We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious and superb Sunday lunch. The roast potatoes melted in the mouth and the gravy and accompanying vegetables were lovely. Accompanied by lovely wine and stunning views this is the best.

Had the pleasure of staying in the Black Diamond Lodge recently, )please see my separate review for BDL on my home page) and thought we'd give the cuisine a try out in the in-house restaurant. They had only just changed the menu and we liked...what we read on the Chalk Board presented to us while we waited by the huge open fire in the lunge area. The service staff were very presentable, professional and friendly, and before long, we had ordered and were seated and a lovely bottle of house red ( only 15€ wow ) was brought and poured into our glasses. We were also brought a plate of canapes but for the life of me, I cannot remember what they were but DO remember that they were very tasty.. Spanish Prawns and Chicken Ballotine were our 1st courses - Well presented and with all the right flavours, especially the Paella style risotto, which as any professional chef knows, isnt always that easy to get right. Its WAS spot on.. !! Sirloin Steak and Cod Curry - The steak was an amazingly high quality cut of meat and was cooked medium rare, to perfection. The COD was also cooked well presented nicely, and the rice was great. I had one minor issue with the curry sauce though. Just a slight after taste but a very simple mistake and probably the curry leaves used to make the sauce may have been left in when blended.. THATS JUST ME BEING VERY PICKY THOUGH.. ;) The MEAL was great and the PUDDINGS?? OMW.. Fresh, sticky, caramely, sweet, ALL the things you NEED in a good desert. As the title says.. This was a "Box Ticker" of an evening and look forward to going back next season x xMore

We had a delicious meal at Black Diamond, having dined here previously last season it once again lived up to our expectations. The food was first class and beautifully presented. The stuffed chicken was cooked beautifully as were all three steaks, one of each rare,...medium and well done. Black Diamond has a lovely ambience with just the right level of background music. The staff are friendly, welcoming and attentive. A great dining experience, we can't wait to return next year !More

The restaurant has been upgraded since I was last hear (it’s nice to see some reinvestment and improvements being made) and the result is better....Molly the waitress was the perfect host and Charlie on the bar does a mean G&T!More

Great atmosphere, watching England lose to Wales in the Six nations. Service is fairly quick, and there seem to be enough bar staff who know what they are doing!! Don't bother to eat though... This is not a restuarant, more just a pub which does...a bit of food.... Better off getting a pizza from the supermarket and warming it up yourself!More

We ate at Black Diamond a number of times during our week in Ste Foy. They have an excellent a la carte menu, every dish was beautiful and we were looked after extremely well by the friendly and efficient staff. There's also a great bar...menu that we really enjoyed. The whole place has a lovely ambience, alpine lodge with added style, luxury but laid back, from the bustling bar to the spacious restaurant. A real treat.More

We ate in Black Diamond a few times during our week in Ste Foy and thoroughly enjoyed everything we had. The kitchen present a varied and interesting menu that evolved throughout the week and the front of house team, led by the excellent Georgia, were...friendly and attentive without being over-bearing. The scallops with cauliflower was fantastic, as is the prawn starter, while the duck main course with stir fry veg was beautiful and the shared Cote de Boeuf made a great last-night treat. Definitely recommended if you fancy a bit of a treat, and worth popping in just for an apres-ski drink too as there is a great atmosphere in the bar with friendly and knowledgable staff, and regular live music too.More

Resort casual - Sainte Foy is a very casual resort and no formal dress is required. Jeans are fine and please wear decent winter boots whenever the weather is inclement. We are very friendly and informal. Best, Rachel
