First discovered Le Delice last year, and booked for a revisit in advance of travelling, boy, we weren’t disappointed.

Chris and the team take service and quality to new levels. During our week’s holiday, we ate here three times, on the second occasion for my wife’s birthday, which the team at Le Delice dressed the table fabulously – see attached photo.

My wife, loved the steak, lamb shank and salmon; every meal was exceptional. Being a vegetarian myself and having had the Butternut squash twice, I asked Chris for an alternative, which he readily accommodated – a Fennel, blue cheese dish – amazing.

In summary, I’d strongly recommend booking in advance of arrival – especially during school holiday period, - and you will definitely not be disappointed by the finest cuisine you’ll experience in the French Alps.

Unusual menu for the Alps which makes a nice change, delicious and fresh ingredients! Great restaurant, a 10 minute walk from my hotel, Slalom. My second visit and I wasn't disappointed, will be back in March!

The food was excellent, service good but very expensive to eat there especially with a family of 6.
I suppose you get what you pay for but it was a treat.

Hi Douglas,

Thank you so much for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your meal at Le Delice and thought that it was a treat for yourself and your family.

I apologise that you feel it was expensive, however all of our food and wine is fresh, hand-selected and locally sourced. In addition, absolutely everything is home-made, right down to the base stock for all of our sauces. We strive to ensure that our prices are on a par with any other similar establishment in the area, and we feel that we have managed to achieve this whilst still maintaining a high standard.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Les Houches and look forward to welcoming you back at Le Delice in the future.

Kind regards,

Chris and Fi

An all around great local restaurant with inspiring menu, lots of guests and impressive management. A must visit if you feel like a meal or just a drink. The bar offers lots of chances to talk to both locals and other visitors in a easy environment, as tourists we got served up with helpful tips about the mountains together with a good deal of laughs that made our stay even better. Be sure to bring a smile and you will not be disappointed. Thank you Chris and Fiona for our wonderful evenings

My wife & I loved this place so much. It's small and cosy. We walked in at about 4.45pm and managed to get the last table reservation for dinner. The food here was absolutely awesome! Even though we were full from the huge generous portion, we couldn't stop going till our plates were clean. They also serve good house wine and house fries. Highly recommended!
