Inside Track: Tignes

The peaks above Tignes

Tignes Cuisine in Le Lac dishes up a great plate of midday noodles and spicy chilli beef burritos if you’re looking for a piste-side stop off. They also do takeaway if you’re feeling peckish later on. Just down the road at The Marmot Arms, you can get a serious burger with nearly every single type of cheese on top. La Ferme des 3 Capucines does proper Savoyard fondu. There’s a window out back that looks into the animal pen, so you can see what’s on the menu next week! If you’re looking to impress and money is no object, Le Clin d’Oeil serves fancy fine French cuisine. Royal Kebab up in Val Claret is really your only option for something greasy and cheese-covered at 3am. Unlucky for those stuck further down the valley.
