The food in this restaurant is very good and the waiters are very friendly. There is an outdoor terrace where you can eat when it's sunny that is very pleasant. We love this restaurant.

Went there for lunch with my gf. We went inside as it was windy. Staff very polite and efficient. They have a nice choice of salads or meat on the menu. Good choice of steak tartar. We took regular steak tartar. Very nice presentation. Good place to eat. Prices were fair. We ll come back.

Came here in a group of 15 for my girlfriend's birthday and would thoroughly recommend it. Looking round the table the tartares looked fantastic and although there were a few complaints about the steaks everyone was pretty damn happy! Staff were very attentive and friendly and the wine list was also excellent. Couldn't figure out what Bagdad or Zanzibar had... More

We tried to go to Ferme Aigle but it was closed for the holidays, so we went in search of a place for lunch. This cafe was perfect for us--lively and full of locals (we were the only people speaking English when we were there). The burger was good, and my husband's fish was delicate and beautifully presented.

What an awesome culinary surprise in the middle of Sion's old town. While the front is not as inviting as other eateries in the area, do step in, as the food is totally worth it. Very well presented, whether on slates, rectangular plates, the dishes are creative, tasty and very well balanced. I had a great foie gras followed by... More

Nothing extravagant, but a great trendy place with a good atmosphere. The food is very nice and the quality shouldn't disappoint anyone

Excellent meal in pleasant surroundings with really friendly service. Couldn't fault the food and the prices were good value (by Swiss standards). Our only quibble was the after dinner cappuccino, which had been asked for strong and seemed to have hardly any coffee in it. This didn't spoil a very pleasant evening meal.
