I always visit the Sporting when I go to Villars. I love the Fondue Bourguignon made with beef filet, best one I've tried!

Ignoring the expense of Switzerland generally.....we had a great steak meal on the terrace with good Argentinian red. Old waiter looked surly at first glance but impeccable service and food very well cooked. A cut above first impressions of the place.

This was the first restaurant recommended to us and we can see why. It's a combination of Swiss and Italian food at an average price of 50 CHF per person. The view during the day is beautiful, specially sitting outside in the terrace. Great mushroom Risotto and Foi Grass.

Enjoyed an evening meal here watching the sun creep behind the mountains on a splendid May day. Pleasant welcome, attentive service and good food. Would recommend the entrée of goats cheese with honey. Pretty good value and would definitely return.

The Sporting is the place to stop for a coffee in the morning, an apéro before lunch, or a cold beer on a hot summer afternoon. Nice view on the mountains across the valley, relaxed atmosphere, it has the characteristics of a busy brasserie.

I went there twice. Both time, the service and the drinks were great. I tried two types of white wines (Ollon and Johannisberg) and the wines were excellent. I had a fondue, and it was good. However, at the end of it, we noticed that the bottom of the pot was damaged/burnt. This is quiet unealthy. My friend that wanted... More
