Cosy little restaurant offering local alpine dishes that will boost back your energy - we tasted the Fondue Vacherin on recommendation together with old style Raclette & Magret de Canard between 6. First time to try this Fondue variation - was surprised by the more mature/mustier taste which worked well for us - of course the restaurant provided us with... More

The food was very good, but it took over an hour to get our order. And they have 2 services for dinner, 19:00 and 21:30. So around 20:45 they told us that we have 20 minutes to finish :/ even tho it took then an eternity to get our food! We had the worst table, by the entrance, it was... More

Savoyard fare with a little more refinement, a bit more upmarket than the other slope facing establishments. Decided on meat, the foie gras was beautiful and the sirloin hit the spot, although slightly unusual in that two cuts were sandwiched between potatoes. Noticed that a lot of other tables ordered the raclette, which might have been the way to go.... More

We had a great Savoyard-style dinner here and really enjoyed ourselves. The waitress who served us was charming and efficient and apart from the fact that we were seated upstairs on our own for a while (before it filled up), the whole experience was really good. Pricewise: nowhere is cheap in this resort but I thought the prices were reasonable... More

We went to Le Vieux Chalet for my birthday dinner on a Saturday night on the season opening weekend. The atmosphere of the restaurant is surprisingly cosy and homy for Val Thorens (which is more on the concrete jungle side overall), it feels like a real old mountain chalet. The food was super tasty. We shared a platter of charcuterie... More

We've been to this resort on a few occasions and this was my first visit to this little gem. You do need to book this restaurant for dinner. The service and waiters were excellent and helped us with any questions we had. To start we had the vegetable soup with ham and a homemade terrine. We both opted for the... More

Great little restaurant on a quiet road in the resort. Restaurant is brilliantly decorated but also quite small so make sure you book. Food was excellent and the service matched.
