Chose to eat here from previous trip advisor reviews, but had a better value/quality meal, with larger portions more suitable for apres-ski/snowboard, at La Trattoria which was recommended by locals.

We went on a Saturday night for my boyfriend's birthday - luckily we booked in advance because it was very very crowded and confusing with tons of people waiting out the door. Once we were seated the service was very fast and the waiter spoke English which was very helpful. We got the cheese fondue and it was delicious -... More

Very pleasant outdoor seating. House wine by carafe reasonable and good. We both went with a fixed price menu. We took the waiter's suggestions and were well-fed. There was a guitarist playing which was a nice touch. Nice evening.

We ate here a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The staff were very friendly and warm, and both the humans and the dogs in our party were made to feel at home. I recommend the chips and the fondue.

We were not impressed at all by the food we were served at this restaurant. Poor value and poor quality - a tourist trap!

Having visited the lovely Land Art exhibition down the street, we decided to give this funky looking "snack" a try. Warm welcome, cool playlist, excellent menu with a variety of homemade daily specials. All four of us opted for the Tourte Montagnarde which we found to be absolutely delicious. We topped off our lunch with the Café Gourmand and among... More

I had a fantastic piece of local lamb and we ordered the chocolate fondue at the same time. It came with brilliant fresh fruit - the only problem was the huge portions! Great service and a must if you are in the town.

My wife and I were passing through town and stopped into this town for a light lunch. We were welcomed into the restaurant by a very energetic and enthusiastic waiter who was obviously proud of his restaurant, town and his local produce. He went to great lengths to explain the menu (in English for us) and all of the local... More

We were here in March 2015 and enjoyed it so much we booked in for the first night of our January 2016 trip. We got a table on the ground floor this time, great atmosphere!
