A great choice of places to eat on the mountains with more than a dozen options on the local slopes and many more as you head further out in to the 4 Valleys. There are plenty of regular cafeteria style establishments but also good table-service choices too.
The Olympique (+41 (0)27 771 26 15; http://www.restaurantolympique.ch) 2,700m up at Les Attelas has both, as well as a sunny terrace with stylish furnishings to chill out on. Les Ruinettes (+41 (0) 27 771 19 79) is another establishment offering both, with the table service restaurant upstairs and again a good terrace.
Restaurants In Town
There are more than 40 places to eat in Verbier and although the resort has a reputation for being pricy, there are some more affordable pizza and burger options to be had. Try Borsalino for the former (one of several Italian options) and Harold’s cafe for the latter.
Most of the restaurants serve Swiss mountain favourites including fondue, raclette and rostis, but you can also find Japanese, Mexican and even Argentinean options.
At the top of the pack the restaurant in the Relais and Chateaux’s Chalet d’Adrien has a Michelin star and the Montpelier is listed in the Gault Millau gourmet guide. Remember to order a local Valais wine (if you’re not offered one anyway), with your meal.
Verbier has a selection of good local food shops plus several supermarkets. Chaumière (+41 (0)27 771 25 30) is a superb épicerie selling locally produced fine foods and Brunet (+41 (0)27 771 14 55) provides a similar service.
