the location is very picturesque, but it is in a deep valley where the sun disappears early. you may well start lunch in warm sunshine but end up in cold shadow, so think about your start time or be prepared to move indoors.
basic mountain fare but to a decent standard. had house burger and chips which were fine with small pichet of good red wine. perfect. you can then ski down to the lift which takes you up to a direct continuous descent to the mid-station as I recall.

This is now the best refuge restaurant on the hill, and well worth a visit. The service was pleasant and efficient, and quick. More room inside than you expect, and a fine view from the terrace.

Definitively my favourite place for lunch when skiing in Les Contamines (and I tried them all for 30 years!). Refurbished and extended a few years ago, the owner and staff are so nice and food so satisfying that once you've been there you will come back again for sure. As a lot of regulars that can be seen day after day will prove it. Earthy meals with a bit of sophistication, great deserts and a superb Rhone Valley wine list at reasonable prices. What else can I say? Oh yes, You'd better book your table to avoid disappointment. And if you want your Cote Rotie decanted, just give Francois a call one hour before you pop in...

Some of the best food on the slopes. Best croute Savoyarde you can find. Gets a bit busy at lunchtime but worth the wait.
