Ate here on Valentine's day, 2013. Exclusive and hip - the restaurant only has 5 tables with an open kitchen, where you are invited to walk in at will and see how the chef prepares your food. Chefs are extremely welcoming and friendly, which adds greatly to the gastronomic experience. Both Maitre'D and head chef was hospitable and international (both had worked extensively in Asia). The staff to guest ratio was almost 1-to-1, which offered a very high level of attention. The restaurant offers 2 menus - a full 20 course tasting menu (400 Euro) or a "lighter" menu (300 Euro). We opted for the lighter menu, and were completely full by the 6th course (even before reaching our main course). If you order the full tasting menu, be sure you stay hungry the whole day leading up to your meal. The food is amazing (except for the actual main course which was good but short of amazing). Wine list is extensive, including some incredible Cheval Blanc vintages (pricey).
1947 is located inside the Cheval Blanc hotel, which is very chic, and worth a visit.
If you only have 1 meal in Courchevel, then this is the place to go.
Only downside? Our sommelier managed to spill our wine onto the table (and some onto my wife) while pouring. I'm sure it was an isolated incident and he offered us free desert wine as a result.
If you are staying elsewhere, you can ask Cheval Blanc to send their shuttle to pick you up (and send you home afterwards). Very convenient!
