We were a party of 7 and made our booking at the last minute. Staff were welcoming and took the time to answer our questions about their menu. Food was very nice and good portion size for average eaters. We tried the basilic wine in aperitif and "la Grole" in dessert which was a fun experience. Overall good quality food... More

The restaurant was nicely decorated and the staff was friendly and smiley.The portions are really the smallest ever tasted.The salad was just 2 leafs.The meat was 2 pieces, angus, with a swallow of potatoes for 23 euros!!!!! I believe that this kind of stingy service shows no respect to the client that comes from pistes .

Fabulous food and great atmosphere. Although they didn't advise us when booking there would be 2 sittings so wasn't expecting to have to leave the table. They were very apologetic and gave us a drink on the house. Highly recommend

We have eaten in le Basilic many times over the years. However the food has taken a step up in quality since our last visit, and the service remains excellent. It is the only restaurant open in the centre of les Houches in low season, and allowed us to eat locally rather than drive into Chamonix. I had the terrine,... More

After spending a lot of time back and forth to les Houches this summer we have eaten most places and this is a cute little place which I think is family run and it shows as they seem to really care. The menu is a nice mix of local French and some other more modern cuisine. We felt very looked... More

Faced the challenge of getting the last night of holiday restaurant selection to be memorable. Checked all the on line reviews beforehand. Courses all reasonable but none of group thought any course stood out. Wine disappointing. Overall average rather than good but a significant bill. Staff pleasant.

Had an evening meal here one night, and it was that good we returned the night after. The staff were very welcoming, and the service was fantastic. If you are visiting Les Houches make a beeline for this place. The food was super tasty and plentiful! It's very cosy with a really good ambience, would definitely return.

You definitely need to book at this restaurant. We enjoyed fondue which was very generous. Good local dishes and an interesting variety. Good service. A bit squashed but bearable!

This is our "home town" restaurant, for sure the best aux Houches where we go to ski. The place is quite small and cozy, always crowded on any night, so sometimes the service is a little slow, best not to be in a hurry, just have an aperitif! The food is very good. The lamb, the scallops with risotto, the... More
