Argh how I loved this place and wonderful break spot. Always busy but quite good. However, ordering the vegetarian cheese burger was such a surprise. It's a salad cheese roll. nout burger about it. Tedious but what? sell it as a cheese roll as described not as something it is clearly not. Fools. Quite tasty mind and chips were great.

Ok but lacked atmosphere. Queuing system rubbish with no room and service slow. Food was good though and quite an impressive menu. There was not enough seating or tables. There are sun loungers available but again not many.

This is a really good place to stop for a drink and a snack. When the sun is out, it is a real sun trap and there is nothing better than sitting on the deck chairs relaxing for a while. Lots of runs around the restaurant so if others want to keep skiing and catch up after your drink then... More

We stopped for lunch, which is self service and found the prices crazy! Never expected it to be cheap but E52 for 2 x chicken breasts with salad and 2 x waters seemed a bit steep (self service!) Next time, I'll ski a little further to get table service at the same price.

Quick food, clean, easy in and out, nothing cheap, in fact typical of mountain prices, yet who cares your on holiday. When you need a drink it's super fast to use the little glass sided bar, have twice so guess I approved.

Lovely place up on the solaise mountain, smaller than many other places due to its location, which makes it far cosier for lunch or drinks on the mountain Self service meals - cheese burger and chicken and chips (with a lovely pepper sauce) were enjoyed Planning to go back

We were lucky enough to enjoy some wonderful sunny days so the deckchairs were very welcome, as were the sheepskins making them cosy and comfy to boot. Lunch could be a bit of a bun-fight if you hit it at the wrong time, queues were out the door at peak times. Food was ok, the location is brilliant so if... More

Great place - nice friendly staff and excellent choice of food all day. Try the Datcha Grogg (their own creation !). Fur covered seats inside and out, warm, comfortable and good value for money !

Very tasty food, though rather expensive. On a nice day the terrace is superb. Try the tartiflette and the local sausages
