Stopped unplanned for lunch. Great service and nice varied food delivered very promptly. Lovely beer. Massive salads, proper chicken nuggets for the kids.

Friendly staff. Not traditional french cooking. Lovely terrace, food tasteless and lumped on the plate. Served within 5 mins of ordering. Chips hard and cold. Husband had plat du jour at best average. Chicken dish cooked from frozen tasteless. Expensive for quality.

A huge Greek salad and a pork wok with noodles on the terrace on a sunny day were nothing to write home about. Yet, the professional staff with a smile make the difference here.

Remembered this place from last time I visited Flaine about 7 years ago and wasn’t disappointed, service friendly and fast, food good and portion size plenty, don’t plan on skiing straight away as you’ll need a coffee before you go to let the food go...More

We have visited Flaine on many occasions, but we had only ever stopped at this restaurant for drinks. However, this year friends asked us to join them for lunch at L'Epicea, and we were so pleased that we agreed, as it was excellent. Two of...More

Pleasant welcome, good table service and an interesting selection of Savoie and French dishes and wines. Well patronised by French skiers, which in my view is a good sign. Menu includes: foie gras; chili; and diots (local meaty sausage with cabbage in it - I've...More

The food was good and the portions large. The nachos and chips worked for 3 of us. Every mountain on slope restaurant t is expensive I know that but this one seemed overly so but was very popular with the locals. Convenient location.

We ate here twice during our holiday. The food was very good and included a substantial moussaka, chilli and melt-in-the-mouth confit de canard. Service is brisk. The shocker was being charged more than nine Euros for a large sirop with water. I couldn't really fault...More
