If you want a tepid drink served by fierce staff at similarly fierce prices then this is the place for you! That said, the terrace in the sun is a great place to sit and be growled at ....

This is a typical ski slope restaurant to avoid. The food is mediocre and expensive. The staff are relatively friendly, but as it's poorly organized so it takes forever to get a cold sausage. The location is nice!More

Hi Simon, I seems pretty obvious that your review is a fake. I already knew than dishonesty had no limit, but it makes me really sick when it occurs in an inequitable way. Trying to disrepute such a nice restaurant is just pointless, it's not going to losse any business, or perhaps people like you who like to hide the truth. Why so much hate ? Are you a jealous competitor ? It's so easy to hide and throw your anger behind a computer screen. I dare you to find a restaurant on the slopes of Chamonix which serves better food than "le hors pistes". Price is expensive YES, but for a service that quality that's the purpose. If your 5 stars standards are greeted with a small pizza in Saint-Antoine, maybe you're not able to understand this. By posting fake reviews, you are not only discrediting this restaurant, but the whole tripadvisor community. I just hope that some people will still be able to distinguish the truth, and will not take your jealousy and lies into consideration when choosing a restaurant for a lunch in les Houches.

Dear Simon, I believe I have never contacted another member to complain but to request advices.. I went to this place and wanted to bring my mot her.. So wanted to let her know how excellent it was by showing her the tripadvisor postings and saw yours. First I am really puzzeled by seeing your "1 point": 1) viewing your grades on the different "areas" your average would be 2. So You are inconsistent. 2) You graded "5 points" a rustic place and a pizzeria... I reserve the 5s for outstanding venues .. Apparently pizza and cold cuts are your must. 3) I believe I gave a 1 only once among my 100 reviews and it was for a Frozen pizza behind piazza San Marco in venice.. We are far from there in this restaurant. Second, your "reasonable quality but overpized food": 1) For 16 eur You have an amayzing dish of the day such as the roasted duck with sauteed mashroom and asparagus (2 days ago) or the roasted rabit with fenel & sauteed purple carrots today 2) All their local cheese dishes are around 20 eur... For an exclusive place serving real local food in a smart venue, it is more then far 3) the pastas, fries or salad are expensive indeed.. But this is for sure to keep the place exclusive... At 10 eur the place would be overcrowded 4) if You care about price, choose the "croque monsieur" after 3.00 or go to their snack 1 m below that serves quality snacks Third, your "slow and rude service" 1) we have never experienced a so nice and personalized service (did 5 restaurants and went to hors piste 4 Times) 2) The service at each time was fast and they even excused themselves once as my glass of wine took 10 minutes to arrive You would answer me "for god, why are You writting me all that, and by the way I can post what I want!!!" .. I would answer you "now that you are newly part of this tripadvisor communitee you have a responsibility, not that restaurants or hotels might loose business, but that such posting might avoid travellers like You and me to live a great experience" Hope You will take this under consideration A heavy tripadvisor user
