The Restaurant

Whilst the hotel does not include a separate restaurant, two of its bars offer some fantastic food options. Their menus have been designed so that much of what is on offer suits those with gluten and dairy allergies, whilst not compromising on flavour, texture or appearance. The menu is something everyone can share and enjoy together regardless of their dietary needs. You can look forward to:

  • Tapas at The Lounge: A wide selection of small plates and sharing platters to enjoy with friends and family, served from 17:00 to 22:00 every day.
  • Brunch: When it comes to the weekend, cornflakes don’t always cut it, but their breakfast Burrito does! Every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday their brunch is a must, with a classic breakfast menu and the perfect Bloody Mary! Served from 11:00 to 15:00.
  • South: Forget the fancy. Feel-good favourites are what they are all about down south. Their chefs have created a roster of reinvented classics to satisfy the biggest of game-day appetites, including burgers, ribs, fish & chips or mac & cheese.

The Valais is famous for some excellent produce and therefore they try to source their ingredients locally where possible. Many of their cheeses come from Verbier’s very own Laiterie and their meats from their local butcher, Georgy Maret in Le Chable.

You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here.  Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end.

Reviews

  • "Rooms are great for a ski hotel, really comfortable bed, good shower and free-bees, fluffy towels. Flat screen TV and free champagne all make for a great impression. All the staff are a credit to the hotel they were genuinely friendly and eager to help, all gave good advice." - Trip Advisor
  • "Fab weekend with friends in this brilliantly located, friendly and cool hotel. We were lucky and got upgraded to one of the new suites, never had so much space in a skiing hotel, even managed to host our own little party with the free champagne and no trouble with noise at all. Bath in corner of room and open plan shower may not suit all travelling companions! Staff were really friendly and I loved being chauffeured to and from the lifts and the local apres bar. Breakfast was delicious, plentiful and including lovely fresh fruit to cut through all that swiss cheese. The main feature of the hotel is undoubtedly the bar area. There is the cool, relaxed lounge bar, great for a chilled out cocktail, trendy DJs and gorgeous food, or the slightly crazy Apres bar - dancing on the bar, totally packed, great band, lots of beer. Enjoy it but leave your shower until after! We'll definitely return to Le Farinet." - Trip Advisor
  • "My 4th visit back to the Farinet with friends and we totally loved what the new owners had done to the place, both the glamorous refurbishment and the amazing new staff. Their energy, creativity and attention to detail have really turned this into a 5 star experience. We were very generously upgraded by Scotty the new manager to one of the stunning new master suites and new touches like complimentary champagne in the rooms on arrival, the super helpful Harry driving us to & from the ski lifts each day and the lovely sunny new breakfast room upstairs really enhanced the experience this year." - Trip Advisor
  • "We spent 5 nights at the Farinet just before Christmas. We are a family of 5 with three older teenage kids who love to ski and of course, to party. The Farinet did not disappoint on any level, and in many ways surpassed all our expectations. I have stayed here several times before and thought I knew what to expect from this famous Verbier venue. However under new ownership it has altogether moved to a new level. The staff in particular deserve a special mention. Despite being at the end of a lengthy and extensive renovation process, every member of the team were incredibly courteous, professional and helpful in every way. Every one of us were made to feel like we really were special guests, and that nothing was too much trouble.There are fabulous touches appearing everywhere, to please all tastes, from the lovely wooden , traditional games sets in the lounge, to the incredible LED colour changing bars in both the apres- ski, and lounge bar, and the lovely contemporary wooden panelling . However for those, like myself, who enjoy it for its party ethos, none of this has been lost in any way. The atmosphere in both bars has been retained and even extended in its individual and unique character.In addition there is a new chef who creates stylish and contemporary tapas type food. My daughter said it was the best food she has ever eaten in a ski resort. There was also delicious home made cake and hot beverages served in the afternoon.I believe a large amount of money has been spent on sound proofing the rooms, and we were barely able to notice the noise from the bar downstairs.The only noise that disturbed me was from the revellers in the street one night when I had accidentally left the window open. After all, it must be remembered that this is a party venue right in the centre of Verbier, and perhaps if you really don't like any noise at all, this is not the place for you. Finally, we were given a chance to see the newly refurbished bedrooms. These are spectacular, with state of the art bathrooms and beautiful contemporary design. I believe that all the rooms will be completed over the next few months. Thank you once again to Scotty, the general manager, to Naomi, to harry our driver, and all the other fabulous staff. We are already planning to return as soon as we can sort some dates out." - Trip Advisor
