“Brilliant lunch stop”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is a must for anyone skiing in the Vallandry valley. It's easy to find, just bear left before you get to the bottom of the Peisey lift and follow the east track to the door.
Lovely welcoming atmosphere and great food, in particular the salads and soups are fab. Good veggie options! Prices are very reasonable for 'on the mountain'.

“Lovely little restaurant”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We have eaten at La Vache on a number of occasions in the winter season and would certainly recommend it. The food is of excellent quality and is reasonably priced. There is a good selection of Savoyarde along with traditional French cuisine with an English slant.

Make sure you choose the right night, as it will either be packed out or as dead as a dodo!

The Dart Board can be really good fun if you combine playing with forfeit shots of the Chilli Genepi!!

“Go back time after time”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We first went to La Vache on our chalet host's day off in Jan 2012 while skiing, food and service was excellent. So we went back for lunch before we left. Having just got back from our second trip to Peisey and another two trips to La Vache the service, food, ambiance is as good as ever. Recommend booking for evening meals, especially for big parties as was fully booked 3 days before we ate. They are happy to change dishes to suit taste - we asked for our burgers to be spiced up and chef was more than happy to oblige. Sometimes they run out of dishes early, but the great selection makes up for that. Recommend the starters, regional dishes and burgers. Oh, and the cocktails.

“Great little cow inspired restaurant, just off the slopes”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great atmosphere. Fairy lights all round and lots of little cows and black and white curtains and cushions. They specialise in Savoie dishes such as fondues and raclettes but we had a burger and tartiflette. The portions were huge - great if you like a lot to eat but rather too much for us and a bit offputting.

Also good for an apres-ski drink.

Best to book, especially on chalet host;s night off.

“A hidden treasure”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We discovered La Vache on a wet day needing a hot cup of coffee. They welcomed nine of us and despite our bedraggled state gave us excellent service. This restaurant/chalet was alpine in character with a wood burner and tame cat. We were so impressed we went back the next day for lunch. This was superb with great service and food. If you are skiing in Les Arcs/Peisey make a point of visiting La Vache.
