Facing the right way
On a skiing holiday over Christmas & New Year, we had lunch on the terrace enjoying the December sunshine and the fantastic views at Val Thorens at 2,300 metres. We had their pizzas and they were excellent. Service was a bit spasmodic but that was because the place was heaving with skiers, clamouring for sustaince. The waiter expertly kept us ticking over while he cleared tables, processed bills, took and delivered orders.

Reasonable food in an excellent location.
Location of restaurant and view is excellent. On our one visit the service was friendly and the food was reasonable quality and value but nothing exceptional.

perfect central bar stop for a meal or snack
facing west of course with a great panoramic view of the mountains. Good restaurant food but also with a very good value for money snack menu. We spent most days here in between skiing taking in the view and the sun's rays. The friendly staff where excellent and so was the music. A very well run establishment with one of the owners everpresent. See you next season.

First class service and food to match
We ate here several times for dinner and had lunch once as well which was reasonably priced and the food was excellent. Service was top draw and managed to fit us in each night. Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner. Pizza's were best we had in Val Thorens and bills were the most reasonable by far.

Beware of the chilli sauce though as it is as hot as they warn you. At lunchtimes as well ask for the snack menu as weren't forthcoming with offering it up initially and it's very reasonable.

Great location as well ski in and ski back out to the slopes.

Don't eat here
I had a pizza in this restaurant which gave me a bad stomach. It's a great location so ok for a drink but eat elsewhere.

Good food, very good service, great location and atmosphere
Restaurant exterior and menu looked good, we entered and enjoyed every dish. Came back again the other day and all was great. When you come, try the onion soup, it is one of the best ever had.

Best pizza outside Italy!
Having lived in Rome for 13 years, we know what we are talking about when it comes to good pizza!! The pizza at Face West was most definitely the best pizza we have had outside of Italy! Very authentic, thin crisp pizza base and a choice of approx 20 pizzas. A very popular restaurant, but the staff are efficient in getting you seated as quickly as possible and service is very prompt. Planning to again on our last evening!

We ate here twice on our trip and I have to say they make the most amazing pizzas every. I tried a meat one and then the seafood one. The seafood one was to die for. Service is fantastic and very friendly and is so reasonably priced. It only cost us 30 euros per head in the evening for a large meal and wine. Definitely go and visit this restaurant and have a pizza. You won't be sorry!

Put off by the high prices of other restaurants we were not put off when taking a gander at the menu of this establishment. On first arrival we were fearful our party would not be able to accommodated, however these worries were unfounded. The decor was of a rustic, mountainous feel with warmth and the atmosphere was simply superb. The service was attentive, friendly and helpful with only problems not solutions on offer
The food was delightful with the lamb on the shank falling off the bone like dominoes on a table. The burger did the job and the beef tartar was excellently cooked to just the right heat.
Just when we thought things could not get better we were proved wrong, the desserts were like folie douce. The apple pie and profiteroles were the best thing we'd ever had and the ice cream hit the spot also. All in all an evening beyond our wildest dreams.
