Restaurants and Dining


St Gervais Mountain Restaurants

There’s a huge choice of on-mountain dining in the region of Saint Gervais, with more than two-dozen restaurants spread across the various sectors. The majority are small to mid-sized locally-owned establishments and there’s a higher proportion of table-service establishments than you’ll normally find, for which it’s advisable to book a table in advance if you can. See the Megeve and Les Houches reviews for some examples of restaurants in their sectors.

At Le Bettex at the base of the slopes both Causettes (+33 (0)4 50 93 13 92) and La Coterie are both good. The former has table service and a good terrace with wonderful views, the latter with favourite French and Savoyard dishes and a good choice of grilled meats. La Fleche d’Or nearby is also good and serves traditional cuisine in a lovely wooden restaurant or out on the terrace.
