Loved location and interior. Food was great. It was hard to believe that this good restaurant was riight next door. Entrance is small, but inside you feel immediately that this will be good... We loved small size and atmosphere. View was great towards the slopes. Food was just the icing on the cake. We had sirloin steak for the main... 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

Book in advance.... great food, great location, great service. We loved it and went back several times, and will definitely go back in the future. One of the must restaurants in Val Thorens.

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.

Well Iam very fussy when it comes to food, but really fancied a Raclette in Val Thorens. Reviewed trip advisor and booked Le Vieux Chalet. Now I can be very picky when it comes to restaurants but here I could not pick fault at all. The starter was wholesome, the Raclette excellent and the dessert oh so tasty. The interior... More

After order taken., wine was delivered quickly. But we waited for long time (about 10/15mins) for the water, no big deal, we can wait, perhaps the... More

This is one of the restaurants worth trying while on vacation in Val Thorens. We were a group of 8 and had the best experience! We have tried several restaurants while in Val Thorens but this was definitely the best one. The food was extremely delicious and the deserts are mouth watering! Although a little more pricey than the average... More

We went to this restaurant as a group of 5. The waiters were very attentive and actually quick (very unusual for Val T!). I had the filet of beef with foie gras which was absolutely stunning, perfectly cooked steak and melt in your mouth liver, it came with a delicious sauce and a few chips, not too many which was...
