“Earache”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

The food here is fine, but the waitresses are complete stress-heads. What should be a pleasant lunch in the sunshine instead has the two waitresses shouting and bawling in your ear and rushing about, though the waiters were fine. This happened two lunchtimes running, go to the Relais across the road, and eat in peace.

“great retaurant for a treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

beautiful old restaurant nestled by the Medran gondola, with small menu full of delicious mouth-watering dishes - excellent service; great range of steaks, including their speciality, teaks in chunks flambeed and served with drunken rice and assorted dips; venison- superb salads, vegetables included in price. Tap water (which the waiter called 'l'eau de la montagne') available and no pressure to order expensive drink. Not a cheap outing - nothing i in Switzerland - £50+ per head - but memorable and outstanding for quality of food and ambience.

“Always a good experience, potentially overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

Certainly if you have never been, it is a bit of a must in Verbier dining as Chez Dany or Namaste are for lunching. Good meat served flaming with decent sauces. As other reviewers mentioned, they know they have a winning ticket, and do tend to rush the clients to free up tables. Quite pricey for what you actually get but a good place for a group dinner as "social eating" - you sort of feel that you are add ing some value to the cooking!

“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

After ½ a day of great skiing we ate a great lunch. Ate one of the best lasagnes we ever had, very good service, and nice atmosphere. Do bad it was our last day in Verbier, but we will be back for dinner and lunch next time!

“Great Steak, Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

I made my regular annual trip to Au Vieux in Verbier.

We had the house speciality which is a "gallows" that has steak on it. You dip these in the variety of superb sauces provided. The quality and service is superb and although the Swiss Franc makes any meal expensive, there is value to be had especially if you stick to regional wine.
