Although being extremely busy the staff managed to find us a table outside in the sun. The views of Mont Blanc are priceless. Service was prompt without being rushed and the food was first class. Not the cheapest place for a quick bite to eat but the quality of the food more than makes up the costs.

O'Communailles is one of those little gems that you would only give to close friends for fear that the entire resort would start going there. The place is very cozy both inside and outside, with a nicely decorated terrace offering a stunning view over the Mont Blanc. You could say some other places offer similar setups and could be right,... More

Great terrace for a lunch in the sun when you have tired legs and a thirsty bunch of friends with you on the slopes. Half the tables were pre-booked for lunch, lots of returning customers. Food was rich and good.

I went there after a long walk on the mountain and wanted to have French fries. However they told us that the kitchen was closed, and then I tried to convince them to open the kitchen. The lady there was so so nice that she made the kitchen opened just for the French fries and she even said welcome to... More

A follow on to Revue84. I totally agree with all of the comments. The restaurant had been given weeks of notice on the party size,had issued a restricted menu and said no problem to manage a group of about 30. The food served up was candidly dreadful but compounding this was also dreadful service ,they were totally disorganised and uninterested.... More

This beautiful modern Savoyard's style restaurant has impeccable service, wonderful decor and aspect, and a small but thoughtfully chosen selection of wines. I had the plat du jour - a slow cooked veal with a rich blueberry jam gravy and a wonderful mushroom pasta accompaniment - all I can say is "sensational" - probably the highlight meal of the trip....

We attended Les Communailles with a pre-booked party at the weekend. Our requirements had already been pre-discussed and we had an agreed set menu and sitting time, so we could be fed quickly as people had pre-arranged ski commitments etc. After arriving on time, we were seated in the semi-outside tent-like room, which had been set for us. The view... More

Dropped in for lunch at O'Communailles for the first time today and would thoroughly recommend. A mountain restaurant with spectacular views and a menu with a twist. Lovely aperitifs and fantastic (huge) desserts - would recommend both the raspberry cheesecake and the chocolate pannacotta. Lovely service from both the staff and the owner. Very happy that this restaurant is close... More
