Discover the top Morzine places to eat

Updated

There are a wide range of restaurants in Morzine and Les Gets to suit all tastes and budgets. Below you'll find all the best places to eat in and where to find your favourite style of cuisine.

BBQ Restaurants


Morzine
Inferno Terrace Restaurant: Situated at the top on the Nyon Télécabine, always buzzing; with the sizzling outdoor BBQ and wood burning pizza oven it’s just what you need after exerting yourself on skis or on your bike. 

Les Gets
La Paika: Similarly on the blue slope of La Turche in Les Gets it's renowned for its BBQ buffets. It’s popular with expats, tourists and locals and is a great stop off for a big lunch on the way down the mountain. Shuttles run from the Marmotte Hotel on certain days through the winter.

Breakfast & Brunch


Satellite Coffee: Named after a popular off-piste run in Avoriaz, a really popular café on Route du Bourg in the centre of Morzine with delicious cakes, snacks and coffee. There are plenty of healthy granola breakfasts to choose from as well as more substantial breakfast sandwiches and rolls. Opening at 09:30 through the winter, it’s a great place to kick start your day. 

Beanies Café Bar: Just down the road from Satellite Coffee, it opens most days at 10:30 and so is more of a brunch place than breakfast! You'll find a great selection of coffees and cakes during the day. It turns into a bar at night, hosting some of the most popular bands in the area. They also do a burger menu if you’re looking for something a little more filling.

Rhodos Bar: Just a little way away by the Mairie bus stop, does hearty breakfasts in the winter, opening bright and early (07:00) if you want to get the first lift. Offering a fry up or a sandwich, or burgers later on, Rhodos has something for every meal of the day.

Marmotte d'Or: In Montriond and quickly becoming one of the favourite brunch spots in the Morzine area.

Child-friendly Restaurants


Most of the restaurants in Morzine are child friendly, with kid's menus and early sittings, but we’ve come across a few which go the extra mile. 

The Alpen Roc Restaurant: Has a simple interior but don’t let this put you off. It’s got a fantastic reputation for delicious good value food with an extensive kids menu. It serves traditional French specialities but also staple dishes for children including burgers, chips, nuggets and pasta.

Le Tyrolien: Similarly great for families with a large sunny terrace and a small play area out the back, it’s perfect for children and adults. Specialising in typical Savoyard cuisine such as cheese fondue and tartiflette, they also offer a selection of meat, fish and pasta dishes. Their wide range of pizzas come highly recommended.

Le Petit D Restaurant: Has a children’s service at 19:00 during peak times, when children are allowed to eat together under their parent’s supervision. It’s just 400m from the Super Morzine lift within the Hotel Dahu. It’s also great for adults with a gourmet menu and an ‘on the go’ selection if you’re after something lighter.

Some restaurants don’t have children’s menus so if this is important to you, we’d advise you check when booking.

French Restaurants


Morzine

French cuisine in the mountains tends to be traditional Savoyard dishes such as fondue and tartiflette - hearty and filling to keep you going on the slopes all day!

Le Grillon: Serves typical Savoyard cuisine in a warm and welcoming restaurant. It’s a good place for larger groups with its long tables and reasonable prices. Two strong recommendations are the tartiflette with mushrooms and the vacherin cheese, similar to a large baked Camembert served with cured meats and potatoes or chips.
 
Le Mas de la Coutettaz: Also known as The Farmhouse, the hotel and restaurant is the oldest building in Morzine and for a special occasion, is by far a favourite for both location and food. Built in 1771, this breathtakingly beautiful old farmhouse has maintained its traditional décor and is well worth a visit. A fine dining set menu is served every night from 20:00 (with canapés in the bar beforehand from 19:30) except for Wednesdays when a Savoyard Banquet is served. Children are welcome from the age of thirteen and above, although if your child is younger and you wish for them to join you at dinner, please mention this when you phone. 

La Grange: Set in a bright, comfortable and warm venue, it offers you traditional, local and Savoyard specialities. If you want nothing but Morzine's traditional food which caters for all dietary requirements, La Grange is perfect for you. This restaurant is family friendly and they also do a well priced lunch menu. 

L'Atelier: Probably Morzine's classiest and most expensive restaurant, it offers you refined cuisine from a Michelin chef. As well as taster menus, Alexandre Baud-Pachon cooks fish, meat and traditional meals such as foie gras with spices combined with local products. This restaurant is perfect for a special evening when you wish to indulge your taste buds. 

L’Etale: If you want something just as special but at a slightly lower cost, this restaurant is located near the Pléney lift and l’Opera nightclub, and is reputed to be one of Morzine's best restaurants. If you’re after traditional dishes like fondue and raclette, or you’re after something lighter, like a salad, L’Etale has it all. It can get very busy, so book ahead and be prepared for a longer evening.

Hotel les Bruyeres: Sticking with the traditional French theme, you won’t regret a visit here. With a menu of fondue, raclette, tartiflette and other local Savoyard specialities, it’s an experience you won’t forget. It’s family friendly and open all year. Situated at the bottom of the Pléney slopes, you can easily pop in as you head home after a long day on the snow and, unlike most restaurants in Morzine, it’s open all year and offers a vegetarian menu on request.

La Dez'Alp: Traditional yet modern Savoyard style restaurant and brasserie in the heart of Morzine. They're open for lunch and dinner, and serve up a mix of traditional Savoyard and French cuisine. Their desserts are to die for and the presentation is extra special. This food comes with a warning though: You won’t want to eat for a good day or so after. It’s very filling! You can also pop in for a cheeky drink or a crepe, as they also offer a café service too. 

Restaurant Le Clin d'Oeil: Behind Rhodos bar in Morzine it's popular amongst locals and is famous for it’s traditional cooking. It’s influenced by dishes from the south west of France, which means there’s lots of duck on the menu! As well as duck in its various forms it also serves more contemporary dishes like crayfish risotto, roast rack of lamb and BBQ spare ribs.

Chalet Philibert: Wine lovers will love this restaurant and it's recommended in the Michelin, Hubert and Pudlowski food guides. With a menu based on local flavours and dishes it’s already special, but the wine list is what makes it stand out. The list includes a fine selection of Grand Cru's in addition to locally grown wines.

Le Fangle: If you're looking for a mountain restaurant with plenty of charm, this place has a roaring central fireplace and can be found on the pistes on the way down from Avoriaz to Morzine. 

Petit Dru: In summer or winter you can't go wrong with a visit to the restaurant, which has a huge focus on fresh ingredients and has been awarded the 'maitre restaurateur' title to reflect this. You can find them on the road to Avoriaz. 

Les Gets

La Piste Noire and La Pivotte are two charming restaurants based in La Marmotte Hotel in the centre of Les Gets. The menu at La Piste Noir combines both traditional and modern French dishes all made from local produce. There’s also an extensive choice for children, hoping to give the little ones their first introduction of typically French food. La Pivotte serves traditional Savoyarde meals including raclette and fondues which you can eat in front of a cosy log fire. Also at La Marmotte, is Restaurant La Bisktacha, a brasserie offering lots of grilled meat dishes with world flavours. 

The Christiania: Restaurant found at the bottom of the Chavannes chairlift on the right hand side of the front de neige. They have a reasonably priced menu including lots of local specialities and hearty, filling dishes.

Italian & Pizza Restaurants


La Rotonde: Run by the same people who run L’Etale and known for it’s friendly service and good value food.

However, if you’re with people who don’t want to move away from eating the traditional dishes, it also has a typical alpine menu to choose from too. Based at the bottom of the Pléney lift, it’s easily accessible after a day on the slopes. 

The Alpine Lodge: Also famous for its pizzas alongside a menu full of Italian flavour are some of the more traditional Savoyard dishes and unsurprisingly, the ever-present fondue.

Michelin-Starred Restaurants


Morzine has no Michelin starred restaurants but there are at least three in the resort that are recommended by the Guide Michelin.

L'Atelier: Hôtel Le Samoyède is praised for its local cuisine inspired by fresh market produce and featuring exotic influences. If you can't decide what to go for then you can try a tasting menu of six or eight smaller dishes.

La Ferme de la Fruitière: Immerse yourself in the traditional ambience of an alpine cheese farm. Try all the local specialities such as Berthoud, Abondance, Tomme and Reblochon beside a crackling log fire.

Pubs & Gastropubs


Something that appears to be gaining in popularity in Morzine, is the pub or gastropub, which offers the après-ski experience alongside a chance to line the stomach.

Bec Jaune Brewery: Makes its own beers, often only serving two types from the pumps but has proven to be a favourite amongst locals and tourists. It has a short but very satisfying food menu, offering burgers, its renowned glory bowls (full of vegetables, meat and a delicious dressing), and wedges and nachos that are famous across the resort. It’s brilliant for vegetarians as they offer nutty, tofu filled dishes. 

La Taverna: If you’re after a slightly lighter bite, and perhaps are more interested in an après experience, this bar in the main square in Morzine is a must. It does lovely home made hot chocolate out of a terracotta jug, warming mulled wine, and anything else you fancy drinking! It has plenty of snacks on the menu but offers more filling traditional dishes too, like Croque Monsieur sandwiches, Savoyard platters and tasty tapas.

Haka Bar: Not so bothered about the food but want a good, reasonably priced pint? Then this place just up from the main square in Morzine is perfect for you. It sells tapas, chips and burgers, and during happy hour its pints drop in price (which is the cheapest pint found in the centre of Morzine).

Le Coup de Cœur Wine Bar: A little up market from Haka Bar, it has a heated terrace for the winter overlooking Pointe de Nyon. It has a wine list that takes you on a trip around France and offers some delicious meals, from pizza and salad to a cheese board that will definitely leave you wanting more. 

The Aubergade Hotel and now the Cottage (both run by the team at Mountain Mavericks) are also proving to be really popular eating venues at the base of the Pléney lift. They have cocktail hours, drinks promotions and an amazing food menu including pies, burgers and huge Sunday lunches! They’re also great evening venues with a number of live music events taking place there each week. 

Cook Café: At the top of the Mosettes chairlift is a great place to go for some of the best gourmet burgers in the area. Take a seat on one of their comfy sofas and enjoy the amazing views.
