Think this is the best spot for lunch in the Baréges/La Mongie ski area. Good local food (La Saussice my favorite), and outstanding views. We found the staff very helpful and friendly!

Near the "Col du Tourmalet" (of the Tour de France fame) accessible in summer or in winter if you ski at La Mongie. The views from the terrace are majestic. Eric, the owner, is a local farmer and has about 2000 sheep, cows, and pigs....All the meat is from his farm. The best dish is a shoulder of lamb (for 2 people) that has to be pre-ordered in the morning. I have never had better. Any of their dishes should be the envy of other establishments. I highly recommend it.More

It’s hard to imagine a better place to sit out on a terrace for lunch. At the top of the Col de Tourmalet is this delightful restaurant overlooking the mountains, basking in sunshine, and offering wonderful food and wine. Two of us shared a shoulder...of lamb and we chose the entrecôte which was so big! We manage to eat all it was so delicious, served with great potatoes and salad. We had a very tasty peach flavoured aperitif first along with some great wine suggested by the waiter Patrice.More

Busy at lunchtime while skiing, however service was very good. Food reasonably priced, however not copious. You can't get tap water there, so be prepared to pay for bottled water, 2 euros for a half litre bottle. Toilets are outside, and downstairs. It would have...been nice if the log fire had been lit on the cold day that we were there.More

After a nice and sunny day of trekking up to the Pic du Midi, we decided on our way back to the car parked nearby l'Etape du Berger to go for a drink and finish the day nicely. We sat on the terrace enjoying the...sunshine and an 1hr rest. I went inside to order the drinks as no waiter were in sight. As we were on holiday in the region, I enquired the best time to have lunch in this establishment. The waitress served our drinks and replied in a condescending tone it was until 3pm and walked away. I don't think your team took this attitude when Mr Emmanuel Macron (French President) visited and to ate last february in your restaurant. Great Customer Service.... NOT!! We might (or not) come back to have lunch before we leave and hope for a better welcome!!! At least, we had an overview of the local shepherds bringing all the ewes down the valley towards La Mongie.More

My friends and I were going around the mountains by car when we luckly found this place to have lunch! It was really nice to sit in the sun looking at the amazing view! The price for the menu was super reasonable (a surprise, in...fact), just 10 euros for good food! I totally recommend it!More

Situated near the Tourmalet the restaurant is only accessible to skiers in the winter when it does a great trade and has the best mountain views in the Tourmalet ski area. Choice is fairly limited and the system may seem a bit chaotic but it...isn't. There is now a bar downstairs for snacks aimed at younger people to judge by the music. In the summer it is accessible by foot or car and is more relaxed. You need to be a carnivore to enjoy it and all the meat comes from the Patron's own herds. The family who run it are all charming.More

Well, sure, the skiers know about this place because it's located virtually beneath one of the great ski lifts of the Pyrenees, at 7000 ft, just a stone's through from the iconic Col du Tourmalet. If you're driving up from La Mongie you'll arrive at...a parking lot just before the col ... but don't park. Instead, turn into the lot, go to the back, and follow the road for a little bit. It ends at the restaurant very close-by, and we never would have suspected this place had our B&B hostess in Sers not told us about it. We were there for lunch in September, so it was low-low season, and the restaurant was empty except for one table populated by a party of locals including the owner and his wife. His sign outside announces locally-raised lamb -- mountain cuisine. We ordered the garbure (the regional soup) because it is what you order in the high Pyrenees. We'd had it in Sers, we'd had it in Bareges, and now we had it at what must be one of the absolute highest restaurants in the Pyrenees. The food was excellent, the meat was outstanding, partly because the atmosphere in the restaurant is just about the most authentically unpretentiously "mountain" as could be. The family welcomed us warmly, the food came reasonably quickly, the mountains rose around us majestically, and we were at peace. What a SURPRISE!More

Secreted behind the cafe area at the top of lift number 12 is this wonderful piste based restaurant. Great welcome with good food and wine. Select a cut of beef and sit back while it is cooked or choose one of the daily specials. Sizeable...portions made it good value for an on piste facility. Although it is small (plenty of outdoor tables if the weather is good) we were never made to feel we had to move on but were left to enjoy our food. I hesitate to recommend it too highly as I want there to be space for when I go back!More
