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

... and fortunately not "Le Pire". We had dinner last week at La Bouitte and it has been fantastic from beginning to end. We took the discovery menu with 5 surprises. We were asked to choose between 3, 4, 5 or 8 surprises and also asked what we did not like and it will then apply to the whole table.... More

Very good place, both for lunch and dinner. Fast and professional service with very good food. Of course it is expensive but its a two star place:)

After a recommendation from friends we attended this restaurant as a special treat. While the food was good, I have to say that the service was shocking. Surely a Michelin Star should be for the overall experience, not just the food. When we arrived, we were handed coat hangers and almost asked to hang up our own coats. We were... More

We came on the 31st of Dec together with our nephews and our Family and had such a wonderful and memorable experience that I can consider it one of the top 5 meal experiences we have had. The setting, the level of detail of attention and the quality of the food well deserves its 2 stars. Wine pairing was good... More

We stayed for 5 nights and ate 4 dinners recently on a walking trip to the Alps. Clearly not a cheap holiday, but memorable and wholly enjoyable. Friendly service, and truly memorable food. Sensitive to ingredients - we ate the lake fish twice and will not forget it easily. Definitely worth a visit. The wine list needs attention if they... More

Do not go here! 3700 euros for 12 people for what was the most dismal meal. A totally uninspired menu coupled with a sommelier that produced inconceivably bland wines. One guest took a taxi home after the first course. Believe it or not their shuttle service even crashed the car on the way to the restaurant. DO NOT MAKE THE... More

For perched mid way up the French alps, in the tiny village of St Marcel, right above St Martin, and a few Kms before Les Ménuires, is a true culinary find! Well not exactly a find, as the Michelin guide has already granted them two stars! Elegant yet ski wear (or jeans) friendly informal decor, very attentive but not obsequious... More
