Out of the 3 restaurants in the village this was the most friendly and the most cosy too. We tried to dine here a couple of times but kept finding it closed but we were lucky to get a table on our 3rd attempt. The guy behind the bar - we assume was the owner - was so friendly and... More

Popped in for a quick drink after a day ski-ing. The atmosphere was great and the staff very friendly. The food looked delicious and so we decided to take the rest of the family there. The following night we booked a table and were not disappointed. The service was great very attentive and the food, burgers and platters were fabulous.... More

We have been visiting La Grande Terche for many years. L'Avalanche this year with its new owner is a breath of fresh air in the village. The drinks are great, food excellent and the hospitality superb. Keep up the good work.

New owners producing a small simple menu of burgers and tapas. Delicious options on the burgers. Friendly efficient service. Great to have a different option. Good luck!

Really enjoyed our visit, been to St-Jean many times for skiing and never eaten here before. Great atmosphere, and good food, I hope the current owners keep the restaurant going and we will definitely be going to next year. If there was a little more choice on the menu for main meals I would give the review 5 stars.

Thank Farid H
