CREATIVITY IN AN ALPINE RESTAURANT
For Jean-Michel Bouvier, “Le locavore” (using fresh seasonal local produce) is the key to creating his special take on the traditional dishes which he likes to call “simple ingredients at their best”.
LA TABLE EN MONTAGNE – THE ULTIMATE IN SUMMER GASTRONOMY
Located at more than 2,000 metres, La Table en Montagne is a true “locavore” restaurant where you can savour the original flavours of Alpine ingredients. The fruit and vegetables that Jean-Michel Bouvier selects are in season and grown by local producers. The fish are caught from lakes in the Savoie and Haute-Savoie regions and the meat comes mostly from Alpine farms, like the lamb reared 30km from Tignes in Séez. Each summer, Jean-Michel Bouvier travels the alpine pastures in search of the best Beaufort to melt in his Savoyard specialities.

Open in the evening
LE PANORAMIC – NOT TO BE MISSED
What could be more original than having lunch at 3,000m?
It is in this unique high-mountain snowy winter and summer playground that the doors of the self-service restaurant and snack bar on the Grande Motte Glacier will open this summer to be enjoyed by skiers and walkers alike! Accessible on foot or via the funicular, Le Panoramic offers a unique backdrop for a one-of-a-kind lunch stop, with 360° panoramic views of the surrounding mountain ranges.
Open for lunch
LE CHALET BOUVIER – SENSATIONAL DISHES GUARANTEED…
With mouth-watering smells coming from its famous open kitchen, lovers of delicious yet unpretentious local specialities are welcomed in a warm and convivial setting.
Open all summer. For dinner.
LE RESTAURANT DU GOLF – A STONE’S THROW FROM THE GREEN
The Tignes Golf Course is unusual in that it is the highest 18-hole course in Europe. Its restaurant is THE place to eat in Tignes in the summer. No need for a handicap to be able to appreciate lunch right by the first tee. You might even mistake yourself for a celebrity.
Tip: the Chef’s cakes and pastries are to die for. And the barbecues are the best in the area.
Open all summer for lunch & dinner
LE TERRACHU – THE TERRACE
Le Terrachu has without a doubt the most beautiful terrace in Tignes! On the edge of the lake in Tignes, a stone’s throw from the water, it has an exceptional panoramic view of the Tignes mountain peaks. Sip a drink in the comfortable armchairs and then head to the table for something to eat.
A word of advice: sun cream is essential.
The little “English touch” of the 100% British team is a bonus. So charming…
Open all summer for lunch
