There are of course several dozen mountain restaurants in the Three Valleys – see the entries for Courchevel, Les Menuires, Meribel and Val Thorens for more suggestions.
Two of the closest to La Tania are Le Bouc Blanc (+33 (0)4 79 08 80 26) and Le Roc Tania (+33 (0)4 79 08 32 34; restaurants3vallees.com).
The Bouc Blanc is at the top of the La Tania gondola making it accessible to any non-skiers in your party. It’s a pleasant wood clad building with a mixed menu and a large terrace.
Le Roc is a little further as you need to take the Dou des Lanches lift after the gondola. It also has a great menu of mountain favourites, a large sun terrace and spectacular 360 degree views.

There are less than a dozen places to eat in La Tania but they’ve managed to provide a range from a tiny take out to an internationally recognised gourmet award winning establishment.
In the former category, if you’re just after a quick bite Snack-Bar Le Snow Food (+33 (0)4 79 08 48 99) is great for take out sandwiches, paninis and pizzas.
Restaurant La Ferme de La Tania (Immeuble Le Christiania; +33 (0)4 79 08 23 25; laferme.latania.fr) is a homely place right at the end of the Folyères piste that has a terrace for sunny days and serves up everything from crepes to local Savoyard specialities.
Restaurant Les Chanterelles (Immeuble Le Christiania; +33 (0)4 79 08 23 25) is famed for its savoury crepes and other dishes including “cripites" – a kind of thin pizza which are the chef’s speciality.
Restaurant Les Marmottons (Immeuble Les Folyères; +33 (0)4 79 08 81 63) serves up Savoyard specialties as well as, once again, pizza. Every Thursday night there’s a special meal of mussels and chips!
Top of the pile is Le Farçon (Immeuble Kalinka; +33 (0)4 79 08 80 34; lefarcon.fr) which provides a new twist on regional French cuisine and has been awarded a Michelin star for it, now held since 2006.
There’s limited food shopping in La Tania so ideally you should arrive with much of your grocery requirements with you. However there is a good boulangerie (Immeuble Les Folyères; +33 (0)4 79 22 51 15) and a nice little general food store (La Saucisse Savoyarde (Immeuble Le Kalinka; +33 (0)4 79 08 07 95; lasaucissesavoyarde.com) that can supply the fresh produce you need. As well as a good stock of cheese, wine and Savoyard products it even proudly retails British food including HP sauce, Heinz Baked Beans, PG Tips, Marmite, Walkers crisps and even British bacon! La Saucisse Savoyarde also has a daily-changing menu of meals to take out and a good ready-made pizza menu.
