Nobody should pass Vals les Bains without stopping to Beatrix to enjoy one of their enormous and delicious ice cream. Very nice terrace and the inside of the building is nice too. Make sure to be very hungry before selecting one of their 'Géant' ice cream, like a coupe Cévénole ! One negative thing.... staff doesn't smile much and are... More

Very popular ice cream parlour with large terrace, amazing flavours made on the premises with interesting combinations. Good people watching. 8 euros for a great sundae.

Beatrix actually is two establishments located across the Rue de Paul Ribeyre from each other. Visit the riverside cafe in the morning for crepes, and then venture to the opposite side for ice cream or beer in the afternoon.

Beatrix had really tasty sorbets, the pear, raspberry, and passionfruit/mango were wonderful. They also had cool flavors I had never heard of, such as Lucuma a Peruvian tree fruit that was AWESOME as ice cream.

Found this on TripAdvisor so we gave it a try for my birthday meal. Quirky and unusual, it was different from the many indifferent restaurants in the Ardeche region. Outside seating by the river was a delight. Beatrix's speciality is ice cream and they cropped up even in the savoury dishes - avocado ice cream for example or tomato sorbet.... More

Charmiong outdoor terrace hanging over the river, English menu, great service, fair prices, great food - what else is there? We will go back for dinner - told we need to reserve for that and probably lunch also if you want to sit by the railing with the best view.
