Suivant les avis de ce site, nous sommes allés dans ce restaurant pour leur fameuse raclette. Nous nous attendions à avoir l'appareil à raclette à notre table et cuire à notre rythme et comme nous le voulions (croute grillée). Et bien non, le serveur garde l'appareil au bar et vous amène le fromage fondu sur une assiette froide ! Le... More

We enjoyed our meals, but this was nothing to shout Bout, and the bill was more than we would have expected. My raclette did not come with the traditional cheese warmer which was disappointing, and the lasagne was "odd" according to my daughter.

The decoration is just what you look for in a mountain resort. Wood and cozy, though the log fire missed! Fondues and Racklettes and other, but mountain specialities recommended. Sad that waiter a little non chalante!

With the Tour de France in town it was a busy night for the restaurant so you think they might of got themselves another staff member or two - they had one person taking orders, one delivering to the table and one person for drinks. As a result, the service was poor, very poor. The guy taking the orders clearly... More

The decor of this place - a fake mountain cabin - is kitchy, but that's just what restaurants in skiing villages tend to be. They have a good choice of typical mountain fare from the region, and a good wine list. The food was good, heavy, and plentiful, again what you'd expect from a resort restaurant. The best feature of... More

We went to this restaurant on the first night of our holiday to celebrate my son's 20th Birthday and were very sorry that we did. The restaurant is pretty and "cosy" but we realised that it was a bit too "cosy" when we got seated as it was hard to sit down as all the tables are so close together.... More

Small restaurant with a great smell of cheese. They serve different cheese-based foods (fondue, raclette), as well as other stuff. The Saltimbocca I had was very good. Wine list is ok, but not too special and not very cheap. This restaurant is probably at least among the top quarter of the village's restaurants.

L'authentique has a lovely atmosphere with a typical alp style interior. We had to wait over 30 minutes for our first courses which was too long! When the starters arrived they were massive. Four of us shared a selection of Italian starters but what we were given was more like an oversized salad. The main courses were of an equally... More

Being a seasonnaire here, I've tried a fair few restaurants in town and would like to think I can compare most on an equal footing. Atmosphere here is probably the biggest plus point, very cosy, small restaurant. Food was ok. Items on the menu don't spring out at you for a start. We had minestrone to start which was nice,...

We booked this restaurant because the menus looked great. Unfortunately the children's menu only applied to under 8s. The pasta dishes we ordered for our children arrived in vast bowls containing more pasta than we, as adults, could possibly have eaten, which was very off putting. The tartiflette was disappointingly oily, containing vey few lardons and for some reason was... More
