Our first night in Chatel was spent at Le Hors Piste. I had phoned ahead (recommended to avoid disappointment)to reserve a table for seven which was ready and waiting. The menu was just what we needed - with a great selection of pizzas, delicious starters and burgers as well as imaginative specials of the day. There was also a huge... More

I went early with my hungry son when the restaurant opened. We were the first customers of the evening to order food. We waited 15 minutes for kitchen to officially open, which was fine. But then it took an additional 45 minutes for 2 orders of fish n chips to arrive. And there was no apology or explanation, or even... More

We pride ourselves on our quality of food and customer service, and we should have explained to you that we had experienced some technical difficulties that slowed down service in the early evening. Hopefully you will come and see us again and we can... More

A small but very friendly restaurant/bar/pizzeria in the centre of Chatel, close to the church, offering all freshly cooked food and superb wines, spirits and beers. This is a place not to be missed.

Ended up here by mistaken identity as planned to go to the restaurant next door but best mistake ever! Lovely warm welcome, refreshing menu away from the standard alpine fayre of fondue & raclette. Nice modern feel to the place, very relaxed but also professional both in terms of service & food. I've travelled the world & eaten lots of... More

I had a provencal type burger which as delicious and my partner had the jalopeno one which was hot enough for him. The home cooked fries are... More

Description
The only thing we have in our freezer is ice cream and booze! All of our food is homemade, from the buns for the burgers to the burger sauce and hand-cut chips. Our pizzas are made from truly wonderful Napolitan flour and incredibly good mozzarella. We have a very small but perfectly formed menu, lovingly prepared for you by our food obsessed boys Tony and PomPom in the kitchen. The bar is just a cool place to hang out and relax with friends, and be served delicious wines from around the world, artisanal local beers, and premium spirits , by our lovely ladies Tina and Amy. Downstairs is our resident pizzaiolo Jem, and his fab sidekick Rosie. You're gonna love those pizzas !! But please be patient, it takes a lot of time and love to produce food this fresh and of this quality! SLOW FAST FOOD !!
