If you are a cheese fan you should visit this awesome place with a nice view on the 2nd floor. You will not be dissapointed. The staff is super friendly and super fast.

The duck was OK, but a bit expensive. Poor service and not particularly interested in the customers.No family restaurant. Check the meny carefully and don't trust the waitress about the menu.

Had a super meal here with excellent friendly service. The Foie Gras starter was fabulous while the scallop starter was also lovely (but be aware that it is a cold dish). Tried the calf's head main! interesting dish but probably not to too many peoples taste. The meat is taken off the bone but it is quite gelatinous and fatty.... More

We went for a super meal here without the kids. The food was superb - we tried the local cheese dish raclette here which was fun.. Service was excellent - there's 2 sittings 7pm and 9.30pm which may not appeal to everyone but early sittings work for us when you need to get up early to ski!

On our last visit three years ago we had a dinner here and it blew us away!! So naturally we wanted to return and we were somewhat "saving it" for later in our trip as remembered the food being stunning - so yes, the bar was set high, purely on a previous experience, and we did really look forward to...

Always happy to be eating here, with everything on the menu being pretty tasty, my particular favourite is the grilled sirloin steak, napoleon potatoes with creamed foie gras and pan fried wood mushrooms, just remember that the French tend to under do their meat compared with us Brits, so bear that in mind, when specifying how you want your steak...

Cosy little restaurant offering local alpine dishes that will boost back your energy - we tasted the Fondue Vacherin on recommendation together with old style Raclette & Magret de Canard between 6. First time to try this Fondue variation - was surprised by the more mature/mustier taste which worked well for us - of course the restaurant provided us with... More
