Open your wallet: this will be memorable on all accounts. One star Michelin. An old chalet, beautifully and tastefully decorated, in the hamlet of Saint-Marcel a stone-throw away from Saint Martin de Belleville. Father and son team up to deliver beautiful and creative cusine inspired by Savoie in all aspects and made with local products, including herbs from the garden... More

La Bouitte has an outstanding concept. It is a family business offering very fine and exquisite meals, made by high-quality products, almost all of them originating from the Savoie region. We made a reservation to eat inside the kitchen itself, so we were expecting to have a very rare dinner, seeing it from the kitchen's side. However, a family cancelled... More

I find it very difficult to review La Bouitte. On the one hand they offer exceptional food - really some of the best you will taste anywhere. On the other hand they offer some of the worst service I think we have ever encountered. This was not our first visit to the restaurant and I have kept telling myself that... More

We went for a family dinner. We took the five suprises and received 10. Great service that exceeded expectation, perfectly matched food in texture and design in a comfortable setting. Refrain from earing too much bread haha we were absolutely stuffed by the end.

This is not about the restaurant’s kitchen but about the entire service and professionalism of the place. In La Bouitte, in my case, this last two have been worse than bad (and I can’t speak about the first) as explained below. I try with this review to prevent others to be penalized with the same disappointment. The facts: i) a... More

What a meal. Fantastic setting with great service and lots of chefs tasters. We had a three course menu that they recommended and also had their wine choice with it. I really could not fault it in the least although my wife did complain that she had too much to eat. This is not a cheap restaurant but if you... More

An experience. Expensive. Intimidating. Didn't really enjoy the food *that* much. A very French style of fancy food.

La Bouitte undoubtably has the wow factor, the restaurant and it's decor, the food presentation is faultless, sommelier helpful ( had 2 fabulous wines, beautifully paired) and everything interesting and delicious. However it did fall a bit short on service- we had a fairly early table and with a full restaurant evidently expected later, the place was crawling with staff... More

We visited the restaurant for a lazy lunch midway through a skiing holiday at the end of March. The restaurant came and picked us up at our chalet in Saint Martin de Belleville and afterwards we walked back. The service was friendly and efficient but the first time we have been greeted by the question 'do you want us to... More
