This restaurant cam recommended from the Head Ski instructor at ClubMed Valmorel. We were happy to experience something out of the resort. And we were pleasantly surprised how delicious all of our meals were. My teenage kids ordered a pasta dish served with pancetta and a side salad. We also ordered a "meat fondue" (lacking the correct French word for... More

Excellent food all the way around. It was an authentic dining experience in a quaint setting part of the Valmorel village.

We came here twice on our recent ski holiday and were not disappointed. We had the fillet steak, the entrecote, the duck, the steak tartare, the sole , the scallops cassoulet - and for starters , a gorgeous goats cheese salad, snails and garlic pate. The portions are large so we didnt have starters the 2nd visit. The prices were... More

Good food, nice pinchet of red wine, which was on the suggestion board. Friendly staff. Needs a reservation on the busy Friday and Saturday evenings.

If you like flavoursome thin pizzas then this serves the best pizza in town. Loads of choice of toppings, much more than you normally get in uk and far more diverse. Prices range from €9 to €15 each depending on toppings. They are happy to alter toppings to suit. They also do a great line in cocktails here.

To escape the melted cheese onslaught of other evenings I opted for a nice entrecote steak at La Marmite. Cooked to perfection with a nice cognac sauce and great chips. Friendly, attentive staff even though the place was busy. A great atmosphere helped by live music from a quite pleasant sounding duet who had a great rapport with the diners... More

Amazing food with perfect service and welcome. Don't miss the raclette with its wonder appliance melting the delicious into perfection. We were there twice and were not disappointed both times. Reservation required as almost always full during the season.

We ate as a group of 7 and ordered a few bottles of good wine. The bill was eye-watering by Valmorel standards - two or three times what we paid at other restaurants in the same week. LaMarmite is usually cosy, so we were unimpressed at being seated by the door as patrons filed in and out - each accompanied... More
