Chalets des 2 Ours
+33 4 79 01 14 09
Located on the Blanchot run in the Boismint sectors. The restaurant has a beautiful sun terrace with excellent views, where you can bask in the sun whilst you enjoy your leisurely lunch or quick snack. It does tend to get rather busy on days when the sun is shining, so it is worth booking a table.
Chalets des 2 Lacs
+33 4 79 00 28 54
Known for a being one of the best slopeside restaurants in Val Thorens, Chalet des 2 Lacs is located at the top of the 2 Lacs chairlift, making it easily accessible to all levels of skier. It is a pretty chalet-style building with a huge sun terrace, which has panoramic views of the valley.
They serve excellent hearty cuisine in generous portions; their menu includes a selection of pizzas, steaks, tartiflette and fondues.
Chez Pepe Nicolas
+33 6 09 45 28 35
We almost feel guilty for telling you about this one. But how could we not when it’s this good. A fantastic mix of the rustic and kitsch – don’t tell them we said that.
You’ll find the restaurants on the Red La Chasse run that joins the blue Boulevard Cumin, or you can get a minibus from the resort. (it’s heading toward Les Menuires from Val Thorens)
You can’t be disappointed in the incredible food or the friendly service – a real must-try for any special occasions (as well as for casual lunches)
Three cosy sections make up the interiors with the Dairy being full of (as you may guess) relics from the old dairy, complete with a milk bottle chandelier and coat rack pedestals.
Le Grange is covered in hay bales in the centre of the restaurant, a great spot for drinks and finally the newest addition in the Cave. Vaulted ceilings dug into the rock of the pastures. Cosy and intimate with soft lighting and wood-burning stove.
