Our friend living in Martigny invited us for lunch to this restaurant, she described it as 'exquisite cuisine'! The set menu was enormous, so we decided to have one dish each and a dessert. I ordered veal with wild mushrooms, my husband ordered salmon fish and my friend ordered coquis St Jacques. Portion was big enough, the taste was delicious and we enjoyed every bite of our meals, We had red wine called Cornell, a typical Valaisan red wine, went very well with the food. Dessert came and thank God it was lighter than we thought ! It wasn't cheap, easily 250SF for dishes we had. but we enjoyed, so we paid the right price for the right food! Service was also excellent.

I had been there twice before and was wowed. I returned last night with y daughter and granddaughter and again were very pleasantly surprised. The service was very efficient and above all personable and attentive and the Fondue selection outstanding. The taste delicious. the prices very reasonable. It was a very great evening in a nice and cozy ambience and I will return many more times and can really recommend this place for an authentic Swiss dinner experience. The restaurant is frequented by locals.

We went back to Orsières and this restaurant, after having known and enjoyed the previous chef. It is indeed an incredible experience...! We took the big menu, and wines to match, The service is very attentive and professional. What is amazing is what you get in your plates : a composition of various foods, in layers and making at times a sort of monument, with absolutely first class ingredients, but so tangled and making it hard to find the original taste of the best components in the dish...An example : a great south african scampi is so mixed with a sea weed bed, covering a fish tartar, that neither has any original taste left. The philosophy of the great chefs, "le produit et rien que le produit", is shaken aback. The colours in the plates are like a enormous firework, with every possible tone, but after three or four plates decorated each one almost the same, you get a bit tired. To me, it seems like if it were too much of...too much ! Simplicity is not the key word...! Of course, the art of the cook is fantastic ! And every dish is a work of art by itself ! But add all the courses, and it is a bit too much. We were many people together for this great meal, and the wines were all excellent, but were poured in too large quantities for people who had to drive, and they were all carried away almost full...adding to an astronomical bill for the lot ! And the prices of the wines are very expensive. So, an interesting experience, a very fine meal with great dishes, but more simplicity would allow us to enjoy it at a higher level.

We went because it was close by on our first evening, and there was a vegetarian dish on the board outside (tagliatelle with chanterelles). We both had excellent salads to start. My wife had ... Erm, fish and chips (perch meuniere which came with a mountain of chips which slightly threw her). I have to say that my heart sank a bit when I saw my tagliatelle. How often is the option for vegetarians a risotto or pasta dish which is both too fatty and rich and too unvaried and starchy, so it becomes a tedious burden. However it turned out to be excellent all the way through, with the mushrooms delightful. The local wine was also very good, and we will be looking out for it in future. If we'd been staying longer (or it was open on Sunday) we'd no doubt have gone back.

This is a lovely and very local hotel/restaurant. The restaurant is very popular with the locals and those guys that come across is by accident.
Discovered this place having come through the Grand Saint Bernard tunnel from Italy. We just had a light lunch. I had a Sandwich and my wife had a salad. The food was just what we wanted, the prices were reasonable and the service was good. What more do you want as a hungry traveler? If we pass this way again, we'll certainly stop.

In Orsière, Valais, Switzerland
We eat frequently at les Alpes (happily for us we live not too far away!!) and since Sam Destaing took over from M. Joris the restaurant - which was always good - has gone from excellent to superlative. Knowing that the Chasse menu had started we went there last Monday hoping for a lovely meal. Instead we had the best - absolutely the best - Selle de Chevreuil we have ever eaten anywhere. The meat was perfectly and delicately cooked and so tender it melted in the mouth. The plates of food put in front of us - we chose the Marcassin (wild boar) as a starter - were so beautifully presented it was almost a shame to eat them. And the red cabbage that was served with the venison was extraordinary. Now, how can one say that about cabbage?? But it was. Divine in fact.
Because we were driving we could not have a bottle of wine. We took a few décis of one of the open reds - and it turned out to be a perfect choice. A Humagne Rouge. There is a very good selection of open wines and this is appreciated.
We were there on the evening that the new Gault & Millau Guide for Switzerland came out and Sam was promoted to 17 points which puts him well among the top chefs in the country. This is well deserved. It was nice to be able to congratulate him! And, as icing on the cake, so to speak, the lovely and welcoming Maître d'Hôtel, Fabien, has returned to the restaurant after a leave of absence. It was super to see him back.
Since M. Joris retired the restaurant has been totally re-decorated and there were some more "upgrades" this summer. It is visually lovely without loosing any of its "bistrôt du village" feeling. And les Alpes is, right now, the best table in the region without a doubt.
One small correction to the review just before this... the village of Orsières is not "VD" or Vaud. It is "VS" meaning the Valais... There is probably an Orsières in the Canton de Vaud so this is important for those looking it up in the phone book!

Innovative modern menu take on Swiss and European food. Wind expensive but beer better value. Interesting decor with tree trunks in front of mirrors. Plenty of space between dining tables.

This restaurant is a little out of the centre, and you are not going to stumble across it. It is worth checking out. The pizza was excellent and the service just fine. It gets busy at lunch time with locals.

One of the oldest "Café - restaurant" in Martigny Bourg in a very typical surrounding You will find two small and quiet dinning rooms on the first floor.
We visited Cafe National for lunch with friends for a birthday celebration. We chose the set menu of entree, main and dessert. It was great value at 22 Swiss francs. This was a nice surprise considering the cost of eating out in Switzerland.
The food was of excellent quality and the staff were so friendly . The cafe is in the old town area of Martigny which has lots of old charm. I would highly recommend Cage National.

Croque-Nature est une étape incontournable du tour du Mont-Blanc. Niché au coeur d'un petit village typique - Les Arlaches - cette table d'hôte tenue par une accompagnatrice en montagne passionée, constitue pour nous un moment de repos ainsi qu'un plaisir pour le palais - plus particulièrement la croute aux champignon dont rafole notre fille.
Il est également possible d'y dormir... mais nous ne l'avons pas encore testé.
