Mountain Restaurants

Les Menuires Mountain Restaurants

Technically almost every restaurant in Les Menuires is a mountain restaurant because it’s a ski-in, ski-out resort where you’re never far from the piste, but these all have something special about them.

Next to the Bruyeres mid-station lift near the bottom of the 4 Vents piset, L’Antigel serves seriously high quality good food with waiter service, but there are always one of two very reasonably priced main courses on special offer as well as cheaper salads and light dishes. Great atmosphere inside and out, (there is an old stove inside and a south-facing sun terrace) and even a trip to the toilets is interesting because you go through a museum of skiing. Tel: +33 4 79 00 64 44.

Le Ferme de Reberty

Okay, it’s in Reberty 2000 rather than higher up the mountain but it’s just off the blue Boyes piste so you can ski virtually to the door. Great food to suit all budgets, great atmosphere (it becomes an apres-ski hangout later on), good-sized portions, and a sunny terrace, so what’s not to like? Tel +33 4 79 00 77 01.

Le 2800, Pointe de la Masse

Located at the top of La Masse, this mountain restaurant surely has the best views in the whole of the resort. On a clear day you look all the way across the Alps to Mont Blanc. A natural meeting point because even non-skiers can reach it via the fast bubble lift, this restaurant caters both for those wanting a quick chocolate chaud in the morning before tackling one of the long runs down to the resort, and those wanting a proper lunch with fine wine and table-service. (There is also a self-service snack hut if you just want a quick pit-stop.) In sunny weather, booking ahead is recommended for lunch. Tel: +33 6 11 74 58 05

Le Chalet du Cairn 

The Chalet du Cairn is accessible from the Sunny Express chairlift, but you can also use both the Becca and Mont de La Chambre chairs. You still have to descend a red piste, the David Douillet red run and one which carries heavy traffic, to access the restaurant’s large sun terrace which means it is not the perfect lunch spot for groups of mixed ability. Unlike many of the restaurants in the Belleville valley, Le Chalet du Cairn operates table service.  The restaurant also boasts great views across the valley to La Masse. Tel: +33 4 79 00 19 81


L’Alpage serves traditional Savoyard food made from simple but quality ingredients. An extremely convivial atmosphere, due to the rustic, chalet-style decor, L’Alpage also has a sun terrace. It’s good value and accessed via the 4 Ventes red run. Tel: +33 4 79 00 75 16


Located on the green Montagnette piste and within walking distance of the upmarket La Sapiniere/Les Montagnettes chalets and apartments, at lunchtimes this is definitely more of a place to dine, rather than simply eat, with table-service and fine Savoyard cooking backed up by a huge wine list. But it’s also in a sunny spot with a lovely terrace and nice views. Open in the evening as well as lunchtime. Tel: +33 4 79 00 75 58

Le Grande Lac

If there was a border between the Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville ski areas, this mountain restaurant would be on it because it’s located in a sunny spot with good views near the bottom of Granges chairlift, at the crossroads where the Pelozet, Gross Tougne, Teppes and Grand Lac piste all meet. A favourite for Meribel day-trippers who have explored the Belleville valley in the morning and want a big lunch at a Les Menuires price before returning to their more expensive valley.  Tel: +33 4 79 08 25 78

Les Roches Blanches

Situated half way down La Masse at the top of the Masse 1 lift, Les Roches Blanches is basically good for a pit stop for those who have been exploring the dramatic La Masse sector. It is a traditional Savoyard chalet, offering large welcoming plates of pizzas and spaghettis but nothing more. Tel: +33 4 79 00 60 22
