Food Scene

Incredible food and views. One of our favourite places all year round. There is also fresh cheese made here which you can purchase. They do a wonderful soup that is served inside a loaf of bread. Great to cycle or walk here. There is some outdoor play equipment for children.

Panoramic views. Great rosti and a wide menu. Wonderful to walk to in the summer. It is on the edge of the piste down to Veysonnaz. For those who are not ski-ing, it is possible to drive here in the spring and meet friends who are ski-ing if there has not been any recent snow fall. Check the website for opening times before going outside of the winter season.

Amazing cosy Swiss idyll. We love this place. It is great when you want cosy shelter from the weather and its great in the sunshine with its large terrace. The menu is traditional, simple and delicious mountain fare. There are play areas for the children and a crows nest drinking spot with its own mini cable car to carry drinks to the table.

Lovely restaurant on a snowy day. Take shelter here. It's a little tricky to get too (keep far left on the piste past the Thyon apartments and you will see it - its down the toboggan run).

Famous! It's off the beaten track but its a top place for some great food on a big ski day to Verbier. Make sure you leave enough time to get home! Best to turn up early.

This is a wonderful converted cow shed situated on the ski run Les Chottes (it is not where the map marker is but rather look for the ski run 'Les Chottes'. It is a must go restaurant in the winter. It has a wide menu, hot tubs and large sun terraces. It is a very high altitude. In the summer it is usually open everyday July to mid Sept (although sometimes closed for private functions so please check beforehand). It is a wonderful walk from Thyon (can be done in both summer and winter). It takes about 45minutes and is signposted. You can also cycle this (take the chair lift up if you don't want to cycle up the mountain!).

The small collection of cow sheds are on the piste down to Siviez. This has great vibes, deck chairs, and good food. Very nice place to get some spring sunshine.

A wonderful dam and reservoir. You can drive to the top. On the way up there are some lovely BBQ / picnic areas by the mountain stream. A fantastic way to spend a sunny day.
