Over priced for poor food had to change my meal twice, worst Lamb i have ever had, over-cooked and charred, twice.

A little bit out of the way but really worth the effort this place changed hands a few years ago and the new owners have maintained a great standard. The menu is different from what you see in most Alpine restaurants and the dishes are executed very well. Try cocotte to start, the planche d'Arcelle main and the cafe gourmand... More

Amazing restaurant at the bottom of the piste, lovely deco, friendly staff and great food. The best in Les Arcs in my opinion. Kids really enjoyed their risotto and leg of lamb and we were all happy. If you have a smaller child, they can prepare burger and chips. I had the best starter ever, cocotte. Can't wait to go... More

Seven of us pre-booked for a late lunch whilst skiing. Very nice lay-out and homely atmosphere, although the smell of cooked cheese was quite over-powering. Took 15 minutes to get menus and another 15 minutes to give our order. 400g "individual" steaks turned out to have a sizeable bone and were quite fatty, whereas the 300g lunchtime special was straight...

This was one of my favourite restaurants at the foot of the pistes which I have visited several times over the years. The food was exquisite, and it retains al its charm, with an attentive host. One other table was occupied. But not a skier in it at midday, where were they all. It may be that this was an... More

After 8 days skiing and eating all over Les Arcs, we can say without equivocation that l'Arcelle is the best on or off the mountain. Superb food, excellent service, great hospitality and delightful setting. If you do nothing else on your trip to Les Arcs, eat at L'Arcelle at least once.

After 6 or 7 winters spent in Les Arcs, we are always delighted to return to l'Arcelle. Nicely located close to the slopes, this restaurant remains the best at 1600 and certainly in Les Arcs. The boss is here 24/7, makes sure everything is well organized and the entire staff is upscale. The food is traditional and authentic. Very good... More

An alpine chalet restaurant adjacent to Arcs 1600, just off the piste, with rustic decor, slightly eccentric points of focus and comfortable furnishings to a high standard. Easy to ski to/from and just a short level walk from Arc 1600 village. For fine days there is an extensive outside seating area, but being a little chilly we ate inside. An... More

The staff here is great, they are nice and attentive, busy, great atmosphere, and great food and wine selection. The right kind of place to warm up after a day on the slopes.

Chic restaurant on side of ski slope. Comfortable for all, rugs and sheepskins etc. Whilst slightly expensive (you are half way to the top of the mountain ) the views more than make up for this. Blowout on an Irish coffee, superb!
