We have always enjoyed the setting and meals here, but the recent change of management has elevated the experience even further. The menu is short but offers several tempting options, with both local and international flavours. The venison was superb - tender and tasty - and the duck equally delicious. Good choice of wine, not overpriced. Complimentary Genepi with the bill is always a nice touch!
The atmosphere was buzzing with all but one table for 2 occupied, and the waiting staff friendly and attentive.
We will definitely be back next year!

Our taxi driver recommended this as his favorite restaurant and we weren't disappointed. A lovely setting with lots of character, and delicious food. I had the venison, my wife had the duck and my son a huge piece of braised ham. All were top quality and this will be first on our list when return to Flaine next year.

For Christmas we made a reservation at this restaurant based on the previous reviews of Trip advisor. When we arrived, we found out that the restaurant had just re-opened with a new owner and another concept (smelly cheese). We decided to try anyway since it was Christmas and Flaine does not have much choice and it had been quite a challenge to reach the restaurant in snow and ice. The surrounding of the farm is beautiful, but the menu is very limited. One of us ordered the main course potato dish, which appeared as very little in a very small bowl. If it wasn't for the price it must have been a side dish. We are used to pay for good food and we know when you don't pay much you don't get much. But here things mixed up as pay much and get little in quantity and quality.
The wine was very good but overall we were very disappointed that this was our X-mass dinner. Maybe if you like cheese give it a try, it's a long walk.

We were recommended this restaurant by reception at the Montsoleil apartments we were staying at. We really enjoyed our evening and it was wonderful to eat in a restaurant that is run with a passion. The owner and chef came to talk to us during the evening which was lovely and the overall atmosphere was very convivial. The food was very very good - the special of pork medallions was beautifully cooked. We also had some local white wine, recommended by our waitress, which was very good. Deserts were great too with us enjoying a lemon mousse, chocolate pudding, and a baked apple dessert. Make sure you visit one evening when you are in Flaine.

As an occasional visitor to Flaine, I now make it a habit to dine at La Ferme du Sartot each time I'm in town. The setting is an old wooden farmhouse simply but tastefully appointed, a bit out of the way (near the "Front de Glace"). Reservations are required, though the staff will gracefully accept walk-ins should there be room at the inn (which is not always the case). Do yourself a favour, make a reservation.
La Ferme du Sartot is what the French call "confidentiel" , a bit of a secret, usually first encountered by word-of-mouth : there are no signs on the building, and finding it is the first challenge for the worthy !
The atmosphere is cozy, the staff cheerful and bilingual, and the food --ah ! the food ! -- is outstanding. The chef uses the freshest ingredients available, makes all of his own soups, sauces, and desserts. I'm told that many customers come back just for the sake of the homemade desserts, and I can easily believe it although I am personally more of an afficionado of soups. The best soups I've ever had anywhere, bar none. Main dishes are beautifully prepared, with flavours perfectly balanced. All of this complemented by a very good wine list featuring many local wines of high quality and reasonable cost.
All of this doesn't come cheap, obviously, but the prices are far closer to the typical fondue restaurants' than the multi-starred restaurants of Megève, although you'd never know it once you taste the wonderful food. This is truly great value for your hard-earned money.
If you want to have a memorable, affordable and delicious meal, this is the place to go.
