When roaming the mountains of Central Europe a fortunate traveler may find a little family restaurant tucked away in the most unexpected places. The families that run these alpine oases are known far and wide for their hospitality. They will invite you in from the crisp mountain air to warm yourself at their fireplace, relax with a refreshing beverage and enjoy the fine food at their table. This tradition of hospitality inspired Miklos and Maggie when they opened Vali’s Alpine Restaurant almost forty years ago.
Vali’s Alpine Restaurant offers family style dining with a view of the Wallowa mountains. An easy walk from lodging and camping at Wallowa lake or a short drive from Joseph Oregon, Vali’s has been welcoming guests to our table for almost forty years. Every dish at Vali’s is prepared according to our family recipes and served with Maggie’s legendary hospitality.
Dining with us has become a tradition for many of our guests, so be sure to get reservations! Whether you are looking for an inviting meal after a hike in the Wallowa Mountains, fishing on the Snake River, or a day of fun in Hell’s Canyon, please let us make you feel at home. In our kitchen we prepare a rotating menu of traditional and classic dishes, one each day except for when we are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. We offer a variety of cocktails as well as a selection of wine and beer. Our desserts are always made in house and are sure to be a treat.
Our deli case features European style cold-cuts, meats and other treats available for your enjoyment.
On Saturday and Sunday mornings we offer homemade donuts and pastries. Please be sure to call ahead if you have a big order. They sell out quickly!
