The Best Val Thorens Restaurants

Looking for the best Val Thorens restaurants this season?

We know how important refuelling is on a ski holiday and Val Thorens does not disappoint on the gastronomy front. Val Thorens isn’t all about the skiing they have some fantastic restaurants serving a variety of dishes; from traditional Savoyard classics through to pizzas, there is something to suit most tastes. We have taken the time to list a selection of restaurants both on and off the mountain that we think are worth paying a visit, many of which we have had the pleasure of eating in. Even if you are staying in a self catered apartment in the resort, treat yourself to a night out of eating and indulge in the local culinary delights.

Au Mazot

Au Mazot

Situated in the heart of Val Thorens this restaurant offers top quality traditional Savoyard cooking in charming rustic surroundings. The menu includes fondues, tartiflette, raclette and some excellent meat dishes.  It’s well worth making a reservation to sample local dishes in this typical alpine restaurant.

Base Camp

Base Camp - restaurants in Val Thorens

Part of the Hotel Pashmina, Le Base Camp is all about the vibe. They have regular live music over the dinner service creating a great atmosphere where the food and drinks are almost secondary.

A nice terrace for lunchtime visits and they do a hearty brunch here too!

For the evening meals enjoy the music and great food but perhaps be prepared for a slower style of service. If you can get over that, then you’re in for a great night.

Chamois D’Or

Chamois D’Or

Chamois D’Or can be found on the edge of the Rond Point piste in Val Thorens village. It is traditionally decorated with lots of wood and stone and also has a great sunny terrace. There is a large range of tasty dishes on offer including Savoyard specialities, delicious pizzas, pasta and meat courses, as well as daily lunch specials. Don’t forget to save room for one of their ice creams!

Le Maison

La Maison, Restaurants in Val Thorens

If you’re looking for pizza in town then this is the place to head. La Maison Val Thorens has a cosy feel with a large outdoor terrace. Food is well sourced with Aubrac cattle and plenty of truffles (if you like that sort of thing).

They do also have a few Savoyarde specialities such as raclette and fondues as well as a fairly extensive mains menu but it’s really all about the pizza and terrace.

The ‘Savoyarda’ is a cheesy delight, pretty much tartiflette on a pizza – beat that. But there are plenty to choose from.

And we’re not entirely sure where the ski resort obsession with polar bears came from, but, they’re all over the walls here as well. Go Figure.

John’s American

  +33 4 79 00 05 15

John’s American
This is a Scandinavian-run American-style tex-mex restaurant located in the heart of Val Thorens and serving excellent burgers, spare ribs, steaks, fajitas and more! The restaurant is small and cosy with welcoming service. It’s a great place to go if you are looking for an alternative to alpine cuisine.

Fitz Roy

Fitz Roy

The Fitz Roy is a 5-star hotel in Val Thorens whose restaurant is reputed to be one of the best places to eat in Val Thorens. Fine dining is combined with a carefully selected wine offering and the opportunity to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding slopes and summits.

Plus if you eat out on the terrace it comes complete with the fluffy chair covers, great views and there’s an open fire grill at lunchtime. Very photogenic!

The chef is driven by a passion for flavours and ingredients and concocts a variety of beautiful dishes based on the best of seasonal produce.
