A great place to reward yourself after the long ski from Val d’Isère. Fantastic rustic Savoyard dishes with friendly and efficient service at much more reasonable prices than the mountain restaurants in Val d’Isère. Keep an eye on the time so you don’t miss the lifts back from Tignes Le Lac to Val d’Isère.

A very short ski from the top of the Olympique gondola, the restaurant’s large sun terrace offers panoramic views over the whole of the Espace Killy. This self-service restaurant is a bit pricey, but it’s a good stop off point for a hot chocolate or vin chaud. The cosy interior provides refuge from the cold with several fireplaces. Although only a short walk from the lift, this restaurant is not really ideal for pedestrians as it’s quite a steep and busy slope down.

La Fruitière is considered to be one of the best table service restaurants on the mountain, although this may be based more on the atmosphere than the food, which has had mixed reviews in the past. It’s a great way to enjoy the atmosphere of the neighboring Folie Douce but with better food and a good wine list, albeit at a considerably higher price. It is fairly child friendly, although it can get a little noisy. The restaurant offers two sittings only during busy weeks, 12.30pm and 2.00pm.
