Etoile des Neiges
It doesn’t take a genius to realise that this is one of the best restaurants in Tignes. Found in Les Brévières, Etoile des Neiges is run by Christine et Alain Silvent and is a stalwart on the gourmet tourist circuit; indeed, foodies flock from far and wide to sample a selection of dishes from across the globe, with everything from oysters to crepes on the menu. Highlights include the smoked salmon and the confit of duck, as well as croziflette – a variation on tartiflette with no potatoes but miniature dumplings instead. Situated opposite the Vallon gondola, the restaurant also enjoys imposing views of the dam at nearby Les Boisses.
