Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Food and ambience

Special Occasion Dining, Romantic, Business meetings
A charming Refuge, typical and friendly, on the heights of the resort. It serves a real chef's cuisine, fine and tasty, and the inevitable Savoyard of course. Among the specialties: poached egg with green lentils; rack of lamb at the rotisserie; Grand Marnier Soufflé. Located at the end of nowhere in a rustic and warm atmosphere. Old wood decor, Savoyard pottery, opinels knives, linen towels. As soon as the warm weather arrives, the large terrace is an invitation to contemplate the great outdoors.

Very nice mountain restaurant, away from the village in the middle of mountains. Nice staff and good food but very expensive for my opinion. Wine was very expensive too. Book in advanced because is very full.

Adorable restaurant a little off the beaten path of Megève. Not vegan-friendly, nor truly vegetarian-friendly (meaning not many options), but there is a fondue served with bread (no other accoutrements) for vegetarians. The green salad is adorned with a plain, typical mustard vinaigrette. However everything...More
