Morzine’s 10 best restaurants
Eating out is a real highlight of a Morzine holiday; with so many excellent restaurants to sample, you will be spoilt for choice during your stay here. We have compiled our top 10 to help you make the most of your stay in Morzine. Whether it is on the mountain on skis or in town with children, our list has it all….
Best restaurant for lunch on the mountain – La Ferme des Lindarets
Located a short few turns below the Linderets bubble, La Ferme des Lindarets is a true ski-in ski out venue. Somewhat surprisingly, the menu isn’t the traditional Alpine collection of cheese, meats and potatoes. But instead, a refreshing selection of fine Italian food. Ideally located for a mid-ski stop, this cosy italian eatery will warm your boots, gloves and spirits.
Favourite dish: Parmigiana Di Melanzane
Location: 4754 Route des Lindarets
Tel: (00 33) 4 50 74 09 60
Best restaurant for a large group of people – L’Etale
Right in the heart of the village, L’Etale is a Morzine icon. Famous for its flaming meat trees and many other Savoyard favorites, L’Etale should not be missed.
Remember to book early to avoid disappointment.
Favourite dish: Pierre chaude Royales

Location: 80 Taille de Mas du Pleney

Best restaurant for a young family – Le Tremplin
The Tremplin most commonly associated with its often rowdy aprés sessions. But with a wide selection of food on offer, a decent childrens menu and an outdoor play area it is also a great family friendly restaurant. The welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff will leave people of all ages feeling satisfied.
Favourite dish: Roasted salmon bomlo back with gratin dauphinois
Location: 166 Taille de Mas du Pleney
Tel: (0033) 4 50 79 12 31
Best restaurant for the most magical setting – La Crapahute
Accessed solely by leg power, this alpine tavern offers a full ‘lost in the wilderness’ experience. After parking at the furthest car accessible point of valley de la Manche, a 20 minute walk up the ski du fond piste will reveal twinkling lights through the trees and the sound of classical music drifting with the mist. The menu is limited and cheese based. The atmosphere is fun and quirky, the drinks will flow and at the end of the night, with your faces hurting from smiling and your bellies full of cheese, there’s a blood pumping headtorch-lit sledge ride back to civilisation.
Favourite dish: Tartiflette
Location: 5972 Route de la Manche
Tel: (00 33) 6 04 53 19 34
Best restaurant for a traditional fondue – Chalet du Verand
Found half way down the Prodains homerun, beneath the gondola, tucked under a blanket of snow is this charming little restaurant. Situated at altitude and serving only traditional savoyard cuisine, made with locally sourced ingredients, this intimate gem does not disappoint.
Open during the day for ski traffic or into the evening for the more adventurous. A headtorch decent (on skis, snowboard, or sledge) is an experience not to be missed.
Favourite dish: Fondue Savoyarde
Location: Piste du Crot
Tel: (00 33) 4 50 83 30 03
Best restaurant for pizza – L’Improviste
Morzine’s only pizza specific restaurant and named the L’improviste for its off-the-wall yet delicious selection of pizza, this is your go to pizza stop in the town center. Offering a range of pizzas from the traditional right through to varieties you’ve not seen before or since. Be aware waiting times can be long in busy periods for those who do not order early.
Favourite dish: Forestière Pizza made with fresh mushrooms and smoked pancetta
Location: 89 Route de la Manche
Tel: (0033) 4 50 04 63 80
Best restaurant for an affordable meal – Au Bon Coin
Conveniently located near the Pleney ski lift, the Burger Place is a cheap and cheerful option for those who need a hearty bite between runs. With a fast food vibe and a menu to match. Being the cheaper and faster option doesn’t mean a lack of quality, and being family owned and run gives it a charm and character not usually found with this style of eatery.
Favourite dish: Royal Burger with bacon and cheese
Location: 784 Av. de Joux Plane
Tel: 04 50 74 71 30
Best restaurant for vegetarian/vegan cuisine – Le Bec Jaune
Morzine’s very own microbrewery and restaurant combo. The Bec offers an original menu not found elsewhere in the valley. Often praised for its vegetarian and vegan options, the Bec boasts an impressive worldly menu for foodies, plus solid meat and home brewed craft beer options for those preferring the more traditional approach to a night in a brewery.
Favourite dish: Oyster Mushroom Poké Bowl

Best restaurant for pre-ski breakfast – Satellite Coffee
The pumping heart of Morzines coffee addiction, Satellite is the place to find your daily caffeine fix. Alongside the high quality and in-depth drinks menu is a great selection of eat in and take away food. Whole foods and healthy options feature prominently on the carte, however the cake selection should never be overlooked. And don’t forget to grab a home-made sausage roll for the road too!
Favourite dish: Prana Chai with oat milk
See the menu: https://satellitecoffee.fr
Location: 152 Rue du Bourg, 74110 Morzine
Best restaurant for a special soiree – L’Hôtel du Lac
Situated on the shores of Lac Montriond the location offers something rarely seen in the mountains: a view over the water (although often buried under a meter or more of ice and snow), its scenic spot is only part of the charm of Hotel du Lac.
Offering an impressive cocktail menu and heated terrace, the menu shies away from the traditional alpine vibe, offering more of a modern and flavorful approach to mountain food. They also offer shuttle services to and from the restaurant, so ring up and book so you don’t have to drive!
Favourite dish: Pavé of sea trout, crushed new potatoes, tomato beurre blanc
