“This is a REALLY Good Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

The chef used to have a 1 star Michelin establishment in Champery, I believe.

It shows.

The cuisine is top-notch. Don't let the casual surroundings foll you. The food and presentation are as good as you will find in Villars. I have eaten at least 5 dinners in the past year or so at the Alpe Fleurie, and each one has been as good as the last. The menu is part Swiss, part Escoffier, and part Savoyard. Sort of a blend of the best of the region, with some interesting original thought added to the mix.

The staff is helpful and attentive, and while the atmosphere is certainly informal, they are gracious and warm, and eager to please. For anyone seeking a great dinner in Villars, this would have to be one of my very top recommendations.

“Fine dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Loved the tasting menu. 7 courses of exquisitely and creatively prepared ingredients. Would have been nice to see the chef and talk to him in person during or after the dinner - he had clearly gone to a lot of trouble!

“Alpe Fleurie Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

September 2012
Having enjoyed lunches on the sunny terrace in March, we returned in September for a light supper. Disappointing and very expensive for what we ordered. 12 chf for a bowl of uninspiring courgette soup and the platter of charcuterie although pleasant was not memorable.
You need to do better than this.

“One of the best restaurants in Villars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Villars used to have several outstanding restaurant a few years ago... Many closed since. However one very good news came from the Greg Pollock family who decided not to let down on one the oldest and most typical restaurants of the resort, L'Alpe Fleurie. I have been thre four times now and must say, that four times we were impressed and in company of different nationalities (Indian, Brazilian, American and ... Swiss). The service is friendly and skilled at understanding your needs (nformal/gourmet meal, in a hurry/time to appreciate, warm and friendly/reserved and distant). THis is probably due to a mythic figure of the resort, Jean-Claude Ricôme having accepted to become the manager. The quality and originality of the menu is outstanding, a blend of typical and exotic food. Well done guys, I recommend warmly and believe me I am extermely demanding when it comes to restaurants...

“Delicious dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Our dinner was delicious, though the service was a bit abrupt. The owner, Belinda, could not have been more welcoming, but one or two of her staff were eager to get us on our way after dinner. Not a serious issue, however...we will return.
