Dining at The Lodge
The food served at The Lodge is one of the highlights of your stay, and we serve a mix of Swiss and international cuisine. Dining can be as formal or informal as you wish, from full four-course gourmet meals to healthy meals with the children.
Meals can be themed, traditional or a mix! Ask us for some ideas or give us yours. We also stock a great range of international wines, top quality spirits, international beers and excellent house champagne. All meals at The Lodge are served communally around a shared table, but it is possible to organise private dinners in some rooms on request.
All guests are encouraged to treat The Lodge like their own home and are welcome to help themselves to drinks at any time. The team can cater for all dietary requirements and is happy to make adjustments or substitutions to the day’s menu according to your tastes and preferences.
Breakfast is generally served from about 7.30 in the morning and in winter the lifts open at 8.45am, which should give you enough time to get kitted out for your day on the mountain. You can have it a little earlier if you like, and if you’ve got a very early start (for example if you’re leaving us), we’ll organise a breakfast pack to take with you.
There will be a continental breakfast buffet including fruits, cereals, pastries, yoghurts, and more, as well as a full selection of cooked breakfast items from our à la carte menu. If there’s something you’d like that’s not on the menu just let us know.
Each day in winter we will book a table for lunch somewhere on the slopes, with each guest responsible for paying for his or her own meal. If you make it back to The Lodge for lunch, or if you choose to stay behind during the day, a light lunch will be served (included in the rates). If you know you’ll be back at The Lodge for lunch do try and let us know the day before.
In summer lunches will vary depending on the day’s activities. Some excursions we organise include lunch, but if you choose to go exploring on your own you may want to take care of lunch yourself. If you get back to The Lodge by lunchtime, however, we’ll serve lunch either inside or on the terrace.
In the winter season once the lifts stopping running it’s time to head back to The Lodge for a relaxing spa treatment, a session in the hot tub and steam room, and definitely a slice (or two) of homemade cakes with some mulled wine – well deserved after an active day on the mountain.
In the summer season we serve freshly baked cookies around 3pm accompanied by jug of something refreshing.
Evenings at The Lodge typically start with some delicious canapés and an apéritif of your choice before moving on to the main event. Each morning our chefs will share a menu for that evening and invite guests to let us know if there’s anything on there that doesn’t take their fancy. If you’re celebrating a special occasion or just have a particular craving for something we’ll do our best to wow you and those you’re travelling with.
Here's a sample menu from a recent summer's evening:
Starter: Escabeche of summer vegetables with fresh herbs & whipped goat’s cheese
Main Course: Roast fillet of salmon with pea & potato croquettes, creamed leeks, confit tomatoes & salsa verde
Vegetarian Main Course: Homemade Parpadelle pasta with truffle & basil pesto, peas & shaved Pecorino cheese
Dessert: Chilled coconut rice pudding with compressed pineapple, passionfruit sorbet & lemon verbena
We have a great range of child-friendly menus. Your Lodge Rangers (that’s the children) can choose from a selection of tasty, well balanced, healthy and fun meals keeping both the parents and the Rangers happy! The Lodge does not operate a set children’s programme but has a range of activities available on request that can be tailored to suit your child. Our staff is happy to help organise activities, but as we are a small team we are unable to watch over children. Parental supervision is therefore required for all suggested activities.
Dining in Summer
In summer meals are served communally, giving you a chance to share what you’ve been up to during the day with other guests. Our rates include breakfast, light lunch and dinner as well as all drinks (including alcohol).
Lunches will vary depending on the day’s activities. Some excursions we organise include lunch, but if you choose to go exploring on your own you may want to take care of lunch yourself. If you get back to The Lodge by lunchtime, however, we’ll organise lunch either inside or on the terrace.
You can dine al fresco whilst enjoying the fresh mountain air on the terrace where there is a BBQ and bar area. We’re happy to arrange private dinners for a special occasion of course – just ask us about which rooms would work best for this.
Dining in Winter
There’s no better way to enjoy a meal than to gather around our large dining table for some good food and good company. All food at The Lodge is cooked to order, and when the chalet is hired on an exclusive-use basis, we’ll plans the meals around your wishes.
In winter our rates include all drinks, breakfast and afternoon tea, as well as dinner on all but one night during the week, when you’ll be able to sample the best of Verbier’s culinary delights. Each day we will book a table for lunch somewhere on the slopes, with each guest responsible for paying for his or her own meal. If you make it back to The Lodge for lunch, or if you choose to stay behind during the day, a light lunch will be served.
While you’re in Verbier you’ll be able to experience one of the town’s many quality restaurants on one night during your stay. We can arrange table reservations for you including at restaurants up on the mountain. Verbier town boasts all sorts of restaurants – over 40 at last count – ranging from the simple to the stylish.
Look out for the Toblerone in your room during turn down!
