This is hidden around the back of the monster block of apartments at the centre of Le Lac, just behind the ESF offices. If you are at the bottom of the Palafour lift you are within a minutes walk.
We dropped in for a quick hot chocolate one morning while the kids were off doing lessons and genuinely felt at home immediately. The presence of local piste safety guys was a reassuring sign. The space itself is pretty small, with room for maybe 15 people seated and more standing but don't let that put you off.
We came back for a drink another night and again really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere so we decided to book in there for dinner the next night. From what we can tell, they more or less take one table at 1900, one at 1930, one at 2000, etc . . . as kitchen space is that limited so do make sure to reserve if you want to eat in the evening. During the rest of the morning/afternoon it's a regular walk in bar/cafe so no booking is required.
The food was nice, comforting pasta dishes mainly. We did get one non-pasta dish but I've forgotten what it was. Whatever it was, there were no complaints and clean plates all round. For desert we had some pretty yummy gelato. The music was great, not too loud, not too quiet. Just right.
Definitely worth a visit if you are around Le Lac.
