The La Coeur de Vall gives you nothing short of excellent French dining but with a modern twist. Centrally located in the village next to Sherpa (the local supermarket), there’s an enticing terrace for lunch complete with a view that looks down the valley. The bright and modern dining room here is one of the most popular places to get something to eat, so atmosphere is a sure bet, but so is having to book a table. A special meal, that won’t disappoint!
L’Adress makes our list with ease, and you’ll see why when you visit. There’s superb pizza on offer, and a Savoyard menu too. L’Adress has some of the most impressive prices on the mountain, which, paired with its central location in the village beside the Vallandry lift, means you should definitely be paying this place a visit while you’re here!
