Morzine’s food scene is an eclectic mix that just keeps getting bigger and more diverse. In this, increasingly, year-round destination, which attracts a diverse crowd of families, young skiers, mountain bikers and athletes, you’re as likely to find delicious Buddha bowls and Ramen noodles as you are traditional fondue or steak et frites. What’s more, Morzine’s dining experiences seem to get quirkier and more adventurous each year.
Up at Lac Mines d’Or you can enjoy lunch in a bubble. While taking in breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains, guests get to feast on Savoyard favourites, like fondue, raclette and pierrade chaude, all made from local ingredients. Resto des Bulles will be open from December to mid-April.
In town, Kamado Kitchen will be serving pan-asian dishes on its sunny terrace at the bottom of the Pleney. Delicious ramen, noodles and curry can also be take home with you in eco-friendly, fully recyclable containers.

Branded as a ‘Franburger’ specialist, this upmarket burger joint delights meat lovers with its fresh – and French – take on this fast food favourite, with a focus on local, seasonal flavours. Their delicious creations are washed down with brews from their excellent and unusual beer list.
Just outside of town, but definitely worth a mention, a new eatery called El Chalten is serving a wonderful selection of empanadas. Delicious little tastes of Argentina, the parcels are perfectly baked and stuffed with fresh, high quality ingredients, inspired by the cooks family secrets and traditional recipes. Also offering take away and located on Route des Grand Alps on the way into resort, this little Latin gem is worth consideration for something different when you don’t fancy cooking or going out on your chalet team’s night off.
