This place is a super little restaurant just off the main square in Samoens. The food is a combination of traditional Savoyarde dishes but softened with what I suppose is a "Euro-Asian" twist. Service was excellent and friendly. Will visit again next year PS Apologies to the couple hoping for a romantic meal - Charlie's jokes were quite funny! Top... More

Strong Japanese influence provided a welcome change to the usual (very rich) cheese and meat dominated menus in local eateries. Good sushi to start and a fast tuna dish as a main. Well worth a visit especially if you are looking for something a little different.

Great service, staff with a smile - even for les etranger! Menu covers a good selection from steak to venison, to fish keeping everyone happy. First course arrived in a timely manner - and remaining courses followed suit. Main course excellent - beautifully cooked venison with some imaginative accompaniments. Wine menu was equally well balanced, and we enjoyed a sound... More

Food was delicious but service was very slow indeed - 2 courses took over 2 hours. We had waited so long for the main course we had lost our appetites by the time it arrived. That said the food was excellent.

Le monde a l'envers is located in the very center of Samoens in a typical red house. The decor is unsual and well sought after, very warm and cosy. Food is good and well presented, we had the lunch menu. All the courses were served on one ardoise stone platter, innovative concept, but I guess helps a lot the chef... More

Group of 4 of us visited this restaurant during a stay near Samoens. Service was friendly, informal and prompt (yet not too prompt) and unobtrusive. We had great cocktails and food that was creative, good quality and tasty. I find quite often that restaurants offer a great starter and then a mediocre main. Not so here ! The menu did... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very good meal at Le Monde a l'Envers this evening. Despite the waitress being on her own she managed to serve all 10 tables without anyone seeming to have to wait for any length of time - she was really excellent. The food was well presented and very tasty. We plan to return again... More

Le Monde a L'Envers has a lovely relaxed atmosphere with excellent service & above all superb food. The menu, although not extensive, had a great choice - my family all found it difficult to choose which dish to order as they all sounded delicious. I highly recommend a visit.

We have always enjoyed Le Monde a L'Envers so it was an easy decision to ask Coralie and Boogie if they could host our wedding reception. The whole experience was fantastic, from the menu planning and wine tasting all the way to the event itself. From the superb canapes right the way through three excellent courses, Coralie and Boogie did... More

I attended a wedding reception at the restaurant - the first one they have done and the whole evening was wonderful. There was a wonderful outside area to stand and sit around while we had drinks and canopes before we went inside for dinner. Everything was perfect - food was absolutely divine. We had wonderful canopes to start with and... More
