Stopped for late lunch. Fantastic owner who found us a table. Food did not disappoint best lunch so far in grand massif. Leave room for deserts.

Lovely restaurant with a delicious menu. Essential to book in advance but a lovely run down so no hardship in doing so. Seating inside and out but later in day can be in the shade. Ideal for drinks too.

We ate here with friends who have a season pass for Samoens and have chosen this as their favourite restaurant in the area. We can see why! The food was excellent and the service was friendly. It was a wonderful place to warm up and re-charge during 3 excellent days of skiing in the resort! Going for lunch was not... More

We stopped here for an early lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. We didn't make a booking and were lucky to get seated, as those arriving 15 minutes behind us without reservations were turned away. The food is excellent and very good value, with classic hearty options from Savoie. I had the planche du chamois....delicious cured meats, potatoes, salad and a... More

Party of 6 , booked, as this is a must, as it only holds 50 covers max, and a number of those happy skiers who turned up on speck were politely turned away. This is due to its excellence and popularity. Great ambience and the food was very good. Menu was varied and the quality didn't disappoint. The omelette was... More

Had a great lunch here whilst out on the slopes. A fairly small restaurant but with very attentive staff. Food was good, quick service and reasonably priced. The log fire was burning and it had one of the cleanest loos I have seen in the mountains! Looks like it would get busy in peak holiday periods so best book in... More

We discovered this delightful restaurant two years ago and returned again in December to find it just as good. Really excellent and innovative food - so much better than the average "something" and chips in the usual mountain restaurants. Lovely atmosphere, with attentive and friendly staff and a cosy fire. Clean loos on the same floor as the dining room,... More

Out of the way but very popular - that says enough doesn't it. At the bottom of the dahu lift on the slopes above Samoëns.- If sunny the terrace is a delight. Inside it can get very busy but they will reserve a table if you book in advance. Mary the local charcuterie plate with baked cheese. It is a... More

arrived for a late lunch and were met with very attentive service, lovely meal, saved a disaster having waited at l'aero for nearly an hour without any service. I have never been disappointed here, the best vin Chaud, perfect soup when snacking and perfect steaks and omelettes.
