Pier, Paul & Jack
Guests at the four-star Hotel L’Aigle des Nieges won’t have to go far to find places to eat in Val d’Isere, within the hotel itself there are two restaurants and a tapas bar to choose from. Pier and Paul both offer fine-dining experiences with dishes made from locally-sourced seasonal produce, while the Jack offers more casual tapas meals and on-trend sharing plates.
Savour the traditional menu at Pier, including goat’s cheese with mountain honey, mushroom risotto with Savoie ham, chicken with reblochon cheese, homemade rabbit pate and confit of duck with parmesan; if you have room for dessert, try the belt-busting red berries with Champagne sauce – a truly decadent way to finish off a meal. In the romantic setting of Paul, try fried foie gras with apple and fig chutney, scallops with old Comte cheese, roast rack of lamb with juniper berries or poached pears in Savoie red wine; finish this with hot dark chocolate soufflé.
And if it’s light bites you’re after, then you can’t go far wrong with snacks at Jack; include tapas, sharing plates and mini fondues can be enjoyed against a backdrop of live music, all washed down with a cocktail or two from the extensive menu.
