We come to L'Edelweiss year upon year during the ski season and it just gets better! Stunning views surround you whilst you eat most delicious food and sip on some hot chocolate. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone; guaranteed. I recommend booking as it gets very busy at lunch times! Worth every penny!

Amazing food half way down a blue run, with great views. Service is second to none. I had rabbit stew with polenta which was fantastic

My wife and I love this place. We first eat here sneakily whilst our first two children were in ski school and creche down in Val D'Isere. I think we had linguine with scallops followed by crumble, a glass or two of wine and a marc de Savoie- skied a bit then came back for hot chocolate. We haven't skied... More

Really good mountain restaurant - blue runs to get to it that can be tricky! Excellent food, location & staff - definitely worth visiting.

Much a change from the other high altitude restaurants, this place is not an overpriced tourist trap. The food is delicious and fresh. It is well worth a detour coming to eat here. Reservations must be made in advance, usually early that morning would suffice.

Food was really good. The place is very cozy and with a great atmosphere. I had the menu du jour and it was fantastic (steak, salad, potatoes gratin and vegetables; and then a great dessert). Wine was very good too.

we made a stop there at around at around 4 pm for hot chocolate and hot wine, we waited 30 minutes for a very bad hot chocolate made with powder and water, we were suppose to go eat there the next day but changed our mind, if they can not do that right we did not want to eat there.

Had a steak tenderloin for lunch at the restaurant today. Very tough. Informed staff who did nothing. I expected at the very least an apology, but nothing. Great wine and chocolate dessert. Great atmosphere. Just a shame I left most of the main course tenderloin. Will go for coffee, cakes, bar, but not main meal.

This is the place to eat whilst skiing. Very interesting menu with frequent changes. Today there was superb tuna with Thai rice whist a friend enjoyed beef cheeks cooked to perfection. Great views. Reservations a must. DON'T RESERVE A TABLE USING ANSWERING SERVICE AS THE MESSAGE WILL NOT BE UPLIFTED. Phone after 09.30 or call in person. They seem to... More
