Description: Le Delice is a cosy yet elegant bistro style restaurant situated in the picturesque Chamonix Valley village of Les Houches. We serve fresh, locally sourced modern european and fusion food for lunch and dinner. We have a small but well selected menu with good wines and cocktails. We can also accommodate private parties. Open 11am to 1am everyday during high season, summer and winter.

We only went to this restaurant because unlike the others they start serving dinner at 1830 in stead of 1900 and we were hungry after a day on the slopes.

What a brilliant choice and find this was. The hosts were really friendly. I can be very fussy when it comes to food and Le Delice certainly lived up to my expectations. The food was fantastic. I had the streak and this was cooked to perfection. My wife had the Risotto and she thoroughly enjoyed it.

We wanted to explore other restaurants but found ourselves back there again almost every night. Some reviews mention the price but this is quite normal for this part in France and you do get what you pay for.

If you would like to eat here make sure to call ahead for a booking as it can be very busy.

If we return to this part of France again we would certainly make a trip back to this restaurant.

Thanks guys(Especially for my LARGE birthday steak!)

A group of 14 of us (ages 15 - 59) came here twice during our recent ski trip. On both occasions we took over the small basement room next to the kitchen and had a wonderful time. As discussed elsewhere the food has some traditional Savoyarde elements (the lamb with white bean mash) but it also gives an opportunity to escape the ubiquitous ham and melted cheese. Whilst the food is very good, what takes Le Delice to another level is the exceptional service, particularly considering the tiny kitchen! On both occasions our orders were a little messy (people sharing starters; starters as main courses etc) but the staff coped incredibly well and all of the dishes arrived at the right time, to the right people with no confusion, questions or dramas.

On our second visit (Friday night), there was also some live music in the main restaurant upstairs but the evening finished with the singer/guitarist joining us downstairs for an encore!

Unfortunately we did not eat here until our last night in Les Houches. Excellent food at a reasonable price. It was nice to find an alternative to the usual Savoyarde food which we like but cannot eat too much off. The service was good as well. Refreshingly nice after feeling completely ripped off in Chamonix a couple of nights a go. This was a great find.

The musical entertainment was great as well. Pitched at just the right level and so was not too intrusive.

Would definitely eat here again.

We went to Le Delice 3 times and it only got better every time. The food is fantastic, the staff are very friendly, Siobhan was very helpful. The patatas bravas were the best i have ever had and the risotto was fab. My 7 year old loved this place too real chicken and fish no frozen nuggets here. If your in Les Houches you have to go here, make a booking it popular for good reason.
