Best approached by the lovely walk down from Les Chaud above Gryon, this refuge sits at the edge of the small hamlet of Taveyanne, the sole purpose of which, apparently, is to tend to the numerous cows that wonder amongst this small collection of classic-built...More

Superb refuge close to Villars sur Ollon. Views are gorgeous in the summer you can eat on the terrasse. The raclette at night is a must with a nice fendant. We will go back

This place never fails. The food, the service and of course the wonderful views. If you are not a walker then you can drive up to the restaurant. Plenty of parking.

Beautiful location, robust Alpine food - but erratically alternating between charming and unaccountably and positively charmless service. Unfortunately, the charmless won. The abiding impression was that they were doing us a favour by permitting us to eat there. They were very busy but that is...More

Lovely view surrounded by swiss cattle. Very quaint and cosy chalet/cabin restaurant. Serves great hot chocolate and fresh valais apricot juice. Nice warm log fire. A great place to stop on a hike through gryon.
