We selected this restaurant based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, and were not dissappointed. We had not booked, but arrived early... actually too early, the kitchen was not open yet. Despite this, we were told to have an aperitif first, by then the kitchen would be available. We had a great meal for a reasonable price. The staff is very... More

We were so tired and hungry when we entered La Marmite and were met very warmly by charming staff who welcomed us and soon served up delicious food. All seven of us were carefully and efficiently served, making us feel very much at home. We would recommend La Marmite to anyone and definitely look forward to returning.

We went with a group of 8 people to La Marmite because of all the good reviews on TripAdvisors. As almost everyone said, the food is incredible! We took a mix of different plates (fromage fondue, bourgogne fondue, raclette and tartiflette). All the dishes were great and you won't regret your choice. The only downside was the very, very poor... More

We just happened to be walking past and went in for dinner which in hindsight was the best move of the night. None of us speak French very well but, the waitress & waiter were both very forgiving and tried their best to understand us. We shared the hot stone grill which was incredible. All of the meat was top... More

This restaurant was recommended by a French man who is working in the resort. So we thought it would be a safe bet, And it was! They do have a waitress who can speak English (and others that can get by), but make the effort to speak French, it wont go unnoticed. We ordered the Foie and caramelised apples to... More
