The Kitsch Inn wasn't hard to find, although it is off the main street of Les Houches. The staff was kind in working with us considering the language barrier. The food was different, but very good overall and I would recommend this a try for breakfast.

Fantastic service from bilingual English/French speaking staff, great menu, from breakfast and snacks to dinner. 2 specials every day which always includes one veggie dish and excellent vegetarian options on the regular menu. We came a couple of times for... More

If you are looking for enormous portions this is the place to come. The food is delicious and well prepared. The welcome was warm and friendly. I was pleased to see several veggie options. However if you are looking for French ambience this is not the place as it seemed entirely English speaking. There was live music so a bit... More

I am sorry to hear that you did not find our burger and beers correctly priced. This is a very unusual complaint as since our reopening in Jan 2014 we have had nothing but compliments for our new and improved burger and competitive beer prices. Let me also add that our 200g homemade burger made from free-range Label Rouge fresh... More

I've been coming to and from the Chamonix valley for years now and I really love les Houches in particular. I heard about the kitsch Inn from a good school friend and was gutted when I heard that it had burned down before I could make a visit! So I've watched from afar the reconstruction with keen interest! seeing that... More
