We ate dinner while staying in Bessans.
The place is nice and the service was friendly - with no English menu they had to translate and explain and did it with a lot of patience.
They serve dishes of the local regional cuisine which uses a lot of cheese and pork fat (lardon) with very dominant flavor. The food is tasty but heavy and the portion are huge, so either come with a very big appetite or share a dish.

Stumbled across this place when on a driving tour in the Alps. Had a very peasant lunch of salad with local meats and cheese. Hard to fault. Apparently popular with the locals too which is a good sign.

we ate here after our cross country ski marathons both days and the food was plentiful and delicious. The menu is extensive with not only great French dishes and Italian dishes generally but great local dishes too and portions are generous. Word of warning the large portions of pasta are large like a platter! All the dishes are fresh and delicious. My veggie friend enjoyed is fare and I enjoyed my steak and our other friend enjoyed his platter of fresh pasta large enough for a family of 5. The next time I had a lovely crepe but the fondue at the other table looked wonderful too.
