The menu is pretty limited. Fondue, raclette, braserade & a few others. But the food was excellent, the staff attentive, service was speedy, & lovely ambience. Would be very happy to go again.

We had dinner here twice and both times it was good. They serve mainly specialties from the mountain being pierade, raclette, brasserade, reblouchon. And they served a 2009 bordeaux superieur wich was excellent.

I went here with a large group and we had a great time. Service wasn't great but the food was nice. Pizza with a large range and a good atmosphere inside

Nothing particularly unusual on the menu, but the "pierrard" or hot rock option was a good one. Simple fare - plenty of cut up raw beef and duck with some bottled sauces and a truly green salad (lettuce only) and chips (not gluten free). Wine list very limited but some acceptable options.

On a skiing holiday with the lads we thought we would try some local cuisine. The food was excellent the wine was even better and the price was very reasonable. Also catered for a large group and were not put off by such a large group of lads. A must go!

Really nice views but the food is not that great. The stone cooked meat I found to not be very interesting to eat.

This was one of the most honest services I 've ever had in France. The food was delicious, the ambiance was cosy and most importantly the man (maybe the owner/chef) who served us was a real professional! We could feel his passion for everything he does and it absolutely convinced us because the taste of his recommendations was excellent!

Thank 2012Ingaga
