High price, but equally high quality

We were turned down from entering the tacky Mont Fort pub with our dog, and were warmly welcomed in this elegant restaurant. We loved everything - from starter to main course and the 'by glass wine' which was just splendid. The service was very friendly and helpful - so for us it will apply that... read more

It took me quite some time to discover Au Vieux Verbier. The building or the sign had me assume that it was somewhat dusty. I was seriously wrong. With great service and a menu adjusted by the season (Asparagus in April, Hunt menu in September/October etc) Au Vieux Verbier is among the best Verbier restaurants in the area between mid-tier...

I went to Vieux Verbier with a large group of friends for dinner. The place was very nice inside, had a very typical Mountain village feel to it yet it felt quite classy. We all ordered the speciality, "La Potence," a meat dish served in a very particular way - pieces of different meat are hung to a cone like... More

Good food at fair prices. Good service. Located "at" the Verbier lift, and down from the W. Smart to make reservations.

Very good meat, attentive service. Had excellent venison. Would recommend. Didn't try the infamous potency even if every other table seemed to be.

We went for dinner last night and received a very friendly welcome from the staff. The signature dish is La Potence ( the gallows) and it is not to be missed. Cubes of beef are sautéed and hung on an iron contraption which keeps the beef hot until you pull a piece off. It is served with sald, chips and... More
