We were grabbing a late spring ski trip and our first day coincided with the last day of the season at Brevent. After a lovely morning skiing, we stopped for lunch here as it is very convenient for the gondola. As a group of two families we opted for the speed and convenience of the lower bar restaurant "Le Comptoir... More

We stopped here for lunch and were lucky to sit outside without a reservation. The service was quite slow, and the waiting staff didn't seem too keen on us only having one course and were punching us for more. The food was good, though not a huge range, and came with the expected mountain price tag. Worth it if you... More

Fabulous first lunchtime visit, entre cote and veal to die for, with superb desserts (ricotta with creme de marrons was yummy) delivered in a slick and professional manner. Booking essential. Hefty bill, but it was so good, we didn't care. Fast forward to visit number two. Having booked again, we asked to sit outside this time. Plenty of empty tables,... More

So good I ate here both days on a recent ski trip. A short menu of decent French staples, with great service at a reasonable prices. They take reservations so pop in when you first pass it in the morning a book a table.

the good here is very good but service was quite slow and it was quite pricey - I paid €16 for a bowl of soup (served very nicely in a Le parfait jar!). The soup was really delicious though but just seemed a lot to pay for soup. My husband had the rack of lamb special and he thought it... More

La Bergerie de Planpraz should be a top restaurant to go to. The view is just outstanding, the terrace is nicely made with a beautiful surrounding. Unfortunately, did we have another bad experience. Even if the restaurant is not completely booked, the service seems to be completely swamped, taking hours for the orders. Meals come way after each other (funny... More

It was a glorious sunny winter's day so we chose to sit outside and enjoy the lovely views at this restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful and offered good suggestions for wine and food. It was quite warm in the early afternoon so we began with salads before moving on to delicious deserts.

We arrived for lunch and I guess the restaurant was 90% full. We all ordered salads and they took an hour to come. Our drinks took forever as well. However when the food came it was well presented and very tasty. Hoping that they can sort out their peak service delivery.

For years this was a perfect place to have a great lunch when skiing Brevent. This now is no longer so. Attractively described dishes are a mere disappointment; and the service is poor, ill motivated and disorganized.
