dining in Verbier ?

having been told recently that I should have made dinner reservations already for our trip to Verbier mid-july I was wondering...

can anyone recommend a nice place - not Michelin ** but not KFC either.

many thanks,

g

Re: dining in Verbier ?

The restaurant in this hotel that i took the OH to last summer is pretty good; Swiss prices in Verbier mind, but nevertheless good quality.

EDIT- we went to same music festival too - as it was raining hard after the concert, and we had booked a table at the restaurant they kindly came to pick us up

Re: dining in Verbier ?

If you want a restaurant on the mountain go to Marlenaz. Stunning views, good food, great friendly service, it's a 5 min drive up the mountain (ask them for drrections when booking) www.marlenaz.ch

If you would like one near town, but a 10 min walk up hill (or 1 min drive) http://www.alcapone-verbier.com/

If you would like one in town with a busy atmosphere try Fer a Cheval:

If you would like something in town more classy but still resonable:

Good luck!

Re: dining in Verbier ?

If you like meat, I would go with "Au Vieux Verbier". It is located right beside the Medran ski lift (the main departure stop). They do have other great food as well if there are non meat eaters in the group.

They have their specialty that is called La Potence which in English is Hangman's gallows. I highly recommend it.They grill the meat on a type of mace with spikes that is then placed on the gallows and then they flambé it at your table. Served with rice, chips and different sauces.

The house red wine is great as well.

Strongly recommend reservations. They may even have two seatings if it is during the festival. Suggest the later one so you can enjoy without time pressure.

Re: dining in Verbier ?

A bit out of town, local fare, stunning spot: la Marmotte.
A classic, if you don't at least stop for a drink you haven't been in town: Fer à Cheval (horrid pizzas though, but the plat du jour at lunch is quite decent).
Le Nevai - overpriced (like all) but tasty, good international style food.
The T-Bar is a nice café/sports bar, where you can stop at lunch for light fare (and Bruce is a fun guy).
Le Chalet d'Adrien is the local 5 stars, but the café side (le Grenier) offers a nice tartar steak, not too overpriced.
Off-Shore of course - off season however - bof bof.
