Good hot food, cool service

Must have been an off day for the server because there was no smile or welcome. The rooms are clad in rustic wood which helps to give a warm feel and there are plenty of interesting objects. I had a crepizza which was a mix of cheese tomato and ham on a pancake with salad. It tasted very... read more

We visit St Gervais every year and had the chance to experience most eateries there. We have decided last summer however not to waste our money anywhere and delight our taste buds at 4 epices. Best cheese fondue in France😀. Thank you anf keep up the good work!

We did have a problem swapping the water because there looked to be a strand of parmesan in it but don't let that put you off...The whole of the rest of the experience was superb. The goats cheese salad as a starter was immense, the steak main course excellent, the crepe tatin wonderful and the wine a fabulous complement...you have... More

We visit this restaurant every year when we come to ski. The food is incredible and good value for money, and although there is a language barrier with the staff (my French is awful), they're always so welcoming and the service is great.

The restaurant is very casual and the one waitress really worked hard taking care of everyone. The food was very good - tartiflette and risotto. It's a place to enjoy your food, relax, and not be in a hurry.

We hadn't booked but just took a chance, so pleased we did. Once again the quality of the food and service was excellent. The menu was partly in English so we could cheat

A little bit of old St Gervais still remains here in the 4 Epices. Lovely traditional mountain dishes in a cosy alpine setting. Best and friendliest service of all the restaurants we ate in on this trip. Book before you visit on a Saturday- even though the village was almost empty as the season was over, the 4 Epices was...
