Our party of 10 visitied this restaurant on 9th March 2011 for dinner on our chalet host's night off. The menu was quite varied and appealing, with dishes ranging from local Swiss/French cuisine to Italian-style pizzas. The prices were rather typical of Alpine ski resorts - a fair bit higher than the average restaurant in the UK.

A friend and I shared the local dish of "charbonnade" - a BBQ-style charcoal pot is brought to the table, which slots into a specially-made hole in the table between the two diners. Then a selection of meat (beef, chicken or both) is served and the diners cook it themselves according to taste. My friend and I opted for beef and, to be honest, the portion was rather small for two people - probably about the same amount as one large steak cut into strips. However, the beef was of good quality and it was served with layered garlic potatoes, French green beans wrapped in bacon and a selection of wild mushrooms fried in garlic butter, all of which were extremely tasty!

The charbonnade was 39 Swiss Francs (CHF) (£26) per person and the pizzas that some of the others in the party got were in the region of CHF10-20 (£7-14). The cheapest bottle of red wine on the menu was around CHF30 (£20).

Service was pretty good, although the staff got a couple of the pizza orders completely wrong and those diners had to wait an extra 20 minutes or so before getting the pizzas they actually ordered.

Overall, I would recomment this restaurant and I would visit it again if I were to return to Champéry in the future.
