Megeve Apres-Ski, Bars & Restaurants

Megeve prides itself on the quality of the food available in its 44 off-mountain restaurants. All the best guide books from Michelin to Gault Millau feature restaurants in Megeve and few French ski resorts are better equipped to deal with such demanding palates.

Megeve Apres-Ski

Apres-ski in Megeve is relatively sophisticated and in keeping with the traditional French flavour of the resort and its well-heeled clientele, Megeve is not a place for rowdy après ski. For evening entertainment, there is a cinema, bars, restaurants, discos, a casino and a very popular jazz club with frequent live performances.

You can spend hours window-shopping in the many boutiques or sipping cafe-au-lait in the chic cafes before wandering around the historic buildings in the centre of town, then take a sleigh-ride home in one of the many caleches (horse drawn carriages). 

There are plenty of other activities in Megeve but the chances are – if you are doing it right – that you will want to spend some time in the comfort of your (very agreeable) accommodation after you leave the slopes, before heading out to explore the village or to enjoy a high-quality meal. 

Megeve Restaurants

From the exclusive La Ferme de Mon Pere, boasting three Michelin stars, to the more reasonable, and filling, Savoyard restaurants in the town centre, there is a huge variety. The choice of cuisine available includes French, Italian and the Asian restaurant Bouddha Moor.

Flocons de Sel 
Another boasting Michelin stars. Chef Emmanuel Renaut beavers away in the 4-star spa hotel of the same name creating dishes to not only revive hungry stomachs but to also wow bored palates. Renault also offers cookery classes, for those who want to recreate his dishes at home. Tel: +33 4 50 21 49 99. Web:

La Cintra 
This restaurant has served the greats of society since it was established in back in 1937. One of the few places you can get oysters and a glass of white wine without having to take off your ski boots, but for a place of this quality it’s best to go home, change and have a real go at the menu. Tel +33 4 50 21 02 60. Web:

Domaine de La Sasse
Not strictly in Megeve, but well worth the trip and trek if you like steak. Nestled below Mont Joly, the chef prepares bison sourced directly from his own herd. It is an exclusive opportunity in that there is limited space in his restaurant, and limited heads of cattle. The chef is very inventive with his ingredients and booking is essential. Open for lunch and does not take credit cards. Tel: + 33 6 09 90 30 29. Web:

Le Puck 
The food on offer here is essentially Flocons de Sel lite. Run by the same chef, Le Puck is more basic and hearty, and with a more artisan price tag. The puddings are worth the trip alone and as there is a huge wine list available by the glass it is a solid choice. Tel: +33 450 21 06 61

Jacques Megean 
If you like truffles, and if you can afford them, Jacques Megean is the place to head for. The chef here couples the black gold with pretty much everything and although the decor is not much to look at, the food more than makes up for it. Tel: +33 4 50 21 26 82

Chalet de Mont d’Arbois 

Not the most expensive in town, but close. Like many of the top restaurants in Megeve, this hits the high notes, but you pay for it. Well worth it for that blow out meal of the week. The Auberge and the Club are a lot cheaper and good value. Tel: +33 4 50 21 25 03. Web:

Brasserie Centrale 
If Megeve seems like a place that seems for the rich, it is not entirely true. The Brasserie Centrale on the Rue Charle Feige offers superb value for money, providing hearty Savoyard fare. Tel: +33 4 50 21 22 44
