This mountain restaurant is situated in the hamlet of Les Planards (1930m) and open since 1976. La Marmotte is an institution in Verbier and retains a wonderfully traditional atmosphere. Not the easiest place to access, though this doesn’t impact on its popularity – make sure you book well ahead.

Main course prices range from 19-40chf and options include delicious game, sausages and croutes (try the house version which includes onions, garlic, eggs and ham).

Lifts: just below the bottom of lift 208 Savoleyres Sud (the restaurant isn’t marked on the piste map though is easily spotted by the national flags flying). Pedestrian: no easy access, a hike from Carrefour or a skidoo can be arranged in the evenings (return by sledge!).

Open 11am-11pm.
