We have eaten in le Basilic many times over the years. However the food has taken a step up in quality since our last visit, and the service remains excellent. It is the only restaurant open in the centre of les Houches in low season, and allowed us to eat locally rather than drive into Chamonix. I had the terrine,... More

After spending a lot of time back and forth to les Houches this summer we have eaten most places and this is a cute little place which I think is family run and it shows as they seem to really care. The menu is a nice mix of local French and some other more modern cuisine. We felt very looked... More

Faced the challenge of getting the last night of holiday restaurant selection to be memorable. Checked all the on line reviews beforehand. Courses all reasonable but none of group thought any course stood out. Wine disappointing. Overall average rather than good but a significant bill. Staff pleasant.

Had an evening meal here one night, and it was that good we returned the night after. The staff were very welcoming, and the service was fantastic. If you are visiting Les Houches make a beeline for this place. The food was super tasty and plentiful! It's very cosy with a really good ambience, would definitely return.

You definitely need to book at this restaurant. We enjoyed fondue which was very generous. Good local dishes and an interesting variety. Good service. A bit squashed but bearable!

This is our "home town" restaurant, for sure the best aux Houches where we go to ski. The place is quite small and cozy, always crowded on any night, so sometimes the service is a little slow, best not to be in a hurry, just have an aperitif! The food is very good. The lamb, the scallops with risotto, the... More

Chose this restaurant because it is number 1 for restaurants on Trip Advisor in Les Houches, having been there I fail to understand why this is the case. It is overpriced, the food is very ordinary, the restaurant is very cramped and the service is terrible. We had booked a table and arrived on time but it took 30 mins.... More

Thank you for your message on trip advisor. We do remember your table that you booked for 9.30 this night which was really busy during the holidays, and you arrive at 9.00 so your table was not ready( 30 min earlier). If we tell you when you book a table by phone, that there is no place before 9.30 it... More

The restaurant is charming and the host is great! The food was good, we oredered home made terrine as starter and was delicious. Had steaks one with morell (mashroom) sauce and another with peppercorn both quite good. The meat was cooked great but lacked bit of seasoning. Finished with nice apple sorbet and we had a lovely dinner. The food... More
