Reviewed 2 February 2014

My husband and I just returned from a one-week vacation in Courchevel. For dinner one evening, we went to the village of Le Praz. We had pre-dinner drinks at Le cave des lys. It was lovely. The bar/restaurant consists of a small wine cave with domed stone ceiling and walls. Seating is scattered about in little nooks and crannies by old wine barrels, under the columns etc. The place is very tightly packed. If you plan on eating there, reservations will be essential. The wines by the glass are mostly but not exclusively local Savoyard wines ( but do include ie. a burgundy in the red category.) They are all reasonably priced from around 3.50 euro to 5.50 euro per glass. The selection of wines by the bottle (mostly, if not exclusively French) is outstanding.

The true value is in the food prices however. Toast with foie gras is 6 euro, compared to 28 euro in Courchevel 1650 and much more than that in 1850. A plate of pata negra ham (generally considered among the best cured hams in the world) runs about 10 euro per plate.

The service is very friendly. The clientele however was exclusively English when we were there.
