“Best cheesefondue, service excellent and idyllic view of the mountains.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

When in Switzerland, you have to have cheesefondue. This place has the best I have ever had. But of course there is more on the menu and they have a special menu for kids. Service is excellent, friendly staff and all this with the mountains on the background... I am definitely going back!

“Good midday snack, great view as always with the swiss; snail paced service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Amazing local plate of meats and cheeses, well worth a try. Rösti both veggi & meat versions good. Slow to serve, clear & take drinks orders. Staff pleasant & lovely view of the slopes. Contrary to other reviews, what we had certainly was not ready-made food. If service were improved it would rate higher.

“disappointing, ready-made food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

From the outside it looks cute - nicely decorated for Christmas season. The service was very good. The food - massively overpriced for the quality. The salad bar is extremely limited, with store-bought, rather gross dressings. The food was also served with store-bought sauces. All that for prices as if it were a 5 star gourmet restaurant. The view might be nice but what is served is not worth it at all.

“Last night in Saas Fee so memorable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We were greeted and brought to a lovely window table by the owner, third generation. My husband, myself and six year old son were immediately treated like family. From our chateaubriand which normally requires a day in advance before ordering, to the beautiful selection of vegetables and salad, to the complimentary Chet's appetizer and delectably tender cut of beef; our dinner was just perfect! From wine, to sauces and everything in between including presentation, I highly recommend treating yourself here!

“Great food and a wonderful athmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Easily one of the best restaurants in Saas-Fee. Selection of food and wine is excellent.
Very friendly multilingual staff and an amazing view of the mountains directly from your table.
They also have a great south-facing terras overlooking the slopes and mountains. All in all good value for money and a very pleasant place to have a nice lunch or diner.
