“All-round Fondue Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Although this seems to be a Saas-Fee staple we missed it on our 1st trip but went on both our 2nd & 3rd trips. Always busy so make reservation. Very focused on fondue but other traditional dishes are available. First time had cheese fondue and was very good, but not as good as Arvu Stube. The meat fondue is more impressive; had great meat fondue, good choice of sauces, delicious fries, couldn't finish our meal. Very content and will definitely return. Good for families or couples.

“3 FONDEU”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Reasonable restaurant and for Swiss standards affordable and service is ok. We took the 3 Fondue and you can choose 3 types of fondue for 2. The local one with tomato is excellent and the one with truffle is top. They have a good wine list with amazingly good affordable local Wallis wines. If you want to have a nice local experience a good recommendation.

“Slow service, good Chinoise (meat) fondue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

We arrived early and were told to wait in the adjacent fumoir. People arriving after us were served faster (even though we had booked). Food redeemed ineffectual service. Would be higher rated if better staffed.

“Three way fondue...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

We were recommended a visit here by the Saas Fee tourist office to try the three in one fondue. The novelty didn't disappoint although the service and atmosphere were a little lacking.

“Straightforward and offers what one expects”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Not the most remarkable place. Everything about it ok, food, service and pricing. Don't sit near the door though as despite the closed porch, a wind blows though with every entrance and exit. Sit in the lower part to the right of the entrance.
