We were only in Samoens region for 9 days but went to Le Monde a l'Envers four times for lunch it was that good. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, not too pushy and best of all was the quality of the food. So tasty and fresh. Good wine list helped as well. Well done keep up the good work we'll be... More

A husband and wife team run this lovely little spot in Samoëns. There's plenty of good food to be had in the area, but much of it is traditional - not a bad thing, but sometimes a more inventive approach is a treat. This place will not disappoint. They are also able to provide for vegetarian and gluten-free needs, particularly... More

We came too early but were invited in, given a drink, and something little to keep the hunger at bay until they opened. Great food and service, and a nice ambiance

We've eaten our way around most of the restaurants in Samoens now & Le Monde a l'Envers is the "standout" best. A great escape from savoyarde fair, it has excellent service & a wonderful ambience.

Four of us booked for a birthday meal. Warm welcome, the place was comfortable and inviting. The menu was small but clearly this allows the kitchen to concentrate on taste and quality which were superb. The wine list too is small but offers sufficient choice at good value. The tempura starter was delicious and the steak Rossini too was excellent.... More

This was the best restaurant we ate at in Samoens. It was quaint, the service was good and personal. The food was well prepared and tasty and although it was not on the menu catered to our children of 8 and 10 with a hamburger and fries. My husband and I enjoyed the creative menu and good wine list.

Not sure what this restaurant is trying to be. The service is excellent and the menu looked sort of promising but somehow it failed to be fabulous. What on earth is sushi doing on a French restaurant's menu? If it's an effort to be 'fusion' - I think they failed to understand it means various cuisines in one dish, not... More

Lovely restaurant in French skiing and hiking village of samoens. Interior of calming terracotta coloured walls . Welcoming staff, helpfully translating menu into English for us . Wonderfully tasting goats cheese in filou pastry starter perfectly balanced balsamic salad dressing cutting through it, kids thoroughly enjoyed Margaret de canard and excellent steak, and venison fillets too . Good place to... More
