Description: Golf Villars + Restaurant, inescapable mountain restaurant Villars, located on the ski slope "Rasse" and near the 18th green, skiers and hikers regale the winter but also the joy of golfers in the summer. Beautifully exposed face of Mont Blanc massif, the large sunny terrace offers spectacular views across the valley and mountains. His "Snowplage" and snack on "19" to the delight of a hurry. Accessible by train, ski, cross country skiing and hiking trails, restaurant pampers guests with simple and tasty food that should delight and make the travel. In a cozy and warm atmosphere around a large fireplace and bar-lounge, spend a pleasant time with us. The Golf Club is able to accommodate both seminars in a studious and privileged atmosphere as private events, gala dinners, theme evenings up to one hundred twenty people

“Great for skiers”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

It's right on the slopes and has one of the best views in the region. Lovely outside when its sunny but it does get very busy in season, booking a must. Good staff and consistently yummy food that's perfect for lunch. Non skiers can join from the Villars/Bretaye train, we have pushed push chairs through the snow to get there!

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

We booked a table at the Restaurant du Golf, Villars, planning to ski over there, have a leisurely lunch in the sunshine and then ski back. The restaurant operates on 2 booking times for lunch and we booked for 1:30pm. However, we were not seated until nearly 2pm and we did not receive any food until 3pm... When, after having been there 1hr 20 mins, we enquired about how long our food would take, the staff merely shrugged their shoulders. They could not have given a better impression of not caring. When the food finally arrived it was dreadful. The croute royale was quite literally a piece of white sliced bread with some melted cheese on top - and they were charging CHF24 for it!
All in all this restaurant, the food and the service is an absolute disgrace. Such a shame.

“Lovely place, hike there or ski there in the winter; worth it!”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

We have been coming to this place for years throughout the seasons. What a wonderful quintessential oasis after a few great runs. The fondue is excellent, anything with the house pomme Frits are great. We love their goat cheese in phyllo dough with salad that was offset by a dark vinaigrette and winter greens. Steak was tough ( these cows are made for milking!) but sauces are delicious. house fruit tarts are a must, finish off with a mildly roasted coffee! Never disappointed.

A number of the front facing staff are Portuguese and speak some english, they are very tolerant or broken French and great with kids.

Be sure to make reservations! We witnessed them turn away some very cold and disappointed skier. You can also access this place by the train getting off at the station... Le golf ...and
walking with snow boots for 8 mins. Good meeting point at the middle of the day for non skiers.
