Chalet du Lac Besson Restaurant, Alpe d'Huez

The perfect mountain stop off for both skiers and hikers

Featured in:

| Updated

Open throughout the winter and summer seasons, pedestrians and skiers alike can enjoy this mountain restaurant.

Off the beaten track, you can enjoy a number of traditional Savoyard specialties at this restaurant and either sit out on the terrace in the sun, or enjoy the cosy interior on a bad weather day.

Pedestrian access from Alpe d'Huez is via a short walk around the frozen lake and for skiers heading down the Chamois track, you will find the restaurant on the right at the Boulevard des Lacs. In summer, the restaurant is actually accessible by car and there are 400 available parking spaces...once the snow has melted...

Booking is recommended especially during peak season as the restaurant can get very busy. Open in the winter and summer seasons from 09:00 to 17:00.


Visitor comments

  • "Always love popping in here because it's off the beaten track. Good for cross country skiers/red run standard downhillers. Great sun deck, good service, decent food and so few people (that week). I'll be back!" - Trip Advisor
  • "The best stone cooked meats on the mountain, well worth treating yourself to one long lunch here. Lovely to get to with a fun schuss at the end, which you need to go for. Do not rush it and pick a sunny day and enjoy the fabulous quiet views." - Trip Advisor
  • "Superb location and very good food. Perfect place to recover after hiking though it is a little difficult to restart again. The restaurant is nicely located next to a lake with of course fantastic scenery. The food was really good hearty mountain food and the service was very friendly." - Trip Advisor
