“a memorable skiing experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

If you are skiing in Megeve or St Gervais you must, must, must try La Raviere
It's unlike any other mountain restaurant we have ever tried because it's so remote so when you arrive you feel as though you really deserve your meal or drink
There are three routes, two by ski and one to walk
The food is mainly Alsacienne which means great wine
The service is so friendly
The views cannot be beaten
You must book
See you at La Raviere?

“Hansel & Gretel Hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

Fantastic mountain restaurant hidden away on a tiny track off a quiet run. One small sign directs you down a narrow ski track (would be scary for beginners) to a beautiful small mountain hut. Service, lunch and wine were excellent and good value for Megeve. Book ahead as it is very small - one of the best mountain restaurants we have ever visited!

“Excellent service and food in quaint cosy environment away from the crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

On seeing the sign to the restaurant from the piste myself and three grown up children decided to sample this off the beaten track (but not too difficult) restaurant and were very happy to have been squeezed in (normally a call in advance is required due to its small size).

Food, ambience and service were excellent ... do make the effort to make a booking and take the time to enjoy.

“Very Special Megeve Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

I don't know why this is listed under St Gervais as its in the Megeve ski area. Anyway have been there twice now. It's quite a hike to get there and you have to take your skis off a couple of times but it is a great place for lunch. Booking essential as they have very few tables and no credit cards. there is a less tiring way to get there off piste but you need to know your way. Half our party attempted this and had to climb a long way back up having gone too far down.

Food is quite simple and meaty and not gourmet but that is the style of the place. You have a couple of small tables and a couple of large ones and they will sometimes put you with another group. The lady who runs everything is charming and couldn't be more helpful. I made the mistake of wishing one of the cooks good day on the way out and he grunted at me in a very miserable fashion. Not surprising considering the size of his kitchen!

Worth a visit.
