“reasonable priced and welcoming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

have previously visited this place in the ski season but now visited this a couple of times over the summer break. As in winter , the staff are friendly and welcoming and the beer was reasonably priced in comparrison with other establishments in town. The smoothies were super according to my son. The free reliable wifi and availble computers enabled us to catch up with home via pc and ipad at no additional cost. There were also numeous (table) games availble which we will use on our next visit. We certainly were made feel welcome.

“Could be alot better considering”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

Considering it's possition, it's open all year, it's got a good feel about . Staff are overworked and just don't care, beers are hot and they don't bother replacing or offering an alternative, forget food items on breakfast menu and send out frozen sausages and hashbrowns as replacements. Portion sizes are all over the place and everything seems like a hassle , I hope the owners do something about this cause bad word is getting around!

“Hidden Gem in Meribel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

After reading the reviews we thought we'd give Evolution a bash on the chalet hosts night off. Got there early with my wife, son (15) and daughter (3) ... made welcome by the English staff even though we were early and the tables hadn't been set.

This isn't Michelin star food but it's a cosy place, decent food at a sensible price. Ellie was very helpful and patient when our 3 year old wanted to order her own food (carbonara and chips !), I had burger which was pretty good. Ellie convinced us to have the house wine, saved spending 50 Euros on a Pouilly Fume ... so the final bill was very sensible indeed. Most other diners were English, we were long gone by about 8pm so don't know how busy it gets later.

We'd never have found this place without trip advisor, so thanks fo that and will definitely be returning on our next trip. Oh one thing, toilet and washroom facilities in need of an upgrade ! - based on my wife's expression when emerging with our daughter !

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012 via mobile

fab restaurant bar - can recommend the Thai salad, house noodles with chicken and chefs special - duck with roast beetroot and mash with caramelised red onions. They do burgers and pastas, too, but we didn't try. Manageress went out of her way to find space for us,  when we arrived and all tables were reserved, even offering complementary beers for the inconvenience. She ran the bar / restaurant very efficiently and had everything under control, with only 3 staff. The toilets were also clean and tidy. Free wifi. Nice atmosphere. Beers €6.50, mains c. €14
