Well like I said- decent food. Fondue was too salty for my taste. May be a little less salty would have made the whole experience much better. We had made booking to eat in the gondola but were not seated there, which was a bummer...More

We visited Walliser in December 2017. Nice restaurant and friendly staff. We ordered the meat and cheese fondues, which were excellent. Quite and expensive restaurant but with it for the experience.

To us, "Swiss Alpine cuisine" means bringing a portion of the "Swiss mountains" to you at lunchtime or in the evening. The rustic cellar vault brings to mind a typical wine cellar in the vineyards of the Valais. We put the aroma of the Swiss Alps on your plates. The original cheese fondue comes to you in eight different variations, as dictated by Valais tastes. And when your meat is brought to you on a hot stone, you know it will be cooked exactly as you want it. Of course, our menu also includes the classics; "Bauernbratwurst" sausage with onion sauce, veal Cordon Bleu with herbed French fries, and – naturally – Zurich "Geschnetzeltes" (stir-fried veal) served with rosti. In summer, we also serve all these delights on our delightful terrace beside the pedestrian zone. Have we whetted your appetite? We look forward to seeing you!
