Great italian lunch

A local recommended Jam Bar as a good place to eat lunch. All in all, it was a very nice lunch. I had the pasta carbonara and it was a large portion and freshly cooked. The pasta was a bit on the al dente side for my preference, but overall the meal was delicious.

It's a small place but big on quality and warm service. I was travelling on my own but was made to feel very welcome here. The menu is small but more importantly there was carbonara on it !!! Carbonara all the way! See you next year

We were first to review Jam Bar, some years back. Back then, we loved the friendly welcome, the best coffee we could find, and the great pasta. We've had a few years over at Avoriaz, but the Jam Bar was a significant part of the pull back to Tignes. The coffee is still the best we could find (I hate... More

Although small and cosy one of the great places to have lunch or an early tea, great food and bombardino's!! Staff are always welcoming and it's close to the bottom lifts in Le Lac if you want to avoid the busy restaurant's up on the slopes.

Great bar. Rocco always makes you feel welcome. The live music is always entertaining - not always great, but the bar gives everyone a chance so fair play.

They do only a few things but they do them very well. The menu is limited by choice (and by the tiny kitchen) but this was the best meal we had at Tignes. Incredible pasta, great paninis, wonderful gelato. Very friendly chef/owners. A highlight of our holiday!

Delphine and Rocco are simply the best hosts in Tignes, the Apls and maybe the world! Great food, brilliant company and music. Every year we see the same skiiers and riders because we all come back to see Delphine and Rocco - we now have friends in Brazil because of the Jam Bar. Just Great, see you next season!

This is a cosy little bar run by a great couple, Rocco and Delphine. They serve good paninis, bruschettas and very good freshly cooked pasta. Also has good music during the jamming sessions featuring Rocco and local musicians.

We were recommended the place by a friend as a great place to go for a meal on the chalet staff's night off during our ski holiday and it didn't disappoint. The really friendly staff I think were actually the owners and were fantastic.
