Simply fabulous

No other word than fabulous! The wine was simply perfect served in nice big glasses. We shared the assiette and both had the fillet for mains. Both were beyond description. We finished it off with the creme brulee. Slightly glutinous but we were so happy to find a good restaurant on the mountain... read more

We finished it off with the creme brulee. Slightly glutinous but we were so happy to find a good restaurant on the mountain we couldnt help ourselves!

The main restaurant looks nice, but there's an amazing snack bar that's easy to miss underneath. It serves some great croque monsieurs & crepes, as well as delicious beer and coffee. The service here was also exceptional. This was one of the best lunches of the trip!

We visited with friends while kids in lunchtime ski lessons. Wonderful place, awesome view and probably the best steak I've had in a couple of years. Of course the view, ambience and vin chaud probably helped. Visit. It's a must. And go and say Hi to Arthur downstairs. My favourite cafe in the world. Bar none.

Not the cheapest place for lunch but we enjoyed it immensely. Huge portions of very tasty food on a sub soaked terrace watching the skiers around us. And wonderful service too.

I came across this restaurant while skiing in Les Houches and it was a wonderful experience and a lovely place for lunch. The service is quick and the staff charming, plus the food is delicious. The restaurant istself is a typical "Chalet" build with class and nicely decorated. Everything looks clean so you feel pretty confident when you open the... More

Go and enjoy a lovely meal with gorgeous views! One of the few restaurants in the valley with a fireplace to warm your self after a chilly day on the slopes.

Last March my wife and I skied at Le Houches ( pronounced Lu zoosh) in France, 5 miles west of Chamonoix. While skiing, I noticed to the left of the slope, a few minutes above the base, a wooden chalet with large deck. The deck was full of dining skiers. I stopped and quickly noticed three things which I had... More

The lovely sunny terrace of this nicely constructed chalet has wonderful views and could make for a great place to eat. Sadly, I found the staff (especially the manager) to be disinterested and not very friendly, and the prices to be eye-popping. 12 euros for a cake???! We were going to have lunch but whilst I understand that on-slope restaurants... More

Stopped here for some lunch when the weather started to get bad and visibility was poor - and how worth it it was. The staff as always on the pistes were extremely busy but they were nice and polite and asked us to wait a short time whilst they got a table ready. We had a wonderful lunch and treated... More

Excellent chalet restaurant on the slopes of Les Houches. Large sunny terrace with a splendid view. The service is friendly and the menu should satisfy anyone. The prices are conform with what is asked at other restaurants with the same prestige in the valley of Chamonix.
