Every time I come to Ax (3 or 4 times a year)a visit or two to Le Grand Cafe is an absolute must! The food is good, but what makes this place exceptional is Nelson and all his staff. Great people, great service and such a welcoming feeling every time and fantastic food and drink too at a good price.... More

Conveniently located of the central square. Large room with full height windows on two sides. Bright and well lit. Surly waiters who feigned to speak no English led us down the path of ordering the fish-of-the-day, a whole cuttlefish. So much for Franko-American relationship. Fortunately my wife ordered a different fish fillet, generously sized, which we shared The ratatouille on... More

This is a reliable stop over if you are hungry but it is not fine dining. Everyone was content with their orders and the staff did their best in friendly fashion. Pizza can be combined with pasta so you don't have too much of one thing. Good also for vegetarians with a large menu and still serving when others closed... More

On the way to travelling to Andorra we stopped here for lunch. There were lots of locals eating and it was packed. Slightly surly serving staff who were very busy. We got there latish and so the main dish on the good value prix fixe was off but the pork chop was good. Didn't have a pudding not least as... More

This cafe in the center of town is worth visiting for the atmosphere. It's busy and cheerful, pleasant inside and out in the garden or yard. Portions are substantial and look quite good. I had a pizza which was enormous but mediocre. I suffered from envy of those at other tables who had selected better choices. The service is slow... More

Have been twice now and enjoyed both times. The menu is fairly typical - a perfectly suitable place for post-skiing dinner out with children.

Well cooked, well presented and on a nice budget, nice ambiance, extremely gayfriendly and trendy but very cozy! Waiters are a bit slow but you really don't care because this is not a stressed village. Nice view over the ancient bath house. Perfectly set in the middle of this small skiers village.

Great atmosphere, young and fun staff, menu caters for all, delicious food and generous portions, good value for money. Just for a few drinks or coffee on the terrace, lunch, evening aperos or dinner - family friendly (children's menu). Lively and buzzing. A popular venue for both locals and tourists. Both as a couple and with a crowd, we have... More

I like this grand hall and its decoration from a previous époque... I like the food, but it tends to be too salty or too sweet. Huge portions too. I like that it's gay friendly, that is rare for the region Now, I am not sure about the flat TV screens streaming during dinner and some of the newly added... More
