Val d’Isère has a huge choice of restaurants, from the cheap and cheerful to exclusive & expensive, so you are sure to find somewhere to suit your taste and your pocket! It is recommended that you reserve your table in advance as many fill up quickly.

Below are listed a few suggestions. It is not by any means exhaustive
There are quite a few new options in town, we haven't tried as yet!

La Source (Formerly La Grand Ourse) The owner & staff have relocated to the Main Street and we are so very pleased. A great restaurant with a good range of food including a soup & salad bar. Try the house wine made by the owner himself. It's terrific!

The Fondue Factory With a huge 186 covers, this eclectic restaurant specialises in, you guessed it,  Fondue! This has replaced the much loved Perdrix Blanche and is proving popular. Right on the Main Street across from the bus station

Taverne d’Alsace Situated under the Kandahar hotel, this is another good restaurant and a personal favourite.

La Casserole La Casserole is renowned for its excellent local dishes in traditional surroundings. Fondue speciality. Has two sittings each evening.

Casa Scara Opposite the church in the old town, the Casa Scara offers good value and excellent pasta dishes in pleasant surroundings.  A good choice for vegetarians looking for a change from pizza!

Lodge Good value, and often full, The Lodge offers a varied menu including pizzas, steaks and local specialities. A favourite with the locals. Advance bookings recommended.   

Petit Danois Great full English breakfasts. In the evening eat from a varied menu, then join the fun in the attached bar till 1am!   

Bambou Tucked away in the gallery at the back of the Tourist Office square,  Bambou serves authentic Thai dishes and freshly made sushi.  On sunny days, they also serve food and drinks on the terrace in the square. 

Quiksilver/Roxy Café Great for a quick, cheap burger and chips.

Flash Pizza Good value pizzas from 10€, delivered to your door. Quirky, inexpensive and we love it.

Pizza N Love A popular choice at the other end of town with a small bar and seating area. offers eat in, take away or delivery. 

4 Seasons Situated within Bar Alexandra and Hotel Galise, this popular Euro - Asian themed cafe offers a welcome change of menu with some good value options. 

La Baraque This is a terrific bar/restaurant for a celebration with live music every night

Poya  A relatively new addition to resort we are yet to try. Of the higher budget, the portions are generous and apparently there is a tempting cocktail Happy Hour every evening

President In the Galerie des Cimes. Specialising in American fayre, ribs, burgers etc

1789 Val d’Isere’s legendary steak restaurant featuring savoyarde specialties and wood fire grilled meats. Don’t miss out on their signature Côte de Boeuf or order the day before for the delicious lamb. 1789 is a popular choice for groups and gets booked up quickly for both early and late sittings.  

La Gourmandine We love this friendly restaurant on the side of the piste.  With plenty of outside seating to catch the sun, this is a busy lunch spot with daily specials. In the evenings, they serve savoyarde specialities and some of the best gourmet burgers in town.

La Mourra For a special night out, the restaurant at the La Mourra Hotel Village is a real treat.  Serving Japanese and fusion cuisine you can feast on Salmon tartare, freshly rolled sushi, Black cod in Miso sauce or Wagyu beef.

Paolos Café Situated conveniently opposite the Rond Pont des Pistes bus stops Paolo’s is a casual Italian serving great Pizza, Pasta and Basta for lunch and dinner.  You might recognise some of the items on the menu from the old Tufs restaurant in La Daille, where the team moved from when it closed to make way for the new hotel.


Le Samovar Le Samovar offers a good choice of dishes, from pizza (including take-away) to local specialities.

Le Barillon Family run, this cosy restaurant offers Savorade fayre and a great steak!


L’Atelier d'Edmond/Maison Benoit Vidal Sadly has now closed.



All these restaurants are accessible for pedestrians

La Fruitiere, La Cucucina & The Folie Douce The famous Folie Douce offers live music and DJ's through the afternoon, La Fruitiere Restaurant serves top class lunches using local produce until 3.30pm. Great atmosphere with amazing views across the mountains.  The Folie Douce seems to expand every winter offering at least three quality restaurants. 

Gigi A new upmarket restaurant at the top of the Solaise bubble. Refuge de Solaise Hotel Not tried as yet. There is also a gazebo by the hotel offering pizzas and snacks. 

L'Etincelle Located at the base of the Solaise, a short walk from the edge of the piste. Offering a snack menu with hand-stretched wood-fired pizzas and crepes as well as grilled meats, salads and pasta dishes for those with more of an appetite. Open every lunchtime and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings only. Occasional live music

La Peau de Vache  I just love this place. Top of the Bellevarde chair lift so suitable for pedestrians. A fabulous atmosphere both inside and out. make sure you visit at least once!

La Cascade A short walk from the Le Fornet bubble is one of Val d'Iseres newer mountain restaurants from the same team that run Marmottes on the Bellevarde sector. This is a self-service lunch stop offering a great salad bar, soups, pastas, quiches, gilled meats and a daily special all at great value prices. We love their quiche of the day and enjoy their open fire on a cold day. 

Les Crozets Run by a longstanding local family, Les Crozets offers hearty lunches from their base beneath the Le Fornet cable car every day.  While not strictly a mountain restaurant, this is a favourite lunch stop for many and easily accessible for those not skiing.  Their large terrace catches the sun all afternoon as the days get longer where you can enjoy a tasty lunch from their extensive menu or just relax with a drink on one of their many outdoor sofas. For a bit of local nostalgia, don't miss the Classique du Villaret du Nial race every April where the locals don their vintage outfits (and skis!) to compete in a slalom race.
