Tignes - eat, drink, party

Mountain restaurants

Mountain dining isn’t one of Tignes’ strengths, with many visitors heading into town or Val d'Isère for lunch. Pick of the bunch for food is the smart Italian Lo Soli (00 33 479 060 742) at the top of the Chaudannes chair-lift on L'Aiguille Percée, while Le Panoramic (00 33 479 066 011 ) is best for views.

Off the slopes, grab a crêpe at Crêpes à Gogo La Montagne (00 33 479 063 130 ) in Le Lac, and try local cheese specialities in Sachette (00 33 479 064 116 ) at Les Brevières.

Restaurants in town

There’s a good choice in all the villages. Favourites include:

  • Le Caveau (00 33 479 065 232) (Val Claret) and Clin d'Oeil (00 33 479 065 910) (Le Lac) for Savoyard specialities
  • Cuisine à la Montagne (00 33 479 011 143) (Les Suites de Nevada hotel, Val Claret) for posh nosh in ‘rustic chic’ surroundings
  • L'Arbina (00 33 479 064 683) (‘Arbina Hotel, Le Lac) for seriously gourmet food
  • La Ferme des 3 Capucines (00 33 479 063 510; website) (le Lavachet) for family fun, dining while watching the farm’s bovine residents in Europe’s highest year-round operational farm

Après-ski and nightlife

Despite the fact that 70% of ‘Tigneaddicts’ (regular visitors) are under 39 years of age (and 62% male), après-ski options remain pretty limited and dominated by large screen TVs.

The so-called ‘Golden Triangle’ in Val Claret provides après action at Grizzly’s Bar, pre-party drinks at Arobaze Café and dancing at Blue Girl or Melting Pot, all within staggering distance of each other. Other popular Val Claret watering holes include Fish Tank and Couloir while Scotty's (Le Lavachet). Grotte du Yeti and Loop Bar (Le Lac) are also lively.

For a more chilled-out experience, try Alpaka Lodge and local’s favourite, the Embuscade bar (both in Le Lac), or enjoy live music at Le Brasero (Le Lavachet).
