Had a great fondue here and when we arrived it was very warm and welcoming. Unfortunately half way through our meal, ten/twelve locals came in in a rather loud and drunken spirit. i don't mind this - after all it is a ski town and I have enjoyed myself just as much in the past! However - the mood of... More

The meat fondue was the best I had tested, lovely traditional restaurant. Great attentive staff. Huge selection of dips for the fondue and fresh salad. Well priced wine. Was far too stuffed to even think about dessert. Wonderful evening, great atmosphere.

We had a fantastic meal of swiss/alpine food here over a business meal. I would have to say that the smell of the fondue was a bit overpowering to the lay person, but it was fantastic and well recommended by the server. Great location right in the centre of town as well.

I have nothing bad to say about this place. Staff is super friendly, the atmosphere is nice and cozy and food is excellent. On our first visit we arrived without reservation, and were told the restaurant is fully booked, but there is a chance that one reservation will be a no-show, so we could wait 20 minutes at the bar...

This restaurant was not our first option but finally the surprise from the chef who puts his heart and soul on cooking those excellent sardinian artichokes and the smiling waiter Aurelien was yhe highlight of our first day on Verbier. This restaurant has a huge reputation for doing the best raclette in town along with lots of delicious local dishes.... More

Perfect food and cosy festive interior - to me it's one of the best places in Verbier to have a dinner. All the main courses we took were delicious and the selection of wines was good as well. Our friends also enjoyed their fondue very much.
