On a grey December Saturday we were looking around for a new restaurant to try, and found la Régence-Balavaud reviewed on Trip Advisor. It was super! Small, cosy and very pretty dining room blending the old (vaulted stone ceilings of an old wine cellar) with the new (modern and very atttractive furniture). The waiters were delightful. Good welcome, put us at a nice table, and the menu came promptly as well as the apéro we ordered - a glass of local Johannis.

We chose one of the menus (80frs for three courses plus the amuse-bouche). The starter was foie gras, clearly home made and very good. Main course was a piece of beef filet with a crusting of bone marrow. Sinfully delicious! and the dessert was a chocolate fondant on a bed of tangy tropical "tiny diced" fruit.

We had an open wine - a local Cornalin which is one of our favourites and which stands up well to a strong dish of meat.

This restaurant has 14 points in the Gault-Millau guide. In our opinion it deserves more and likely will get another soon.

There is a lovely large terrace with great views of the vineyards. Needless to say in December we didn't sit out there! And the restaurant has its own cave (wine cellar) with tasteings. Vetroz is, for those who do not know the Valais, a small village in the centre of our best vineyards and well worth exploring.

I think we will be back at the Régence-Balavaud very soon!
