From looking at the exterior and interior, we were really looking forward to our meal at il Balivo. It turned out to be a disappointment when we got the food that we ordered. Despite the mixed grill looked great, the meat was over cooked and tasteless. The duck was quite moist and well cooked but the dish itself wasn't well... More

We had a 4-course dinner (which was a bit over the top) at this cozy restaurant. Both the food and the wine selection were exquisite!

We came twice in one week and as this was the number one we had expectations. We were not disappointed. Make a reservation and be sure to also save some space for dessert. The Pistachio Creme brulée was among the best desserts I have had.

This a very attractive resto, very popular (booking essential)with excellent cooking and good service. We ate here twice during a 6 night stay in Champoluc, despite numerous alternatives. The building looks quite new, built in a traditional style, of stone with lots of wood inside. the kitchen, including a large wood fired grill, is open; always good to see a... More

Visited here recently with 5 friends. Having booked the restaurant on the basis of its place as the No1 restaurant in Champoluc we were certainly looking forward to the evening. We visited 6 restaurants during our stay and this turned out to be the most disappointing of them all. Was the food good? Yes it was. The steak was very... More

As the hotel staff have a day off we had to look for a restaurant for our evening meal. This restaurant is heading out of the village heading in the direction of the spa. We noticed this lovely looking building and discovered it was a restaurant. The service and food were both excellent with an open kitchen to see being... More

We ate here last Wednesday & because most chalets have the night off it was very busy, good job we booked. The decor is simple & very welcoming. White table cloths, lovely wine & water glasses. The service was very friendly & informative. If you don't speak Italian the wine waitress can speak English. The choice of food is a... More

In three years we were lucky once in finding a table in this very nice little restaurant. The food was great and so was the service. Need to reserve way ahead if you want to try!
