This is a classic Swiss mountain restaurant with great food and an excellent wine list including rare Valais wines. But if you can take the sledge ride down after dinner. It's deeply memorable.

This is the best place I have found so far on the mountains above Verbier. The menu is simple but good and the ambience of their place is excellent. On top of that the staff are helpful and efficient - so that's pretty much what you want in the middle of a day's skiing!

We were lucky that due to snowing the place was half empty compared to its usual buzz. Great rosti and cheese fondue. Good service. All together a great place we return often.

I have been to this restaurant every year for the past 20yrs and I still love it. Aimée and Lara are taking over from their father and they're keeping the charm of this place intact (as opposed to what happened to Chez Dany, which is clearly not chez Dany anymore) The food is delicious, the view is great, the old...

In addition to an amazing view, you will be greated by Aimee or Lara who are doing an amazing job. Great service but suggest you reserve in advance as it is full on most sunny days. Do try the famous salade Marmotte which sauce is the most amazing you will have tasted. Many tried to spy on the ingredients of... More

The guy serving on the terrace was very unfriendly when telling us that we had to wait 1 hour to be served. Service in many restaurants in Verbier is becoming worse and worse every year, and their prices are rising...

A lovely summer's walk to get there, a warm welcome from the staff, fantastic views and lovely food. Even a play ground for the children.

We'd eaten at La Marmotte on and off 20 years ago and were now recapturing a moment with friends by booking a table for 14 on a Sunday evening. There was only 1 waiter but you'd never have known - he was always there when we needed him... and we did have almost exclusive use of the restaurant. Rostis were... More

I have been going to this restaurant for twenty years as the food and location are good, however on our recent visit we were made to wait 75minutes for our food! We were the second people to arrive and placed our order immediately as we had young children with us. It was a special family occassion which was ruined by... More

Had an excellent lunch here. There is a wide choice of good local food. Portions are large particularly the salads! The rostis and croutes are some of the best around. Whilst outside is the place to be on a good day inside has a lot of character. For kids there are swings and a climbing wall. One point to note... More
