Lovely Fondue and Beef

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... read 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

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
