La Table du Tarin - a top choice for a restaurant in Les Coches

PizzaIn need of some Christmas cheer on the night before Christmas, Monsieur Mogul and his Roomy headed out to a local restaurant to usher in the festive season. Our venue of choice; La Table Du Tarin.

An unprepossessing exterior gives way to a bar and restaurant of considerable charm. The huge open fire offers comfort and cheer to all and, given it was a cold snowy evening, we choose to sit right opposite.

Menus were proffered, choices were made. Two pizzas, French fries, a beer and a bottle of water. Oh yes, we really pushed le bateau out.

But whoa!

The pizzas came super quick and were enormous. I think mine had its own postcode. Thin crusted with lashings of topping; spicy chorizo sausage, salami, black olives and fabulous cheese. Roomy’s pizza was equally fab.

One of these at lunchtime would be a hearty lunch for four hungry skiers.

But the chips. The chips. The chips. Off the scale in fabulousness. They were in fact pommes soufflées in chip form. This is where the final fry is in oil so hot it blisters the skin from the body and gives a crunchy outer with a puffy, soft and yielding centre. Think potato pillows (hence the soufflées in the name). Now, if only they did curry sauce!

The full menu has the usual French favourites, tartiflette, fondu, raclette and steaks with sauce amongst other things. All at very fair prices given the quality of the food.

We departed as the restaurant filled with families and friends in their Christmas finery, clutching our pizza box, the contents of which made for our Christmas lunch.

So, on chalet staff night off, if you fancy a pizza or something similar La Table du Tarin would make an excellent choice – best to book and the chalet staff can help you with this.

Oh, I nearly forgot, did I mention the chips?

Mousier Mogul and Roomy booked under their own name and paid the full price for their meals.
