We recently visited this incredible restaurant when visiting friends in Evolene, Switzerland. The manageress and owner Marie Jo came to our table several times, making jokes and most importantly making us feel at home. Her husband who is the chef also came and talked to us and made us feel appreciated and looked after. The food was outstanding and we... More

While traveling with a cousin from Germany we ate in this restaurant twice. The food is excellent and the Swiss wine is great. My cousin is a chef and can somehow sniff out good restaurants by reading the posted menus. But this may have been the best restaurant of the week with him. A local family of seven was having...

Evolene is an unspoilt traditional Swiss village and somewhere we have been going back to on and off for many years. La Paix is an unassuming friendly bar and restaurant whose owners always have a smile and a greeting for you. They have accommodated us on more than one occasion when we have turned up late or without a booking... More

A fondue in a bread cocotte ! I had never heard about that ! And moreover, served by the smiling Marie-Jo or one of the great polenta or meat, prepared by her husband Henri, the authentic atmosphere of that beautiful village of Evolène are some of the highlights of a visit in Val d'Hérens, above Sion, Switzerland.

One can eat well there (although the tap water is at a cost). The bar is also very nice. If you go there for a drink (or after the meal if you still can) try the "pot de chambre" which is a mix of ice cream and white wine from Wallis.

We use to visit this restaurant in family quite often, because we love to visit Evolène and show the village to friends visiting us from the other part of the country. When we go to Evolène with friend or family, we always go eat at "La paix", which is one of the best restaurant in Evolène. The place is nice,... More
