French Restaurants

La Grange: Located opposite the lift pass office in the main square, is a traditional French restaurant offering fondue and raclette as their specialities. Other dishes include steaks, snails and pasta dishes.

La Porte d’à Côté: Opposite Marché U it's well worth a look, but do book ahead as it is very popular.

Le Trappeur: Popular and highly rated restaurant across the road from Carrefour supermarket. Expect traditional mountain food and friendly service.

Crêpes a Go Go: Sample a French delicacy that we Brits only seem to get round to making once a year. Tuck into a tasty pancake on the sunny terrace or take refuge in the cosy ‘olde worlde’ bar with a choice of beers on tap.

Le Cellier: Near the Place de Venosc specialising in meats grilled on an open wood fire in the middle of the restaurant.

Doumé: Just next door it serves a quirky variety of local and French dishes including a wild boar stew and a charcoal heated raclette, as well as pizzas from their wood fired oven.

Grain du Sel: Has a varied menu and is a good place to try steak tartare (raw minced steak with egg, onion, herbs and spices) if you are feeling brave.

Italian & Pizza Restaurants

With Les Deux Alpes seeing a lot of Italian visitors, you don’t have to look far to find a good pizza.

Tribeca: At the beginning of the town, beside the Information Point, offers an extensive pizza menu, all cooked in their wood fired pizza oven, as well as steaks, fondues and local specialties.

Vetrata: On the main street, specialises in pizza, pasta and Italian dishes.

Chez Angelo: Further along, probably the smallest restaurant in Les Deux Alpes, with only one table inside and a couple on the pavement. It is therefore most popular for take-away pizzas! Despite its size, it still manages to offer a wide range of real Italian dishes.

Il Caminetta: On the Place de Venosc is a great little Italian restaurant tucked into a corner. The service is always friendly and their home-made fresh pasta is not to be missed.

Many of the local French restaurants also do good pizza and pasta, and there are some good pizza takeaways mentioned below in the takeaway section.

Michelin-Starred Restaurants

Le P’tit Polyte at Chalet Mounier: Les 2 Alpes has one Michelin starred restaurant, it's located opposite the bowling alley at the Venosc end of town, and is a truly unique restaurant. There is an à la carte menu, but a set menu (with five, seven or even nine courses) is a must for the full experience. Although expensive, Le P'tit Polyte is a perfect place for a treat. In the summer you are welcome to dine on the terrace or beside the pool. Booking at the start of the week is essential.

Le Raisin d'Ours: On Avenue de la Muzelle.

L’Entracte: On the Rue Des Vikings holds the Michelin Bib Gourmand for its excellent modern French cuisine.

Le Diable au Coeur: At the summit of the Diable ski lift this place is recommended by the Michelin reviewers for food that they describe as "deliciously and carefully prepared, it stylishly combines tradition and regional specialities" - a nice change to the usual baguette and chips on the mountain!

Pubs & Gastropubs

Smithy's Tavern: One of the most popular bar-restaurants in town with large wooden tables and comfy alcoves that are ideal for families or group outings. Above the bar is the char-grill restaurant, which is renowned for serving up large portions. The menu is a mix of pub food and Tex-Mex with decent vegetarian and children’s options.

The Spot: A relative newcomer to the resort, it has established itself as a lively bar and restaurant, popular with locals and visitors alike. A unique feature is the ‘build your own burger’ menu, with the best burger design of the week winning a free meal. Steaks, fish, tapas, pizza and vegetarian meals complete the menu.

Vegetarian Restaurants

Most local restaurants will offer something for vegetarians but expect it to be cheese, cheese and more cheese! Cheese fondue, raclette, pizza and salads are all widely available but there might not be many other options. You will get a bigger choice of veggie friendly food in the more English restaurants – Smithys, Le Saloon and The Spot.
