“Good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

The only spot where I could get a coffee to go in the morning (on my way home after placing the kid to the ski school). The coffee was good, and on my 4th (and last day) the barman gave it to me for free.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

An ok restaurant with standard menu choices. Service can be slow, but they are very friendly! If you want to eat here on the Friday night of a week skiing, book a table in advance.

“Expensive drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had dinner in the place once during our stay in Les Menuires, service is friendly, the food was very good, my son and myself had pizza and my wife carbonara pasta. The price for the food was ok, around 11 euros each plate, the only problem was the coke...7 euros each glass...very expensive!

“Enjoyed many lunches in the sun on their terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Very friendly and fast service. I enjoyed many lunches with colleagues while sitting on their lovely terrace at the bottom of the slopes - it's the perfect place to stop.
The views are incredible (even though you're not at the top of the mountain) and it's a great sun trap.
The service is so friendly they all smile and will chat to you, explain things - really great.
I had the goats cheese salad on more than one occasion and while it differed depending on what ingredients they had in (one day there was a whole pigs worth of lardons on the top!) it was still always delicious.
Would thoroughly recommend it. Thanks.
