Restaurant d’altitude Le Panoramic
Although the food places the Panoramic as one of the best restaurants in Tignes, it pays to get it right here, otherwise you could be in for a miserable experience. This gourmet-standard, table-service restaurant – think of freshly grilled lobster and you get the idea – is next door to a scruffy looking transport café-type establishment that doesn’t make for a great first impression. But don’t let that put you off. Ring ahead and book between midday and three; if you get in early you can reserve a highly prized table near the fire, on which the lobster is grilled. It’s easy to stay a bit too long in the gloomy depths of the restaurant, especially if full up with the braised rack of lamb and tiramisu. On the plus side, over-eaters can take the train back.
