True, the location across from the bus station is not ideal (the usual great alpine view, however) and the seating is definitely wooden, but the ambiance is very pleasant and the food we had was terrific. The service was good as well as friendly. We would eagerly go back again.

Let's see now; for starters, the location isn't great, the seats are uncomfortable, we ate inside which was hot and very stuffy, the service not a wow, the food mediocre and finally it was over priced for a restaurant of this quality. I don't think I can remember the place for a single good thing.

At first glance, Le Vieux Pommier looks a little like a potential tourist trap, being right in the middle of town, having a brightly-lit sign and a strongly-mounted menu outside. Once inside though, this proves not to be the case - we found a really homely restaurant with lots of little surprises, and a great set menu.

We were given a table looking across to the rather unique (and possibly pointless) automatically-raising table housing wine, cheese and other show-items, surrounding a life-sizeapple tree decoration which presumably gives the restaurant its name. Interesting surroundings, then.

The wine list was excellent - with a particularly strong list of wines from the valley - we plumped for a half-bottle of a local white and weren't at all disappointed.

On the set menu - 19 euros for 3 courses - the soupette, polenta, trout, ice-cream and panacotta were all really quite nice, with a combination of hearty home-cooking and an air of sophistication. The polenta in particular was fabulous, while the trout was perfectly cooked and went nicely with the salted sage served alongside.

The service wavered slightly between friendly and aloof - but given that we gave up on any Italian within moments of sitting down, this is hardly surprising! Excellent overall then - and much to be recommended.

We went there for dinner. The service was excellent but the food was good but not something amazing. I believe at this price range you can find better options but if you go there you will deffinetly have a good time.

This place caters for the cheese lover, if you like melting your cheese at your table then it's great (but not cheap) as this seems their speciality, if you don't then it's nothing special, I went for fixed price menu and it was very average.
