Would drop in for coffee whilst skiing. didn't have any food but saw the food been served up to other guests and would have to say they all look delicious. Great atmosphere and was very relaxed taking in the ambience and locality. Well worth a visit, friendly service and easy access

Have visited for morning coffee or hot chocolate whilst skiing, and a nice friendly place. On several trips, we have made the trip specially down to Communailles just to visit for their food too, great local cuisine.

Excellent restaurant at foot of Communailles poma. Great local fare with friendly and efficient service. Best to book if you want outside terrace but great ambience inside in any case.

Been here several times when we walk in the area in summer. Never made a reservation and have always been accommodated (wt dog). Food is lovely and comes pretty quick considering its busy and food dished up out of a tiny kitchen. Service great too. No complaints and will definitely go again.

First of all, the view on the Mont Blanc is fantastic. It is a tiny and cosy location not easy to find but worth visiting. In the summer, you can park your car and can have a walk up and back to Le Bettex and then enjoy some of the specialties like the "assiette du randonneur" with the gratin dauphinois.... More

6 arrived on a sunny day to be met by very welcoming staff. Given a nice table with wonderful view of snow topped peaks. A beer later we were served with omelettes, a wonderful burger, and pasta. All very tasty. Loos downstairs adjacent to the kitchen with a few chips dropped on the stairs. Apart from that highly recommended.

we arrived around 13:30 - the restaurant was busy but we found seats & were happy to wait - we spoke with the waiter, who said "une moment" and then studiously ignorred us - every few minutes he'd look our way and repeat "une moment" - then ignore us some more. Eventually after 30+ minutes without even a menu or... More

I had not been to this restaurant for many years but booked recently as we had a friend staying who did not ski but wanted to meet for lunch on the slopes. He was able to drive there and park very close by and we could ski right up to the door. It was busy and we had booked. They... More

Stumbled upon this peach when we snowboarded down the les communales blue run. As soon as you get to the bottom, it's there. It was busy all the time we were there so I recommend you book just like any other restaurant. There's limited seats and space so don't be surprised if they say they can't feed you. Some may...

I love this place. It's tiny but the food and staff are just fantastic. It's just on the piste in the winter and at the end of a lovely walk from Bettex in the summer.
