I wanted to Thank Rene and his team for a wonderful time and dinner at l'Authentique!! We were 23 and he has done a fantastic job at preparing the menu for us and helped selecting the right wines. He prepared a home made Financier for the desert that was outstanding. Everything was perfectly timed and we were all served perfectly... More

We were disappointed with our meal here. 4 of us dined and all agreed the meals lacked flavor. Service was not particularly noteworthy either. Efficient but not overly friendly. Unfortunately there was nothing special nor memorial about L'Authentique 😔

We opted for pasta / gnocchi choices as wanted a meal that wasn't too expensive. Minimal choice for vegetarian but the Gorgonzola gnocchi was delicious. Brilliant service, very attentive but not intrusive.

Venue ok. As a chef I would say menu is pretty standard. Look around area there is more better. Not sure if this place is trying to be 'authentic' Italian ot regional french but fails at both. Service is mediocre, prepare for a long wait. There are better places to visit while in Alpe 'dhuez.

We turned up without a reservation and was seated immediately. The waiter spoke very good English and the burger was to die for!! Would highly recommend to anyone but would advise reserving a table.

Decoration is nice, as expected from a mountain restaurant, food was OK, we had a cheese foundue and milanesa for the childrens, felt is little bit over priced but can't confirm this 3ppl 80 euros (without alcohol), just one plate p/p. Will check other options on my next visit to Alp d' Huez

Very nice meal in this very homely looking restaurant, service was a bit slow but it didn't matter as we were with friends so it felt good not to be rushed along. Would definitely recommend the cheese fondue! You are in France after all!

This is a lovely little find in the village. The service is a little nonchalant but not that you feel un-looked after. I would highly recommend the delicious fondue made with 5 cheeses, truly delicious. The fillet of beef was perfectly cooked although the stir fried vegetables were highly salted. The wedges and sauce served with the steak were divine.... More

carpaccio meats to start... Pretty good... Saltibocca was over powering and too rich... Tiramisu lacked alcohol and biscuits... Generally, our group of five returned 75% of our food and the restaurants response was to charge the full bill... Bad experience...
