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.

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

The service was very average here, especially in terms of the price paid for a two person lunch (€90 without alcohol) the waiting staff where constantly changing and when wanting oil for the bread it was easier to just get it ourselves than wait for a staff member to acknowledge us. A cool part of this restaurant was they gave... More

We booked in advance all good with that. Then it deteriorated one starter forgotten, served by 7 different staff, not the greatest cooked or flavoured food. Luckily as it was New Year's Day and the sun was shining that made up for the family lunch having us all in one place. But having been going to val for 25 years... More

There is a great atmosphere from the adjoining bar, but unfortunately the food in this restaurant was very poor, and very pricey! Would recommend going to the self service in the adjoining la Folie Douce instead and saving some money.

Having booked a table we arrived early so asked for an aperitif, champagne tasted bad so sent back and had to chase up for a new glass. Once sat down asked for tap water with the meal but had to get own glasses- asked for a glass of red wine 3 times before having to ask for the manager who... More

we were with a group of 19 and had reserved the underground wine cave room in advance. The French Onion soup wasn't the best, but the burgers were great. The rose and draft beer were cold and the service was excellent. Don't be late here because they will make you leave in time for your next seating -at least that's... More

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
