This is a typical French restaurants up on the slopes offering an excellent lunch. Their food is extremely well balanced and tasty and offers an enjoyable atmosphere either in or out (weather permitting) to indulge in a leisurely lunch. Their portions are quite substantial and the wine menu is well stocked. The service, despite a busy lunch time was attentive,... More

The mountain views are exquisite and all outside tables have a sunny position ( sun permitting) We ate here on three occasions during a four day break,... More

We'd been skiing for the morning and I'd seen this place before so decided to try it. We chanced our arm and went in at 12 noon, firstly we were asked if we had booked, which we hadn't but if we were out by 1pm then we could dine. We jumped at the chance, the menu is plentiful and to... More

We had lunch here whilst skiing. The restaurant is excellently located near the Belvedere lift and so very easy to get to. Inside has table service and is very typically Alpine in style and menu. The staff were really friendly and the food was plentiful and extremely good. I would highly recommend this place - it does seem to get... More

One of those places on the mountain where you won't get a table at lunch without reservation. It's very busy at lunch time and that doesn't stop until the lifts close. Their 'croûte' is the best on the mountain, a must try dish if you're a cheese fan. The restaurant is strategically located so you can always get down to... More

This is a seriously good restaurant. A level above the standard Morzine burger n pizza fare. If you are a non-skier its worth the effort as its a 500m walk up the slope at the top of the Le Pleney bubblecar. Go there

Family run, very cosy, great food. Highly recommend booking. Easy to reach at the top of several lifts from Morzine / Les Gets. Great atmosphere and reasonably priced (for the mountains). Staff are efficient and friendly. Love it.

We had to wait for ages and the waiter was rude. Food came out and we didn't even finish it. What a waste of time. Next time make more of an effort and ski over to the mont chery for awesome food and service for the same price
