The atmosphere was spilling out of this little hole in the wall as we wandered by, so we stopped for a drink. Rocco and Delphine are a true alpine love story and their kindness and welcoming nature fills every corner of their perfect little establishment. The quality of the food they can produce in their tiny kitchenette is a testament... More

Delphine and Rocco make you feel so welcome! I was only in Tignes for two weeks but came here countless times! Apres ski drinks, light dinner with espresso pick-me-up, evening live music - what more could you want? I had so many fun afternoons/evenings here! Salut!

This is a little gem in Tignes, tiny but perfect. Go out of your way to eat here. It has without doubt the best espresso in Tignes (I tried most of them). From the smallest kitchen I've seen, they manage to make some of the best tasting pasta I've had. There are 4 classic pasta dishes on all the time... More

I think the Jam Bar is now probably the nicest bar in Tignes. It's certainly the smallest - but they do their best to find you a table. Run by a charming Italian couple, they serve pasta, ciabattas, soup and focaccia as well as drinks. Music in the evenings. Well worth a visit.

I'd read a few reviews of the place and decided to pay it a visit. We couldn't get a table on our first attempt, (it is quite small) but persisted, and pleased that we did. Really nice welcoming service, great food, and reasonably priced. I'd say it was more of a cafe / snack bar than a restaurant, but def.... More

Great Italian food from Rocco and his wife. Great hospitality, and he can play a mean electric guitar

As an Italian living in France I often miss the pleasure of a real Italian coffee or gelato. Luckily there is Jam Bar, with the lovely Rocco and Delphine to make me feel like I am in Italy!!

Stopping here to have a coffee and Italian hot chocolate is always a must whichever season you are here. The atmosphere is very convivial and joyful and the staff are very welcoming. You can get delicious Italian products which are divine and always hit the spot. Great place to go.

Jam bar used to be a place to hang. Drink shots and have a laugh but sadly it's not. Lift music for the over 60's and staff that really aren't bothered. Plenty of other places to drink and have a laugh. I've been going in the jam bar for 6 year and next season I will find another watering hole.
