Good for: Romance, Local cuisine
Dining options: Lunch, Reservations
Description: 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.

Ideal spot on the ski fields, nearby la folie douce, but far better. Excellent and fast service Great food, very generous portions...(try the local Boudin) and good quality of tasty products. Pricing is reasonnable at 20-25euros the main course And the expresso coffee is excellent! Worth the try!

Eaten here a number of times over the years. Quirky & fun interior. Food can be hit & miss - some mains are outstanding, some a bit less so. Puddings excellent apart from chocolate fondant that was a slab of cake NOT a fondant. It's the "place" to go & worth a visit.

You need to be booked outside here to give it justice, inside,it's a bit crowded and normal. But get on the terrace with the music playing,sun shining and the dancers and its a different place. DON'T have the duck shepards pie......tried it and,with polenta on top instead of Tatties, its vile. There are a lot of good choices and the... More

Pretentious food served by pretentious staff at ridiculous prices. I have no idea why they suggest booking as we shared our table with strangers. After suffering a starter and main which I found inedible (steer clear of fondant leek and hot pot). I have never been served cold leeks in a cheese sauce before or sausages thrown into a pot...

Went here 2 weeks ago great atmosphere but the service & food was disgraceful. Twice our food was brought out cold not even an apology or discounted bill. Go for the music & dancing but give the expensive food & bad service a miss which so typical of the French.

Booked a table of 8 for a friends Birthday who was working in Val for the season. Ordered some nice wine and the waiter just dumped it in a bucket!! didn't ask if we would like to try it or even bother poring it. We all shared some starters - cheese selection and pata negra, which was lovely. Our main... More

La Fruitiere is a nice place for lunch, The patron is friendly and the waiters are helpful & attentive. Tartiflette €27 – umm expensive, but hey it must be good for that price, enough to share maybe.? Wrong, very small portion, not the best, disappointing, That was just one dish though, if you go here don’t order Tartiflette, you can... More

We had lunch here on our last trip to Val and it was excellent. The food was delicous and the service was very friendly. The place had a nice buzz and is very well located. It had a great wine list and a excellent menu. I would highly recommend this place for lunch but be prepared to give your credit... More

A wonderful restaurant location, easy to access for both the experienced and novices amongst our group. There is a very relaxed, easy going ambience to La Fruitiere, with a little more dining space than most we visited. The food was of a good, but not exceptional quality. Beautifully, and uniquely presented dishes, albeit expensive for the standard. The service was... More

We visited La Fruitier 3 times during our week and a half in Val, once eating outdoors rugged up in their sleeping bags and twice inside. Great wait staff with a superb attitude and an excellent food and wine menu. Try the beef stew, the meat just falls apart, la boeuf was tender and cooked rare and the daily special... More
