Great meal in a fantastic setting

One of the joys of life is having great food surrounded by beautiful scenery. This is exactly what this place offers along with very friendly service and descent prices. Everything we tried was locally sourced and extremely tasty. We come to Villars every year and this is our favourite place.

One has to drive up to Solalex to find this very local restaurant with excellent food since many years. The menu changes quite a few times each week. Note that the restaurant is only open a few days per week. We had excellent rouleau de printemps as starters and a beef carpaccio, salad and perfect roesti as a main dish.... More

While this is slightly off the beaten path, it is worth a detour. It is located in a beautiful valley with a spectacular view of the Mirroir de Argentine in an area perfect for hiking. The family run restaurant provides a charming setting, good service and lots of good food. Try their local specialties including home made tartes. It does... More

The food was perfect, the scenery was breath taking and the service was with a smile. Recommend fully to anyone passing through or any of us that live in the area.

The mountains in Solalex are absolutely spectacular in the evening and the ambiance is highlighted with cows lining the road. This is such a lovely restaurant that has charming country decor, fantastic food, a wonderful local wine list and great service all done with humor and smiles. We enjoyed a lovely Gamay wine from Ollon, excellent foie d'gras and wonderful... More

You couldn't ask for a more dramatic setting nestled in between the mountains in a quiet little valley next to a burbling stream. The staff were friendly and helpful - the owner even came over and translated the menu with the aid of some drawings that he did on our place mats. I had a cold starter of venison and... More

I've been coming to this restaurants for a few years (the last time yesterday) and I have to say that it's always been fantastic. First of all, the whole family that owns and manages the place is extremely nice and pleasant. The menu is quite easy to read: you have appetizers, main courses, and desserts, and for the appetizers and... More

The food, ambience and service amazing. We had the rosti, cheese and salad for an entree and the eggplant and chèvre for an appetizer. The best meal so far in Switzerland.

At the end of a narrow road ( cross country ski track in winter) from Gryon and Villars you enter the nature reserve of Solalex in a flat valley floor with grazing cows and high mountains surrounding. If you want there are two restaurants one more traditional and the other the Miroir D'Argentine named after the mountain ridge behind it... More

This restaurant lived up to the two previous reports on Trip Advisor. The welcome was genuine for all guests and the menu was fully explained with drawings! They take an obvious pride in their family run restaurant. If the french language is a bit daunting for you the proprieters can all speak good english and will fully explain and answer... More
