Fancy Gratin Dauphinois? Traditional Fondue? Tartiflette? Raclette? Pizza or spaghetti for the children? Or try some of the wonderful truly local Vaujany dishes you can seek out with a little effort.
For lunch and in the evening dining out in Vaujany is a real pleasure. Being a village rather than a large resort, the restaurants are small, charming and rarely full, giving you all the benefits of attentive service along with good food freshly prepared.
Hotel Rissiou – 04 76 80 71 00
In the summer the square in front of the Hotel Rissiou is a glorious suntrap and a great place for an aperitif. Why not then simply stay for an evening of authentic taste of France as owner Jean-Francois dons his apron and cooks up traditional French Alp favourites.
Stiefs Bar Resto -06 81 58 57 35
Stief, who has become somewhat of a local living legend, is now in a bigger and better location and still serving his delicious rums. Stief’s Bar and Resto stays open in the summer and serves an array of gourmet burgers and food as well as delicious Belgian beers – try the Triple Karmeliet. A sort of Hard Rock style menu offers a great range of burgers and steaks – delicious!
Chez Passoud (Auberge) Restaurant - 04 76 80 73 18
This is THE place for real Vaujany food and a chance to experience dishes you literally might only find in this village. Well worth the venture just out of Vaujany, there is a large menu with more traditional plates, but foodies must try some of their special centuries’ old recipes. In their garden behind the restaurant M and Mme Passoud grow the vegetables and herbs needed for this unique mountain fare and they are harvested sometimes just as you order! Get a balcony table for a magical view of the valley below; it is quintessential French Alps in the summer
La Remise – 04 76 80 77 11
The family favourite. Pascal’s wood fired oven pizzas are now legendary and the atmosphere extremely cosy, with wooden walls and old mountain tools aplenty. Or drink in the view and dine ‘al fresco’ on the sundrenched terrace with great views all around. Traditional French Alp mountain dishes are prepared with great care. Take away also possible
Le Collet - 06 31 34 10 89
Eat at the tennis courts just above La Villette and you’ll be surrounded by some of the very best views imaginable for a BBQ. The restaurant does great tennis-watching-snacks and surprisingly good steaks. However, its real strength are the ‘bring your own meat’ BBQs. Once a week the BBQ is fired up, there is often music and as the sun sets you grill what you’ve brought and wash it down with chilled ‘demis’ or wine from the restaurant.
Le Table de la Fare - 04 76 80 82 40
Severine is back and with her comes great food, service and her famous smile. The location is the same, so is the name, but the food is possibly even better and if you want a special night out in Vaujany, this is the place to come.
L’Aigle Royal - 04 76 79 58 48
Le S’Tou - 04 76 11 11 93
New to Vaujany this 5* restaurant is reputed to be a of fine dining experience.
