Description: With a beautiful slope-side location, Courchevel's first three Michelin-starred restaurant Le 1947 reveals a refined leather-clad decor, catering to only 25 guests every evening, in a single seating. Each season, Chef Yannick Alleno creates a series of seasonally-inspired menus, offering Cheval Blanc Courchevel's guests a unique culinary experience. The chefs of Le 1947 extract the quintessence of each ingredient, designing delightful one-of-a-kind dishes that inspire the palate. With an open kitchen, gastronomes are invited to have a peek of the chefs at work, and are often invited to step behind the scenes to add their own culinary touch to some of Chef Alleno's signature dishes.

“Wow! *”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2013

This was not our first visit to a restaurant at the Cheval Blanc hotel, but it was our first experience at the "restaurant gastronomic" which opened last year at this hotel. You walk into the open space architecture of the small restaurant and can not help but appreciate the unique decor. They have two versions of a tasting menu - a short or a full version of "an experience". And what an experience it was - a wide variety of small dishes, each beautifully presented and very creative. There is not much to choose from but they would gladly accommodate any dietary restrictions. The only caveat (which is why I have the asterisk in the headline of the review) - you may need to cash a portion of your retirement fund to pay for the meal. Otherwise - an awe inspiring experience!

“Impressive 2 star Michelin experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

Ate here on Valentine's day, 2013. Exclusive and hip - the restaurant only has 5 tables with an open kitchen, where you are invited to walk in at will and see how the chef prepares your food. Chefs are extremely welcoming and friendly, which adds greatly to the gastronomic experience. Both Maitre'D and head chef was hospitable and international (both had worked extensively in Asia). The staff to guest ratio was almost 1-to-1, which offered a very high level of attention. The restaurant offers 2 menus - a full 20 course tasting menu (400 Euro) or a "lighter" menu (300 Euro). We opted for the lighter menu, and were completely full by the 6th course (even before reaching our main course). If you order the full tasting menu, be sure you stay hungry the whole day leading up to your meal. The food is amazing (except for the actual main course which was good but short of amazing). Wine list is extensive, including some incredible Cheval Blanc vintages (pricey).

1947 is located inside the Cheval Blanc hotel, which is very chic, and worth a visit.

If you only have 1 meal in Courchevel, then this is the place to go.

Only downside? Our sommelier managed to spill our wine onto the table (and some onto my wife) while pouring. I'm sure it was an isolated incident and he offered us free desert wine as a result.

If you are staying elsewhere, you can ask Cheval Blanc to send their shuttle to pick you up (and send you home afterwards). Very convenient!
