Description: Up there 1650 m of altitude, during the snow season, on the slopes of Plaine-Dranse and the ski link Châtel-Avoriaz, Nathalie will host you for your gourmet lunch break. Change of scenery in the heart of the Portes-du-Soleil, in an typical alpine village perched in the mountain with its lovely chapel against the rock. Formerly alpine chalet and popular base camp today at the beginning of "Rochassons-Express" chairlift to Avoriaz, Le Bois Prin is easily accessible by "Pierre-Longue" chairlift to all skiers beginners or experienced, but also for pedestrians contemplative. In an authentic decor of wood and stone, warmed by a traditional stove, you will enjoy the different flavors of Savoie and Val d'Abondance, or originality of a seasonal cuisine, and different Chef's suggestions. Two floors with a warm and friendly atmosphere to savor a wine or a hot chocolate after skiing and pastries for the small hollows. With nice weather, terrace facing the summit of Mont-de-Grange offers you an exceptional moment of relaxation. Sit in deck chairs and you will enjoy the sweetness of the afternoon until the close of slopes. See you soon !

“The best steak frites! Le meilleur steak frites!”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

I always head for the bois prin when I want steak frites, Not only is it superbly cooked (rare /saignant) but the value for money in a mountain restaurant is excellent. The location is superb and when the sun is shining it is realy nice to sit outside. Service is top quality and the owner is always friendly. they do a daily special too which has never disappointed with a pichet of wine at a reasonable price. My favorites from the menu are steak-frites, le encas savoyard for a lighter snack ( really nicely presented ) and the tarte ecureuil (nuts not squirrel!). You don't get much better from my experience in the high mountain restaurants at a price that is really fair and affordable.

Avoid going in around 13.00 as it can be very busy and cramped - after 14.00 is more relaxed and then you can stay the afternoon after a hard morning of skiing... one run down after a nice lunch !
