“Buzzy with surprisingly good food”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is a well known joint that attracts many and were people like to be seen. I have to admit that, while I expected the food to be run of the mill, it was really rather good. Prices pretty high with some laughably expensive bottles on the wine list!

“Most fun place on the mountain...”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Arguable the most fun place on the mountain. The crowd is a bit tacky and show off though... However if you are one of those, order couple of champagnes and have a few dancers on the table kind of people, you will definitely feel home. Enjoy...

“Over hipped, avoid!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This is my first review here and only cos i was so dissapointed with this place I needed to warn ppl to avoid it. Service is as described previously poor, food is under cooked and prices ridiculosly high.

If you're aim is to be seen that would be by nouveau rich or over 50 still in their mid life crises man. If you are a man looking to pick up then you might as well use an escort service, result would be similar.

In a nutshell, Courchevel is full of far better restaurants and bars, go explore and avoid this place.

“You feel more welcome at McDonalds”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

I am used to different cultures and levels of service. The French always rank pretty low in terms of service but my experience in La Mangeoire over New Year's took national arrogance to an altogether new level

We arrived for the 10.30pm sitting, we had a table for ten. We were the first to arrive, and while awaiting the rest of the party, I decided to order some hors d'oeuvres and two bottles of Chateauneuf Du Pape for the table. Each bottle was priced at Euros 250. Not the cheapest bottle on the wine list (they start at Euros 100) but far from the most expensive (north of 10k)

The waiter took my order and returned within a few minutes whispering to my ear "Monsieur, the Manager is upset you chose such a cheap wine. It is clear that if you start with such cheap wine, you will not go on to order Euro 3000 bottles... You understand Monsieur I gave you a good table, and next time I would hate to have to give you a bad table at the back"

I don't think I need to write much more here - but you get the gist of it. The arrogance is surprising even by Courchevel standards. A real shame as this place used to be a tonne of fun with good music and crowds dancing on tables. It has become markedly empty recently - and for good reason.
