For a hotel the food choice and helping size was poor, not to mention the price. We went there with high expectations and wasn't too concerned about price until we saw the menu. The feature dish of various stews came out on a plastic plate split into thirds. Something that you would give primary school children or prisoners.

Dear Sambre01, we read your review with disappointment and we thought that maybe you were writing about another restaurant but not ours. As you can easily see from other pictures taken by restaurant guests, the plate for various stews (carbonada, sausages and mushrooms) is a normal porcelain plate, as we don't have any plastic plate in our restaurant. I suggest... More

Conveniently located at the beginning of the pedestrian zone, we've been here for an aperitif with friends. The bar is in the cellar of a hotel, so no look outside, kind of oppressive atmosphere. It's a pity, the drinks are ok and the wine list really interesting. Not the cheapest in Courmayeur.

In particular your friends and you asked for an aperitif on saturday evening (from 18.00 to 21.00) and our restaurant hall Le miroir was fully booked.

Dear Giles_deQ, your review is very essential, but it explains, I think, the main idea: if you dine at our restaurant you will come again and again. We are very happy for this and we would like to know what you appreciated most from our menu. Best regards Giorgia Perrod More

We found this restaurant by chance on a Friday evening. Our initial waiter didn't speak much English and it did take quite a while to get a drink, however another waitress spoke good English and was both friendly and helpful. There was also a sommelier at hand to advise on wine. We were given a delicious complimentary appetiser which was... More

En-route to the Mont Blanc tunnel and faced with a big queue we decided to stop off in Courmayeur for a spot of lunch before pressing onwards. Due to the wet weather we took a chance on the nearest nice looking place to where we had parked the car. The service was so friendly and welcoming, as well as being... More

We were staying in the hotel so we had some misgivings about eating in what might have been the hotel dining room, but this was a separate affair tucked away in the basement and it was lovely. The food was very nice but it was some sort of boil in the bag (the fact that they can't serve the steak... More

Giorgia P, Responsabile relazioni pubbliche at Al Torchio, responded to this review

Dear Cookiemon, thank you very much for your visit and the nice comments. The "boil in the bag thing" is actually a cooking technique called "low temperature sous-vide vacuum cooking". The items cooked with this technique result tender wiyhout adding extra-condiments and fat. Please, have a look on this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sous-vide. Hope to see you again, best regards Giorgia Perrod More

Had a very pleasant meal here. Service friendly and attentive. Translation of menu into english provides some entertainment. I had the deer salad and then cured pig...... nice, local well-presented dishes, washed down with some Val d'Aosta wine. Enjoyed it.

Need to book as very popular with locals. Great simple well cooked food using the quality of ingredients and preparation to do the talking. Limited menu with more choices at weekend. Good choice of wines by the glass price at 3.5 to 4.5 euros. Had eight days in Courmayeur and this was our favourite place , just good honest food... More

Agree with most reviews below! A relatively small place, tucked away just down the main street in Courmayeur, so be sure to make a reservation, for any night of the week. Food is really good, simple, authentic, very Italian, very affordable, and large portions, for those of you with a big appetite! A simple decor, like a nice informal enoteca!... More
