Restaurant Buljes

Local and seasonal, with a modern twist - that's the simple concept at the heart of Restaurant Buljes, a charming timber-clad bistro located along the Gemmi Pass in Leukerbad and reachable only by foot. Hikers can reward their efforts with raclette served on a hot stone, regional game dished up on wooden chopping boards and, depending on the time of year, locally grown asparagus. As an added bonus, the wine is sourced from the surrounding vineyards.

Brasserie des Cheminots

This stunning restaurant - a former railway pub-turned-multi-award-winning gourmet retreat in the holiday resort of Brig Simplon - is often lauded as being the best in town. Dine inside the old-school brasserie or enjoy your meal on the sun-drenched Le Jardin des Cheminots terrace during the summer months. Either way, expect elegantly presented traditional French cuisine and high-rated service that will take you back to a bygone era.

Le Cube Varone

If you are partial to historic foundations spruced up with contemporary flair, don’t miss Le Cube Varone. The property, an ancient winegrower’s cabin (guérite), has been transformed into an outdoor dining space that hangs beneath a pergola amid the grapes of the Bisse de Clavau, a 550-year-old irrigation channel. Winner of the Swiss Heritage Society Award, the restaurant – open Friday to Sunday, from April to October – serves tapas, grilled meats and vegetarian options, along with expertly paired local wines.
