The location is good, food wasn´t bad - we tried lasagne, spaghetti bolognaise and burger with chips. It´s not high gastronomy food you find there so expect average/a little bit above average food. You don´t mind if you´re hungry. Toilets were OK - can´t complain about that.

The Datcha is situated in the Solaise ski area at the bottom parts of the Marais and Forche blue runs, it has a sunny vista but this place is really not trying. It's way overpriced by alpine and Val D'Isere standards. You expect to "pay" up in the mountains but even with that expectation you feel ripped off. Additionally, the... More

The Datcha self-service restaurant is along the Glacier and Plan Milet pistes, near the bottom of the Glacier chairlift. We found it more expensive than some other self-service restaurants in the area, approximately €9 for vegetable soup with bread croutons, €15 for pasta Bolognese, €17 for the burger. The good thing was that you could choose roasted vegetables instead of... More

When I think of Val D'Isere once I am home again it always here that I see myself . Wonderful terrace, in a super ski bowl and super self service, and perfectly normal and good loos, wonder if one of the other reviewers had erred into the Gents by mistake! The pastas are good, the salads superb, and the bar... More

I would have given Datcha the highest possible rating but for the squat toilets in the tired looking bathrooms, which were disappointing. Otherwise, the food here was outstanding. The burgers and chicken dishes were cooked fresh to order; I'd highly recommend the tasty cheeseburger with raclette cheese. The self-service section had everything else one would want--a bar, good looking desserts,... More

We stopped here a couple of times when we required a bit of a pit stop with a view. One of my favourite places on the mountain is to sit on one of there deck chairs with a hot chocolate or beer and admire the view. I recommend the Churros from the bar! As with all these places they are... More

La Datcha was a great little place to stop off and enjoy a Vin Chaud or Chocolate Chaud! There are deck chairs with fluffy covers on outside so that you can relax and enjoy the beautiful view. There are also cosy inside seats for those snowy days where you want to take a bit of shelter! They did a brilliant... More

Nice quite location to have a snack or a full meal. The burger was fine the chips were not to my standard. The service was great and attentive. I went at an off peak time between 1600-1700. Not sure if one would get a seat normally.

La Datcha restaurant is good and has prices typical for the alps but the hidden gem is 10 paces away! Tipi bar serves good food and drinks at reasonable prices under cover or in the sun! Random seating but awesome little place!
