Arriving in the night by snowshoes with only a head torch to shine the way, the welcoming lights of the Cuvaloup de Crans restaurant put an even bigger smile on your face. Delicious fresh beer on tap, yummy local wines from the owner, happy service, fantastic fondue and not to forget, the arboise beef with yummy mushroom sauce. I can't wait to go back during ski season!

If you have three hours to spend for lunch then please ignore this review. This is the worst run restaurant I've ever been to in my life. We waited 20 mins to be seated, a further 20 minutes to order, then waited 20 mins for our drinks to arrive. In the mean time we were provided a tray from the "waitress" who requested we clear the table from the last customers. Then I queued for 25 mins to pay the bill during which time the owner served their friends ahead of other queueing customers. The food was decent but I would not return here ever again.

Had a lovely lunch here while walking in the Jura. Traditional mountain food, friendly service. Lovely wood burning stove and drying hooks, very welcome after a wet morning's walking.

Beautiful location, but very unfriendly and unprofessional service. Would not go again and would not recommend. This is a shame as the resto could be top if managed and staffed with professionals.

Chalet-restaurant Couvaloup de Crans:

If you are looking for a "restaurant d'alpage" while around St Cergue, La Givrinne, La Dole, les Dappes (Les Rousses) this is a friendly place. Not to be confused with the absolutely dreadful restaurant by the road in les Dappes.

To reach the Couvaloup de Crans restaurant, either walk up the hill from les Dappes, or take the tarmac/gravel road below La Givrinne.

Reserve a table if you want to be served well. Service can be iffy when crowded especially in the ski season as it is located on the pistes.

Otherwise the staff is very friendly and we were pleasantly surprised this weekend to be served an excellent "fondue aux bolets" and great quality swiss meat served with a hot plate on which you complete your cooking at your taste.

Call ahead as it can be closed in winter days when the ski resort is closed. And in mid season.
