“Great dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Wonderful local food with a modern twist, highly recommended, run by young people who are very charming and friendly, local decoration, not too big or noisy. Surely a place to go back to, the pumpkin soup and the duck were fantastic!!

“Good local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Friendly little restaurant with range of menu choices including home made gnocchi starter very good. Visited 2 times during the week and both times enjoyed meal. Good sized portions for starters so you may want to share. Homemade Baileys and chocolate charlotte recommended.

“Strange brew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

had a fantastic "gourmet" meal in Le Basillic. Very french , as you would expect, so not brilliant for vegetarians. Their signature aperitif is a Basil infused wine which is definitely an acquired taste. That being said the service was excellent and the seletion of local wines was very comprehensive. well worth a visit if you are a foodie like me.

““Great service, value, food and wine””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Pleasant courteous and accommodating service for a 3 & 5 year olds accompanying four adults on a ski vacation. Fresh ingredients and local dishes with a good selection of French wines at reasonable prices. Recommend the fondue, pasta dishes and selection of desserts for all tastes. CHarming and polite people, wonderful for family or quiet romantic evening.

“Enjoyed so much went back 3 days later”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

We went as a family, two small children and four adults, the fondue was fab, the children got colouring pencils and paper, the food was very good, the service exceptions and the staff very accommodating. The wine list was reasonable and well managed. We returned three days later and enjoyed an equally good experience. I would recommend this small but well appointed restaurant with true alpine hospitality, good food and wine at a fair price.
