HIGH, CLASS, DINING(butcher, cheese maker, fishmonger, wine maker, baker..) and the modern, specially adapted techniques required (low-temperature slow cooking, heat-immersion, vacuum and pressure cooking…). The whole menu makes maximum use of quality local (Savoyarde) produce, an open invitation to indulge in the superb regional food culture. La Fruiterie is equally original in its interior design, taking its inspiration from the old mountain dairies, with a thoroughly modern design interpretation: from the white metal milk churns to the regional Beaufort styled furniture, the visible zinc pipework to the staff uniforms. The staff team are young, enthusiastic and dynamic, from the kitchens to the front of house, the emphasis is on a totally cool client/staff rapport, creating powerful customer loyalty.

Still very good but slow

Went twice last week, food is excellent but on both occasions we waited over 45 minutes Service was poor, had to ask for a lot. Nothing was done to make it easy But we'll go back

Marvellous restaurant. Eat inside or out. The best food we had in Val D'isere for sure. You have to go!

La Fruitiere did not disappoint. We had been to their restaurant in Meribel, and this one is just as good if not better. Reblochon lollipops, insane caesar salad and a delicious special of filo pastry parcel of black pudding, foie gras and chestnuts with a juniper berry jus (this was between two of us!!). It was all amazingly scrumptious and... More

I have traveled to many countries and have eaten at many restaurants. However the excellent service and the marvellous food at Frutiere is enough for me to visit Val D'isere once more. The hospitality of the waiters, the great atmosphere and the selection of wines and the finess of the menu is absolutely incredible. Had such a good experience that... More

No fixed lunch menu offers, so the an average three course la carte meal doubles the 2+ Michelin star London restaurant three course lunch menues in price, while the level of cooking is not nearly a match. ski slopes obviously count more than Knightsbridge or Mayfair. But why not, it does get fully booked at lunch, we were lucky to... More

food is consistently excellent; service is always friendly ; and they are extremely efficient , so if you want to stop for no more than 45 mins to an hour, you can get back to the slopes or get lost at la folie douces next door!

I will start out by saying that the drinks were free after we complained. But that does not make up for the fact that I could have eaten next door in the self service at Folie, for half the price and with 10% of the hassle. I pay a premium for a sit down meal for less hassle, not more.... More

My friends and I visited La Fruitiere for lunch last Friday after reading a Telegraph review. We found the whole experience to be greatly disappointing, it took a considerable amount of time to be seated. The waiter was not attentive, we had to chase constantly for water and drinks. I requested with my meal that there was no butter on... More

Some of the best food we had at Val d'Isere was at La Fruitiere an on-mountain restaurant. You can sit in the charm and warmth inside and enjoy the ambience. Or you can sit outside and enjoy the party going on at the adjacent La Folie Douce. We chose the former once and the latter twice. The food is just... More

Have been enjoying lunches at la fruitiere for many years but the quality of the restaurant is now very disappointing. Over the years it has changed from a restaurant with a lively bar next door to a bar with a restaurant on the side. Service is now very poor, slow and frustrating. food really quite average compared to what it... More
