Very Good Food

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...

We had a great meal at this welcoming, friendly alpine restaurant. The food was of good quality and the service was excellent. We ate with our 14 month old son and the waitress could not have been more helpful. A lovely evening all in all.

We go to St Gervais every year and go to the 4 Epices.. It's great. Unpretentious ham and cheese food. Would recommend to anyone

This place is fine but really, France is supposed to be renowned for good food, and this place is not good enough to survive a week in London. Expect a friendly unpretentious place, average food, and prices that are not too expensive but in my opinion, are a little too high given the basic level of food on offer.

Imagine a cold, very wet holiday evening. Desire for warmth and good food essential. Found both here. We were made so welcome. The food was basic mountain food but very well prepared. The service was exemplary. Would recommend this to anyone
