The place is nice but it is rather expensive for what it is. Moreover you need to fight to get served your raclette without limit.

The food was very good (we had polenta with cheese, ham and potatoes) but this is mostly a review for Raymonde. At the end of a good day hike to Pic D'Artsinol we end up in Evolene after the last bus for Les Hauderes where we had our room. When Raymonde learned that we need a ride, she made sure... More

I stopped here with a group of hikers for lunch- and was lucky enough to be seated on the sunny terrace with a magnificent view of the mountains and ancient tile roofs. Prominently located at the entry to the restaurant is a hearth with raclette melting by the fire, so I was tempted and ordered the raclette. I got a... More

The best of authenticity. Very good meat and raclette offer. Beside an excellent meat or cheese treat, here, you get a hint of what local life really may be. Tough mountain conditions forged unique people. Chez Raymond you get a hint of the local approach to life. I also enjoyed to see that many young local Evolenards go to this... More

Lovely woodfire smell when you walk in- busy staff so slightly dismissive-the shocker was the 11.- CHF bottle of water. More expensive than Verbier.

The place is very typically decorated and you can eat all sort of cheese meals or meat of the region (Val d'Herens cows) and cold meat plates.

We have had good time there. Good food too. All of my friends are happy. But yes, the owner seems a bit serious, not very expressive in the gesture, almost "no smile" :) Other than that, I MUST appreciate her service anyway. She and her team still serve us even though we arrive very late for lunch (almost 3pm)!

The reputation does not need to be made. Thanks to TV advertising nobody who knows Evolène can ignore this place. However it remains authentic and Raymonde remains as friendly as it use to be. Go there for a wood oven raclette, go there for a wood oven grilled meat or go there for a "raison à la lie" (raisin with... More

Food was akin to good home cooking rather than posh dining. I good salad followed by a huge rossti with a whole goats cheese and bacon as a main course which was just perfect after hard days climbing. Not enough room for a pudding! Colleague of mine had the vegetarian ravioli, which could have done with a sauce, but was... More

Here's the deal. Raymonde is apparently a local celebrity. She's been on national TV and her raclette is supposed to be extraordinary. So we booked a table with high expectations. First, the one good thing. The raclette is actually pretty good. Although I doubt it's better than any other restaurant in town. So, there, I said it. I enjoyed the... More
