“Watch the credit card charges”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

After a nice meal, with a very friendly waitress, we paid the bill with a UK credit card. Although the machine correctly showed the Swiss Franc amount the slip printed out was in pounds with a 3.3% margin added! Although we complained we were told nothing could be done. We suggest anyone who eats here pays cash.

“Lovely food with spectacular views”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We had a light dinner at Chez Gaby after our arrival in Val d'illiez. I had a quiche and salad and my wife had a potato and cheese soup. Both were very good. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was delivered in a very reasonable time. We were given complimentary bread and a delicious tomato and herb dipping sauce while we waited for the food to arrive. As the evening grew colder, we moved inside to have our dessert - coffee and icecream Sundae. Both were well-presented and enjoyable. The views from the terrace are absolutely spectacular. Although expensive by our standards, it was not expensive by Swiss standards, and quite economical compared to the only other operating restaurant in Val d'Illiez. If you are staying in the area, pick a fine day and enjoy the food and the view at Chez Gaby.

“Best food in the Swiss sector of the Portes du Soleil”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

The title says it all. I have worked in the Portes du Soleil for 8 years and lunch regularly at Chez Gaby with friends and clients. I couldn't afford to eat here every day but when I want a treat this is where I head to. The views are unbeatable and I disagree with the previous review about change of ownership. In my experience the staff are efficient and friendly and the food is as good as it always has been. A visit to the Portes du Soleil would not be complete without a goulash soup or one of the delicious Rostis!

“Lunch”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We live locally and have used this place before and had a great lunch. It has changed ownership and it is now badly run. Stopped for lunch on a Friday in January out of high season. We waited 1hour for our food, the service is terrible and the waitress very rude. After complaining the patron took 2of our 4 meals off the bill. Avoid this place at all costs if you don't want to spend your ski day sitting in a restaurant feeling hungry! There were tables of ski parties still waiting for food after an hour when we left. Don't let your ski guide or instructor talk you into stopping here either!
