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

Self service restaurant, bar & mountain clubbing

The Petite Cuisine restaurant is self-service and prices are really reasonable. This canteen-style eaterie too relies heavily on quality local produce. This area has been decorated by calligraphic artist Tarek Benaoum, allowing him and his designs to influence the space in the same way the food metamorphoses your plate. The meals are less formal, with more variety, and no concession made on the generosity of servings, or the quality and taste of the dishes. 

Located at the top of the La Daille bubble it is a great choice for lunch and apres ski for skiers and pedestrians alike! Accessible via the La Daille bubble, or if coming from Tignes via the Aeroski in Tignes Le Lac and taking the Tommessues piste down.

The food itself is excellent, freshly prepared, and it is obviously closely related to the Fruitière next door. There are plenty of appetising platters to choose from ranging from pizzas and soups to cooked meats and vegetable dishes. It is hard/impossible to find anything negative about the place.

As the La Folie Douce is right next door, many people often end up staying on for Apres Ski. It is a great place to end your day on the slopes, being only a short slide from La Daille or with access to the bubble - remember 'Don't drink and slide'!

It is really during the afternoons and on the warmest days that La Folie goes 'mad' and you get the impression MTV might be filming. Live music is played on the terrace from around 14:00 onwards with beer on tap, and you will find people dancing on the table-tops until after the lifts have closed. The musicians are the same as those from Cafe Face in town. Even if the weather has closed in there are large TV screens indoors showing sporting events.

Open daily during winter and summer seasons 09:00 - 17:00
