Beautiful place, excellent food, service was better than most mountain restaurants, and a great sun-terrace that beckons you to linger. The perfect on-mountain lunch experience.

We enjoyed our lunch at L'Edelweiss. My favorite part was probably hanging out in the outside lounge area, but the indoor areas were also perfectly fine. The food was good. But overall, I have mixed feelings about the place. If this restaurant wasn't so hyped up, I would say that the menu and the food was perfectly good. But given... More

It was absolutely heaving but as always we felt well looked after. The food was excellent. I had the Terrine of Foie Gras followed by the Fillet Steak. Simple and tasty. Portions could have been smaller but not complaining as excellent food. We will go back at least once every year we come to Val.

Really enjoyed visiting this bar for afternoon drinks actually on the slopes. Staff are very welcoming and it's great to sit inside and watch skiers go by , or sit indoors in a lively Alpine atmosphere. Worth a visit

We only had a few drinks here but the place is lovely. Greeted by a violin player it was an idyllic setting. The staff were lovely and the facilities better than most. Food looked amazing but we didn't eat here. Don't take the black run if you think this is a shortcut to the bar... it isn't and the black... More

Food was excellent and the views even better. This restaurant is best enjoyed on a sunny day when you can sit outside with a beer and enjoy the surroundings. Thankfully only a short ski to Le Fornet so buses back to Val d'Isere are easily achieved.

Mid way down the blue run into fornet. Excellent views and good hearty tasty food. The cafe gourmand is a core with a selection of small excellent puddings. Don't make the mistake I made and order that after pudding. I practically had to roll home afterwards!

Great restaurant skiing down towards la Fornet. The slope coming in is supposed to be blue but it's definitely more like a red but beautiful ,the scenery is gorgeous. Make sure you call before to book a table since they are almost always very busy. We had the grilled entrecote and the dish of the day which was the sausage... More

Visited Edelweiss this week with my partner and our friends. Not the easiest route down, billed a blue but quite tricky in places. The restaurant seem to do 2 sittings, 12.15 and 2pm and it's advisable to book. The setting is very idilic, beautiful views down to Fornet and the mountains surrounding you. We were offered inside or outside but... More

The Edelweiss has a great location with a very nice overview Le forget. It is situated near the bottom of the piste of le Fornet We have enjoyed a exquisite traditional french lunch outside on terrace. It's advisable to make a reservation in advance. Because there are a limited number of places and it can be fairly quick fully booked.
