Crans Montana Mountain Restaurants

There are more than 20 places to eat on the mountains above Crans Montana. These range from small ski-in, ski-out affairs like the Amadeus 2006 (+41 (0)78 655 33 89) that serves a great burger, to numerous traditional Swiss mountain chalets serving up eternal favourites like tartiflette and rosti. Among the many good examples of this are the Cabane de Mattia (+41 (0)78 668 22 73). The Pizzeria Arnouva (+41 (0)78 655 33 88) offers something a little different with its Italian menu. What nearly all the restaurants have in common are sunny terraces on which to soak up the rays and take in the glorious views while you lunch. Marvellous.

Grocery Shops in Crans Montana

Crans Montana has a huge choice of food outlets that equals or betters any other ski resort.

There are five boulangeries to choose from for your daily croissant including the Boulangerie Délicatesse (Rue Centrale 21) which, as its name suggests, doubles as a great deli.
