In the week of Feb 2nd 2013, we left our chalet in Saas-Fee and walked into the Fletschhorn restaurant. The intention was to introduce ourselves with the fine Wallis wines, they have in there cellar.
The Swiss wines are nice and fine, the champagne card is impressive, but the food is fairly average for French-Belgian standards. Actually one would start wondering why swiss restaurants have it easy obtaining a Michelin star or high Gault-Millau points. The one Michelin star is just about fair, but the 18 Gault-Millau is seriously exaggerated. I was under the impression Gault-Millau was there to increase the quality of fine food, here it's more about justifying the price, regardless what is served on the table. If I compare to other Gault-Millau restaurants, I can only justify 12-13 points to Fletschhorn. Michelin is probably giving an extra for the location and interior.
