Folie is in several parts. Posh restaurant at La Fruiterie. Self Service inside, and the BBQ outside. Most just go for the clubbing outside though and the cabaret which is like a dance club up a mountain in the afternoon. Not cheap for drinks, but for one afternoon it's worth it. Great atmosphere .

What a great place for a late (apres ski) lunch accompanied by fantasic live entertainment. Best to soak in the atmoshere with a few beers and/or glasses of wine to accompany a long lunch and skip the hazards of skiing back by returning to Val via the cable car which is handily placed next to the restaurant! Here along with... More

Great place with lots of atmosphere. Great place whether you want lunch or just a hot chocolate to keep you going. Finish at the end of ski day for fantastic apres ski if that's what you are looking for

We love this place. Hugely decadent but it seems that all generations love it. The nun girating to the music might offend a few but even my very Christian daughter saw amusement in it. It is experience but you have to do it at least once. With deep pockets if you go to the Fruitery but remember to reserve a... More

The La Folie Douce is great; you defiantly have to go while in Val D'Isere. The entertainment is fun, the food in general is good, though if getting the burgers (I would recommend) the queue is very long so be prepared to wait. We wait nearly two hours as we were at first told to go away as they were... More

After eating a burger at this place you will never experience such satisfaktion again. The two cooks take time and pride in the gourmet experience of preparing these three different burgers. You must have patiences but trust me it is a experience worth waiting for.

Went for a lunch a Friday afternoon - the sun was out and the atmosphere was booming. Lound music, happy, sunkissed people were dancing around. We had both lunch and drinks @ Folie Douce. The food was ok but the service was slow and rude. We had reserved a table and it took almost half an hour before we were... More

What a vibrant place right on the slopes. Live music & a DJ this place was bouncing daily. Truly worth a visit. Aero acrobatics live singers. A great way to party on the slopes
