Les Menuires Apres-Ski, Bars & Restaurants

Apres-ski in Les Menuires is not as lively as in some other Three Valley resorts and with good reason too. The resort is popular with families and those on a limited budget but if you look hard enough there’s always somewhere to have a drink and a dance, and plenty of restaurants for those that want a break from self-catering.

Les Menuires Bars and clubs

La Croisette is the liveliest part of town. Le Mousse (Tel: +33 4 79 00 16 16) and above it, Bar le Challenge (Tel: +33 4 79 00 78 52), are two of the more famous bars. Le Mousse can get very busy later at night, while Le Challenge often has live music and stays open until 2am. L’Attelier is another popular late night bar. For a proper nightclub, go to Le New Pop in Immeuble Peclet (tel: +33 4 79 00 67 20).

In the other parts of resort, the piste-side complex in Reberty headed up by the restaurant La Ferme de Reberty, is a good place to stop for sundowners. In Les Bruyeres, Le Chouette (Tel: +33 4 79 00 21 26) is also good for a drink and the creperie next door provides good sustenance afterwards when the bar closes for a breather at 6.30pm before opening later at night. Le Plan B in Bruyeres is a good late night bar, and Leeberty is a proper nightclub for those who don’t want to walk all the way to La Croisette.

Finally, down in Preyerand is the Dutch-run Yeti bar, which is about the most fun bar in town. 

Les Menuires Restaurants

Les Menuires is so  family orientated that nightlife is not top of the list of most people’s priorities, although there are a lot of restaurants that cater for those who want a night away from the stove in their residences and apartments.

La Croisette has a lot of mediocre takeaway outlets, but La Brasserie des Belleville (in the same building as the Hotel Pelvoux) has good quality simple food and a nice atmosphere. It’s telephone number is +33 4 79 00 68 93.  There are also most traditional restaurants such as L’Etoile (Tel: +33 4 79 00 75 58)  and Au Coin du Feu (Tel: +33 4 79 09 97 52) which are worth investigating as a change of scenery if you are staying in one of the many apartment blocks in the centre of resort.

In Reberty, the restaurants in the Hotel Kaya (Tel: +33 4 79 41 42 00), and the Hotel L’Ours Blanc (Tel: +33 4 79 00 61 66), are both good, as you would expect from 4 star hotels. They also have nice terraces for lunch or late afternoon drinks.

Another star in Reberty is La Ferme de Reberty (Tel: +33 4 79 00 77 01), which also is a fine spot for lunch. The fixed price dinner menu is excellent value for the quality of food received. Le Maison de Savoy, near the top of Reberty 1850 so easy to get to from all parts of Grand Reberty, is another good, slopeside restaurant, that is popular at lunchtimes and in the evening (Tel: +33 4 79 00 61 06).

In Bruyeres, L’Alpin Steak House (+33 4 79 00 61 01) is near the Toblerone walkway so attracts visitors from Reberty as well as Les Bruyeres. It does very good pizzas and steaks. The more traditional La Marmite du Geant (Tel: +33 4 79 00 74 75) serves up large portions of duck, trout and steak, and branches out into scallops and foie gras on occasion. It also has a fine pizza menu.

If you don’t mind travelling 6 km for a really stellar dining experience (and spending a lot of money), the famous La Bouitte restaurant is in the small village of Saint Marcel, between Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville. It has won multiple awards and is considered by many to be the best restaurant in the Alps. It is open for lunch (good skiers in good snow conditions can almost ski to it) and for dinner. Booking ahead is essential – tel: +33479089677.
