The Kitsch Inn offers great value, delicious traditional French and British farmhouse cooking. Breakfast, Lunch, afternoon snacks and Dinner(reservation only for dinners), plenty of vegetarian options and a great bar with wide range of beers and live music. Situated at the bottom of the ski slope in Les Houches, behind the Bellevue Cable car, this is the first true ski-to-the-door, dance-in-your-ski-boots apres-ski bar in the valley of Chamonix! Welcomes all from small groups up to 100 people, all generations and families with children.

This restaurant offers a quirky alternative in Les Houches. The food is of a good standard, much of it locally sourced. I would recommend the burger with emmental cheese - really tasty. Open for breakfast until noon, lunch and dinner. Located right beside the Bellevue cable car. Good range of drinks, hot and cold. Even a draught English beer! Outdoor... More

It's hard to generalise but on this trip, I've had four meals of note; one was average (French restaurant) and the other three were good and all run by poms. Who knew!?

The place might look like an average pub but its not. The food is very good but I guess far from being tradional. If you want somthing typical Savoyard go elsewhere. Best option if you are staying in Les Houches and worth a trip from Chamonix.

We have eaten here several times and the food has been great every time. The kids menu is brilliant. I love that nearly everything is homemade.
