The menu was in french but the server took time in explaining that to us in English. Very attentive service when needed. Food was really good. Atmosphere was also nice. Recommend to people travelling to les contamines.

By far my favourite restaurant in this quirky town. As a vegan, travelling and eating our in France can be tough. The owner/chef at L'o a la Bouche always makes the most amazing effort to out together exquisite dishes. An absolute must, and a special treat for everyone!

We have been going to the Contamines for may years and we usually have at least one dinner at this restaurant (the fancy or rustic one). And the food in both places is good, even sometimes excellent in the fancy one. Probably one of the best addresses in the village to be frank but prices can be a bit high... More

This place is a real treat to visit when in Les Contamines. The set menu with wine pairing is not cheap but is worth it for a special occasion. The variety of dishes that are served is excellent and the wine selection we received was superb. Would definitely recommend for a special night out but probably not one with young... More

Always fully booked so you'd better book in advance to taste their delicious meals. If you want to change from the usual mountain food that you can find everywhere in the ski resort, this is a great alternative for fine dining at a decent price. Good service, innovative cuisine, fresh ingredients will provide you with a great night out with... More

I've eaten here in the past and raved about it...so took some friends here. It was all a bit of a let down. We had the set menu with wine accompaniment. The dishes were of mixed quality (main course was very good), the wine likewise (we ended up ordering our own choice). Do give it a go as I think... More

We went here for a special dinner and certainly had that. We had the 7 course tasting menu and every course was exceptional. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. There is a real buzz in the restaurant but the tables are well spaced. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a super place, the menu is varied and each choice was scrumptious. The three of us had the 33euro menu. The portion sizes were generous and a good selection of fish & meat. The deserts are an art - stunning presentation and flavours to savour. We also like the local regional wine selection. There was also an amuse... More

One of the best meals I've had recently, and very reasonable prices, although the wines are a bit on the pricey side. Stick with the perfectly acceptable Cote du Rhone at 25 euros, and you'll enjoy a lovely dining experience.
