La Folie Douce Fruitiere Restaurant, Val d'Isere - Bellevarde

Popular efficient gourmet mountain restaurant at the top of the Daille bubble

Thoroughly impressing; this mountain restaurant has surpassed many others with regards to atmosphere and quality. The food is fantastic for no-nonsense classic replenishment, whether you are tempted by huge bowls of fresh pasta, grilled steaks, or the great wedges of chocolate cake.

Even the bread is good and the salads are tossed together from fresh herb leaves - without being drenched in white mayonnaise sauce which completely bucks the trend of your usual mountain fare.

La Fruitiere is geared towards an efficient service. There are plenty of staff, noticeable by their blue boiler-suit uniforms, equipped with electronic order gadgets, so the service is rapid. The result is you can get back to your skiing, or satisfy your appetite, quickly. Whilst turn-around may be quick, if you want to be sure of a table you are well-advised to phone ahead.

Indoors the restaurant is styled on an old dairy and serves a selection of local cheeses. Outside is a suntrap for most of the afternoon, where you can watch the antics of the next door Folie Douce crowd or just sit and talk. If the air is slightly chilly there are some huge overcoats which you can fit over your ski gear.

Lunch is available from 12:00 -15:30. Whilst you do pay for the privilege of eating here it doesn't seem more expensive than most of the alternatives. This really is one of my top-rated lunch locations.


  • "This is not a cheap mountain restaurant, but it is a place that is well worth visiting as it serves great food both inside or outside (where you can experience the fun of The Folie Douce next door). We have been going there for several years now and it is a firm favourite. The staff are brilliant and make the whole experience very worthwhile. A range of dishes including steaks, bourginon, pasta dishes, duck shepherds pie and quality burgers all hit the spot. Go and enjoy!" - Customer Feedback
  • "Arrived at 12:00 for first sitting before the FD next door went crazy (we are too old for that amount of raving before 10pm!) Fabulous cheese platter starter followed by main courses that were delicious and very French - exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely be back next year. Great service too." - Customer Feedback
  • "Even though we didn't have a reservation we were welcome to have lunch. Food quality and service were both excellent. We are going again tomorrow! :-)" - Customer Feedback
  • "Went here for lunch twice and the food is excellent as well as the service, but it may lack a bit if there is a lot of people. Nice atmosphere, gets a bit to busy late in the afternoon due to the after ski but wonderful for lunch." - Customer Feedback
