Discover the top Les Arcs places to eat


There's a wide range of restaurants in Les Arcs to suit all tastes and budgets. Read our guide on all the best places to eat in Les Arcs and where to find your favourite style of cuisine.

At lunchtimes most restaurants will offer a well-priced 'Plat du Jour' (dish of the day), normally consisting of locally-sourced meat, potatoes and a salad or seasonal vegetables.

Breakfast & Brunch

There are few places in Les Arcs that do a decent breakfast, so don’t waste your time trying to find a place that rustles up a full-English. It’s a much better idea to try and immerse yourself in the French culture with a visit to a café or go and buy some fresh croissants and pain au chocolat.

Mont Blanc: In Peisey/Vallandry, it does a pretty good breakfast bap. 

Miam Corner: In Les Arcs 1800 there are numerous little cafés on the ‘front de neige’ in Villards village, and this is one of our favourites (the name means 'yummy corner'). You can sit inside or out, with food and drinks to eat-in or takeaway.

There are two different places in 1950 that you’ll find a decent breakfast. There is the quaint and quirky Wood Bear Café and the elegant Le 1950 Brasserie.

French Restaurants

L’Ancolie: in Peisey Nancroix is an excellent restaurant, if a little difficult to get to without a car. The food is fabulous and the welcome and service are brilliant too. Everything is homemade and you are made to feel like one of the family every time you eat there.

La Vanoise: Found in the Vanoise Hotel in Plan Peisey. They offer a good selection of wine and a very good choice of food too. Their 'Menu Gourmande' is definitely hard to beat in terms of quality and value.

Head to Les Arcs 1800 if you want a change from the usual French dishes.

Nouidle: Serves a combination of Thai, Vietnamese and Lao. Their food is delicious and won’t break the bank, situated opposite the Quiksilver shop in Villards.

Le Lodge: Also at the top of the Villards gondola and part of the Mille8 complex. It offers contemporary dining with fantastic mountain views. 

Mont Blanc: In Peisey/Vallandry, this is a renowned stop off for anyone in the know. With a friendly, buzzy atmosphere and large menu you don’t come here for the food (but you should). For somewhere that’s on the piste this is exceptionally well-priced for such good sized portions. 

La Vache: In Plan Peisey and offers an extremely surprising menu that’s fusion...everything. Their veggie burger is what keeps even devoted meat-eaters coming back for more!

Bar King Mad or BKM: In Les Arcs 1800 is another British bar that has a surprisingly good menu. They have great burgers, pizza, salads and wraps and all of them are brill and definitely won’t break the bank. It’s the ideal hangout for poor hungry students.
