Great little (tiny!) restaurant in Val D'Isere and not as wallet emptying as some! We spent the last evening of our ski holiday here and enjoyed delicious food (menu Savoyard, menu enfant and duck confit). All the food was brilliant, the duo of Tiramisu on the set menu was something else! The thing that let the venue down was the service. The staff were all pleasant and busy but just not attentive enough under the pressure of a busy service. We had to share menus to order mains and then help ourselves to menus and push the staff into taking our orders for dessert. Having seen someone else challenge their bill, I checked ours and found a small error which was corrected without question. Despite the frustrations above, the food was good enough that I would recommend the restaurant and would return myself but in the knowledge that it was going to be a long affair!

Bar Jacques was recommended as it was only a short distance from our hotel and it certainly did not disappoint. We ate simple salad and pizza on the 3 nights we visited out of 4 but it never disappointed. The desserts were astounding!! The owner and waitress were a delight and welcomed us like long lost friends. Would highly recommend Bar Jacques and will certainly be back on our next visit to Val!!

What a gem of a restaurant in Val d'Isere. Prices in some other local restaurants have rocketed recently while the food and service have moved in the other direction. This was a first visit in 15 years for us and we enjoyed it so much that we rebooked for our final night too. It's a very small restaurant and so expect to be sitting close to others. The staff are very friendly and the food on both nights was excellent. We do not like to rush meals and there was no pressure to do so. Definitely top of our list when next in Val.

We have been visiting Val D'Isere since three years for our skiing holiday. Every year we go to Bar Jacques to have dinner a couple of times. We have never been disappointed. The home made food is good. The service in this family run restaurant is personal and welcoming. This year on our last evening we enjoyed the 1,1 Kg. Cote de Boeuf. This surpassed my expectations. It was excellent meat excellently cooked. We will definitely be back.
