an expensive and usually fully booked restaurant. But we were able to walk in and sit at a very nice table by a window in the bar and order from the full menu. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

Enjoyed the full fondue experience at the Stube and enjoyed it from start to finish. The starter cheese fondue with bread and veggies was fantastic, followed with the main of beef chateaubriand with amazing side and finished off with the chocolate fondue for dessert. So stuffed at the end but so worth it for a special treat dinner to remember.
