Another restaurant in Champoluc that you will need to book in advance as it does get very busy.

Basically this place is a meat restaurant. Steak and various other meat based dishes is what is on offer - grilled over a wood fire, which is their "special" appeal.

Whilst the food I had was tasty and well prepared - it isn't something I haven't had before, and not something you cannot get elsewhere. Combined with a relatively indifferent level of service, it isn't a place that I would rush to go back to. Unfortunately service is slow and average - having to wait an age to have the table cleared and then having to ask for the bill twice - disappointing.

We had a meal here on the staff night off when staying at the Hotel Du Champoluc. This was our second visit and we were not disappointed as the quality of the food was still excellent. We both had steak and they were amazing. Great service, great atmosphere and the prices were not silly either. You do need to book in advance though especially if intending to visit on and Inghams/Ski Total staff night off.

Great local food in Chamoluc- however you smell of food when leaving the place as it is to bad aircondition.
Had some nice local pasta and a great bottle of wine. Lovely place

Had lunch here on our last day. Laid back, professional, cosy and delicious. Really good team and fantastic food. Will definitely revist. Super menu.

You should book the table even in the middle of the week to enjoy Italian flavours, great quality and wonderful service of this traditional Italian restaurant. T-bone is served min 800 gr, so share it with your friends. Every meal was amazing.
