Take advantage of the crisp weather and incredible views from the sun terraces of these Alpine restaurants and cafes this winter. Food ranges from traditional to avant garde while the vistas are all Michelin-star standard.
After spending a morning in the snow working up an appetite, there are few better places to end up for lunch than this mountain restaurant. Perched at 1,792m on the south-facing side of the Grindelwald valley, its sun-trap of a terrace overlooks the vast Eiger mountain on the opposite side.
This rustic farmhouse-style hotel restaurant occupies an idyllic spot by Lac des Chavonnes, a short hike or ski from the Bretaye mountain rail station above Villars-sur-Ollon. In winter it’s a short, flat skate from the bottom of the Chavonnes chair lift.
