Nice place in Val Tho.
We went again to this restaurant with 2 families. The food is very nice: excellent fish and meat ...with nice taste.
The service was friendly , students who tried their best, but forgot to bring bread or other stuff...
the restaurant is cosy but very crowded with a lot of noise.
No kids meal - so they could share a big entrecôte (750 g !)

We had a nice delicious dinner at this place. Good beer as well. Kids claimed the steaks were the best in town. I had a chef’s special and it was good. So, highly recommendable!

This restaurant was a great find particularly after a long days skiing, I had the chefs special 2 plats - potato cakes starter and baked salmon with grilled cabbage main with a side salad (extra), excellent food extremely tasty and very filling. Highly recommended..

On a skiing holiday and just can't stand the 60's style fondue evening in the hotel.
Our rep recommended John's.
The food was delicious and the waitress couldn't have been more helpful.
Bit pricey, but we are in the Alps miles from anywhere.

The ambiance of the night was totally ruined by a lady at the bar, who I think was the owner.
The waitress just shrugged when we had a word about the noise.
The lady, I use the term loosely, could not have been louder if she'd had a megaphone. She was address a group of women and was bragging at the top of her voice about her sex life. Not pleasant when you are having a supposedly romantic meal with your wife.
I would recommend this place for the food, service and ambiance, IF you are lucky enough to be there on a night when the owner isn't. It would have got 5 stars on any other day.
