Description: La Grande Ourse is a restaurant in an chalet on the front de Neige since 1936. It has been part of the history of Val d'Isere since the vilage became a ski resort. Come and enjoy the sun on our terrasse for lunch or a dinner by our fireplace. We serve daily specials, French cuisine and local specialities. La Grande Ourse, since 1936

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, but it is very average and was disappointing. Can you believe it? They didn't serve champagne by the glass, not even a French Cremant, but instead, offered Prosecco (which was too warm). Most of our table ordered the roast chicken leg and gratin potatoes, but we had to send back the chicken legs as they were cooked enough. A very bland, uninspiring meal with surly waitress. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Visited La Grande Ourse for the first time and were impressed with the setting (lovely decor and we had a great spot by the fireplace), service (very attentive staff) and most of the food. The sirloin steaks weren't quite up to the standard we were expecting (considering the premium price tag) but the rest of the food was superb and there were generous portion sizes. Would give them another go.

within walking distance to the chairlifts and gondolas; excellent food; the owner also makes his own wine (wines from Domaine André) I had the white wine with my meal; the menu has two types of dessert section; the first dessert section is what appears to be part of the menu; the second is the special for the day (which I totally recommend you ask before using from the regular dessert section); you can walk into town from here or take a walk to the beautiful church for some reflection

Very charming and perfectly located little restaurant located at the foot of the slopes. Old School and charming indoor decor. Service was just ok and charming. Food was quite average going towards below average. Prices are reasonable for what you get i think. (This is a good location) But not worth visiting again.

Recommended by the hotel we were staying at. Nice warm interior, relaxed and a little more space than some of the restaurants we visited. Excellent friendly service, the food was beautifully cooked (we all had 3 courses and all different) and really nice wine. Thoroughly recommend
