Hard to decide whether the views or the super attentive staff are the best thing about this restaurant. Make the effort with the hike, you will not regret it even if it’s only for a cake and some hot chocolate.

A little tricky to find with ski boots on but there is a sign to look for. Just past Chez Vrony and definitely worth the 50 m walk. Can be a little slippery on the hilly walk back up after a fine glass of wine....More

Yes definitely as it’s primarily for the ski season. You can choose to eat either outdoors or indoors although in practice decision likely to be dictated by the prevailing weather !
