We had a great lunch here on our second day when it was . . . raining (who ordered that in July?!) Lovely local Savoie food at a reasonable price. Friendly staff and soon got busy.

It's outside town center but easy to access via free bus. The place is charming. They offer 6-8 famous traditional dishes. Great food. Friendly service. We were there twice in a week and will definitely go back when we are in Val d'isere.

Totally recommend. Food beautifully prepared, delicious and reasonably priced. Staff very friendly, with good humour and generous. Loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the view in the sun and having a wonderful meal with our friends.

Had dinner with a large family group. Concept of cooking your own steak at your table just the way you like it was great. It tasted amazing too!

Recommended by our hotel. Small, cozy, traditional mountain restaurant. Excellent value @ 39 euros for three course meal (including traditional mountain specialities, fondue etc...), and as much local wine as you can drink. Excellent food and experience. Booking essential.

Lovely food and setting and well worth a visit. I was with a group of 13 and I ordered the racelette which had to be shared by at least two people which was fine and was very tasty. Lots of interesting meals on the menu...More

We went for a long lunch with friends as the snow had set in! This place has not changed - amazing value and amazing food. No one left disappointed and every visit to val should include a trip to this restaurant!
