Description: La Ferme is as much a part of Saas-Fee as the Leaning Tower is part of Pisa. Inside, it is decorated in traditional style, typical of the region, and you'll find a warm, cosy atmosphere where every detail has been thought about. Whether you come for coffee and a nice chat, an aperitif with friends or an elegant dinner, the young team at "La Ferme" will tempt you with simple but traditional fare or something truly special and delicious. Typical specialities of the Valais region Meat specialities - some old favourites and some unusual novelties Fondue Chinoise with homemade sauces - eat as much as you like On our sunshine terrace with its wonderful views of the glacier and the comings and goings on the village promenade, we serve a freshly prepared 3-course lunch every day or an a la carte menu to cater for larger or smaller appetites.

I had thought this would be a great little place from pictures and prior reviews, but we were greatly disappointed both with service, which seemed discombobulated at best, and the rather boring dinners, schitzels and fries, nothing to get excited about. The salads were ok, but then again it's hard to ruin a swiss salad. Would not recommend if you can get in somewhere else.

I regularly eat out in Switzerland. The Swiss are excellent at being restauranters and their food is exceptionally good. However, La Ferme in Saas Fee has let Switzerland down. The staff serving us were unfriendly, inattentive and unbelievably slow. The food, when it eventually arrived was ok but not exceptional.We had to ask over and over for things which were forgotten. It took us an hour to get to the main course. Wine took twenty minutes to arrive. Luckily my guests had a sense of humour but by the end of the evening we were desperate to leave but we were told we couldn't pay the bill because our waiter was smoking ... can you believe it!!! If there had been a manager available we would have complained as the service was appalling. It was a total waste of money. We even shouted good bye when we left and no body replied although the place was nearly empty and a grump of a teenage waitress was in the room. Don't go there!

This is a lovely restaurant setting, next to the Sunstar Beau Site hotel but the food, service and ambience just don't work together for the high prices. It gets very busy because it is on the front street but unless things improve there is better food to be found at a lower price elsewhere, especially at Del Ponte, where the atmosphere is totally different.

One of us ordered the rosti which was actually good and a large dish. The other ordered the porc escalope which was horrrendous...two tiny pieces of re-heated porc, 5 small vegetables, and they forgot the potatoes and never brought them. All for 29 CHF which is a complete rip-off. I would not recommend this restaurant unless you like to pay a lot of low quality food.

Charming and rustic feel to this local restaurant that serves a good range of local Swiss and international food. Friendly welcome and good service
