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

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

Almost hidden behind the main square there is this great restaurant :). When we arrived the smell of burning wood was coming out of there. The food was just plain amazing. The salad was perfectly balanced. And the cheese fundu was the best I have every had. Combine that with very friendly staff and you got a place you can't... More

The dishes were tasty, big enough and reasonable prices as for this area. I can recommend the meat on grill (you get small grill in the table and fresh meat and you... More

When you enter la Galeta you right away feel welcomed. The owner makes sure evrything is fine at every moment of your meal. The cooking of meat on the fire is a nice option or you can choose from a variety of local dishes. We will be back for sure.

Went here on recommend from someone I bumped into. Booked a table and when we walked in it was buzzing. Food and service so very good. Just over 200e for a family of five with drinks, so not too bad.
