Our recent dinner at La Sauvageonne cost €1000 for four adults and three children---and that entailed ordered reasonably priced local wines. The prices here are utterly ridiculous--for both food and wine. An entree of green beans cost €28. The food is mediocre. Not clear that pork should be served so rare that it is bloody. And the service was awful.... More

This is a very expensive restaurant but I don't think it is worth to visit... With the positioning they have, you expect better service and better food. Everything was average except the bill!

The location is fabulous with a great outdoor terrace and loungers to take in the mountain and sun. It's really a shame the service was so horrible and the prices were so high. We had to ask several times for water, wine, bread, silverware, etc. Almost to the point I thought our waiter was hard of hearing, as it took... More

The sweetbreads dish was tiny,the vegetables overcooked as only the French still do and the half bottle... More

Service was great. My chateaubriand was amazingly good . Wine excellent. Deserts as well. Thevonly thing that bothered us, was that we had to reconfirm reservation 3 times before arriving.

This is my 3rd visit to the restaurant, obviously I enjoyed the experience the 1st 2 times. I was one of the unlucky ones to get the 1st seating booking. Everything from welcome to the exit was rushed and rude. I would have enjoyed my evening more if I had walked in handed over my credit card and then left... More

It is a beautiful restaurant away from Megeve center of Village. You will have to go by car or taxi. But be careful with taxi prices in Megece. They can be more expensive than the restaurant itself... The decor is interesting and the atmosphere is live with good music played a little loud (but it is possible to talk and... More

The quality of the food was the lousiest that we experienced in Megeve for astronomical prices. We were put as a party of three amongst a private 18th birthday party that took place in the whole restaurant. Absolutely ridiculous unless you enjoy birthday speeches during your dinner conversation. The food was inedible since the focus of the kitchen was on... More

The total experience is a pleasure, from the Bar with DJ to the great atmosphere in the dining room followed by a truely memorable Dinner. The food and staff are 1st class and should qualify for higher honours.
