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

This place is a gem! I had a beef filet that was very nice with a side of ratatouille. My husband had rib steak with a side is gratin potatoes that were the best EVER! I truly envied the racleet served at the next table. Go in very hungry if you order that! Service and wine were very nice. Please... More

You need to book in advance for this great place - if you are a carnivore you will love it - and I am! We sat with a view of the wood fired griddle and whilst this meant we were pretty warm it made for an interesting experience seeing the different steaks being cooked to perfection by the skilled chef....

We were in Saint Gervais for a week and ate at L'Affiche, L'Eterle and Le Galeta. All were good in their own ways but Le Galeta was a class apart in terms of food quality. We went on Bastille Day and normally a roaring wood fire in the middle of July would not be welcome. But with the Mercury plunging... More
