Great spot for lunch

Having read a couple of reviews on TA, we gave it a go on a clear day. Pulled together two tables for a group of 8 on the south facing sun terrace and had a great lunch with a good selection of mountain specialities and regular meals on the menu, washed down with a decent carafe of rose.

Had a brilliant omelette up in this restaurant. Good hearty mountain food and wine. Staff friendly and service quick. Good for a lunch break after flying through the pow.

We could see this bar from our chalet, it was a lovely walk and the views were outstanding as we drank our hot chocolate on the terrace.

We met my wife, who was walking rather than skiing at the Dou du Praz. Although it can be reached, with a little difficulty, on skis it is in an attractive area that is used by walkers, cross country skiers and dog sleighs. It is the sister restaurant of the Terminus in Moutier, near the station. It has a lovely... More

Not so easy to access but worth it. Great terrace facing south. proper service unlike the other joints on the slopes. Genuinely good food. Not cheap but price is justified on a relative basis.

this is a great little place which used to be accessed easily from a chairlift. This has now disappeared. Wish access was easier. Now a bit more difficult to find but well worth a visit. perhaps this will be rectified for those of us who want to relax and have any easy ski at the end of the day. Also... More

We got great food! (cheese fondue with meat and salade). The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The entertainment (singer who played piano/gitare) was very good. We had so much fun! The whole place was having fun together and singing along with the entertainment! The only minor is that it was on top of the hill. So we had to... More

This was the first time we found this place, purely by accident, after taking a long button so we could ski down the half pipe! The food was fine and service good. The only problem was that we were persuaded to buy a 30Euro bottle of wine which certainly did not live up to expectations!

Lovely cafe/restaurant/bar which you can walk to along cleared paths. Can also ski to. Fantastic views and lovely coffee. We stopped off on a walk from Plagne Village down to Plagne Centre but there are other walks from here to Bellecote or a circular walk which reveals a fantastic mountain panorama. A great place for ski-ers and non ski-ers to... More
