4 of us went for dinner and we all happened to order the same main course! None of us were in any way disappointed. We all ordered the Braised Deer and it was delicious. Full of flavour and soft and tender. Would highly recommend.

Went here with 3 friends, 2 of us shared the cheese fondue and the others shared the meat fondue. The staff were amazing, very attentive and the food came out quickly and was very good. They also offered to bring out more salad/chips/meat/cheese. Would highly recommend and it's not too expensive. We went on a Wednesday and didn't book.

Lovely setting and ambience. Packed on both days we went. Food was great with layers and layers of flavour. Price was very reasonable for that quality. Easy to find and service was good. My veal was just so juicy and tender. The potato gratin was also excellent. House wine was very drinkable. Really want to try their fondue next time.... More

We followed the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. This is a quaint, old building that serves up great food. Snails with cheese, a Chines influenced beef cheek dish. Venison. Others were enjoying raclette. Good wine list. Good service. We tried to book again but they were full.

Walk into a warm, cosy, rustic atmosphere which you just know is going to be great ! Attentive and knowledgeable service! Raclette with about 2kg half wheel of cheese on a special burner was the stand out dish ! Who knew melted cheese could be so good - a wonderful fun and delicious experience ! All our meals were excellent... More

This was our second visit to Le Vieux Chalet and both times we were very satisfied. The restaurant has a savoyard character, good classic dishes as well as some surprises. Would definitely visit again on my next trip to Val Thorens

I ate the cheese raclette, our friends took the fondue. VERY good, you will get full as the size of the portion is big! This might not be the cheapest restaurant in Val Thorens, but it isnt the most expensive either, and you will get value for your money. 6 people and two bottles of wine for 200 euros isnt... More
