Well priced and definitely cheerful

Relatively good value for money - compared to others in Meribel - and very nice food served by an efficient staff. Always seems busy - need any more be said.

We were looking for a quick bite to eat in the extortionate town of Meribel. Our decision was pizza and we found La Flambée advertised a takeout pizza from €13. As soon as we entered, we were met by an arrogant waitress. It may be the general attitude of the locals but it's not really called for. Paying €19 for... More

Dear client, The Restaurant "La Flambée" is the only restaurant in the whole Meribel valley who proposes pizzas cooked in a wood fire, this is the best way to cook them to get an excellent taste. The pizza at 19€ is the pizza at Raclette cheese with on top Italian delicatessen which is not difficult to success but indeed not... More

It's 3 years since we were in Meribel when we discovered this restaurant and ate there 4 or 5 times so when staying in Courchevel with a car we dared the fog and sleet and found it. We didn't have a reservation but were seated downstairs without any fuss. Food was very good although slimmer portions perhaps than I remember.... More

Have visited every year for 4 years. Great food, lovely setting downstairs, not so fussed for upstairs. Food prices are in comparison with elsewhere. Expensive but good quality and generous portions. Service is never friendly but they are not unfriendly. There was a family with 3 children who weren't noisy as such but a couple beside them asked to move... More

A traditional allrounder in two floors. They have a great variety of dishes from pizza to local specialities. We had a fondue savoyarde royale for five hungry skier. It was one of the best fondues we have had in Meribel and we coudn't even empty the cheese pot. The appetizers were not that special but still ok. Make sure to... More

Waiter must have been having an off night because we felt like we were being punished by him when 2 of our party cancelled after the other 4 had already been seated at a table for 6. He insisted on moving us to a smaller table after we'd ordered drinks and were ready to order our meals even though there... More

Dear Client, Without a reservation (for an evening for which our second service was fully booked), we accepted you for the first service and we placed you on a table for 6 as you said you will be 6, we served you the drinks immediately but had to wait for 35 min before you said that finally 2 persons will...

Noticed this place during our first day so decided to visit a few days later on our chalet staff day off. This was purely based on the fact that it looked so welcoming from the outside. Staff were welcoming despite the fact we had not reserved, and attentive. Service was great, not non existant nor mega fast. Ambience is one... More

We enjoyed eating in this restaurant and had booked it because it looked so nice from the outside. They did put us upstairs though and it was a little cold and lacked atmosphere. It gets very busy so you need to book but they do give the impression that the service could go into meltdown at any moment.

This is a great restaurant and one of our favourites in Meribel. The food is traditionally Italian, beautifully cooked as you might expect in France. Pizzas are prepared in a traditional oven and there are many other choices. The atmosphere is lively and very friendly. We usually eat here twice or three times during a week in Meribel.

This is a really excellent restaurant. A little noisy but the food is superb. The truffle ravioli are to die for as is the raclette. Sixth visit - keep going back. Make sure to reserve.
