We were able to walk to this restaurant from the Alpine Village. Good food and fine wine. Delicious steak and the ice cream with an alcohol sauce was to die for.

The menu changes enough to be new and stays the same enough to be familiar. The intimacy of the room and the service of not only the head chef, but all the staff makes the evening amazing.

For $13.95 I expect more than some sliced melon, yogurt and croissants. The croissants were excellent btw. But this place is way overpriced. Worth the drive into town or just buy your own and eat in the cabin.
