the welcome at the pub was warm but lost a few degrees when we got up at the restaurant. service isnt really what they are best at. you pay for the atmosphere and decoration more than what you end up having in your plate. vegetarian options are a risotto for 28chf. the most expensive bowl of rice i've ever paid for. the ladies was out of service and the gents had a blocked toilet and the other one wasnt really super to be in with a child the wash bassin was dirty too.

This old building in the central part of Martigny is separated over a square mezzanine, owned by a couple that have a few other restaurants in the same town, they offer contemporary food for reasonable prices according to Swiss standards. The choice of wines is vast, largely influenced by the fact thatMartigny is right in the middle of a wine producing county, so you may see some names, grapes and assemblages you will never see elsewhere.

If you are not into lunch or dinner, there is aways the possibility to have a 'apero' , or a drink after 5 pm, where the cow flies above your head.

We had a fantastic set lunch - the meal comprised of a salad, entrecote steak (really large portion) with french fries and amazing butter based sauce, topped off by a chocolate mousse. Fr 26 francs. The portions were large enough for our younger son to share with us.
Good selection of wines.
Moreover the waitresses were very helpful and spoke English (no English menu though).
Would definitely go there again if in the vicinity.
Downstairs there is a bar whoch would likely be lively in the late evening.

The restaurant is well placed and has an appealing menu (if you like traditional French/Swiss cuisine)... however, I was disappointed by the food in general and for the price you pay in Martigny, expected better.
