We ended up having dinner here several times in the week. The staff were very friendly and a) spoke good English and b) understood coeliac requirements. The food was very tasty and good portion sizes. They had a reasonable selection of wines and reasonably priced. They even let us bring GF bread (which you can buy in all of the... More

This is the only place we went back to twice during the week. I had Steak one night and the Raqulette the next, and the rest of my family basically covered the whole menu; all were impressed. The starters and the creme brûlée desserts were wonderful and I can't recommend it enough.

The moment you enter you forget you are in the middle of Alpe D'huez, warm welcome in a wood chalet decor, you immediately feel at home ! The menu is just right to ensure freshness and the wine list is perfect . The fondue is excellent very tasty without the after taste of the wine. The other dishes we tried... More

He prepared a home made Financier for the desert that was outstanding. Everything was perfectly timed and we were all served perfectly... More

We were disappointed with our meal here. 4 of us dined and all agreed the meals lacked flavor. Service was not particularly noteworthy either. Efficient but not overly friendly. Unfortunately there was nothing special nor memorial about L'Authentique 😔

We opted for pasta / gnocchi choices as wanted a meal that wasn't too expensive. Minimal choice for vegetarian but the Gorgonzola gnocchi was delicious. Brilliant service, very attentive but not intrusive.

Venue ok. As a chef I would say menu is pretty standard. Look around area there is more better. Not sure if this place is trying to be 'authentic' Italian ot regional french but fails at both. Service is mediocre, prepare for a long wait. There are better places to visit while in Alpe 'dhuez.
