Here are my favourites:
Zermatt: “Chez Vrony” amazing quality and environment for the ones without financial issues (8 Euros per bottle of water).
Cortina d’ Ampezzo/Sella Ronda: “Rifugio Scotoni” Great mountain refuge half-way down the world’s most amazing piste (Hidden Valley). BBQ in the middle of a frozen Heaven.
Saalbach: “Hecherhutte” a great traditional mountain hut half-way down the least popular but most picturesque ski piste (it ends up in Viehhofen on the road to Saalbach and you need to take the bus to the village).
Lech: Can’t remember the name of the restaurant, but it is easy to find. Just ask for the restaurant in nearby village Zugg which has a sleigh-train. A snowcat which pulls 4 or 5 sleigh-wagons picks you up from a dead end road and takes you through the forest to the village of Zugg to this medieval country house in the forest with tiny dark rooms and even private rooms for the large tables.
Selva/Ortisei/Alpe di Suisi: “Albergo Dialer” The food is traditional and served in big frying pans, but this is not the main issue. You are driven from your hotel to a dead-end location where you are picked up by a snowcat that drives you to the peak of Alpe di Suisi to this hotel/restaurant. After the great dinner (if you want) you are given a head-flashlight and a sleigh and you and your gang slide down the mountain in the middle of the night with the assistance of an experienced guide. I had never been on a sleigh before and the same applied for my mates (guys & girls). At the start it was a little scarry but then adrenalin kicked in and we zoomed down at unbelievable speeds without falling even once. Better than sex I must say.
Val d’ Isere: “La Casserole” I don’t think this restaurant exists anymore. Back in 1996 when I visited the resort I was amazed by this restaurant. It was in an ancient barn just outside the village and the atmosphere in there was breathtaking. The ceiling was hardly 1,9m tall, everything was made from 300 year-old wood, the staircase was the steepest I have ever seen, almost scarry, and the decor took you back some 300 years. They served the best meat Vondue that I have ever had with unlimited baked potatoes. A real experience.
That’s all folks.
