“A main street pizzeria”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

Our company of 6 went to La Flambée to eat: we were not disappointed but not enthusiastic either. While the pizzas were ok, and the Savoyard wine gave a nice local flavour, the service left an undefined feeling that something was lacking.
In summary, we might visit it again, or might not.

“Ok, but le refuge is better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

The pizza was ok here and the service average. But for a lift you would be better at le Revuge where the pizza is slightly more expensive but tastes better and the service is much warmer

“Perfect little restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

This place was so good we went 4 times out of our 7 nights in Meribel! We came upon it the first night we arrived and the pizzas were unreal! The restaurant is so popular - always busy but this is no problem at all for the staff who are brilliant. If you get a table downstairs you can see the chefs in action - preparing the food with so much care and attention. The entire atmosphere is lovely, cosy and welcoming. We tried several different things on the menu and everything was so delicious. La Flambee should be number 1 in Meribel!

“Fabulous Flambee!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

We were on a weeks ski trip to Meribel and stumbled across this wee gem of a restaurant. The service was brilliant and watching the pizza guy and other chefs prepare the food added to the novelty. The food was fantastic, fresh and so tasty. The staff, even though there were only 3 waitresses on, had no problem with the service and were so polite and able to speak very good english. We went back 3 times again in the week because we enjoyed it so much . We varied the dishes each night finishing off with the fondue!! Eating quite late on our last night we felt under no pressure to leave as they cleared up. I would highly recommend this restaurant when staying in Meribel and booking is advisable especially on the wednesday nights which are chalet hosts night off.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

We ate here on the Monday night and it was perfectly pleasant, cold in the restaurant but the food was good.

We returned on the Wednesday night with 9 of us and the service was awful, we ordered starters for us all to share and explained this to the waitress (in french - my husband is fluent) but they decided that they would bring the childrens main coiurses at the same time as the starters - but not all at once they came in dribs and drabs with the two youngest who had ordered small pizzas arriving an hour after everyone else!

No apologies, no reduction on the bill, in fact no service at all, We were told afterwards that Wednesday night is when chalet staff have the night off, it was clear they could not cope.
