First of all, the ambience is super, looks like legit Savoyard decor to me although I am no expert. The open fire grill is cool as well, and the steaks cooked upon it were very good quality. Service was a little slow so a star lost for that, but otherwise a very enjoyable meal indeed.

Our annual visit to Le Galeta whilst skiing is one of the highlights, this is where anyone wanting to know how to offer top notch customer service should go. The owners imprint on this business is fantastic, they are completely involved and their staff have learnt well from them. You are welcomed like old friends. Even though we had an... More

A fantastic experience both in food and service ... Sylvie cannot do enough ...she is the perfect hostess .. The steaks are to die for and the "coup de cœur" (wine recommendation that changes every month) has been faultless for the last five years .. You must go!!!!

Whenever we come to St Gervais we go to Le Galeta. It is very quaint inside, very Savoyard decor, huge grill that the chef cooks on in the restaurant (and the tables near the grill do get quite warm!). The food and wines are all very good indeed. Not the cheapest place but a great experience especially at the end... More

We had a very nice moment in this lovely restaurant. The food was great and the staff is very pleasant. Warm atmosphere with friendly owners who seem to really care about their guests. Go there and you won't be disappointed! :-) We recommend the authentic meat grilled in front of you in the brazier. Special attention for the waitress Marie-Line... More

Best place to eat in St Gervais. Really worth checking this place out, even if you're not staying in the village. The atmosphere, decor, staff and food tick all the boxes after a long days ski. I very rarely have steak, probably once a year when I'm at Le Galeta; as it's just too good to turn down! That said... More

This is one of our regular haunts when we're in town and we are always made most welcome. The food here is delcious particularly anything cooked on the open fire, the griller loin of lamb is some of the best I've had, and service is always very efficient and friendly. We've brought many friends here are all have been impressed... More

A must visit on my at least twice annual trips to Saint Gervais. Steaks can't be beaten anywhere. Very friendly and efficient service who can't do enough for you. Great ambience. Brilliant chocolate mousse too.

We actually called for an early dinner but service did not start until 7 so we booked for lunch the next day. It was very quiet (Saturday lunch) but we really did have a lovely meal. We had a set menu with goat's cheese starter and then reblouchon fondue and a three meat charcoal grill followed by an outstanding creamy... More
