We two couples reserved a table for lunch on a rather wet and misty Saturday. Because of the weather three of us arrived early and had to wait for our companion to finish her ski lesson but this didn't faze the waitress. After aperitifs we asked for the plat du jour, advertised as available from Monday to Sunday, only to... More

Very professional, pleasant and customer oriented attitude of the manager and her staff. Good food of which we particularly loved the soup of the day and the delicious blueberry pie (=to enjoy between two down hill slopes). Even during rush hours, the place is kept in a very clean state. Waiters are constantly on the look out to remove trays... More

We came as a group again today to the terrace restaurant at Bretaye. They promptly arranged a large table in the best location even though we didn't have a reservation. The lunch was very good and the service much improved from previous occasions. Highly recommended though it would be nice if they reintroduced the BBQ ribs they used to have!

This place has a Self Service section and a waiter/waitress served section. This review is for the Self Service section; there's a good choice of food on offer of which we sampled pasta, pizza and sandwiches over a few visits. The food is good lunch material, nothing special, but fine for a mid-ski lunch. There's plenty of indoor and outdoor... More

We had a large family lunch recently on the upper terrace of this restaurant to which we have been going every year for some 15 years. The service was helpful, but a little lacking as the kitchen didn't seem to deliver what the waitrice ordered! She was very willing but obviously embarrassed and needs more experience. The dishes were good,... More

The views from this location are spectacular, the service was generally good. We ordered the pumpkin coconut curry soup and Veal Sausages with Fries. The meals arrived quickly. The pumpkin soup was very good, but the fries looked like they may have been sitting for a while before being served and sausages were only just warm. Overall a good place... More
