Skied past this restaurant a couple of days before when it was cloudy and thought it would be great on a blue sky day. Yesterday was that day. We didn't have a reservation but they found us a table on the terrace which was lovely. Service from start to finish very good and prompt. The food was first class and... More

Our first time in Val and the food on the mountain was a big let down, apart from this place. Good food, friendly service and reasonable prices. The views from the terrace are great as well, though we sat inside, which was also fine...

It is a very nice old alpage along the slope down from Le Fournet to Val d'Isère where very kind people serve a very well prepared testy food: a lot of dishes with a big variation of foie gras arrangement, nice wine and good deserts. You have to reserve to be on the terrasse, but being inside is very fine.... More

Introduced to this restaurant this year by a friend. We have skied in the area for 15 years and never discovered it. It was helped by a beautiful day, but the view and setting is fantastic. 12 of us sat on the terrace enjoying variety of dishes from salads gourmand to macaroni with fois gras and cepes. Very generous portions... More

Went here as a group of 12 for lunch on our chalet host day off. The food was fantastic. Every person in our party loved what they ordered. The lobster ravioli was a particular hit. Both the red and white wines we had were delicious and the service super friendly. The only downside to eating here is the only way... More

Eat here every year we come to Tignes/Val d'isere . They have recently upgraded the indoor dining area with a fabulous conservatory type room. Beautiful big windows and views. Booking ahead a must. Also noticed a new sitting area outside which we haven't tried yet. Food and service excellent. Vegetarians catered for with fabulous wok of stir fried veg etc... More

We ski'd to this restaurant after hearing positive reviews from other chalet guests. While not cheap, it does offer value for money when the location and service are taken into consideration. It is especially enjoyable on a warm sunny day, however, it is wise to book in advance if you wish to sit outside! This is definitely one of the... More

On the piste to Le Fornet not too far from the cable car. This restaurant is gorgeous, regardless if you are sitting indoors or outside. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the menu pretty wide ranging, from lamb carré to ravioli filled with lobster meat. This place is probably as good as it gets on the piste around Val... More

We had planned to have lunch here so called in for a mid morning drink and booked a table. Glad we did as although the place is quite large it was definitely necessary to book as it was full at lunch time (poor weather day so no outside eating going on). Despite being full the service was very fast and... More

The snack bar menu was quite limited but the atmosphere was great. Alexandre really looked after us and the live music was excellent. We went back there almost every day.
