Cheese FUNdue!

Very nice meal in this very homely looking restaurant, service was a bit slow but it didn't matter as we were with friends so it felt good not to be rushed along. Would definitely recommend the cheese fondue! You are in France after all!

We turned up without a reservation and was seated immediately. The waiter spoke very good English and the burger was to die for!! Would highly recommend to anyone but would advise reserving a table.

Decoration is nice, as expected from a mountain restaurant, food was OK, we had a cheese foundue and milanesa for the childrens, felt is little bit over priced but can't confirm this 3ppl 80 euros (without alcohol), just one plate p/p. Will check other options on my next visit to Alp d' Huez

This is a lovely little find in the village. The service is a little nonchalant but not that you feel un-looked after. I would highly recommend the delicious fondue made with 5 cheeses, truly delicious. The fillet of beef was perfectly cooked although the stir fried vegetables were highly salted. The wedges and sauce served with the steak were divine.... More

carpaccio meats to start... Pretty good... Saltibocca was over powering and too rich... Tiramisu lacked alcohol and biscuits... Generally, our group of five returned 75% of our food and the restaurants response was to charge the full bill... Bad experience...

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
