“Great place up in the mountain!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This restaurant is accessible by car should you want to go there for dinner. On the way back, to my understanding, it is also possible to slide down the slope in Winter!
We booked a table for the second service, at 21:00 and were pleased to find reserved parking places in front of the restaurant's entrance (not many though!). We then were nicely welcome in this tiny and cute restaurant and brought to our table. The signature dishes are meat on hot stones. So we went for this (with two sorts of beef) after a good first course. Wines were local, but good. And the ambiance was great (a bunch of people eating good food far up in the mountain in a nice tiny place!). Decent pricing (less than CHF 100 per person for a three courses meal with good beef and a 3 bottles of wine). Good service. A great place to have dinner in Verbier!

“Always a winner”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I am lucky enough to have skiied in Verbier for 5 years. Each visit has a Carrfour day in it when we lunch late and lunch well .

The Rosti Bacombe is simple and to die for. Glorified egg and chips if you like, but still extreemly tasty. We also had a local meat starter and those who didnt rosti eat really well with the Dish of the day.

We eat there twice, on the first occasion on a sunny day outside. Simply nothing better.

“Not for children”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This restaurant is not a child friendly place. They do not accept pushchairs into the restaurant nor offer a childchair. Or they did offer one to put on a chair. But no extra chair. So either is you sitting or the child sitting and you standing.

The owner of the restaurant is super arrogant, with zero entrepreneurial attitude. I understand his point that this is now high season and children block paying customer seats but what happens after these two busy weeks? There will be plenty of place in this restaurant but I can promise that we are not going there ever again while our stay for the whole season here in Verbier.
I can't really recommend this restaurant to anyone. Very very bad attitude from the owner.

Ps. After this bad experience, we still tried to give him another change and tried to make a reservation for 8 persons. His answer was that he doesn't want any groups, because they are causing so much problems...

“Great view, lovely sunny terrace”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

A lovely place for lunch, a lazy afternoon or an apres ski drink with stunning views. Conveniently located below the slopes of Savoleyere with return to Verbier village by ski (red run Le Rouge or ski way to Medran) or bus. As noted by others if you are having dinner organize a taxi or double check bus times.

In the summer there is car parking (three Porsches and a Ferrari last Sunday but that's Verbier for you). Good access by mountain bike down from trails above.

“Our snack didn't quite deliver and goods but great view”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We stopped by with our scooters (coming down from the top of the ski lift) for french fries and two cokes. A long delay in getting the fries and then a bill of over $20 seemed a bit high. Nice view and perhaps a dinner or something more grand might provide a better overall review.
