“A great find and worth driving to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We spent some time in the mountains near Chamoson and found this little gem by coincident. Ms. Madam (apparently the owner) greeted us promptly and lead us in the cozy dining room. The hole restaurant has a rustic, charming style to it and is very well decorated. Ms. Madam (i feel terrible for not getting her name) made us feel welcome, explained about the winesw in the region and the local food choices. She told us about the Chef, his french heritage and his passion for foiu gras. Since this delicacy was just banned in California we found this to be a nice treat.
The only downside was that my daughter couldn't order the cheese fondue which it is only served in the more casual tavern-room because of the smell.
The wines in Chamoson are OK but a bit light for our taste. We like heavy Italian and California wines and the we found the Wallis region wines much lighter and not as intense.
To summarize: The restaurant's decor is very tasteful and charming. The menu choices are excellent and regional oriented. The food is prepared freshly and is very, very flavorful. The service is OUTSTANDING. The price is about the same as one would expect to pay in the US, but a little high for Europe.
