“Our Favourite Restaurant In Saas-Fee, Great Cheese Fondue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

We've been here on all 3 of our visits to Saas-Fee, this year we went twice during our 5-day stay. The cheese fondue here is great, best had in Saas-Fee. The atmosphere can't be beat, it is cozy, traditional Swiss-Alp decorations & feel. We had friendly service each time. Went back for Valentine's and was memorable date night. Discovered more local bar upstairs this time that we really like, good atmosphere, bit more modern feel, lots of locals, nice (but cold) mini patio with a table with sheepskins outside.

“You pay water as gold”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

It could be a full 4* rate because we had a delicious beef shoulder with mashed potatoes and the gorgonzola and rocket rosti was pretty good although a bit salty but you can't pay chf 5.60 for two glasses of water!!! They don't bring you a bottle or a pitcher for 2 people and you only get single glasses at this crazy price. Sorry but I think I've never paid water so much all over the world.

“Great fondue in charming atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

We have been coming to Saas Fee for 12 years for ski holidays. This restaurant is on our regular must visit while here itinerary. Fresh salads, well presented fondues, with excellent local wines make it a lovely evening out. We were here again last night and it was great as always. Good quality without pretension.

We had 4 salads all very fresh, and a moite-moite fondue and a walliser fondue. Both were perfect served with bread and small potatoes to swirl in cheese. The Hiede white wine was chilled just right.

The staff is friendly and helpful. Able to help in English as well! Although at the time of our visit most of the dinner guests were Swiss. A very good sign!!!

“Charming cozy restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

We were hunting for a good traditional Swiss restaurant and found this place here on Trip Advisor. We were pleased to find it was only a short walk from our hotel The Dom. The name Arvu Stube is not on the building. You will see a little arch saying Swiss Alpine Style for the entrance to the stairs up to the restaurant. We were treated by a nice waiter that placed us at a cozy corner booth. He was kind suggesting a couple local dishes and drinks that paired well with our two fondue choices. Based on his suggestion we tried their local dry white wine called Hieda. It is similar to a Chardonnay but complimented the cheese fondue perfectly! The best part of the night was the great prices for the quality of food. Saas-Fee is expensive but felt Arvu Stube was a budget friendly delicious meal!

“A true Swiss food experience in a charming atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food was typically Swiss, the service was great and friendly although a bit slow and the atmosphere was really charming. Beware of the strong melted cheese smell, better put your coats in the wardrobe!
