Valfrejus Mountain Restaurants

Restaurants in Town
There’s a restaurant for every day of the week in Valfréjus, but if you plan to stay eight days or more, you’ll need to go to somewhere twice – so in other words, an adequate but not excessive choice!
As you’re close to Italy, the pizza is usually good at La Cordée, (+33 (0)4 79 05 22 39) which has a terrace that’s popular in good weather and is one of the larger establishments in resort, able to seat up to 100. The Bardonecchia (+33 (0)4 79 05 08 13) also pays homage to Valfréjus’ near neighbour, the famous Italian ski resort just on the other side of the Frejus tunnel.
Remembering you’re still on the French side of the border though, for local cuisine you can get a simple crepe at the Gourmand (+33 (0)4 79 05 24 81) or something a little more substantial at Les Tavernes (+33 (0)4 79 64 02 37) or at Manger (+33 (0)4 79 05 28 40) or Piccolina (+33 (0)4 79 05 20 05).
Valfréjus has a bakery, La Valoiserie (+4 (0)79 05 19 89), a deli selling regional produce and other specialities, Alpine Delights (+33 (0)4 79 20 32 71) and a small Sherpa supermarket (+33 (0)4 79 05 30 06) which contains butchery and delicatessen sections.
