La Streif

Reviewed By travellingsloths

If you live in the area, you must stop by for a drink or plan a raclette with some friends. I highly recommend this place if you are visiting the area for it's authenticity.It's a caveau-style and not to big so it feels really homely and warm. The service is great and the planchette are very good quality meats. It's a bar a raclette, so it does not have additional menu offerings: just excellent swiss raclette.The wine selection is excellent: really nice local wines are served.

La Vache Qui Vole

It is a cozy place, generous menu selection, and tasty food. However, we didn't feel special in any way. It is a standard restaurant, and wouldn't mind to try something else next time around Martigny for lunch before coming back.

Steak House Martigny

Reviewed By Zerosixzero

The kitsch-American style adds to, rather than detracts from the dining experience here. It's airy, light, modern and friendly. Most importantly, the meat here is exceptionally good (recommend the hot stone beef filet infused with rosemary), so while the ambience remains casual, they do pay serious attention to their cooking, and this would be a definite "come-back-to" place in the future. Prices are Swiss standard for meat - high! but not outrageous.

Small restaurant with an excellent traditional local cuisine. Meat (local beef) with vegetables and hot and cold cheese plates- Very pleasant no thrill athmosphere and good service. Downside : the prices as items are priced separately the total comes to a fairly high total.

Le Caveau du Moulin Semblanet

Reviewed By Chris77CH

After a first disappointing try last year (not enough chestnuts and unclear how much were included, staff way to busy to pay enough attention), we decided to give another try to their "brisolée"... And we were very pleased this time.The local cheese platter was delicious and included several types of fruits as well, the waitress came many times to check whether we wished more chestnuts or drinks, so we had plenty. Dessert was good but not very elaborate.The place itself is quite nice with several different rooms and atmospheres, all pretty cosy.It would be great to have the cheese names on the platter directly: even though it's nice to have the manager come to the tables to greet us and give the names, we couldn't recall any of them after she left the table anyway...!Also the first chestnuts weren't hot enough when we received them, but they were better at the end of our meal.Cher Client Merci du ❤ c'est très sympathique de vous lire. Ça donne le pep et la bonne humeur.Superbes fêtes de fin d'année remplie de belles surprises.Au plaisir.Salutations de toute l'équipe du Moulin Semblanet

Reviewed By Hambagahle

Sunday lunch with friends and the restaurant was full. Nice table in the back room and a quieter area than the main dining room so very nice. We all had asparagus - with Hollandaise for 3 of us and Jambon cru for me. Very seasonal. Main course was rack of lamb, slightly over cooked for my taste but tender. (We weren’t asked how we liked it...)The gratin was “to die for” - seriously good!! Their lamb is from a family farm in Bourg St Pierre apparently. Nice selection of desserts. We had some good local wines - Florian Besse.Service was a bit slow but that was understandable... however the young lady who served us needs a lesson in customer relations! When asked where our desserts were - by then the restaurant was 3/4 empty - she replied “I don’t make the desserts - that is the kitchen’s job!! “. She could simply have said she would check...Definitely a place to return to especially in summer for their lovely garden.The restaurant is very close to the Fondation Gianadda so perfect if one is going there.Hello, Thank your for your "avis"I will take some more time for my "apprentie" as a waitresse how to speak with our clients, she will learn it ;). Thank your for your honesty and we wish you a good easter.Yours sinceleryClaudia Tornare

Les Touristes

Reviewed By richarddales

Four of us stopped off in Martigny after a day out and decided to try Restaurant 'Les Touristes' on speck.Nelson the restaurant owner was only too happy to seat us without booking and after some delicious rose wine we had a most splendid and sophisticated meal. It is not often I wax lyrical about soup but the tomato soup starter was sensational, creamy with a basil dressing, we all adored it. Afterward we had Canette (duck), bass with coquille sause, Valaisanne pork cooked two ways, and beef ravioli; every dish was outstanding. We did not manage to get to the deserts but I would bet they were good also.Don't miss this place if you are in the area, it has only been open 6 months but I would not be surprised if it eventually got interest from the Michelin man.

Les Trois Couronnes

Reviewed By physbiz

One of the advantages of visiting Switzerland is that you can enjoy French and Italian cuisine without leaving the country. We arrived without a reservation and were offered an outside table along with others who appeared to be regular customers. Our waitress didn't speak much English, which was a good sign. The food was simply marvelous, especially the escargot and the risotto.

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.
