Don't get me wrong we had a lovely evening and meal here, however the main courses we had weren't as good as the starters and desserts. It may be us just being slightly picky, and I would definitely go back, but we were all slightly disappointed with the main courses.

The dining room is lovely with a lovely log fire, the service, wine and most of the food was exceptional.

The only complain we had about this resturant is that there is no sign of it outside. Otherwise everything was really great, starting with David the manager who welcomed us, the rustic environment and continuing with very good food and excellent wine.
We really enjoyed our meal at the Shackleton.

This was listed as the best place to eat in Sestriere when we looked, so we thought we would give it a try.

The hors d'oeuvre arrived, a flavourless shaving of carrot with an accompanying non-determinable counterpart.

The starters. For the life in me I can't remember.

Mains.The good bit - the vegetarian pasta dish was edible. The 'locally sourced' meat dish that my partner endured resembled a crumbling cork erecting itself out of a vintage bottle of Barolo. If only we had the Barolo. The 'Tuna' a friend had, I'd actually mistaken for chicken, as the white tough lump had definitely never gracefully glided anywhere.

When asked if we were happy, I politely mentioned the quality of the meats, to be told it was local. This is not true and cannot be used as a get out clause to try and disguise to foreign visiters the poor quality of what they are providing.

Not good.
