Popped in here looking for a simple pasta meal. Got a bowl of pretty soggy spaghetti with a not too memorable sauce on top. Staff were friendly enough but this was not a highlight of my trip to Villars.

Lovely cosy atmosphere. Friendly service. Great food. Obviously the roasts are the thing! Flambeed 'a table'. Veg served with our roast chicken were a bit disappointing - rather al dente and the rosti wasn't crispy enough - but meat was very tasty.

After a long day driving from England and feeling too tired to start preparing food, we decided to drop in at La Rotisserie des Alpes for a light supper.
We were greeted with a smile and warm welcome from our waiter who came from Eastern Europe. The menu swiftly appeared and seconds later a chilled and very welcome bottle of Swiss wine was served. We had already apologised for our late arrival, but were advised it was not a problem - the chef was around for another half hour or so. As it was late, we ordered soup of the day and 3 cold dishes. The soup appeared home made - and was steaming hot and very tasty. Our cold dishes were a plate of charcuterie, a selection of cheeses and a tuna dish. All were delicious and delivered with a large basket of bread. The bill was around 65chf for the three of us including local wine which we considered very good value for Villars. The exchange rate makes everything very expensive for visitors, as someone else who wrote a review has already mentioned, but we will go back again next month. If you eat light, it is not so hard on your wallet (or your waistline)....Another good tip is to go out for lunch and try the fixed price menu which is normally very good value at most restaurants and less expensive than dinner.

We rented a home in nearby Gryon and wanted a tradition Swiss meal. We got it at La Rotisserie des Alpes! The waiter didn't speak much English, but no problem as my wife speaks French. Amusingly, she was even asked to translate by the very apologetic and appreciative waiter who was dealing with an older British couple who made no attempt to speak French and were having difficulty ordering.

The fondue was amazing... a combination a several cheeses that made it a bit more flavorful than some more simple fondues we've had. Of course they also had a comprehensive collection of Swiss wine to go with our meal.

We felt very welcome there and would definitely go back!

Service is so good, I would guess it is some kind of family business... All waiters are confident, friendly, ready to advise. Go for beef filet, it is the best. Finish with Swiss chocolate mousse. Reasonable price.
Book in advance
