“Superb food with excellent service”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Le Galeta is a gem of a find focusing on specialties of the Savoyardes . Recommended by the owners of the wonderful hotel we stayed in, Le Regina, we savored every course presented at Le Galeta with great pleasure. The salads were fresh, local greens adorned with shaved local cheese, escargot, and other delightful surprises. I grilled sliced beef and chicken at the table and ate my raclette made with garone cheese and sliced potatoes slowly in order to savor every bite. My husband and I both had dessert Chantilly with raspberries or with nuts. It was our anniversary, so dessert was served with a flourish. The wine offerings were excellent, and the wait service by a woman of vast energy, tops. This restaurant is tucked behind shops so ask for directions to get there. Not difficult to find, but not where you might expect a restaurant.

“Enchanting, tasty, and Fun!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

What a great meal! We are Fondue lovers and theirs was one of the best we have ever had. Sylvie, the owner, was our waitress, and she was so much fun! She and her husband rolled out the awning on the side of the restaurant so we could stay and eat outside during a heavy rainshower and we could hear the local horn band practicing up the street while we ate. It just doesn't get much better than that.
I would absolutely recommend La Galeta to anyone! Ask locals to help you find it - It is tucked away behind the old Barque Chursh in town.

“Fantastic fondue, enormous portions”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

Great place to go with an empty stomach. We had dinner with fondue, grilled shrimp, steak, and lamb as well as several wonderful desserts. Portions are very large and tasty; waitstaff friendly, but very busy, so plan on a longer night.

“cracking !!”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We visited on the last night of our holiday due to them being fully booked the previous 4 nights. The restaurant at 8.00pm on a Sunday night was packed but this did not affect the good and warm service from the waiting staff. Food was outstanding and a reasonably priced wine list was the ‘icing on the cake’. When we return to St Gervais in February ’15 I will pre-book before going for every night of our weeklong stay!!
