Great for children but not much space for buggies, very relaxed atmosphere. The outside seating is good when it is sunny!

We've been eating here for the last four years , when visiting Val d'Isere and can highly recommend the place. The service is excellent, you are never rushed at all and the staff are very pleasant. The food, mainly galettes, crepes and other delicious desserts are very reasonably priced; they also serve quality wines and spirits. There is an outside... More

I stumbled upon this bistro while wandering around in the town of Val D'Isere looking for a lunch spot. It is traditional yet modern at the same time. The bar seats are actually bicycle seats! Some ski school instructors and their pupils as well as other travelers created a busy, but friendly atmosphere. The crowd is mostly french, but the... More

After a long day travelling from London, we stopped here for a late lunch: a deliciously simple croque monsieur and a glass of Pinot Noir. It was a brilliant introduction to Val d'Isere - in addition to the lovely food, the staff were super friendly and the place was very atmospheric!

This small but charming place situated right in center of Val d'Isere made me feel like I was in my favorite pub at home surrounded by my friends. Conveniently located in the center, it has this air of a neighborhood pub where friends get together after a day of skiing and meet the well acquainted hosts. Big bright windows, comfortable...
