Les Arcs – Food and drink

Local cuisine in Les Arcs stems from Savoyarde roots - this means specialities like tartiflette and raclette feature heavily on the menus here. While the carbohydrates of these cheese and potato dishes will keep your energy levels up but you might require a Genepi (Alpine liqueur) to help with the digestion! Expect to pay around €20 each for a main dish such as raclette or fondue; these are often shared and require at least two people to order the same. 

 

Restaurants

As well as local specialities there are the typical creperies and pizzerias but also a few more unusual options like a Mexican restaurant in Arc 1950. You can get take out Pizzas from various locations for around €10 a pizza (e.g. Nonna Lisa in 1950 or SOS Pizza in 1800). The Arpette mountain restaurant do a meal on the mountain every Wednesday with a torchlit descent down to 1800 afterwards.

 

Mountain restaurants

There are lots of mountain restaurants to choose from. Anything from budget options like the snack stop at the Col des Frettes (beyond the flat section at the top of the Arpette chair, where you can get a sandwich for a fiver) to Belliou la Fumee for a more refined (if pricier) lunch. If Belliou la Fumee is too expensive then the large sun deck at the Pre St. Esprit restaurant will give you ample opportunity to soak up the rays and enjoy the views of Mont Blanc.

 

Après ski

There are several bars in each different village but Arc 1800 is probably the liveliest spot for nightlife. Here you can choose from various après ski options before partying the night through and ending up at the Apocalypse night club. Getting back to other villages late at night is really not an easy option unless someone is prepared to drive. For Après ski, Whistler's pub in Arc 2000 is a good option, as is the Red Hot Saloon in 1800.

 

On a budget?

The Pizzerias and creperies are often the best value options and you can get a burger and fries and a drink for under a tenner at Meli's Snack in 1950 or similar establishments in other villages. The bakeries often do sandwiches as well as canned drinks to take away.
