We've been there 2 days ago with my family. We called but it was already full, they told us to come and wait for a place if there is any. This is what we did, it was full but the table rotation was pretty amazing and we found a beatufil place right in front of the panoramic view. It was... More

This is the ultimate in ski and ski out dining with a nice sunny position and awesome views back down the valley. As a vegetarian the choices were somewhat limited.

It is ideally located on a slope before reaching the Fornet, and offers a terrace with a view. The menu is varied, seafood, fish , meat etc and we had some excellent ravioli, with a beer. Fast, efficient and polite service for a good lunch before skiing again. Consistent quality over the years makes this place one of the best... More

Excellent food and menu but its always busy, the way the restaurant has expanded over the last 3 years is down to its position, service and not to far to ski home if you've had a great lunch. Highly recommend

We ate here and the food was good albeit expensive. We tried to come back and eat a second time but got a very french uncivil "we are busy it is full". Charmless. We then ended up having a beer, onion soup and plate of charcuterie at the attached bar and found that was a better experience.

Ambiance relaxed with cool music - the pasta speciality was delicious. The terrace is a great sun trap, perfect to soak up the rays and vitamin D!

We have eaten here many times and the food is really great and highly recommended and the waiting staff are also generally pretty helpful but there is a danger all the plaudits are going to there head, if you arrive early or try to get in without a booking the Maitre'd is very...

We have eaten at this piste side restaurant several times over the years, and we always enjoy the experience. Sometimes the welcome is a little abrupt, but once you get over that, the service is pretty good and the food is delicious.

Foot and service was excellent. Great steak and friends who had the lamb said it was fab. Easy to ski down to Le Fornet after
