We stopped there by chance, we wanted some coffee before entering the Mont Blanc tunnel, and we ended up having dinner instead. The decore is nice, it is like a typical mountain chalet, the service is good, it is clean, and the food is very tasty. There were lots of locals when we were there, always a good sign. If... More

Stopped there for Sunday lunch. Wonderful pizza and great dessert choice. The place was packed with local families enjoying their lunch. Very friendly and accommodating.

Accompanied by knowledgeable wine lovers and foodies, we came back for a second evening meal here. The local wine collection is extensive and the list goes on nicely. The pizza has a delicate and delicious crust, and the meat dishes, especially a huge Chianina T-Bone, are excellent. They also had large salads and lovely roasted vegetables. All in all, this...

I'm always suspicious of places that have a menu which resembles a short novel. Restaurants should focus on doing a few fresh dishes well. Service however was impeccable. Incredibly attentive waiters. Food was super fast and therefore was not made fresh, and was average quality. We were in Courmayeur for a week and this was by far the worst meal... More

We enjoyed dinner at La Palud our first evening in Courmayeur. We were staying at the Auberge and it was just a short walk up the hill to dinner .. in the snow, which was lovely .. we definitely earned that meal! We went easy -- caprese, pizzas, and some gnocchi .. all excellent, topped off with a bottle of... More

Having evolved from a roadside restaurant for truckers and travelers this now has become a real destination restaurant in Courmayeur. Yes it sits near the entrance to the Mont Blanc tunnel, so it is a bit out of town, but definitely worth the trip. The food is unchallenged, the winelist offers great wines for reasonable prices ( try the Valpolicella)... More

The food was awful. Terrible.we had our dish just after3 minutes of ordering. It was so clear that the food was ready and pre-coocked. It was cold and we asked for changing it. The waitress were quite improfessional. One of the worst food have ever had in Italy

Just about to enter France from the Italian side we decided to have a quick lunch. La Palud is just off the main road (on the right) and is a large place and was almost full but we were quickly given a table and served just as fast. The veal was excellent and with coffee we were out in less... More
