Reviewed 24 December 2013

We enjoyed very much the experience together with our kids. Wine selection was very good as well as the service and hospitality.

The food was very good. I enjoyed the truffle menu and was wonderful.

“This is my most favourite restaurant in The Meribel Valley”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Excellent service, superb food, beautiful decor, a lovely dining experience. The views are also stunning from the restaurant. You can ski to it in winter,then they take you by mini bus back to the lift i Meribel Village. A great service, to then ski off the lunch!

“A superb meal, wonderful surroundings, highly recommended”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

We ate in the Plantin restaurant last week for the first time in a long time. What we discovered was truely a first class dining experience. We were warmly greeted by our waiter for the evening, Alex and we had pre-dinner drinks at the bar. Wild Boar paté and local hams were just a few of the pre-dinner nibbles we enjoyed. We were then shown to our table in the beautiful restaurant. The decor is authentic and stylish, every detail has been carefully thought out (even down to a humourous touch in the toilets!) and it creates a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
Our meal was divine. My friend ordered jerusalum artichoke soup - it was to literally to die for. I had hot foie gras - again delicious. For the main course we had a selection of dishes, spring lamb, lake fish with aspagarus butter and filet of beef. I tried them all (!) and each dish was beautifully presented and a joy to eat. The portions sizes were generous without being obscene.
We had eaten very well during first 2 courses so decided against dessert until Alex persuaded us to try a cafe gourmande. What a joy! It was a stunning dessert comprising of about 5 smaller desserts (see photo) and an expresso coffee. Exquisite. The owner Robert joined us at the end of the meal and offered us a local tipple made with a local plant and some strong alcohol but it was a perfect end to a wonderful evening. The service was faultless, the food amazing (so much better than some star rated restatuants in this area) and the welcome warm and friendly. I cannot recommend Le Plantin highly enough. Thank you Robert, it was a fantastic evening.
