After a great day of skiing my son and I came here for dinner. Our hotel recommended it and made us reservations. We both had the filet and it was excellent. The atmosphere feels like your eating in an old chalet. This is the oldest restaurant in town. Well worth trying to get in. Staff was friendly and prompt. We had a awesome desert as well.

My second visit to La Grande Ourse and it did not disappoint. Quite pricey but worth it with excellent service.

Just gorgeous - old school, classic and friendly. The food is great, the ambience cosy. Perfect after a day on the slopes. I love it and hope to come back for many years.

The team have got it sorted perfectly. I have been coming her for 20 years and it’s busier than ever so make sure you book! We did book however we were kept waiting 30 minutes for our table as they didn’t want to ask the others guests to leave, I would have thought that when you have two sittings you would tell your earlier 12:30 booking that you need the table back by 13:45 for the next booking, quite simple! Anyway I will stop telling them how to run their business as the service, food and wine we’re great.

La Grand Ourse has always been one of our favourite restaurants in Val d'Isere. It worked well for both lunch and dinner. The terrace is a real sun trap and in the evenings the restaurant was intimate and cosy. However, we were disappointed with our trips this year. It still worked well enough for lunch although we did feel the food was not as good as it could be. However, the evening meal was really quite poor. The lighting was incredibly high and the dining room felt really quite dated. We hoped the food would make up for it but sadly not. Would we return? Given we have enjoyed so many meals over the years here we probably would - but it will seriously need to improve.
