La Petite Cuisine Restaurant

Canteen-style restaurant in the famous La Folie Douce mountain après-ski hotspot

featured in Restaurants Updated

La Petite Cuisine is La Folie Douce's gourmet-quality, canteen-style restaurant. They serve a perfect mix of high-class local cuisine in a friendly, family atmosphere.

Located at the top of the La Daille bubble, it is a great choice for lunch for skiers and pedestrians alike! Their wholesome menu includes regional favourites made with local produce and lovingly prepared in the knowing ways of yesteryear. Think generous servings of salad, pizza, quiche, grilled meat, pasta and homemade desserts, as well as daily specials (including a soup and a 'plat du jour').

La Petite Cuisine's magical mix of ancient and modern is reflected in the wall décor made by celebrated artist Tarek Benaoum, which has transformed the traditional wood cabin interior into a contemporary, cosy space. The informal seating and style, the no-concession ampleness of the servings and service (often by the chefs themselves!), are as tasteful and tasty as the dishes and their ingredients.

La Petite Cuisine is open daily from 12:00 to 17:00.

This is not the only restaurant available at La Folie Douce. Just next door, La Fruitière serves contemporary cuisine made by Chef Franck Mischler. At The Butcher Shop, on the sun terrace, you can enjoy a quick but tasty lunch; choose from burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, paninis, crepes, waffles and a lot more from 12:00 (take away available). For a mid-afternoon break, try Les Trois Caves, their very own wine bar serving delicious local cheeses and cigars.

After lunch, enjoy La Folie Douce's famous parties. Every day from 13:00, the best performers, dancers, musicians and DJs gather on the terrace of this clubbing hotspot for a cabaret show and, from 15:00, La Folie Douce turns into a club for the ultimate après-ski experience.


Accessible via the La Daille bubble. If you are coming from Tignes, you can get to La Petite Cuisine by taking the Aeroski lift in Tignes Le Lac and then skiing down the Tommeusses piste.
