Great place to go with an empty stomach. We had dinner with fondue, grilled shrimp, steak, and lamb as well as several wonderful desserts. Portions are very large and tasty; waitstaff friendly, but very busy, so plan on a longer night.

We visited on the last night of our holiday due to them being fully booked the previous 4 nights. The restaurant at 8.00pm on a Sunday night was packed but this did not affect the good and warm service from the waiting staff. Food was outstanding and a reasonably priced wine list was the ‘icing on the cake’. When we... More

Took my nephew for dinner last Sunday. Excellent table round the back, friendly staff. Had 'le menu' (great value) which consisted of a huge salad followed by the masterpiece of an oven on the table for melting beautiful local cheese. The whole experience, and the food was wonderful. My only complaint was that - despite a full day's skiing -... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our chalet hosts for their night off and we were thoroughly delighted by their choice. It is hidden away from the main street but easy enough to find. Once inside you are greeted by the sight of various tender cuts of meat being grilled in full view of the diners. To me this is... More

We visit Saint Gervais several times a year, and La Galeta is the one place we always make sure we eat at when in town. Attentive service, a lovely setting in an old chalet style building, good menu and the wood burning fire used for cooking all make for a really special Savoyarde experience. The staff are always lovely, and... More

I hadn't expected to be able to book a table for our family group of eight on the evening of 26th December but "pas de probleme" replied M. Serge Pognant to my email request - the same response when we included three family friends. We had a special long table set up for us. Many of the party had lamb... More

In the winter we enjoy the cosiness of the inside and the wood burning fire which is used for cooking as well as heating. Whilst in the summer we enjoyed dining outside on the terrace,. Either way the food, atmosphere and service is always great. I would recommend booking, you won't be able to get a table without booking at... More

This restaurant, tucked away near the main square of St. Gervais, offers a diversity of dining options---whether outside on the patio with a wonderful view at sunset or inside with rustic wood paneling and fire-grill. It's classic European....friendly, not pushy; informative, but not over-bearing. The local cheeses and foods are nicely explained by the staff, as well as the wine... More
