A suntrap terrace adds to the appeal of this well located mountain restaurant.
Located in the Torrent ski area near Leukerbad in the Valais alps, this family-run restaurant is a popular mid-ski lunch spot thanks to its glorious sunny terrace looking out over the peaks to the south. The food menu draws on Valais-typical dishes including plenty of dried meats and cheeses and hot dishes such as a half roast chicken with fries and salad. It’s right next to the Torrentalp gondola middle station between Flaschen and Rinderhütte, making it a good stop-off point for skiers and easily accessible from the valley for non-skiers. Or make it the end point of the stunning 1.5 hour walk (open in summer and winter) down from Rinderhütte, which winds along a high mountain trail sporting dramatic views of the southern Valais alps and tiny villages basking in the sunshine. Just watch out for toboggans using the same trail.
