Light, fresh and slightly quirky decor if very refreshing change from the usual Alpine kitsch. We ordered steak and a burger, an unusual choice for my other half, but he declared it one of the best he'd tasted. They were both served with home-made chips, a rare occurence anywhere these days, and a decent salad. Desserts were huge. We both chose the salted caramel pannacotta, it was delicious. Can't wait to visit again.

La Cagette is definitely different from the other restaurants in Monetier, with a distinctly modern vibe in it's decor and menu. Do visit the toilets even if you don't need to, they are worth a look.

We enjoyed the garlic tapenade for the bread as starter, thought it was a nice touch. My husband had the lamb, which he very much enjoyed. I had the steak tartare, which was of a high quality, although I found the homemade chips a little disappointing, not crisp and a bit overcooked.
I was really looking forward to the chocolate fondant dessert which takes 10 mins to cook but was a bit disapointed as it was dry and slightly overcooked, rather than moist. I'm sure if I had said something they would have replaced it or taken it off the bill, but it wasn't that bad, just not as good as expected.
La Cagette is definitely worth a visit if you fancy a change from traditional cooking.

La Cagette or "The Crate" is a great addition to the Serre Chevalier restaurant scene. So many restaurants in the mountains serve traditional carb busting food which most alpinists crave.

La Cagette works against this, and this restaurant would not be out of place in any of the chic areas of many cities.

The interior has been well thought through, every detail of the restaurant finessed and chosen with great taste.

Is this a restaurant or a home deco shop I wondered?!

The food does not disappoint, classic French bistrot fare served up and presented in a modern way.

I look forward to the sofa being installed, the Pizza oven being delivered, and hope that the breakfast brunch menu appears soon!

I wish the young couple running this restaurant all the best of luck and success.

Chapeau!
