“Top traditional ski food”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Welcome and service was good, menu had all the standard traditional dishes, our Raclette was excellent, filling and the charcuterie plate that came with it for each individual was very full

Overall, couldn't fault it

“Good Food”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Nice restaraunt, our broken French and their broken English led to a pleasant evening out. Large selection of local foods and lovely character of building and surroundings

“Disappointed by poor service despite good food and Alp-interior”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We went based on previous experience and recommendations but were very disappointed. The food was good and the ambience was very Swiss/French-Alp which is great and what you expect/come to visit the area for. However, the service was absolutely shocking - our food order was not taken for a long time, our drinks order took a long time to come and was incorrect, whenever we asked for something we were grunted at and treated as if we were not wanted. I am sure that this was mainly due to the person that served us but the restaurant should make sure that it employs the staff it wants to have to represent the restaurant and this waitress is not a positive ad for the restaurant. Despite the food, we probably would think twice about going back.

“A bit disappointed based on expectations”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Dined mid-week as a group of 4. Waited a long time to be served and between courses. My steak was nothing special and I wasn't that impressed overall. Others in our party were reasonably happy. Recommend choosing a quiet time and careful choice of menu.

“Historic building with a great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is a lovely place for an evening meal, with cosy rooms and fascinating artefacts decorating the walls. Delicious food and the set menus are particularly good
