The restaurant feels cosy and seems to be a family run business. The owners are warm and welcoming. The menu is simple and served much the same fare as most other restaurants in town. We found it slightly pricier than some of the other restaurants...More

Book in advance! It took us three attempts to get a table here but was well worth it. A great menu choice and very warm welcome in the form of courtesy staff, a roaring log fire and choices other than fondue and more cheese.

So friendly, relaxed and welcoming. This has become one of our favourite places to go for yummy raclette. It's reasonably priced, the children love it here too and the service is great.

First time in the restaurant but will certainly be going back. Just before you get to the telecabine in the village. The brochette de boeuf I had was very tender and tasty with fries, salad and two sauces. Dessert also, sundae au citron was lovely....More

The restaurant is really busy so book, I would ask for a table away from the fire as although it provides the great atmosphere and some of the cooking it is really hot! The steak was great and the local dishes our party tried were...More
