Lovely restaurant hidden away behind the town centre

Fantastic restaurant! Meat dishes to die for! Bit hot with a large wood fire. Varied selection on the menu; not just the usual Savoyard things, but that too.

We ate here once, but some of our party went here 3 times in one week, they found it so good. The food is very good, I had the cheese and wine fondue with a meat platter and the taste was lovely and there was so much I couldn't finish it. The service is excellent, they were lovely towards the... More

We are regular visitors to St Gervais in both Winter and Summer. Always go to La Galeta at least once each holiday. Never fails to please, with excellent food and attentive staff who now recognise us each time. We booked a table for last New Years Eve and fully expected to have to pay for the priviledge - but were... More

We come to this restaurant a lot and we always bring our friends - the staff and the food never fail to please! Always charming - always delicious ... and the "coup de coeur" (wine of the month) is always very good.

Off the Main Street just down from the church. Follow the signs. Sat outside on a wonderful evening in a secluded garden. Had a lovely goats cheese starter followed by the duck. High quality food and served at just the right pace. Recommend a bottle of the local red wine. Good value. Finished off by sharing a selection of flavoured... More

This is a very lovely restaurant which is off the main drag on the west side, round the back of the run of bars and restaurants. You go down by the side of the church on the corner and turn right as soon as you can, walk to the end of the small lane, and go down left. It's a... More

The staff was very warm and friendly. The restaurant is charming in its decor. Perhaps, we ordered the wrong dishes, but the food disappointed us in that one dish swimming in cream was lukewarm, at best. We wondered if it might have been sitting out waiting while the other dish, which was fairly hot, finished cooking.

This gem of a restaurant is hidden away behind the main street in St Gervais. It was recommended to us a few years ago and we have enjoyed coming back here every time we are in town! from the street, it looks as if your are walking down a garden path into someone's house - very quaint. The staff are... More

This charming restaurant is tucked away behind the main street in Saint Gervais. You walk through a garden to what looks like a typical Alpine chalet. Cosy and warm inside, low lighting, plenty of rustic character and atmosphere, view over the valley. A great place for meat eaters which is the main attraction although regional specialities -fondue-are also available. Meat... More

Fabulous meal and wonderful atmosphere. the Braserade is such an event and makes the whole evening special. We have visited this restaurant four times in 2015 and would go again.
