They have a great choice of cheese fondues. They have special fondue pans so you can order mixed choices.

We arrived a little early for our 8.30pm reservation and were unceremoniously told to wait outside (in the freezing cold!) or in the (very smokey) bar, without even being asked for the name of the reservation. We returned at the appropriate time only to be told to go upstairs, where there seemed to be a number of empty tables. We... More

Good day Maliha Many thanks for your evaluation. We are very sorry for the circumstances at your arrival. In the high season and on the weekends we always have two services in the restaurant (upstairs and downstairs), the first at 6.00 until 8.15 pm and the second from 8.30 pm. When the guests from the first service leave at 8.15... More

What is a visit to Wallis without enjoying some Raclette! Our large group (6 adults 7 kids) were warmly accommodated by the friendly staff at Restaurant Vieux Chalet. The service was friendly and the food outstanding! next time we are in Saas Fee we will visit again.

We ordered four different types of fondue. Beer, chilli, cheese, and Gorgonzola cheese. All we're average- have had better. The service was slow. There are better fondue places in Saas fee.

I have been coming here for over 20 years and have always found a good fondue. I had never been here, and I have to say, this is the best, the very best fondue I have ever had.

They're serving various kinds of cheese fondue and similar Swiss food at this restaurant which all look good. We've had the fondue 1-2 times and we're quite pleased.

Whenever we're in Saas-Fee, we have at least once roesti in this place. Always tasty and quite filling. "Mountain-style" decoration, everything in wood, low ceilings, pleasant and expeditious service. As vegetarians, this is our "fall-back" option when we don't find another restaurant with acceptable vegetarian fare.
