Description: In the middle of the resort, just a few steps from Maison de Val Thorens, you will find La Face Ouest. With easy access for both skiers and walkers, a beautiful, south-facing terrace and panoramic view, it is the perfect place, at any hour of the day, to try the succulent pizzas, club sandwiches and delicious, homemade pastries on offer. At midday and the evening, the cosy restaurant also serves inventive and generous dishes that make use of fresh local products and traditional flavours. To compliment these pleasures, excellent French wines are available.

Having lived in Rome for 13 years, we know what we are talking about when it comes to good pizza!! The pizza at Face West was most definitely the best pizza we have had outside of Italy! Very authentic, thin crisp pizza base and a choice of approx 20 pizzas. A very popular restaurant, but the staff are efficient in getting you seated as quickly as possible and service is very prompt. Planning to again on our last evening!

We ate here twice on our trip and I have to say they make the most amazing pizzas every. I tried a meat one and then the seafood one. The seafood one was to die for. Service is fantastic and very friendly and is so reasonably priced. It only cost us 30 euros per head in the evening for a large meal and wine. Definitely go and visit this restaurant and have a pizza. You won't be sorry!

Put off by the high prices of other restaurants we were not put off when taking a gander at the menu of this establishment. On first arrival we were fearful our party would not be able to accommodated, however these worries were unfounded. The decor was of a rustic, mountainous feel with warmth and the atmosphere was simply superb. The service was attentive, friendly and helpful with only problems not solutions on offer
The food was delightful with the lamb on the shank falling off the bone like dominoes on a table. The burger did the job and the beef tartar was excellently cooked to just the right heat.
Just when we thought things could not get better we were proved wrong, the desserts were like folie douce. The apple pie and profiteroles were the best thing we'd ever had and the ice cream hit the spot also. All in all an evening beyond our wildest dreams.

If you are looking for easygoing, lively, friendly place - this is an option for you. Always busy, but staff is very efficient and you will get your meal quickly. Good soups (carrots with cumin mhhhm...) and daily menu, but the best choice is pizza - delicious and very italian. Nice desserts. Wanderful views on the outside terrace.

I've been calling in at this restaurant for about 10 years, whenever I'm in Val T at lunchtime. In fact, we deliberately time our skiing so that we can have lunch there. Why, when there are dozens of restaurants available?Simple. this is a very well managed restaurant with excellent staff, service and food to match. You really do have to try the pizzas because they're amongst the best I've had anywhere, including Italy. Wafer-thin crusts and delicious toppings. Once tried, you'll come back again, as I and my friends do.

Also, this time we ate there once in the evening (as well as twice at lunchtime). Again, the place was packed out and rightly so. This is a high quality restaurant and the quality of food and service that you receive is remarkable value if you're from the UK. It has a limited menu but is all the better for that. Just try one of the steaks.

Highly recommended.
