Best fondue in Tignes

The guide to must visit restaurants for cheese lovers

featured in News & reviews Author Lara Bugle, Tignes Reporter Updated

A highlight of a ski holiday in the Alps is the classic Savoyard cuisine.

One of which is a traditional fondue and if you're heading to Tignes, you'll be happy to hear the resort is littered with great spots to feed yourself into a cheese coma.

Le Brasero Restaurant, Tignes Le Lavachet

Le Brasero

Le Brasero in Lavachet provides a solid fondue with a healthy portion of their delicious double fried chips, and you can also enjoy it as part of their three courses (they do ask to pay a supplement for the fondue).

Although not traditionally French, it provides consistent and great food, fantastic live music acts as well as brilliant deal on drinks, so head down there if you're looking to continue the meal on into the night.

Also located in Lavachet. The couple who own it, Christine and Louis, have been running their restaurant together for decades now giving the place a lovely family atmosphere and you will find it one of the most inviting restaurants in Tignes.

If cheese fondue is not quite your thing you can also indulge yourself in a meat fondue that is also excellent and good fun for all the family.

La Ferme des Trois Capucines

One of the most popular options for fondue in Tignes is La Ferme des Trois Capucines.

It's not hard to see why this is often recognised as one of the best restaurants in Tignes with their own farm produce shop next door the food is as traditional and fresh as humanly possible!

Fantastic atmosphere, knowledgeable service and equally as amazing options for those who aren’t cheese fans. The only thing I would mention is that you should definitely book as La Ferme always gets booked up quickly so hurry to secure your place.

La Chaumiere

Another great fondue can be found slightly off the beaten track at La Chaumiere, the restaurant part of the Village Montana hotel in Tignes Le Lac.

Made popular by its spectacular veranda the restaurant itself is very beautiful. With its alpine themes, floor to celling wood and good quality fondue it is a winning choice.

L’Esacle Blanche

Some of you are undoubtedly heading to Tignes with children or with a group who may not all match your cheese obsession. Do not fear as Tignes also has a couple of restaurants that can suit all culinary delights.

L’Esacle Blanche is located right next to the Maison de Tignes in Le Lac. Not only can you enjoy a fondue and raclette, but they also do excellent pizzas and burgers and a whole range of main meals to suit everyone’s needs.
