Love the mussels here so much that it is my major reason for dining here. The chorizo and broth are made for sopping up with a piece of crusty bread...utter delightful after a full morning of skiing! The biggest, and only problem here is the service. Checked in 10 minutes early and saw plenty of open tables but it still took 20 minutes for them to seat our party of 3. One hostess was tied up sitting a group of ten and no one else at the desk could be bothered to seat us, despite several prompts. The waitress disappeared after our food was served and we had to get up and ask for someone to take our desert order. The delicious apple crumble tart made that wait worthwhile but the we had to wait again and flag down someone to get us our check. It's a good thing we weren't too anxious to get back on the slopes. If the service matched the food this would be a 5 star vote for me. The location allows the 10th to get away with this, but it's sad. More

Excellent time! This is a play time great for families. Mickey our host taught us the essentials and provided drinks and appetizers from the lounge. One drink was included. We played a few rounds. The rocks roll on wheels on a painted board and there are no brooms. There is a definite advantage on the downhill side. Still we laughed and had a wonderful time. Highly recommended for groups and families. More

Discover Vail

There's no place for a cozy winter getaway quite like Vail. After a day of skiing, the town's many bistros, lounges and bars offer plenty to do whether you want to wind down or spend the night out with friends. Vail takes much of its culinary influence from other mountain destinations, most notably the Alps, featuring numerous French, Italian and even Swiss restaurants. This town's reputation as a flourishing destination for skiers brings a surprising amount of variety to the area. At the local Japanese and Thai restaurants, you can taste almost every corner of the world. Vail also offers a number of Mexican restaurants for those who want some spicy chile-flavored cuisine to warm up from the cold of the Rocky Mountain slopes.
