First off - the price - a couple of your previous reviewers mentioned that the restaurant is expensive - well it is compared to a lot of places, but in Courchevel there is a premium for everything and La Soucoupe is actually pretty reasonable for the area.

I have been maybe a dozen times over the past 5 years and it has never failed to impress. The menu is simple and hearty - starters include things like Iberian ham (the owner is Spanish) Oysters, smoked salmon. Most of the entrees are flame grilled in front of you on huge traditional wood burning stoves which add huge amounts of atmosphere, warmth and delicious smells!

The room has the most amazing views across the valley to the altiport and the both of the outside terraces have views to die for, but I always choose to dine inside because the rooms ( one upstairs which is more intimate) are so full of character.

Wine list is reasonably comprehensive and average value for the mountains - as is commonplace they have many nice wines from Bordeaux that aren't from the best vintages and are almost universally too young. There is some value to be found for the persistent drinker though!

I am sorry to be the "bringer" of bad tidings but we had what can only be descibed as a disastrous late lunch. It took an hour and a half to get our main courses (we did not have starters) and then another 15 minutes for the vegetables to arrive, by which time the meat was cold. There was a table next to us who had the same problem, as did others. We finally were able to leave 2 and a half hours later and nearly missed our connection to Meribel.

When we complained to the owner, (who incidentally was more interested in handsome ski instructors than the problems) she merely offered us the wine. She never came anywhere near our tables to apologise, leaving this to the poor waiters, whose fault it was not. Frankly the place was appallingly badly managed and we will never go there again.

If you want real value for money, good food and excellent service I recommend La Ferme Choumette in St. Martin de Belleville. At least the owner cared!

Couldn't agree more. We went on a very quiet day early in season which may have helped with the service but staff were fine and attentive and the portions of food substantial. The views were great, the decor was upmarket alpine chic and all in all, despite the price, with tip 80 Euros for two with one drink each but including the vastly overpriced mineral water 7.50 Euros. So if I had to say anything negative, I'd say miss out on the mineral water an have two beers instead! Well worth the experience and you can economise elsewhere...

Four of us had 2 starters, 4 mains & 2 puddings, 2 drinks each - the bill came 230 euros. The food was well cooked and plentyful. Views from the resturant were excellent. A really nice cosy feel to it. Worth a visit - but take lots of cash!
