“cozy spot for fondue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Fondue was excellent, and other dishes we tried (including raclette and a rack of lamb) were very good too. Service was a little slow, but still on the acceptable side of the things. Overall a cozy place with great atmosphere.

“Traditional restaurant for raclette and fondue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Certainly during holiday periods reservation is needed. What we liked was the three course raclette menu. What we didn't like was the two shift method. At 21.30 hrs we had to leave. Overall a good place for raclette and fondu, good atmosphere!

“New found charm in Verbier, extraordinary food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

Upon arrival at La Channe we were greeted very warmly by the owners and staff, as rather old friends than newcomers to their charming restaurant. The ladies who run the restaurant are the perfect hostesses, nothing was too much trouble and there choices of wines complimented the gorgeous dishes on offer. The menu ranges from traditional Swiss raclette and fondue to modern choices such as ravioli with langoustine (simply divine) and steaks that are cooked to perfection and make your mouth water with delight!

The ambience cannot be faulted, careful choices of Swiss art, rustic sculptures and lighting as well as many of the families personal trinkets make for the perfect atmosphere.

After dinner we were led to the gorgeous terrace where we took coffee and digestifs. The terrace is also perfect for pre-drinks, apero and dining.

La Channe is my number 1 restaurant to visit whilst in Verbier.
