This 230 seater restaurant is divided into three cosy rooms. Expect typical mountain fodder here at reasonable prices – for Switzerland. The classic fondue, home-made fruit cake and the apple tart are definitely worth stopping for. There’s also a huge south facing terrace with a further 200 seats, the perfect place for a quick pit stop and a bit of people watching. Located at 2000m, access to the Hôtel-Restaurant du Lac is through a cogwheel train from Villars-sur-Ollon.
