Fodor's Review

With its legendary views of the Cirque de Gavarnie, this spot, which opened at the head of the valley in 1848, is well worth the one-hour hike up from the village. Despite its name, the hôtel is a restaurant, but not just any old one: the garbure here is as delicious as the view is grand. Seventh-generation owner Pierre Vergez claims his recipe using water from the Cirque and cocos de Tarbes, or haricots tarbais (Tarbes broad beans) is unique.
