Great food and cocktails in this hidden gem tucked away in Tignes Lavachet

featured in Restaurants Updated

Well worth seeking out!

Despite its name, there is a whole lot more to this quirky little bar/restaurant than just pig products! There is a real gastronomic feast to choose from on the menu, such as grilled oysters or razor clams and camembert and red current tartlet to start, followed by Aberdeen Angus flank steak or duck burger, both served with fois gras, grilled halibut and even a vegetarian haggis. Of course, if you do want to go the whole "hog" (get it??) you can start with a serving of pigs tails slow roasted in cider and finish up with filet, cheek and belly of pork with a black pudding cream.

There are various promos on throughout the week, such as "Moules Monday" - where you can have a starter and a choice of mussels for main with a glass of wine for just a bargain price. Other meal deals include oysters and wine, or charcuterie and wine combos, and at the weekend, bag yourself a juicy duck burger and a pint or how about a pulled pork burger at reduced prices in the bar during Happy Hour?

Located right in the heart of Le Lavachet, just opposite the bus stop, a visit to this bar/restaurant has to be on your list whilst here in Tignes.

Open throughout the season Tuesday to Sunday 17:00 - 01:00. Closed Mondays.

The Bar

The bar here deserves its own special mention as it has gained a reputation for serving some of the best cocktails in town! Stocked with a rather impressive range of speciality gins, if this is your tipple then be sure to ask for your own "gin card" and collect a stamp as you tick off each different brand. The drinks menu also includes some rather eclectic house infused spirits such as bacon infused bourbon.

The bar has a huge fireplace right in the middle and plenty comfy sofa seating, making it the perfect spot to wind down and warm your toes after a day on the hill, However in the evening, the place springs to life with live bands, musicians and DJ's a permanent feature.
