A Guide to the Best Restaurants in Val d’Isère
As one of the finest ski resorts in the world, visitors to Val d’Isère deserve and expect the quality of their experience to be without parallel, both on and off the slopes. Eating out is no exception. From Michelin-starred fine dining to relaxed yet gourmet local cuisine, the cream of Val d’Isère’s restaurants are presented here.
Located within the resort of Val d’Isère and boasting no less than two Michelin stars, L’Atelier d’Edmond offers a bistro for lunch and a gourmet restaurant open in the evenings for fine dining that is nothing short of exquisite. All the flavours of the slopes are intermingled with expertly sourced ingredients, such as back of catfish with house-made gnocchi in a bouillon broth, accented with saffron sourced from the Maurienne Alpine Valley, or a simple yet beautifully realised dish of apricots with local fir tree buds.
Another resort option and replete with its own Michelin star, La Table de L’Ours is the jewel in the crown of the renowned five-star Hotel le Barmes de L’Ours. Robust flavours are handled with a delicate touch, evident in the blue lobster coupled with a Savoie wine thin jelly, or from the starter menu enjoy the foie gras paired with a light-as-air apple bubble and thin lace biscuit.
No après-ski dining guide to Val d’Isère would feel complete without a traditional Savoyard eatery. La Luge is the star of the show here, offering excellently prepared local fare, which promises calorific cuisine worth every mouthful. Their traditional Savoy-style fondue is made with three varieties of the finest French cheeses and is perfectly enhanced with white wine, while the braised meats are famously tender and melt in the mouth. Those with a sweet tooth should make room for dessert too – the Grand Marnier soufflé served with chocolate ice cream is particularly decadent.
Showered with accolades by locals and visitors alike, as well as being the recipient of multiple mountain restaurant awards, Le Signal has an arty, boutique feel with a menu that showcases the very best that the region has to offer. Situated right at the top of the Fornet cable car and with stunning 360 degree vies from its Signal Room rooftop, Le Signal is as much worth the ride up the mountain for the views, architecture and atmosphere as it is for the fresh and creative cuisine.
Finding and enjoying the best restaurants to replenish your appetite after a day on the slopes is a significant part of what makes every moment at the justly famous Val d’Isère resort count.
