This is my pictorial guide to Les Gets restaurants on the slopes, in the village and the surrounding areas. All personally tried and tasted and regularly updated! If you know any I need to try and add to my list, please leave me a message in the comments below!
Le Bacchus by Crychar
Le Bacchus – This chic and gourmet restaurant is at L’Hotel Crychar. Well situated at the foot of the Chavannes piste, very close to town. Access also via the road to La Turche. Le Bacchus restaurant is open in summer and winter with an indoor and outdoor terrace as well as a restaurant. The indoor terrace and bar area has wonderful comfy leather Chesterfield sofas and a great relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for lunch and après ski time.
I had a fabulous burger for lunch and they offer a great selection of salads, meat and fish dishes. There is a childrens menu too. In the evenings in the bar/indoor terrace, you can enjoy a fabulous selection of sharing platters. They have a very good and extensive wine list.
Ferme de Montagne, La Turche
Oh my goodness who knew about The Ferme de Montagne in Les Gets? This incredible gastronomic wonderland tucked away in La Turche in the beautiful ski resort of Les Gets. Nevermind that this is some of the most amazingly creative food I’ve eaten in Les Gets – it’s probably some of the most innovative food I’ve eaten anywhere. Valentine Costuna and Jesse Smith, an incredible team of 2 chefs are creating something truly wonderful at Ferme de Montagne, a superb catered chalet in Les Gets…

Nestled in amongst all that melted cheese in the wonderful resort of Les Gets it is a refreshing change to find the ‘healthy option’. Les Gets is not short of great restaurants to sample the Savoyard specialities and great gourmet cuisine, but one thing it did lack, in my opinion, was something completely different…Enter Wild Beets Kitchen…
In the centre of the town, just off the main road, you’ll find Wild Beets Kitchen – cafe restaurant. Inside has a great and friendly ambience with the choice of tables or sofas. The terrace facing the slopes offers outdoor dining too and space to park your bike or skis!
25 rue des Pistes
74260 Les Gets
Tel: 04 50 04 02 37
Open for lunch and dinner
A great new restaurant opened this winter in Les Gets. Le RDV – Le Rendez-Vous – Les Gets – it’s where the Peau de Vache was. The interior is modern, light and fun. They serve great food, very good wines and offer a warm welcome. Apero time is good too with a good plate of cheeses and meats. A good diverse menu, something for everyone including the Tartiflette revisited!
We are lucky in Les Gets to have such a great selection of restaurants to choose from, both on the slopes and in town and the latest on the scene Les Dur à Cuire restaurant in the centre of town is helping Les Gets live up to the reputation of having some of the best restaurants in a ski resort – Well in my opinion!
Here are a few pics – but read my full review of Les Durs à Cuire here

46 Route du Chene, Les Gets – Tel: 04 50 38 24 20
This delightful restaurant is a must-visit for that special lunch or dinner whilst visiting Les Gets. Open summer and winter, 7 days a week, L’Outa offers a great choice of freshly cooked dishes with an emphasis on fish and seafood and some fine wines! The ‘frites maison’ are absolutely delicious! Eating in the quiet secluded garden at the back has a wonderful ambience and the interior has a modern yet contemporary Savoyard feel.

Plat du Jour – Gourmet Burger
This is a wonderful restaurant in a beautiful old traditional building and is a working fromagerie. If you are looking for the truly authentic Savoyard experience – then look no further. La Fruitiere is a 10 to 12 minute walk from the main town to Les Perrieres at the beginning of the village.
A warm welcome awaits you with a roaring log fire. Take an aperitif by the fire at the communal table before going into the ancient cave dining room.
Their specialities include the Raclette, various Fondues and Vacherin including Savoyard meat dishes with Diots. They use local produce and cheese made in their own Fromagerie. There is a boutique to buy local cheeses and visits around the fromagerie are arranged weekly in the seasons.

L’As des Neiges et Le Comptoir – +33 450 80 62 53
L’As des Neiges restaurant is located in town on the Rue du Centre on the corner where the Bel Alps Hotel used to be. They have 2 restaurants – L’As des Neiges is the restaurant Gourmand, next door and linked is Le Comptoir a more casual dining and takeaway restaurant with a bar serving artisan bieres. Le Comptoir serves a menu travail of 3 courses for €14:50. So these 2 restaurants have something to suit all palates.

Alpine Tavern 04 50 79 76 09
In the square in Les Gets, by the memorial with a great outdoor bar and terrace area, a perfect place for that apres ski apero. A refreshing change to find a few different dishes on the menu nestling alongside our Savoyard favourites. Slow-cooked pork cheek, tartare de saumon, gourmet burgers, gratin de crozets a la savoyarde to name a few. Lovely selection of cheeses and homemade desserts, and of course a plat du jour each weekday.
04 50 79 78 50
This is a great little restaurant with good and friendly service and a wonderful atmosphere and great modern yet retaining the Savoyard style decor inside. They have a large outdoor terrace for those balmy winter days. Offering a varied menu, including a menu and plat du jour daily and the usual Savoyard specialities but sometimes with a modern twist. Booking is advisable in high season and at weekends. Update: Summer 2015 They have a new head chef in their kitchens and it’s great to see some innovative dishes, although reassuring to enjoy the same good service. New winter 2016 Les Copeaux has had a refurbishment, the new restaurant is now larger, so more of us can enjoy the delicious food! the new decor is wonderful, warm and offers a great ambience.
Les Copeaux, Les Gets
Lunch at Les Copeaux April 2016
Salade Chevre Chaud – goats cheese 4 ways. QG Salad and the gourmet burger
160 Rue du Vieux Village – 04 50 79 75 57
This is one of our favourites! A young couple who work so hard and produce fabulous food and offer a great service in typically Savoyard surroundings. Really great menu, good variety, including a la carte and full menu all freshly cooked with some great presentation and de-constructed dishes. Fab desserts and a cafe gourmand to die for! This restaurant is popular with the locals and is open all year round. See a full review of La R’mize
La R’mize, Les Gets
La Pela – 04 50 79 85 02
This restaurant is an old Savoyard farm in the centre of the village with a wonderful warm atmosphere. The Café Gourmand is fabulous! They have a large selection of different types of Pela this is another name for tartiflette one of the most popular Savoyard dishes. This restaurant changed hands in 2013 and if anything the quality of the food and service got even better. Open and lunchtime and evenings in the winter and summer seasons – closed on Mondays.

Salads at La Pela, Les Gets
Bellevue and L’Apres Ski Bar – bottom of the slopes by ESF ski school – 04 50 75 80 95
This is a well established and great place to eat, drink and stay in Les Gets and is open summer and winter. It is in a fabulous position right at the bottom of the slopes and in the centre of town! The Apres ski bar is a fun and lively place to be at apero time, you will often find live music and in summer it’s a great place to watch the world go by relaxing on deck chairs. The restaurant’s contemporary interior with a modern Savoyard style is warm and cosy in winter and the large modern terrace is sheltered and heated when necessary. The Bellevue offers a great daily plat du jour and a menu. Having eaten there often, I have always enjoyed a great meal and good service. In high season this is a popular place so booking is advisable.
Restaurant in Labrador Hotel – Le Table de St. Laurent – 04 50 75 80 00
(open only in the evenings – 7.30 pm to 9.15 pm)
Someone is after a Michelin Star!! Not what you would normally expect in a ski resort, but really worth spoiling yourself with a dinner to remember.
Le Brasserie du Centre – 04 50 79 87 08
New for 2020 Very centrally located restaurant at the foot of the pistes – formerly La Taniere. The decor has been updated and the interior looks good and still retains the cosy atmosphere. The menu is similar to that of La Taniere offering a range of Savoyard specialities and a great selection of pizzas. Good to see the addition of salads and poke bowl style food. The Croutes are amazing! Will update with what I eat on my next visit!
On the Slopes…
Le QG 04 50 79 86 65 – on the piste on the way down to ESF school, piste marker 17 on Gentiane and close to the Téléski de le Boule de Gomme. This restaurant is also accessible by car, take the route de Chavannes towards the golf course and take the right turn marked Gibannaz and you’ll find it at the end of the road. There is parking on the route du Gibannaz.
This is a great place for lunch on the slopes with a wonderful outdoor terrace for dining, apero and a relaxing area with deck chairs. The style is a modern chalet feel using wood and slate. The menu is varied and food well presented. There is a good mix of Savoyard specialities and gourmet dishes. The plat du jour always looks good. I find the service good and friendly. The menu has similarities to it’s sister restaurant in town Les Copeaux. Le QG is a great apero bar too for that après ski at the end of the day and only one small piste to get home!
Le Belvedere on Mont Chery – 04 50 83 31 34
Fantastically located restaurant just as you step out of the Tele-Cabine on Mont Chery at the mid-station, so this is easily accessible for walker and skiers. Half is a self-service area for those in a hurry to get back on the piste but for those wishing to linger over a good lunch on the sun-baked terrace whilst being rewarded with the most amazing views the Portes du Soleil has to offer – then this is the place for you! The menu offers the usual Savoyard suspects but served up with a difference along with a good plat du jour and oh my the grand café gourmand is a seriously good must try!
Le Grand Cry, Les Chavannes – mid station
In a great location at the mid-station for skiers, ski tourers, walkers and non-skiers as is easily accessible by tele-cabine or car, this restaurant has a great outdoor terrace facing the midday sun. Inside the decor is really fun and creatively designed. The menu is varied with a few surprises and from what I have seen and tasted so far really good! There are the traditional Savoyard favourites nestled amongst a souris d’agneau and a smoked pork filet mignon, escargots with a creamy risotto – clearly an inventive chef offering great and interesting flavours. There is a menu offering aperos gourmand and to finish some delicious sounding desserts and my old favourite the café gourmand which didn’t disappoint as it was all home made with a small piece hot apple tarte tatin on.
La Croix Blanche – Les Chavannes mid station (don’t take bookings)
This has got to be the best location on the mountain for skiers and non-skiers. On a sunny day the terrace is the place to eat lunch. Non-skiers can get here using the Chavannes tele-cabine or by driving. Parking isn’t always easy in the winter. Their salads are the BEST! the menu is varied, caters for children, including a great bbq selection, good service, always a busy restaurant and although you can’t book, this restaurant has a large capacity and turn around is quite quick. Normally there is a good value plat du jour to enjoy too!
La Croix Blanche has a newly renovated interior for the winter season of 2016 and looks great. More interior seating and a great place with a lovely welcoming fire for guests staying to relax. As always the food is very good!
Le Vaffieu, Pleney, Morzine – 04 50 79 09 43
A real favourite of mine for lunch on the slopes, this very popular restaurant really takes Savoyard to a new level. Advisable to book. Access on skis via telesiege Folliets du golf, or walk from the Chavannes mid-station, a very pleasant walk and then a deserved lunch! Advisable to book in high season. Has great outdoor dining and a permanent marquee attached to a gorgeous Savoyard Hameau style building. Wonderful cafe gourmand! Open during the winter and summer season. See full review here
La Paika, La Turche – 04 50 75 80 33
What a great place this is! A real find nestled halfway down the Varros piste (blue), daily barbequed specialities, the best dessert table I’ve seen, a stunning terrace with outstanding views. Advisable to book for lunch in high season
Chez Nannon – Nyon area, Morzine 04 50 79 21 15
This is a little gem and I mean small! Inside seats only about 14 so if you want to try their amazing signature dish, be sure to book your lunch. However if the sun is shining they have a great sunny terrace nestled into the mountain! Access on skis only best from the Troncs Express chair lift.
The restaurant on top of the world – well top of Les Gets! with an unbeatable view. This jewel in the crown is nestled up high on Mont Chery and is run by an English family who has worked tirelessly to make this a great experience. The lobster tartiflette signature dish has to be experienced at least once! They open a couple of evenings a week too – travel by piste basher up for a great dinner amongst the stars. Don’t miss the pig roast Sunday lunch. Open during the winter ski season only. Monday lunchtimes the fabulous Squid Lips band play throughout the day. Really good idea to book – 06 79 42 58 86 Read my full review of La Grande Ourse here.
And on the North side of Mont Chery…
La Chanterelle – 04 50 04 08 19
All pistes on the North side of Mont Chery will lead you to this wonderful mountain restaurant, close to the chair lift Chery Nord. It is also accessible by car through the village of Cote D’Abroz via the Col de L’Encrenaz. There are some great hikes in this area too! A large sunny terrace right on the piste means lunch can be enjoyed whilst soaking up the sun and taking in the fabulous mountain views! The delightful smells from the outdoor wood-fired oven greet you on arrival! and the food that is produced on this wood-burning oven is great! The restaurant has huge windows offering beautiful views and a great warm ambience inside with comfortable sofas and roaring fires to relax for a while between hiking or skiing. La Chanterelle is offering breakfasts and brunch, lunches and is open in the evenings. Since writing this post I believe La Chanterelle has a new owner and offers accommodation.
Restaurant du Lac 04 50 79 84 74
Great location summer and winter, at the edge of the lake. Easy access for skiers too. I had a great risotto and fish dish, the menu includes Savoyard specialities. Open all day summer and winter but not in the evenings. Outdoor and indoor dining.
And Further Afield…
When I set off on a summer hike in the Lac Mines D’or area of Morzine, I did give some thought to where we might find lunch, however, I had no idea that we would stumble upon the family-run Auberge de Freterolles or Chalet de Freterolles – as it is marked on the map. What a great find, nestled high up above the Lac Mines D’or – about a 20 minute uphill beautiful walk with 360-degree breathtaking views. This Auberge is on the hiking route to the Col de Coux or in the direction of Samoens the Col de la Golése. Read the rest of my post about this fabulous family run Auberge here
The Alba Bar and Kitchen
2070 Route des Grandes Alps, 74430 Saint-Jean-d’Aulps TEL 07 71 71 13 65
Alan White has been a chef to follow around Les Gets for the last few years and has really championed bringing fine dining and some new ideas to Les Gets and the area. They have been open inter-season too running cooking courses and serving good modern and creative food, very well presented. Now settled in St. Jean d’Aulps the food is just as good. Service is warm and friendly. Sunday lunch is great and I love the interior decor. There is a terrace for outdoor dining too.
