We ordered a fondue and the quality and quantity was excellent. The fondue came so fast and the waiters were kind. I would recommend to reserve because it is small and always full.

It is actually somewhat rare to find fondue and raclette in Graubunden. They originate form the French speaking part of Switzerland. So, finding it at restaurant Vorab, is kind of like finding a Philly cheese steak in Houston. That said, they know their market (tourists, mostly German) come in by the bus load. Still, I find it to be romantic,... More

We're staying locally and my husband fancied a steak. So we came here. There is choice of restaurants, Italian or the steakhouse. The service was excellent, they were attentive without being intrusive. I don't really like alcohol, and it was refreshing to have a non alcoholic Hugo offered instead of the usual coke etc. The food was also excellent, in... More

Good food with regional specialties on the menu and good service. We had the Swiss fondue, it's a pretty big pot and if you ask for more they will bring more! We were lucky to get an English speaking server that gladly explained everything and even recommended more restaurants and local dishes we should try.

I was wary of going in to the Vorab for a traditional Swiss fondue and raclette because of the inconsistent reviews here on TA. But we were not disappointed.. the service was excellent, the raclette was prepared right next to the dining room and the portions were good size. The fondue was a little creamier than I prefer, but was... More

Self-service restaurant, recently nicely refurbished. We usually do not like these kind of restaurant, because they are too large for us. But this is a nice one with good fresh food. We had excellent pasta of the day freshly prepared. Salad was really fresh with nice dressing. If weather permits you can sit outside with great views. So if you... More

The Hotel Vorab actually has three restaurants, one of which is a Fondue lounge - not large, maybe around 10 tables and very cozy. As well as the traditional fondue (both cheese and meat), the menu featured some dondue recipes with a twist - including a pesto fondue and one featuring gorgonzola. We chose their tomato fondue, which was actually... More

We went to the Vorab Hotel in Flims for Fondue. We have been to the restaurant before and really like the traditional Swiss wooden theme with the animals from the mountain on the wall. We started with a salad before the cheese-fest. We had the farmers fondue (with bacon and cheese) and it was great, in fact we couldn't finish... More

This was supposed to be the best fondue in Flims, but we thought it was quite poor overall. The raclette was pre-prepared and brought in a plate to the table instead of letting you cook it yourself. Dessert was forgettable.

We went for fondue and it was not great. tasted very strongly of alcohol - even the fondue served to the children. When we got the bill they had charged 5CHF per jug of tap water. would not recommend. When i asked the lady in charge she justified it by saying they had to pay for water from the tap!... More
