Burger, chips and beer for 11 euros - great for a lunch time stop with the family or friends. Thoroughly enjoyable experience - worth a visit

A little Intimate restaurant with wonderful food. The Mushroom soup is absolutely one of the best! The sweetbreads are great too.

We arrived to an empty restaurant, but still managed to be ignored by the two waiters for over 20 mins. Only by us having to ask to order did they finally take our order... then locals arrived and we where forgotten about as their aperitifs came and went and our wine had not even arrived. Only when we asked for... More

Dear, I would like to thank you for your opinion for the restaurant Le Plantin. A fondue is not a raclette, therefore a platter of cold cuts or boiled potatoes is not including. We are never opposed to adding complimentury suppliment side dishes. I would like to remind you that this included a return shuttle service to your chalet in... More

We returned for lunch to this restaurant for the first time for at least 5-6 years as previously we felt that whilst the food is good that it is very pricey for what you get. After this visit our view remains exactly the same! We were two couples for lunch with the men having 2 courses (two of which were... More

If you are looking for somewhere special to eat and you are in the 3 Valleys then this is a must visit. The food is spectacular, the restaurant itself is very comfortable in every way and a cut above all of the others that we have visited in the region. The owner was most helpful and attentive and gave excellent... More

Excellent restaurant with spacious seatings and beautiful decoration. Food is amazing and gastronomic. Still fits adults and children. Service is great and staff very friendly. During our Christmas vacation, we went twice so this means we loved it.

I have been to Le Plantin for many years and I have always been rewarded by an excellent lunch or dinner which has been the case today. Earlier this year Le Plantin changed hands (the family owner sold it to the faithful Alexander who had been waiting the tables for years). But the quality remains the same : superb meats... More

This is the best restaurant in Meribel without a doubt. For lunch we had a superb 3 courses for 46 Euros plus wine... For dinner expect more, about 80-100 euros per person with wine. However for top class food in the Meribel valley it takes a lot of beating. Service from Alex the head waiter is superb. They also dropped... More

The restaurant was almost empty and no wonder. Incredibly over priced. No wonder the menu was half in Russian. Grotty cheese fondu for the children and charged us about £100 for it!!!
