Lovely stop off for lunch

We were recommended to stop here for lunch by our ski instructor. Beautiful setting and very pleasant decor. Unlike others we found the Madame to be very welcoming and friendly. Sadly the other staff were not so friendly. The blonde waitress was either English or very good with English but she... read more

First the bad- Madame could be much more welcoming; if she knows you and you are French then the smile comes out. That aside the staff are friendly, the food is very good and it is one of the best places to stop for lunch on the mountains. The terrace is a great place to stop for lunch whether it's... More

Fabulous steak from the wood fire grill in a great location close to the pistes. Plan to return before the week is over... Merci Audrey!

On our one night 'off' at our chalet, we walked the short distance up the hill to le Vieux Chalet for dinner and enjoyed a wonderful meal: top class all over, but especially the barman/sommelier. Excellent!

We called in on our way back to our chalet and had two excellent beers sitting on the outdoor terrace. The service was great and the waitress put the over head heater on which was fabulous.

Had a splendid lunch at the Vieux Chalet for the second time this season. The food is consistently delicious and the service exceptional. The wine-waiter, Bruno, is an expert at the right wine in your price bracket.This by far the best restaurant in the four star category in the Aravis mountains, add to that an almost perfect location, especially when...

Had lunch at Let Vieux Chalet today, I agree with previous reviewers comments re "poshness" of owners, rest of clientele also reminded me of the "Made in Chelsea" set, but had excellent food and it is in a great location. Not cheap but great value for the quality of the food etc. Try the steak.

We had an excellent lunch on the sunny terrace which is on the piste, so ski in & ski out, with mountain views and is only a very short ski down (or catch the gondola) back to the village. Barbequed food also available at lunch, the steak looked succulent; excellent selection of food and wine. Went back for dinner one... More

Do not miss, is the place to eat in La Clusaz. Perfect location in the middle of the slopes. Amazing meat and wine and locely desserts.

Wow, this restaurant is spectacular, by far the best food I have eaten all year. Experienced a four hour lunch and went through the menu. Service was excellent, very very civilised establishment could easy qualify for a Michelin Star. Had to try it again the next day, it wasn't a fluke!
