friendly staff that make you feel valued. Food very good indeed, steak tartar worth trying. Fabulous terrace with wonderful views on a sunny day or evening, perfect for a relaxing meal. One of my favourite places to eat.

Nice and cosy restaurant. Somewhat complicated menu to read. Choice between good steakso, fish and pastas. Very friendly service.
In summer pleasant terrace.

Went there on a sunny day in September and we're given a nice table on the terrace. We ordered salads as first courses, then a couple of tartar steaks, a regular one (on hot stone) and a fondue, as well as some white (bottle) and red wine (by the glass - nice selection). Everything was very good, with decent portions (excepted for the fondue - we had to order a second one, but we are Swiss :-)). The couple of deserts we tried were fine too. The only issue is the staff that is a bit too cheeky in my view. The service was however very attentive. Overall, we'll certainly go back on our next trip to Villars!

Food was very nicely prepared. L'Achimiste was recommended by a local and he was right. I had scallops and risotto and it was perfect. The house wine was as good as my American taste buds can enjoy. I found the waiter extremely nice and highly recommend the place too.
