La Folie Douce - La Petite Cuisine Restaurant, Val d'Isere

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

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 11:30 to 15:30.

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 La Cave, their very own wine bar serving delicious local cheeses.

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.


Visitor comments

  • "Excellent food and drinks with an excellent - and wonderfully camp - open-air burlesque cabaret, on the piste. We (family with older teens) went for lunch twice and had a great time." - Trip Advisor
  • "We ate here one lunchtime and found the quality of food to be surprisingly pretty good. There was a very good selection of food available and plenty of tables both inside and outside. We have been here for drinks on several previous occasions and the atmosphere is always rocking in the late afternoon." - Trip Advisor
  • "Had lunch here and all food was amazing! Dancers were very entertaining and the sleeping bag coats topped it off!" - Trip Advisor
