This is the worst resturant experience I've ever had. A group of us on a skiing holiday booked here for our night off from the chalet meals. What a disaster! Really slow service and no beer, with us walking out after over an hour waiting for food. Service was really poor and the owner is just like Basil Fawlty. Avoid... More

You couldn't make up the comedy of errors and total disarray. We were a group of 8 and we had pre-booked, so no real excuse not to be able to serve us. The whole party ordered either fondue or meat on hot stones. How long does it take to provide cold meat? They tried to placate us with more shots... More

Just to sum up the review before I even start.. this is the worse restaurant I have ever been to!! Whether you enjoy this restaurant or not depends on whether you have a sense of humour or not! The service is appalling, we arrived as a group of eleven who had pre-booked the day before, to be seated on a... More

Admittedly we were a very large party of 22 - however they did willingly accept the booking without asking us to have a set menu (which we would have totally accepted and indeed expected). From the start it was obvious that the owner/patron did not want us there - he was rude. We had to beg for menus, beg for... More

Horrible service. We waited for our menu for 3 hours and and gave up before we had the desert. Can't recommend this place to anyone! Stay away!

It all started with our reservation... Yes, it was booked but they didn't take down a name so we had to wait until they accepted it was us. Then the menu... It took at least 20 minutes to be given a menu (we tried to get the waiters' attention much earlier but to no avail). Given the delays and the... More

We went to lunch here on a non-skiing day (due to heavy snow). The meal was excellent and the host very welcoming. I will be going back next time I am in AdH.

We were seated on the veranda in sub-zero temperatures and never really felt warm all evening. Our booking was for 7.30 p.m. We had to ask repeatedly for menus, to have our drinks order taken, and again to have our meal order taken. It seemed to be under staffed, with young waiter and waitress who were run off their feet.We... More

I visited this lovely cosy restaurant with my daughter who had the foresight to book. It was very popular and many people who just came "on spec" were unable to get in or had to wait a long time. I would suggest getting there early as it gets busy. The food was excellent and extremely good value. I ate the... More

Visited during a week long skiing trip to Alpe D'Huez in the week leading to Christmas. We booked for the early evening and we're first to arrive. Seated quickly and given menus. My wife and I ordered wine and sons ordered beer and soft drink. The owner came to our table (pounced on our table is probably closer to what... More
