Top of the col, breathtaking panorama

Easy to find, great lunch spot, the tartiflette is the best. We spotted a small plane in the Val Thorens valley which then proceeded to buzz us at about 80 metres, just for fun. Leaving is just as much fun, as you are at the top of Jerusalem.

Been there with 2 friends during a ski trip around the Three Valleys. The Team is friendly and offers a warm welcome. The food is excellent and not pricey at all. The sunny terrace gives you a beautiful view. You feel at home. Highly recommended !

Great little traditonal restaurant. We eat here ever year and always have a really nice lunch. The steak this year was same as usual..excellent..! The menu is very simple and hardly changes each season but for a lovely lunch in a real authentic family run mountain log cabin this one is hard to beat. A word of warning. In bad... More

This tiny mountain restaurant has been here for years, run by the same family. Happily it hasn't changed although it does now take credit cards. The best tartiflette in the 3Vallees. Food is always realiably filling and delicious, the staff are always cheerful and you get very speedy service if you need it but you are never hurried if you... More

This a a superb little mountain log cabin restaurant. Simple menu but wondeful steaks. It seems the owner was a butcher and gets all his steaks from a mate still in the business! We had entrecote which was really tasty and a lovely apple and rhubarb tart for dessert. House wine included expect about 30-35 euros a person . Fabulous... More

We booked here for Christmas day as we knew we would be up the mountain, and with a group of 7, it was best to book. A wonderful welcome awaited us, no tacky Christmas cheer here - just genuine, ebullient, atmospheric and authentic Savoyard cuisine. Wonderful people, fast efficient service. Gorgeous views from inside the cosy chalet style cabin. Requested... More

Les Trois Vallees, a dream in white. Riding your skis down the slopes of Meribel, Courchevel or Val Thorens is kind of experience, physical and emotional. "Les Cretes" restaurant, is the best things you should wish for, while you are on top the Tougnete. The restaurant has an out-side deck and an inside rustic dinning space. Be sure to reserve...

This could be a great place it has a prime location at the top of the hill between Meribel on one side and St Martin De Bellville on the other. Unfortunately the service for me was poor. It wasn't busy, lots of empty tables around but it took quite a while for a waitress to take my order. It was... More

Stopped by for a sunny vin chaud between runs down the wonderful Jerusalem (red run down to St Martin). We heard that the the patron is prone to taking dislikes to clients,but we found nothing but a warm welcome and a pleasant drink
