We know how important refuelling is on a ski holiday and Tignes does not disappoint on the gastronomy front. Tignes isn’t all about the skiing - there are some fantastic restaurants serving a variety of dishes. From traditional Savoyard classics to pizzas, there is something to suit most tastes.
We have taken the time to list all the restaurants both on and off the mountain that we think are worth paying a visit, many of which we have had the pleasure of eating in.
La Toviere +33 4 79 06 35 05
This atmospheric chalet-style restaurant is situated at the top of the Tovière and serves traditional cuisine including fondues, raclettes and the famous tartiflette. If you are looking for a quick bite to eat before heading back onto the mountain La Tovière has a brilliant self-service section. You can either enjoy your lunch outside whilst basking in the sun, or on those cold days you can sit inside and take advantage of the welcoming fire place.
