Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We've stayed and eaten at Black Diamond for years... great new menu with great options - healthy and delicious fare for a French ski resort. Service is very professional and the log fires are so lovely. We loved having a cocktail by the fire before...dinner and coffee by the fire afterwards.More

When we stay at BDL the visit to the restaurant is always a highlight and this time didn’t disappoint. Even though it was a last minute booking they squeezed out large group in. The food was top notch and service unmatched. Then to top it...all off they brought out a wonderful cake for our daughter in law’s birthday. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thanks Harry for keeping my wine topped up and for the ladies Espresso Martinis.More

Ate here with a party of 5. The place is lovely and well done out with a lot of thought. However.. the food was mediocre at best, tasted like had been thawed and reheated. Vegetarian option was not great either. This we could have coped...with but to be asked after 45 minutes could we please move on from the table so they could clear it,(in a very nice way!) was a bit much-we still had wine that we hadn't finished. If they would have said they had mixed up bookings and would we mind moving to the sofas, we would have been understanding. It just felt rude and sadly, we won't be returning. The staff were very young so maybe some extra training would be helpful.More

Had the pleasure of staying in the Black Diamond Lodge recently, )please see my separate review for BDL on my home page) and thought we'd give the cuisine a try out in the in-house restaurant. They had only just changed the menu and we liked...what we read on the Chalk Board presented to us while we waited by the huge open fire in the lunge area. The service staff were very presentable, professional and friendly, and before long, we had ordered and were seated and a lovely bottle of house red ( only 15€ wow ) was brought and poured into our glasses. We were also brought a plate of canapes but for the life of me, I cannot remember what they were but DO remember that they were very tasty.. Spanish Prawns and Chicken Ballotine were our 1st courses - Well presented and with all the right flavours, especially the Paella style risotto, which as any professional chef knows, isnt always that easy to get right. Its WAS spot on.. !! Sirloin Steak and Cod Curry - The steak was an amazingly high quality cut of meat and was cooked medium rare, to perfection. The COD was also cooked well presented nicely, and the rice was great. I had one minor issue with the curry sauce though. Just a slight after taste but a very simple mistake and probably the curry leaves used to make the sauce may have been left in when blended.. THATS JUST ME BEING VERY PICKY THOUGH.. ;) The MEAL was great and the PUDDINGS?? OMW.. Fresh, sticky, caramely, sweet, ALL the things you NEED in a good desert. As the title says.. This was a "Box Ticker" of an evening and look forward to going back next season x xMore

We had a delicious meal at Black Diamond, having dined here previously last season it once again lived up to our expectations. The food was first class and beautifully presented. The stuffed chicken was cooked beautifully as were all three steaks, one of each rare,...medium and well done. Black Diamond has a lovely ambience with just the right level of background music.
