“Authentic France!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Gorgeous escargots, delicious beef, and that french je ne sais quoi. Je reviens.

The french owner has managed to create a little piece of the best of France in Nouvelle Zealand. The multi-cultural crowd added to the experience.

“Charming French restaurant”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Les Alpes is one of the great survivors in a tourist town full of restaurants that come and go. It offers warmth (especially in winter) with a huge open fire, great traditional French food including fondue and raclette as well as local venison, lamb and beef. We had a party there several months ago and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or attentive. We visited again recently and found the menu has changed, along with the chef and is probably more innovative than previously. It is highly recommended for breakfast with delicious pastries made on the premises. There is an extensive wine list including local wines.Highly recommended.

“Exquisite food and superb surroundings and service”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We had an excellent experience dining at Les Alpes. The staff were more than friendly, they made sure we had everything we could possibly want and more. They were able to answer all of our questions and were happy to do so. The food was bliss, delicious, well presented and just right. We would definitely dine there again, with their mix of a fantastic atmosphere, service second to none and exquisite food it was an all round fantastic experience. Highly recommended.

“Love this restaurant more each year!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We visit Queenstown every year and Les Alpes has always been our number one choice for breakfast, with our favourite being the 'Full French Breakfast'. The only disappointment this year was that they didn't have pastries other than croissants (plain, almond, chocolate) available to choose from where as other years we've had some fabulous brioches as well.

This was the first year we had dinner here, on the Friday night to take advantage of the live Jazz music. We had an amazing Fondue au Fromage with a cold meat platter and followed it up with the best creme brûlée ever and a very rich indulgent chocolate mousse!

The service was wonderful, the atmosphere was fun, the staff actually looked like they were enjoying being at work and the music was great.

Can't wait to return next year!!
