This place is known for it's dish The Gallows, which is meat that's stuck to a metal rod and then lit on fire and brought to your table to simmer. It comes with a variety of sauces and rice. Pretty good! It's A LOT of food though. We were absolutely stuffed even after one serving and didn't even realize a... More

Classic Swiss food at base of Medran Gondola. Very good options...we went there twice for late lunch it was so yummy. On a sunny day plenty of options facing down the valley. Just across from the W. Staff was very nice and service is very very quick. You are welcome to linger and enjoy the sun and wine if you... More

the food is very good and the service friendly. very nice evening. only thing they will only take reservations at 7 or 9, yet we saw several tables coming in at eight. not sure why they told us that we could not come at eight. when others did. otherwise no complaints, lives up to its reputation.

This restaurant serves very good food but with a total meat bias. So do not visit if vegetarian as you will only find one salad on offer. But the Potence Steak is amazing. Their speciality.

Our first call at the end of a day's skiing. Right by the Medran lift. Good to sit outside in the sun and look over towards the Bruson ski area.

Parts of the restaurant looked quite nice, we were shown to a table that was in the not-so-nice part. The service was OK, perhaps lacking in some charm. The request for a wine recommendation in the 60-80 euros price range was met with a very basic Pomerol /Bordeaux at 88 swissfrancs - not really very imaginative. The food was best... More

Great place with attractive conservative decoration and very helpful staff. Starters were good but the meat dishes are the attraction, and served as "la potence" are fun and plentiful (2 helpings per person). The meat quality was good, well cooked. Only criticism is that as more and more people order this signature dish the smell of cooked meat invades the... More

Joined a party of 19 others for a meal to celebrate a close friends birthday. I had two basic courses two glasses of tolerable Red wine, a large bottle of mineral water and a (Single) glass of very average champagne. My bill came to Swiss 215.00 (Around £170). Everyone had the same and paid the same (Total Swiss F 4,300.00);... More

Nothing special. The food was adequate. We tried the onion soup, steak and rösti complet. The potato cheese dish is our recommendation.
