Lovely, traditional savoyard lunch spot. Highly recommended for food and atmosphere and if I had finished skiing early and I just wanted to have a late lunch and chill for the afternoon it would be ideal. However, two hours for a group of 10 to have lunch (when the restaurant is not full) is not acceptable, when they must know... More

Amazing restaurant and excellent value for 3 courses plus unlimited wine (40 euros pp). We were so impressed with our first visit for 4 people we took the whole family for Xmas dinner. They serve fondues, raclettes, steaks etc. Food was fantastic. Best creme brûlée ever had. Wine was perfectly drinkable and on tap. The service was sublime, very impressed.... More

We visited l'arolay during our stay in val d'isere and i must admit the dinner was one of the best we have ever experienced. The food is amazing, the staff extremely friendly and the ambiance very adequate. If you're staying there, don't think twice about missing out this gorgeous experience. The plave is 5 minutes away from the center and... More

I love L'arolay. They serve until late which is great and there food is really good. They do a lot of set menu offers which usually include unlimited wine which is great value! Jump on the bus as its really easy and they will help you get back too :)

Nice and cosy place in a picturesque chalet. The service was good but the food really disappointing: taste less charcuterie, chewy meat and a poor wines list. Used to be good but well overrated these days, and expensive. For tourists only.

The restaurant is really nice and the steak is very good quality meat and delicious. You can cook the steak at the table yourself and cook it exactly how u like it!! The pudding is delicious and also looks stunning!! It is very good value for money and the steak is worth every penny!! 😀😄

Went with a group of friends and kids. Total 11 guests that were all very pleased with the dinner. We had a three course menu with Raclette and Fondue beef among the main courses. Vine was included in the price which was only 39 EUR per person. The Raclette and Beef Fondue were excellent. The ambiance in the place is... More

Went here with 2 friend this week and was impressed. I would advise you book as it get busy. Got the bus from central Val D'isere and it's about 10 mins away. The staff are welcoming and friendly and it's a warm and cosy restaurant which is excellent value for money. We all opted for the set menu of 39... More
