I'm a vegetarian and the husband is an omnivore. Usually when we eat out one has a satisfying meal whilst the other suffers a mediocre experience. Well we both enjoyed above average cusine, it was such a treat and wonderful service. I highly recommend.

We spent a cosy few hours in this establishment during a Christmas ski trip. The service was very good and we got a few tips on local food preparation from our very helpful waiter. We plumped for the snail starter and were pleasantly surprised.The main course we chose was a rack of slow cooked lamb.This was one of the best... More

We came across this little place on a trawl to find any eatery in Val Thorens which didn't simply serve the Savoyarde/ Pizza standard menu. It was a good find. In some places you get an immediate vibe that the service will be attentive and helpful, and that the staff are interested in their customers. This is one of those... More

We had a memorable meal in this restaurant in 2001 with a group of friends where the opportunity to double up for raclette was helpful. This time we sat upstairs and for much of the time were the only diners which may have something to do with the pricing and the fact that most people in the resort at the... More

Came base on recommendation, had a very good dinner so it was all going towards a very good experience. However, one incident turned the overall experience to a disappointment: our young son was offered a lemonade and decided he wants one. Turned out, when the drink arrived , that it is a carbonated clear lemonade which tasted more as Sprite... More

We had a really nice meal at le Vieux Chalet. The ambiance was wonderful, with cozy seating areas and lovely decor. The food was also great. My friend and I loved our raclette, and my other friend really enjoyed her vegetarian entree. Would definitely recommend.
