Description: The Restaurant is where the Cookie story began. December 2008 started off with the opening of a restaurant in Gryon, on your way to Alpe des Chaux and Solalex, that was trying something different to what was done at the time in the Swiss Alps. Cookie Restaurant, through the hand of David and his team, estabilished itself as the de-facto eating space in the Villars-Gryon area. After a 2 year hiatus from 2013 until 2015, and true to its roots, the restaurant has re-opened with Chef Enzo Gallego allowing customers to leave comments such as "the cuisson du poisson était magique!". Lunch or dinner, come and sample some the Alps' finest cuisine.

“Fancy a Cookie?”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Taken by friends who live in Villar. Lovely atmosphere, very welcoming staff and lots of thought put into aesthetics. Food was very tasty and ample in size and nicely presented. Restaurant was busy but we were never made to feel as though we were being rushed. All in all, a lovely evening in Cookie.

Thank Debbie B

“Well Worth a Visit”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Don't let the (silly) American name put you off! The Cookie Bar etc, is really worth a visit, where you'll receive a warm friendly welcome if out for a quick coffee or something more substantial. Discovered this bar / restaurant on the 22rd August, and would say it's well worth a visit.

“Australian owned and run but fortunately not that much Australian food - far better!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Probably right now the best restaurant in the Villars/Gryon area. Good varied menu, extending from Green Chicken Curry (very good) to great fresh fish to excellent calamari (possibly Australian style - forgivable in this instance!). Great service, pleasing terrace. Altogether very good.

“Weirdest menu combinations possible, but yummy if you’re looking for a non Swiss treat.”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

The high number of UK and other international number plates on the parking indicate this is not the normal Swiss restaurant, but an alternative to rosti and cheese.
The limited menu has a weird selection of dishes mostly popular in the UK (explains the plates). I had Peking duck with pancakes (ozzy version) and a chicken curry, both 7/10. Friendly service and not overly expensive.
Cookie also has a deli in Villars-s-O and a ski bar/resto on the mountain.
