This no nonsense place run by a friendly couple serves very good traditional French food in large portions with kind and attentive service. Salad with fresh foie gras and duck, perfectly prepared bass and lovely home made apple pie with ice cream (my friend had duck for main course and chocolate fondant freshly baked after the order), all just for...

Stopped in to the Crystobald looking for a tasty lunch and was not dissapointed. Service was fast and the 3 course menu de joure was delicious and good value. I had cheese tartlette followed by a beautifully cooked fillet of bass with ratatoullie and creme brulee to finish. Classic fare cooked perfectly ! The dining room is fairly small but... More

The interior is worn and tacky. They had never heard of the chardonnay grape and were uncertain of where their wines came from. The food was very average. I had a steak which was much lower quality than even the self service restaurant steaks I had been served at lunch. This is not worth a visit. The pizzeria over the... More

We had a lunch stop here. The restaurant and the waiter appeared quite inviting. We could choose menu of the day or from the a la carte. We picked some tempting dishes from the a la carte. Then a waiting of well over 1 hour started, and no explanation were given. We talked about leaving the restaurant when the food... More

We know a little french and the word 'exceptionnel' comes to mind. Our day in Megeve with friends and family was complete after a lovely evening meal at Le Crystobald. We arrived to a warm welcome: Regina is the perfect hostess, attentive, friendly and helpful with good English. Olivier the chef, is the 'king of the kitchen', producing french cuisine... More

Because it takes so long to get your food even though you may have arrived with a full head of luxuriant hair you will leave...bald! Bad? I agree. This is the third time we have had terrible service in this restaurant. Three times? I hear you say - are you a food-masochist? Fool me once - shame on you! Fool... More

We went to this restaurant after reading reviews on Trip Advisor before we left for Megeve. The hotel we stayed in was only two doors away but we didn't know this until we arrived. If you are staying in the centre of Megeve it will take 10-15 minutes to walk there but it is worth EVERY step! The four of... More

The food here is absolutely amazing. From the appetizers to the dessert, we were thoroughly impressed! The owner spoke with us in English the entire time, and was extremely friendly and helpful. Her husband is the only chef in the restaurant, and he made a special meal for me taking into consideration my allergy to onions. The atmosphere was very... More
