Located at the end of the Galeries Defago hiking route is a casual place to take a break or have a nice Suisse meal . The "Les Rives" is also accessible by car and it is only a 10 minute drive from the Champery village The nice rustic ambience is complimented by efficient and friendly staff who are very attentive....

We walked up the mountain to Cantine des Rives so we were cold and hungry. The welcome was just what was needed, warming and very friendly. The food was superb. Plentiful. Swift service. There was a lively buzz to the place, happy and relaxed. Did not feel any pressure to hurry up. A wonderful place to eat, and spectacular views... More

I don't easily give top marks but this restaurant thoroughly deserves them. The food is local specialities but in a very fresh way. We had fondue which was one of the best we ever had (and we live in Switzerland). The service was very pleasant, professional and efficient. Prices are fair and the views over Champery are a bonus. We... More

Champery is one of the loveliest places on this world and the restaurant is a classic in Champery. You need to take the car or walk close to an hour from Champery. It is located at the end of the Galery Defago, an impressive path along the rocks. The kitchen has improved with the new owner. La terrine and la... More

Being able to eat outside in the Cantine's uncrowded and spacious outdoor area was a delight. We had excellent terrine or salads for starters, with the best being one with goat's cheese and tapenade in a filo parcel, followed by enormous lamb shanks, beautifully flavoursome. Under the previous ownership, the loos were accessible from outside, ideally located for after slogging... More

We stumbled across this place when we were out trying to find the start of a walk. It was very Swiss, with very limited English spoken by staff but that was absolutely fine with us. Food was amazing. Would definitely seek this restaurant again if ever in Champery again

A gorgeous setting, and a restaurant managed more professionally than other places in the area. For a change, it is not your typical amateurish service that comes from families converting themselves into 'restaurateurs' over-night. The food is good, and the service courteous and prompt. Value-for money is decent. We will be back.

One of my favourites! Just a ten minute drive uphill from Champéry village & nestling by a road running across the lower part of the mountains. Typical Swiss chalet style, simple but very good food, good wines & friendly service. A great place to be to start some mountains walks including one which is a track cut into the lower... More
