This restaurant used to be a favourite for lunch when skiing but seems to have changed hands. We had a watery soup and a near tasteless ravioli. It could just be bad luck of course but Interesting to note there were no Italians eating either inside or out, all ski tourists. There is much better food to be had in... More

The Belvedere looks quite modest and is typical of the great refuge restaurants you could ski past, but don't. Great for a coffee on the sunny terrace, but also return to treat your selg to a gorgeous mountain lunch. This is quality local dishes and really friendly service!

If you want to relax don't stop here. The way they treat their customers is rude, not educated, and really bad. Food is quite good, but it happens that you wait for half an hour and then your table is taken from someone just arrived.... because they don't manage the queue ! And if you try to complain about it... More

We stopped here for lunch on two occasions. The experience was great. The Belvedere prides itself that the food provided to its customers is local sourced and prepared in house. The focus for the owner is to provide local organic ingredients. We were a party of six and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The venue offers a good... More

Located along Belvedere slope we have organized a company dinner up there. Food was great, interesting wine selection (mainly from Piedmont region 👍) and warm and friendly atmosphere. It was snowing therefore we cannot enjoying Matterhorn view but it was great for going down skiing to Champoluc after dinner. Logistic very well organized for those without ski too.

We stopped for lunch here for 3 consecutive days. The staff were very friendly and served up a good menu of local food and decent wines. There is loud music on the outdoor terrace, but it is quiet and pleasant in the restaurant area. We spent a happy time in both areas. The restaurant seats about 30 people on 3... More

This was an excellent hike up from Crest but some minor words of caution: This rif' advertises home brewed beer but none appeared available. Although I enjoyed the experience of a Grand Cru Moretti on the one hand, it was far too strong @ 6.8% (!) particular @ that height! ;-)

We have had several bombadinos in this place but I really enjoyed having a hot chocolate with cream "corrected" with eau de vie - yum! That's reserved for the end of the day. My husband and I shared a lunchtime platter of cold meats which were delicious and plentiful while the daughter had delicious fresh pasta. Might try and stay... More

Just before the end of a great skiers day we found this place for a refreshing beer. The sun, the music and the beer made us feel very good. Just one short slope left and the day will be perfect.

Great place to stop for foods and drinks directly on the slopes in Champoluc. Situated on top of the very slow 2-chair lift when heading towards Champoluc. Rather slow service, and you get the feeling that there is a reason for this. Is everything people smoke here legal? Anyway; you can get a burger and traditional dishes. Had a great... More
