This is a great little bar with excellent food, good beer and brilliant staff. Mix of Brits and French when we visited for two evenings mid Jan. Staying in St Jean D'Aulpe but more used to Morzine, I'd thoroughly recommend this oasis in the quiet village, ideal when you're looking for somewhere with some atmosphere and very welcoming.

This place can get really busy so be prepared to wait for food, but the pizzas are worth it. Lively bar, hardworking staff.

Nice position in Main Street around St Jean D'Alpus. Warm welcome and friendly crowd. Didn't try the pizza but people clearly rave about it.

Popped in yesterday and got involved in the quiz night. Good atmosphere and efficient staff. Great pizza and bar snacks on hand. Worth a visit for a pint.

We visited Bar Le National on several occasions during a long weekend away with friends. It is a comfy, clean and welcoming bar great for visitors but there also seemed to be quite a few locals in. The staff speak English which was helpful and welcome considering my french is embarrassing! With pool table, darts, TV, quiz nights and more... More

I spent 3 days in St Jean and most of that time was spent at Bar Le National. It's a fantastic place with a great selection of beers (loads of good Scottish ones, to boot) and really delicious pizzas. They show sport on the big TVs and have a great pool table. I wasn't around for the quiz but apparently... More

An all round great experience. Really friendly staff, lovely atmosphere and without a shadow of a doubt the best pizza in the alps. The porcin pizza is what dreams are made of, go and see for yourself!

After a looooong journey it was so nice to slump into a comfy sofa and relax with no feeling of being rushed out or taking up space. Craig the owner could see I was tired and actually brought my beer (a... More
