We visited Bar Le National on several occasions during a long weekend away with friends. It is a comfy, clean and welcoming bar great for visitors but there also seemed to be quite a few locals in. The staff speak English which was helpful and welcome considering my french is embarrassing! With pool table, darts, TV, quiz nights and more... More

I spent 3 days in St Jean and most of that time was spent at Bar Le National. It's a fantastic place with a great selection of beers (loads of good Scottish ones, to boot) and really delicious pizzas. They show sport on the big TVs and have a great pool table. I wasn't around for the quiz but apparently... More

An all round great experience. Really friendly staff, lovely atmosphere and without a shadow of a doubt the best pizza in the alps. The porcin pizza is what dreams are made of, go and see for yourself!

Not normally a 'review writer' but got to say how welcome you made us feel at your lovely bar. After a looooong journey it was so nice to slump into a comfy sofa and relax with no feeling of being rushed out or taking up space. Craig the owner could see I was tired and actually brought my beer (a... More

If you're in St Jean d'Aulps & you'd like a hospitable host, I suggest you visit either Bar Mediterranee or Le Bouche & don't waste your money here. I've rated poor rather than terrible because of the excellent bar tender as he doesn't deserve to be tarred by his boss' brush... I popped in with my sons (6 & 9)... More

Hello. First of all thank you for your feedback. I can only apologise for your bad experience. I remember the evening in question. I congratulate Jack on his impeccable (as always) service. It is terribly unfortunate that in the moments prior to this incident some external issues had arisen which I, rather unprofessionally, allowed to affect my generally much better... More

We were in St Jean for a few days and were in here every night. The staff are all super friendly, there's a great atmosphere, good selection of drinks, great rooftop terrace, pool, darts and the pizzas are among the best I've ever had. Give the spicy pizza challenge (featuring the world's hottest chillis) a go if you've got the... More

Great atmosphere during the match, very tasty pizza and kind welcome. I was a bit surprised that everybody around me was speaking english. It was a funny feeling, is a very nice english pub in the midle of the portes du soleil.

We pitched up here after a long drive, tired and hungry. Warm welcome and great news that food was available till 10pm meant we could relax and hubby could have a pint of Guinness (which went down well!). We ordered pizzas from the very cosmopolitan pizza menu (Chinese and Indian themed pizzas as well as what you might usually expect).... More
