A Michelin listed mountain restaurant ...? yep it's true .Hearty french rustic dishes and superb local wines are just the thing for a top notch lunch. Perched high above L2A this place oozes quality , not surprising really as it's owned but the Mounier Family of Chalet Mounier in the village who have been hosting winter and summer sports lovers for five generations. They have a bar out front ( which is open air on sunny days ) serving everything from Champagne to Cappuccino and a frittery for those on a budget but if you can spare an hour or two away from the slopes then go inside the main restaurant for a really classy lunch. You won't regret it.

Eaten here several times, staff are always friendly, and the food is always good. Fire place in the middle (modern looking unfortunately) gives some much needed warmth to the bones, with a couple of lines with clothes pegs to dry your things, an owner who cares and knows what he's doing, thank you.

We have returned to Le Diable au Coeur year after year. Good spot in the sun at the top of the lifts for a quick morning coffee or hiding away when the snow is driving across the mountain. Clean, nice decor, great range of mountain food, super fire place for warming hands. Gets busy - so book ahead if going in the main lunch rush hour or with a bigger party. The menu is predominantly regional French and not so cheap (but good value for the quality) - they have a good prix fixe menu changing daily and the kids always found something to try (incuding frogs legs salad!).

The best restaurant to have a snack or a real lunch on the slopes.
We started to stop there everyday, the view is excellent in the veranda, the staff is friendly and the food is great and all in a nice mountain chalet, we couldn't ask for more. Thanks Le Diable au Coeur!

Great location at the top of Diable chairlift, very scenic and great for a long lunch and break (particularly if you have a child who is tired after couple hrs of skiing). Real fire is the ceterpiece and convenient to dry your gloves and jacket. You can also take your ski boots off and use provided slippers and give your legs some rest before skiing down the Diable run (or take the easier blue runs to the center of the village).

Food was surprisingly good. We tried both daily menu, a la carte and child menu (which together with hot chocolates was way too much for 3 of us). Duck was particularly good, while hen was ok (still better than many other mountain restaurants we tried).

Somewhat more expensive than average, but we consider it good price comparing to what you get in many other places on the mountain.

Good and friendly service. Tomorrow is our last day in the resort, and we are planning to go to Le Diable au Coeur again before we leave.

Would definitely recommend, go there if just for a short break and a cup of hot chocolate.
