Some great times had here, great atmosphere. Sometimes a little pretentious and drinks are expensive! Nice blue run all the way home to Val Thoren when it closes at 5pm.

What a place! Always a warm welcome. Always a cold beer or some vin chaude at the ready. Pumping tunes, fab live PA's and wicked dancers. Do yourself a favour; park your skis or board, grabs beer, get yourself up on a table and dance like no one is watching!

Been here a few times. It's the setting and location you pay for. The food is good but expensive. Service is slow and the places is very busy. It's extremely pretentious and that makes it a little unwelcoming. Good for a birthday etc. A late lunch and then next door to party the afternoon away!

It was our second time there, we had lunch but the place is for rich foreigners and not for "normal" people who want to eat on the slopes. It is a self service restaurant with a less than average food overpriced.

Decent restaurant dining with very good service in the linen table cloth department. Fun for aprs ski drinking and carousing (be warned under 18s are not allowed out on the terrace once the dancing begins).

You thought : why cannot we mix sun, altitude and live music ? Well, la folie douce has done it and clearly delivers on the promise. It's pricey but it makes your day so more fun. Staff clearly knows what it takes to make you enjoy and spend your money !

Amazing apres ski location from view to atmosphere. Brilliant entertainment and fun times. 10 € a beer mond in a plastic pot but probably the only downside

La Folie Douce est un concept "Fooding-Clubbing" : un lieu, deux ambiances. Il y a d'abord la brasserie gastronomique La Fruitiere dont l'univers lie tradition et modernite, puis des 14h le bar et son immense terrasse a toit ouvert ou interviennent les fameux PARTYMAKERS qui ont fait la renommee de La Folie Douce de Val Thorens.
