Near the centre of town, just up the hill from Martin sports and the (only) pharmacy.
In ski season it is very popular so book in advance; it is also a good rendezvous point for groups after a day on piste for a quiet beer, local alcohol (especially if it has been a cold day) such as the genepi. The Vin Chaud is also excellent.
The decor is rustic - as the name suggests a cow-shed conversion - but all very tastefully done. The conversion hides the modern facilities for food and drink.
Prices are reasonable, very much so bearing in mind that it is in the middle of a busy village ski resort.
Choice is typical of the style - charcuterie and cheese, lasagne, raclettes, fondues, gallettes (savoury pancakes with lots of fillings incl cheese, onion, ham, potato etc, there are sensible choices but you can mix anything on the menu.
I have not asked, but I suspect there are no chips...
The service lacks the usual ski-resort unhelpfulness. The waiting staff are patient, friendly and happy to help and advise, and all is overseen by the owner who is there 95% of opening hours running it all from behind the bar.
Have eaten there a dozen times over the years, and have always enjoyed it whether with friends or kids.
