I don't know what planet the previous reviewer was from but this is an excellent place to stay. The location is great, just a short walk to the ski lift and not much further into town (downhill on the way back!)
For us, the food was excellent. When I go abroad the last thing I want is to be served burger & chips! What I want is what the locals eat...and this is exactly what we got. Every night it was 4 courses of local seasonal food - delicious and well cooked in every respect. Every night was different, from chicken to pork to rabbit to deer - superb!
Edith was a wonderful hostess and the 2 waitresses Maria & Michela were friendly, efficient and approachable - our Italian was next to useless but we made the effort and were rewarded with new phrases every day ;-) We had to leave early on our last night so would have missed breakfast - we got back to our room after dinner to find a tray of breakfast food and a kettle so we wouldn't go hungry - a lovely touch.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Tavernier and would go back in a heartbeat. Make the effort, get into the spirit and you won't be disappointed.
