Great for quick lunch

Comprehensive snack and a la carte menu. Lots of local dishes. Service was good and quick. The location is also very good for meeting up with kids at the end of ski school. Only stopped for lunch but 60€ for 5 including drinks was well worth it.

First night meal and didn't disappoint. Traditional local food. Kids catered for with fresh chicken goujons and chips and usual Savoyard cheese dishes. I opted for filet de beouf which was cooked to perfection. Good value wines in glass carafe and bottles. Busy so book unless eating out early. Thanks

Our 3 sons love the pizzas; the excellent omelettes. We love the delicious and big salads; les frites and the fabulous deck chairs in the sunshine!

Had lunch here 3 times whilst on our short skiing break and also several pit stops. The staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome and obviously recognised us on our return visits. Good choice of food for lunch. Not fancy but very tasty and filling. Very efficient service. As you can tell, we really liked it here!

Lovely little restaurant with a good variety of savoyard dishes as well as the usual crowd pleasers. Easy to get to from the slopes with a large seating area outside too. The staff are always good and can mix a good mojhito!

We popped into this place early morning for a quick breakfast. The service was first class and the food very reasonably priced. We were surprised how busy it was in the summer as it was the first time visiting Les Menuires at this time of year. We will be back again in the winter and be sure to try this... More

We tried dinner here while skiing. The food was quite standard but the atmosphere is good and the staff are extremely courteous. I had the steak and my dining partner a salad. Both were reasonably good dishes. I think the specialty here is definitely the mountain food (raclette, fondue) so I would try these if going back for dinner. During... More

tartiflet - poor, meat - also. Didn't like. Crepes - ok. Coffee - poor. Took raclete - was ok, fondue - so-so; meat on stones was not bad.

Cheese dishes are a speciality and the Mont d`Or cheese baked in its box accompanied by charcuterie and potatoes was superb. Pleasant staff and good value.

The only spot where I could get a coffee to go in the morning (on my way home after placing the kid to the ski school). The coffee was good, and on my 4th (and last day) the barman gave it to me for free.
