Everything about this place is amazing- the food was delicious and so much of it, the wine was also excellent! The atmosphere was great - very busy (advise booking!). The decor was very authentic and French (beautiful flowers!) and the waiter/owner was so lovely and helpful and attentive. Will come back here again for sure!

The food was great, we had Founde Royale, it was so good that despite the generous portion we managed to scrape the pot clean. My french is quite poor and the waiting staff just got by in english, but still they managed to throw a few jokes and made the evening quite pleasant. Make sure you reserve as the place... More

Went here with a group of friends, booked in advance due to reviews on trip advisor. It is not in the hub of the resort but worth finding it. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the food delicious. We ordered cheese fondue, tartiflette, meat fondue and piraude between 8 of us. All tasted amazing and came with very yummy salad...

As a non-French speaker, I would never have gone to this restaurant if it wasn't for my French friend. So glad I did, and I would recommend it to all. The food was lovely. We had the duck/beef and, with that, had a personal grill on the table with us. The cuts of meat were fantastic. The service was great... More

A group of 7 of us ate at the Petite Taverne. We had raclette, fondue and pierrade. All were excellent. The service was very good; we had a great evening, and were very grateful.

Good atmosphere, a visit to Alpe d'Huez is not complete without visiting Laurants' Petite Taverne. Making a reservation is always done in a personal setting, the place is not big but that is part of the cozy atmosphere. The food is good, typical French and always served with a big smile. Besides the quality, also the quantity is good. The... More
