Good everyday staples like soup, croque, tart du jour, Excellent cakes and patisserie. Breakfast very good and the coffee (in a town that does not do coffee well) is very good.

After a long day travelling from London, we stopped here for a late lunch: a deliciously simple croque monsieur and a glass of Pinot Noir. It was a brilliant introduction to Val d'Isere - in addition to the lovely food, the staff were super friendly...More
