Excellent service for a single person today + enjoyable light lunch. Previous rosti was also very good. Convenient location too!

This must be the worst restaurant in the Villars ski area. You may die of hunger before they take your order, and when food finally arrives, it isn't what you ordered! The price is outrageous for the poor quality of the food.

Obviously this restaurant relies on the unsuspecting "one day tourist" who eats here once and won't be back.

A tasteless, but vaguely veggie soup was served without so much as a slice of bread.

Simply a disgrace in an area heavily reliant on tourism, their licence should be revoked.

My advice? Avoid at all costs. You'll get a decent meal chez Cookie, Lac de Chavonnes, Restaurant du Golf, L'étable or the nearby resort of les Diablerets.

We were having lunch every day in this restaurant with our Russian friens during the whole Christmas period, including the New Years Diner which was just great and unforgettable!
The service staff were very friendly and professional. The quality of the dishes served were excellent and the products freshly prepared. The Management has changed and the Col has much improuved in several matters. The Self service Restaurant and its staff is clean and tidy now and the exposed products are fresh; that was not the cases the last years. The sandwiches and tartes de jours are excellent! Bravo!
The only thing i would recommand is to reserve the table one day before to avoid an one hour waiting experience.

Have eaten over many years here (UPSTAIRS) during the ski season and was always good fast and professional service with the food of decent standard, they knew what they were doing. Now it has become a mess, the ONE waitress (think her name was ANNE or ANNA) was worked off her legs, she did her best, the problem here is management. Food arriving late, some with food some without, side plates never arriving, hard to get a replacement carafe of wine, tables that had finished being left with dirty plates etc still lying there. As I say just this ONE waitress having it all to do. Who ever is now running this place should take a few tips from the previous owners or customers will leave in droves. The kitchen also needs to up itself!!!
