Cantine des Rives

Offering panoramic views of Champéry from the clifftop opposite the village, the Cantine des Rives is one of the region's most popular alpine restaurants.

Winter or summer, visitors will love the delicious cuisine and timeworn patina of this snug alpine chalet. Housed in what was once the barn, the large, welcoming dining room still retains elements of its rustic origins.

Here, you will find the famous Raclette du Valais, melted to gooey deliciousness before a wood fire, or our speciality, the ‘Tzeudron des Rives’.

The Cantine des Rives is located at the end of the iconic Galerie Défago hike (open only in summer), not far from the Tière Via Ferrata.

In summer, the Cantine is served by the charming Dents du Midi tourist train. In winter, the restaurant is the perfect place to stop and warm up on the Les Rives snowshoe hike.
