Venture to the ends of the earth


Subtle and sophisticated cuisine

Unique cuisine

Our restaurant offers an unexpected culinary experience in the high mountains under the Bec de l’Homme Glacier.

Nestling in the heart of the Meije Region at Villar d’Arène, Le Faranchin’s restaurant and its chef David Amieux offer a flavoursome and sophisticated culinary experience.

Every day, in addition to the à la carte menu, David Amieux offers a tasty menu of the day based on his mood and utilizing fresh market produce and his ‘finds.’

Subtle flavours

While the menu contains the two or three not-to-be-missed mountain specialities and local produce, our chef also concocts dishes with subtle flavours and aromas, such as St Pierre fillet with a creamy coconut sauce, sweet potato purée, roast leg of suckling pig with rhubarb sauce, and delicious desserts.

This understated venue is getting known through word of mouth, making for delighted diners.

A taste for sharing

We regularly hold wine and regional produce tasting sessions because we are passionate about good food and drink.

You can join a scheduled tasting session or book a private session for six or more people.
