Visitor comments

  • "We had a lovely evening at L'Arolay - lovely Savoir-faire and feel. The service was great, the atmosphere was warm, rustic and inviting, the quality of the food was very good and all for a very reasonable price considering it's location. We would have eaten there more than once if there had been availability. I recommend booking in advance." - Trip Advisor
  • "Great situation and great food. We try to make the trip up to Le Fornet every year for something rustique or regional. We have never been disappointed. Fondue, tartiflette, brasserade. Etc. Great local wines. Well worth adding to your ski holiday itinerary." - Trip Advisor
  • "A bit hard to find, but once you do, it's worth it. Cozy restaurant with great views, interesting menu, reasonable prices, friendly service. The blueberry tart was to die for, and their cappuccinos are quite beautiful." - Trip Advisor
