There’s not a huge choice on the mountain, unless you drop back into the village for lunch. The Metro-Alpin at Mittelallalin contains Three-Sixty, the world’s highest revolving restaurant. It has great views, average food, and a background of soul, jazz and electro music. Berghaus Plattjen, (+41 79 566 6926), over on the separate Plattjen sector to the east of town, serves fine Rosti. Try also Egginer Morenia, (+41 27 957 1881), Laengfluh, (+41 27 957 2132), and the Gletschergrotte, (+41 27 957 2160). The kitchen of Bergrestaurant Spielboden (+41 27 957 22 12) is now headed by the team from Fletschhorn Waldhotel, with a new look, and serving fresh international cuisine, homemade bread and pastries, and an extensive wine list. Vernissage Berghaus Plattjen (owned by the Ferienart) is Saas Fee’s oldest mountain eatery and was revamped a few years ago. Today it has a lovely rustic interior, serves hearty mountain food and offers fabulous views from its terrace. It also has double rooms and dormitories for those who like the idea of spending the night up the mountain.

An interesting restaurant scene in town

Anybody who’s enjoyed the lovely Vernissage bar and art gallery in Zermatt will be pleased to know that its designer, Heinz Julen, has a namesake in Saas Fee – Vernissage (+41 27 958 1904), a lounge and restaurant within the large five-star Ferienart Resort and Spa. The hotel contains several other restaurants, including the excellent Cheminee (+41 27 957 2748), and Caesar Ritz (+41 27 958 1900). Restaurant La Gorge has a great sun terrace and serves delicious Rosti. We also think the Michelin-rated Fletschhorn Waldhotel is great, but it’s a long walk – stuck out in the woods to the north of town. For something special, have dinner – or lunch – at Waldhus Bodmen, a restaurant tucked away in the woods with a menagerie of pigs, rabbits, hens, and goats, to watch (through a glass wall) as you eat. Boccalino (+41 27 957 1731) and Don Ciccio (+41 27 957 4020) are good pizzerias.

  • Working up from where the Noddy Train stops next to the river is the Zur Muhle and it not only has great Apres Ski outside but great food inside. Although if you sit and eat outside it will be on a cosy sheepskin! The Rostis are awesome and the reindeer is amazing.
    Ski Hutte further up the street sells great ribs and has a sunny terrace.
    Rasto is a great Pizzeria and sells very nice Pasta.
    The Steak House opposite the UBS bank was new last year and sells amazing beef and lamb steak which you cook on your own hot stone – and the fries that go with it……..MMMMM.
    The Chami Stube has amongst other things, pizza with melted cheese envelopes on the corners.
    Don Ciccio is a superb Italian near the UBS Bank also.
