“Sort out the service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Just been back a few times. The place itself is as great as it was in summer but the service is quite disorganised and everything feels a bit of an effort. Came a few beers before finishing up but on two occasions only had one because it was all just too slow and once had to cancel the order after waiting so long.

Haven't gone in the evening yet for dinner so my hopes are still high for that.

Well located on the main ski slope going to the village of Valtournenche. Modern and comfortable restaurant with very good food, quick, professional and efficient service.

“Unbelieveble value for your money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Food is excellent and almost too cheap! Restaurants cheese chellar is also must see thing. Owner is really putting his heart in this restaurant and customer can feel it.

“Alpine charm meets London chic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

This charming Alpine eatery is located in a perfect setting with spectacular mountain views. A recent addition to the food scene in Valtournenche/Cervinia, we saw it in winter before it opened and had our first meal there in July 2012.

The food was outstanding, the service was great and the atmosphere stunning. It is not cheap but great value for the high quality (and better value for money than most high end places in Zermatt).

It'll be perfect for apre-ski on the large outside terrace and for some fine dining in the evening. It is located at the end of the long run from Plateau Rosa (3480m) to Valtournenche (1520m) in essentially one long run (Pistes 7, 35 and 1). It is up on the hill some 600m before the end of the piste next to the Residence Cervinio 2 RTA (which is the colourful building just before the first tunnel). You also get some great mountain views with only one other building around (i.e. the colourful RTA).
