For a hotel the food choice and helping size was poor, not to mention the price. We went there with high expectations and wasn't too concerned about price until we saw the menu. The feature dish of various stews came out on a plastic plate...More

Dear Sambre01, we read your review with disappointment and we thought that maybe you were writing about another restaurant but not ours. As you can easily see from other pictures taken by restaurant guests, the plate for various stews (carbonada, sausages and mushrooms) is a...More

Conveniently located at the beginning of the pedestrian zone, we've been here for an aperitif with friends. The bar is in the cellar of a hotel, so no look outside, kind of oppressive atmosphere. It's a pity, the drinks are ok and the wine list...More

We found this restaurant by chance on a Friday evening. Our initial waiter didn't speak much English and it did take quite a while to get a drink, however another waitress spoke good English and was both friendly and helpful. There was also a sommelier...More

En-route to the Mont Blanc tunnel and faced with a big queue we decided to stop off in Courmayeur for a spot of lunch before pressing onwards. Due to the wet weather we took a chance on the nearest nice looking place to where we...More

We were staying in the hotel so we had some misgivings about eating in what might have been the hotel dining room, but this was a separate affair tucked away in the basement and it was lovely. The food was very nice but it was...More

Had a very pleasant meal here. Service friendly and attentive. Translation of menu into english provides some entertainment. I had the deer salad and then cured pig...... nice, local well-presented dishes, washed down with some Val d'Aosta wine. Enjoyed it.
