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 stable, the large, welcoming dining room still retains the pleasantly simple ambiance of its rustic origins.

Here, you will find the famous Valaisan Raclette, cooked before a wood fire, and the delicious 'Tzeudron des Rives'.

The Cantine des Rives is located at the trail end of the iconic Galerie Défago hike (open only in summer), and on the road home from the Tière Via Ferrata. In summer, the Cantine is also 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.
