It's outside town center but easy to access via free bus. The place is charming. They offer 6-8 famous traditional dishes. Great food. Friendly service. We were there twice in a week and will definitely go back when we are in Val d'isere.

Have been coming here for 11 years at least and never dissapoints - it is the family's favourite place. Brasserade or die. We have a back story about the restaurant as sometimes seems spooky and we imagine stories. They have softened over the years with new initiatives such as 'barbe a papa' for the kids but we still stick to... More

Totally recommend. Food beautifully prepared, delicious and reasonably priced. Staff very friendly, with good humour and generous. Loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the view in the sun and having a wonderful meal with our friends.

Had dinner with a large family group. Concept of cooking your own steak at your table just the way you like it was great. It tasted amazing too!

Recommended by our hotel. Small, cozy, traditional mountain restaurant. Excellent value @ 39 euros for three course meal (including traditional mountain specialities, fondue etc...), and as much local wine as you can drink. Excellent food and experience. Booking essential.

Lovely food and setting and well worth a visit. I was with a group of 13 and I ordered the racelette which had to be shared by at least two people which was fine and was very tasty. Lots of interesting meals on the menu and everyone in the group was satisfied with what they had.

For a real French alpine food evening this is the place. Within our party we shared raclette and fondue, cooked our own steaks and tried the snails before finishing off with fresh sorbets and crème brulee. Our waiter was brilliant throughout with suggestions as we ordered and keeping the house wines topped up. Great atmosphere (albeit warm with all the... More

We went for a long lunch with friends as the snow had set in! This place has not changed - amazing value and amazing food. No one left disappointed and every visit to val should include a trip to this restaurant!

We had a lovely evening at L'Arolay - lovely Savoir faire and feel. The service was great, the atmosphere was warm, rustic and inviting, the quality of the food was very good and all for a very reasonable price considering it's location. We would have eaten there more than once if there had been availability. I recommend booking in advance.
