“Great Meal at Le Genepi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

Book in advance if you go in the season, even if it's for 2 people. Lovely place with fantastic food, our table of 4 had Chateau Briand and steaks, they were cooked to perfection and each course was a decent portion size, we were all stuffed afterwards. The set menus are good value although the place isn't cheap, our bill was about £60 per head but we did have with a bottle of nice wine and a couple of drinks not OTT! Lovely and would go back

“An absolute gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

We had the pleasure of eating here last week on our chalet hosts night off. It was difficult to get a booking and I can understand why! We went all out and got the six course set menu for €59- this is a serious amount of good quality food at an unbelievable price...although might be easier to opt an early sitting if having this. Every course was served as perfect example of fine dining, service was great and the host was fabulous! We had lovely kir royales as aperitif and wines were good too and relatively inexpensive. Probably one of the best meals I have had in the Alps ever. Try it- you will not be disappointed.

“Fab little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

Probably the best restaurant in La Rosiere - but book well in advance because this place is popular. Not the cheapest but well worth it. A set menu will cost around 30 euros per person for 3 courses but the food quality is superb. Definitely recommend this place.

“gastroski”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

Recommended by our chalet hosts at the superb Chalet La Roz a group of 16 young and oldish enjoyed a warm welcome at Le Genepi. The weather on the mountain was truly appalling and our spirits needed lifting. La Rosiere does not have a pounding apres ski and restaurants are limited however the meal we had here was among the best I have eaten in Alpine Resorts.

Typically French cuisine we all ordered from the fixed menu which at 29 Euro was excellent value. The local venison was especially succulent. Local Savoie wines were very good. Service was full of bon hommie but was very efficient. Great atmosphere which did indeed cheer us up.

“Excellent place for dinner. Go there.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2011

We went to Le Genepi for dinner on the recommendation of friends. Good choice.
Easy to find, with a great welcome... and there would be no problem if you could only speak English.
Excellent food, and be prepared for generous portions. A good range of wines from the Haut Savoie to try - some demi-bouteilles as well. All in all as good or better than home.
We travel around quite a lot and can definitely give this one a good 4 stars. Why not 5? Because there is only one place where I have eaten the best dinner in my life and this is not it, but it is Very Good and well worth a visit.
