Amazing food, everything is extremely fresh, and perfectly cooked, serving is beautiful. Had burgers and monk fish, and it is close to the best I've ever had. I'd highly recommend it both for lunch and dinner.

La Pause restaurant is one of the only restaurants with well spaced tables (most are very packed tightly due to lack of space on the mountain side). The waiting staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional. The food is amazing quality (small portions but these were perfect for our family), and price reasonable considering the quality. Restaurant is decorated very nicely... More

A delicious and very tasty meal. My husband had the scampi ravioli to start with, which I couldn't help tasting as it smelt so lovely. I had the artichoke soup, a tantalising hot and cold experience, and very light. Main course for me was Turbot, whilst my husband and daughter went for the Grandma's lamb shank stew. Each dish was...

From start to finish this was a great dining experience. From the wonderful service to the excellent quality of the food to the fabulous setting this was top class. A must for anybody visiting Val Thorens.

Very attentive, yet unobtrusive, service by pleasant & happy staff. I had the scampi / langoustine ravioli to start, followed by the lamb shank - both incredible, a wonderful bisque with the ravioli and scampi perfectly tender and succulent, as was the slow cooked lamb shank with gorgeous gravy. And the lemon meringue pie (deconstructed) was the perfect ending! A... More

Excellent menu which is extremely well priced. 4 of us ate with starters, mains and desserts all fantastic. Would 100% recommend and come back - might need to book in peak times to be safe.

If you are fed up with just fuel food this place makes a nice alternative. Some genuinely higher end cuisine like rabbit veal and fish dishes. More expensive but sensibly so and with some great desserts. Lovely room with lots of spaces which work to keep noise down and a great ambience.

Cozy atmosphere, good French food. Wine is a bit overpriced. But an excellent alternative to all the restaurants that offer nothing but the boring fondue or raclette.

I've an appartment in Val Thorens and one of the problems with restaurants there is that they tend to be very different year on year as the staff are seasonal and can change. So i rarely do reviews there. However, i've just had two of the best meals i've had in Val Thorens there. There were three of us and... More
