This was a bit of a disappointment! This was a fantastic restaurant. The level has unfortunately decreased and the restaurant changed to a poor level. Their staple dish “Spaghetti Al Nerrano” with zucchini is off the menu which is a big mistake. Change is important...but this was a staple dish that you do not find in other restaurants. Their is also a lack of soul in the place since the departure of the brothers. I love this place and I hope they can fix their mistakes quickly, otherwise it will fall in the category of disappointments of Crans.More

Wonderful restaurant in the center of Montana. Excellent cuisine, made mostly out of local products. Very reasonable prices. Quality personnel which makes the difference. This restaurant is owned by Taillens local bakery which is a premium quality house, since many decades.

While hostess / other staff were pleasant, waiter was not friendly. We were several people & no one was particularly impressed with their burger & pasta choices. Dry, no exceptional flavor. The fish was a big portion while the vegan quinoa curry was small. Will...not return.More

I have visited this place on many occasions and was always impressed by the service and food quality at Le Farinet. The waiters are very friendly and helpful, they have managed to sneak us in on the busiest nights and easily provided us reservations on...the phone. Food is particularly impressive by not being too complicated. Everything is quite simple, yet very well prepared and plated. My favourites are the meat dishes like the Beef steak and the Le Farinet burger. You must visit this place when coming to Montana.More

I eat in this restaurant regularly since two years and although the menu hasn’t changed since, I still enjoy their best sellers. Some pasta dishes are really tasty, also Ambrosiana Schnitzel or fish/carpaccio dishes. In love with their dessert, Apple Pie with home made salted...caramel. Good choice of wines and spirits. It recently has changed the manager, in better. They also are vegan friendly and actually open on mondays, not closed as written:) Superfriendly and funny staff, always polite and professional. Enjoyable terrace!More

Went once for lunch and once for dinner. Lunch was a spaghetti sciuè sciuè (i.e. with a tomatoe sauce with tomatoe cherries and basil) consider it average, the person I was with had a linguine alla pescatora en papillote which was very good and tasty....For dinner we had veal with morel mushrooms (also average). My friends had sole and were satisfied. All in all an OK restaurant.More

I went with friends to this restaurant yesterday the menu has a verity of food options the seating area and restaurant location was good until it was time to pay, I only have euros and not Swiss francs, my bill was 230 Swiss francs the...waitress said it would be around 250 euros which is totally not since 100 Swiss francs is around 92 euros!! so I asked to speak to the manager who turns out to be the owner of the restaurant.. so when the owner of the restaurant came and I explained to him the currency exchange rate he told me that he will accept the rate of euros as equal as Swiss francs “because he’s not a bank to do a currency exchange” as he claimed. Needless to say that I’ve been visiting Switzerland for years and they’ve always done the exchange for me every where especially that they’re part of the European Union. This restaurant took over 20 euros from me that they don’t deserve, they had zero work ethics!! a total rip offs, Don’t go over there. There are many other good restaurants with great service and great work ethics. I’m writing this in hope that someone will read this before they get into what I went through with them! What a shame!More

This restaurant came recommended by two sets of Crans Montana habitués so we had high hopes for it. As soon we were seated we felt pressurized to choose our food, eat fast and leave. And the experience was not at all pleasant. Our waitress had...the temerity to tell us to hurry up and finish our appetizers as the main courses were ready. This was barely 10 minutes after we had started eating. The aubergine starter was good and went well with our bottle of traditional Gamay. The courgette allumettes were crispy on the outside and tender inside, and as we were sharing them, our waitress got impatient and rudely dumped the last few pieces on our plates so that she could clear the table. My homemade ribbons of pasta were okay, with an aubergine and smoked cheese sauce. My husband’s tuna with beetroot and romanesco broccoli was nicely seared but the presentation was odd. However, yet again, we felt rushed as the waitstaff came over numerous times to see if we were done. Same story with our dessert and coffees. We were asked to choose and the waitstaff kept hovering until we had done so. We had a 7pm booking and had promised to release the table at 9pm. In fact, we left by 8:30pm and neither the waitstaff nor the manager bothered to say goodbye or help us find our coats. I appreciate that it was a busy Friday night but the manner in which we were treated does not make us want to return even though we will be back to Crans quite often. A very disappointing experience overall.More
