I go to France most years for Skiing/Snowboarding and always use the Rep's day off to go to a restaurant to have my yearly Fondue. La Refuge has been the best restaurant I have been to in the Alps to date. Varied menu, great service and fairly Ok costs considering its in a resort. Highly recommended. Would be 5 out... More

Been going to Plagne Centre with friends for many years and, have tried most of the restaurants there. We have used La Refuge since the days it was a very basic cafe. It is now a very nicely presented restaurant with a more sophisticated menu and, in our opinion, one of the best in Plagne Centre. We went there again... More

The place was amazing. The food was felt in your mouth good, no other place in the mountain tasted half as good. I recommend everybody visiting should eat here at least once. The Fondant and Gratin are probably the best money can buy, huge value for money.

We visited La Refuge on our chalet host's night off after reading the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. We were a group of 5 and all had the 19 euro set menu consisting of walnut salad, steak & frites and a choice of ice cream or tart for desert. All the food was very tasty and the... More

Enjoyed an excellent evening meal here on New Years Day. We were looking for traditional Raclette. Not disappointed. We watched others having fondue or Hot Stone and that looked good too. Good atmosphere. The food was fresh, well presented and good quantities. More than we could eat! The service was fast and efficient. The restaurant was full and buzzing but... More

We ate here on New Years day with 6 adults and 2 young children. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the fondue was superb. We opted for 3 meat and 3 cheese and ended up with more food than we could possibly manage. Lovely salad with the fondue and excellent house rose wine. The fondue was around 24... More

Visited here as a family over Christmas. Between us we tried the Raclette, Fondue & Hot Stone. Staff were really friendly & food was incredibly tasty, if a little pricey.
