Al & Kat’s restaurant recommendations

FOR DINNER

Le Rocher
+33 4 50 75 78 47

Great pizza and good general menu – all within walking distance from our catered chalets! Also, if you go for a drink in the Marmotte D’Or (the bar next door) afterwards, then they will provide a free shuttle ride home or a taxi into town if you want to go for more drinks.

La Ferme De La Fruitiere
+33 4 50 79 12 39
Top of our list for a fondue, raclette or Pierre Chaude. This welcoming place is part of the Fruitiere L’Alpage, a working farm and dairy. Try the farm’s delicious cheeses in the cosy restaurant, with a traditional stone and wood interior warmed by an open fire.

L’Etale
+33 4 50 79 09 29
Most popular restaurant in Morzine and consequently it is always busy with a buzzing atmosphere. Huge menu with lots of choice for children as well as adults including steaks, ribs, pizza, pasta, fondue etc.

Le Grillon
+33 4 50 79 09 41
Really good all round restaurant with typical Savoyard menu. As well as being the place for a Cote de boeuf, there is also duck, chicken, fish and a wide range of salads. Friendly place and not too expensive. What make this restaurant particularly good is the fantastic customer service.

La Chaudanne
+33 4 50 79 12 68
A reliable favourite with many of Morzine’s returning visitors, the restaurant serves a varied menu of classic French, Italian and local dishes. If you’re looking for interesting fish dishes, which aren’t always easy to find in the mountains, this is a good bet. Service in the restaurant can sometimes be a bit slow so we recommend going for the earlier sitting of 7.30pm. There is also a lovely bar in the cave downstairs with a great wine list – perfect for a pre-dinner or post-dinner drink.

Bec Jaune
+33 4 50 79 08 44
Microbrewery with great range of home brews that also serves brilliant food. Head chef Matthew Stone creates dishes from raw ingredients, meaning everything – even the burger buns – is homemade. Soak up the chilled vibes and tuck into some delicious grub after the slopes. Meat lovers and veggies will be satisfied by the menu which ranges from vegan superfood burgers to pork belly ramen and ceviche tacos. Best restaurant in Morzine for catering to dietary requirements such as vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free.

Hideout Hostel
+33 7 68 63 48 21
Enjoy a relaxed pan-Asian dining experience. The award-winning food varies from ramen to sushi and includes their addictive Bang Bang Broccoli plus weekly specials created by Sharif Gergis and the Hideout Hostel kitchen.

La Chamade
+33 4 50 79 13 91
The place for a special occasion, where booking the chef’s table is a real treat. Inspired as much by his mother’s mountain recipes as he is by the top kitchens (including Paul Bocuse) where he learned his trade, third-generation chef Thierry Thorens makes exceptional use of local seasonal produce with inventive and refined food.  This is definitely not your usual mountain grub.

Les Vent D’Anges
+33 4 50 37 66 71
Fancier restaurant with more modern French cuisine – perfect for a celebration or special night out.

Mammas
+33 4 50 74 31 62
Good cheap option but it’s more café/takeaway in style so good for a quick bite if you are more interested in going for some drinks. Good pizza, burgers, noodles etc. (No need to book).

Chez Per’Syl
+33 4 50 04 18 52
Delicious takeaway pizzas.

 

FOR DRINKS

Beanies
(Rue du Bourg)
Ideal for your Martini classics, a Mojito, Long Island or something off-the-wall with one of their cocktail specials. We recommend starting the evening with a Chalet Garden – a gin-based concoction of lemon, elderflower and mint. Often has live music too!

Le Coup de Coeur
(Route de la Plagne, opposite sister venue La Chamade restaurant)
Serves French and selected world wines with a regularly changing selection of wines by the glass. In addition, a selection of port and a fine collection of whiskies are available as a tasting experience.

Bec Jaune
(Route de la Combe À Zore)
From American IPAs to lagers, and porters to traditional ales, there’s nothing like a flavoursome craft beer after a day on the slopes. All of this microbrewery’s beer is brewed in-house by Chrigl, who learnt his trade at The Kernel Brewery, London. Open from 4pm every day.

Bar a Vin
(Route de la Plagne )
La Chaudanne’s vaulted stone cellar tucked away beneath the restaurant. An intimate place to try a few wines under the guidance of a sommelier.

Laury’s Cocktail Bar
(Route des Udrezants, underneath Hideout Hostel)
The local’s secret for late night drinks. Enjoy table service, live jazz, funk and soul, and a truly explosive drinks menu. Open from 7pm to 2am.

 

FOR BRUNCH/LUNCH

Satellite Coffee
(Rue du Bourg)
If you’re suffering with a hangover and missed the hot option in your chalet, brunch here might be just what you need to save your ski day. Fill your boots with carrot cake pancakes and (vegan) butterscotch, blueberry sauce and toasted nut crumble; Boston beans with bubble and squeak, wilted spinach, cheddar and spring onions; halloumi pitta; plus bacon and sausage baps with glorious extras, like smashed avocado, hash brown and jalapeños! Freshly baked cakes, homemade smoothies and milkshakes are also served all day.

La Bonbonnière
(Route de la Plagne)
As you would expect of any French resort, Morzine has a whole host of boulangeries to choose from. They really are all good; however, La Bonbonnière is particularly difficult to walk past without stepping in for a sweet treat. Chocolate-almond croissant anyone?

Beanies
(Rue du Bourg)
As well as being a great cocktail venue in the evening, Beanies is also a great daytime café. Open from 10am every day and serving pizzas from 5pm.
