La Grande Ourse Restaurant, Les Gets

On Mont Chery at the top of the Grand Ourse chair

Featured in: | Updated

This is a family run restaurant on Mont Chèry at an altitude of 1750metres (5742 feet)  overlooking the picturesque mountain village of Les Gets.

An English family run the restaurant with and Cornish chef who offers a wide variety of dishes from good old sausage and mash - with home-made sausages including pork & leek, wild boar & chorizo, venison & caramelised red onion or firecracker pork - to Rosé wine spaghetti with lobster, and their speciality: lobster and scallop tartiflette. They also have a smoker with which they slowly cook pulled pork and lamb.

You can sit inside or on a nice sunny day or sit out on the snow terrace, relax and enjoy the view. On the second floor is the main restaurant and terrace. On this floor they offer waitress service so you can enjoy what has been acclaimed since the 1930’s as one of the best views of Mont Blanc in the Alps.

Open daily from 09:00-17:00 during the ski season. Also open for evening meals every Wednesday and Thursday during the winter season, when you'll be whisked up in a snow groomer for a five-course fine dining experience.

  • "Beautiful view and a varied menu. Reasonably priced. Excellent coffee. It's up a chair lift but, apparently, they do dinner and take you up their private piste basher. Lovely quiet ski area as well." - Trip Advisor
  • "This restaurant was a brilliant find. Run by a very friendly Cornish family the restaurant has a great menu mixing traditional Savoyard mountain cuisine, interesting burger options, great British homemade pies and wonderful desserts. The views of Mont Blanc are truly stunning." - Trip Advisor
  • "This is a Resturant on the slopes, run by a very friendly English family. It does have all the dishes you would expect in a ski resort Resturant. However the atmosphere is a little like a gastropub in the English countryside. The service is very helpful and friendly and the food excellent. Overall very unique. The skiing is excellent." - Trip Advisor
