What an achievement !

6 of our family for a Birthday, as we were in Meribel we could not miss La Bouitte that we know only in winter and skiing.

Had a wonderful meal here in July, worth every penny (and it's not cheap). And then the patron drove us home afterwards, which I don't think happens at many 3 starred restaurants.

Having just received their third well deserved Michelin star Rene and Maxime Meuilleur produce the most amazing food, each dish seems to be better than the previous one. Their tasting menu is a joy to experience. i cannot complement this restaurant enough. Also they have a super selection of local wines

This was our second visit to La Bouitte and it was my birthday. The first time (about 3 years ago) they had just received their second star and this time they had just received their 3rd. The pickup from our chalet was a little late, but it's never easy and the driver was extremely courteous. We chose the 7 Surprises... More

I blame myself for having discovered this gem only recently. My parent took me to Les Ménuires (actually to Saint Martin de Belleville) since the late 1970s. and since then I became a regular fan of the Belleville valley, but I never tried out La Bouitte : this shall remain a regretful remorse for the rest of my taste buds’...

Four of our six were all I'll after the meal. The menu was uninspiring and all a grave disappointment

We ate here when it had one, then two stars, so looked forward to taking four friends to experience the three stars. The meal was not only a disappointment because of uninspiring dishes, but four of our six were all ill over the next twelve hours. We had the 145 euro surprise menu, which started with oysters....not a choice which... More

It depends on your preferences. If you are persuaded by bustling, over-attentive service which takes itself too seriously, then this may be the place for you. I may not like the staff to be my best friend, but I do like them to have a bit of personality. Along with the scrubbed table cloths, all individuality is knocked out of... More

We were so excited to be going to a 3 michelin star establishment but SO disappointed. One dimensional cooking at its pretentious worst. Bland food. Modest ingredients cooked in an uninspiring way. The main course was the worst. Wagyu beef full of fat and gristle and a rock hard turnip. When offered a replacement a bowl of potato soup with... More
