Very very good food, hot, fresh and well presented. Well worth a stop and check in. Random bar service of paying at one end and collecting at the other, akin to the garage that can’t serve coffee and petrol together! Which is so un-customer friendly....More

We came for dinner and went up with the Snow-cat, which is a whole experience by itself. The food is authentic mountain food, so don't expect light dinner. The quality is quite good.

The Chesal 1805 Bar and Restaurant is located on the pistes of Melezet, in Bardonecchia, a beautiful village in the upper Val di Susa and is a popular tourist destination in both winter and summer. It is in the heart of the Melezet ski area, situated at the top of the chairlift and is only a short distance from the Snowpark, completely renovated and extended, Chesal 1805 is the ideal place to stop by and enjoy a break from skiing, for some relaxation in the sun or for some entertainment for children. Originaly the departure station for the Selletta ski lift, today the Chesal restaurant is completely renewed, expanded and re-modernised. Along with the bar and the self-service an "a la carte" restaurant has also been added where you will find beautifully finished trims, large windows framing the Guglia Rossa and the Valle Stretta and terraces on which you can soak up the sun, perhaps after a descent on the pistes. The perfect place to satisfy the needs of those who are looking for a quick but flavourful snack at the bar, or for lunch at the self service or the restaurant, combining traditional cuisine from Val di Susa with innovative and appetizing recipes. The interior has been decorated with wood features that recreate the atmosphere of an exclusive mountain chalet with prestige details and opens onto a wall with large windows that offer stunning views of the area. The entrance has been set-up with a chill out area for relaxing informally just off the pistes. The whole building is equipped with free Wi-Fi, there is a mobile phone charging area and a larges games area, where both adults and children can have fun with the different games that are available. We are waiting for you; for lunch, a pleasant break, a romantic dinner or a special event, we will be happy to welcome you into a warm and exclusive ambience and delight you with typical dishes from out mountain.
