5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Positioned on the mountain side at a ski run junction between Morzine and Les Gets. The best food at Chavannes.Excellent food menu served by professional staff. Reasonably priced.For none skiers it provides an excellent outside seated viewing area and can be reached by the local Telecabin.

“Excellent selection of meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

This restaurant is well worth a visit if you are looking to have something a bit more substantial than the food on offer at the cafes on the slopes. Easily accessible at the top of the Chavannes cable car/bubble. Like most of the restaurants that we have eaten at in Les Gets you can feel a little cramped compared to English restaurants - typically 6 people get seated round a table that would be for 4 people in England.

However, we never let that put us off, as the food is plentiful, well presented and very appetizing. The salads were particularly tempting - 2 of us had the salmon one whilst another member of our party had the duck one.

Including drinks 6 of us ate for 135 euro which we thought was reasonable considering where you are.

“Outstanding & very convenient family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

Probably the best restaurant up on the mountains in the les Gets/
Morzine ski area. The place is very well located by the top of the Chavannes bubble, making it incredibly convenient to meet non-skiers, parents, friends and ski class returnees.
The place is family run for 20+ years and runs like a well oiled machine - they are friendly, welcoming and incredibly efficient - service is usually very quick even at the very busiest times.
It is important for anyone visiting Croix Blanche to understand that they do NOT allow you to book in advance, nor sit at a table with part of your group waiting for the rest to arrive. They are very clear about this with signs in all languages clearly stating this so I am amazed by the reviews that have stated this is somehow unfair or poor service. Quite the contrary, when you do get your group together, you are usually seated very quickly (typically 5, no more than 10 mins) and as above, the food arrives very promptly.
Given this, you might expect the food to be average but it is anything but! Even basic staples like cheeseburger and fries are regarded with reverence by my kids as simply 'the best anywhere on earth' and many agree. But with an extensive menu that ranges from this sort of simple skier fare right up to grilled prawns in sate with rice, the food is consistently excellent. Mountain fare like tartiflette is excellent but the standout stars of their menu are their salads - the salad poulet (chicken salad) being a family favourite - massive, always fresh and incredible sauté potatoes with it too. Biggest criticism is that the wine list could be a bit more varied, so if that's the worst we can come up with, after 10 years of visiting, then this place deserves 5 stars for the combination of quality, consistency and service.
Frankly my only concern about writing this review is that it will attract even more people to what is already clearly in the top one or two of the best mountain restaurants on the hill!

“Good family food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013 via mobile

We dined on the terrace with a couple of other families, a mixture of children and adults. We had very reasonably priced food and wine which really hit the spot for a ski lunch. Not haute cuisine but cooked well and served by friendly staff in a very pleasant environment. Would recommend this restaurant for a lunch of this nature.
