OK so I had read the reviews and various friends had told me to visit La Folie Douce during my visit, we ended up doing so 3 times while i Val Thorens. The apres which kicks off around half 2/3 is really worth it with a mixture of great club music and lots and lots of dancing. It will be busy and a round isnt particularly cheap however it is definitely worth. The DJ and live entertainer keeping the crowd going do a great job and really get everyone going. It Is hard to explain this place so check out the various youtube videos which show the unique atmosphere!

One word of warning, if you are a timid skier then leave before the main crowd, when you have several hundred drunk people storming down the mountain it can be carnage. Literally people on the deck the whole way down! Very funny (especially after beers yourself) but actually quite dangerous at times.

Awesome venue!

It was amazing sight as you came back from your days skiing. It is located on your way back to Val Thorens. It is a very inviting when you stand at the top of the mountain looking over the crowd with music blasting out over the valley. As you slide down the mountain the atmosphere gets better and better as you see the DJ's building the crowd and dancing over them from a balcony! A great way to finish the days skiing. Think that runsfrom around 15:00 to about 17:00.

I went to La Folie Douce after a day on the slopes and was attracted by the crowds and music. Had a few beers, soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed the views from the outside deck. Just be sure you are able to ski down after!

great lunch - reasonable value and well cooked - plenty of choice - haven't tried the restaurant but the self-service is better than most in VT :)

Nothing special about the food.
Extremely rude staff. They don't really care about anything and it seems like you are just bothering them.
Wanted to use the bathroom: had to pay 30cents! Went to the bar to confirm and they told me it was "house policy" which I did not found normal at all considering we ate there - a quick google search shows that it is actually illegal to do so http://www.sdf75.fr/p2-12-1-cafe.html#toilettes
Maybe good for champagne parties but definitely not worth a stop otherwise - and make sure you have change as they "don't have any" if you attempt going to the toilets!
