“Nice, but allow time when it is busy”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is a very pleasant restaurant by day (lovely terraces outside for lunch) and by evening. Downstairs there is a bar with an eclectic selection of live music until about 7pm, then the emphasis shifts to the restaurant upstairs. There is plenty of space between the tables, which gives it a fairly relaxed feel. Food is generally good, with some house specialities based on ham and fondue. It can get very busy at times - booking recommended - and when that happens the service can rather grind to a halt. So make sure to allow plenty of time!

“avoid!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

terrible food and terrible service - very stressful evening. We had booked for a party of 9: our food arrived at completely different times they last meal being 45 min's late - having been completely forgotten.The (10 euro) french onion soup was horrible and so cold the cheese hadn't melted. When we complained we were told there was a large party upstairs and offered no apologies.

“Good food. One of the best with direct acess by skis”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We visited this place 2 times during our stay. Both times for lunch and came directly from the mountain.
I would not praise the service, but we did not expect it to be a Michelin-level. There were a lot of people and the waiters did just the minimum necessary things to feed you.
But we liked the food very much. The grilled veal for 2 ( I do not exactly remember the name of the dish) was delicious. The side dishes were nice too. We also liked the entrecote and the tomato-mozarella salad.
I would not recommend beef tartare, as it is just moderate and simple. I tried much better tartar in other places, le 1950 brasserie for example.

There is also one problem I should mention. It is a very common practice that you can get a broken glass or plate, they simply do not bother to check. This is not good for such a place.

I hope the management of the restaurant reads the comments and may be they will pay attention to some problems, because they can make a very good place with a littke effort.

“Stay well clear!!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This restaurant was appallingly awful; expensive, poor service and bad attitude towards the British. We booked for lunch and were the first in the restaurant. There were eight of us, we ordered and our food arrived in a haphazard fashion over a period of 35 to 65 minutes from ordering (main course arriving without accompanying vegatables/salad was common). The cost was high and given the poor service can be described as a rip-off. My advice: stay well clear!!
