The service is friendly and good Prices are decent for what you get Keep... More

Overall, would not rate as positive as most people have done here; based on the reviews I was slightly disappointed. Great location, nice interior and friendly staff. Food was good - certainly better than average, but not blowing you away either. Excellent wine list, we really enjoyed it :-) Price quality certainly good for Megeve, although I have been to...

The food quality was fairly average and not worth the money spent. The restaurant charged 5.5 euros for tape water which is uncommon in France.

Dinner there was extremely nice. The service was good, the wine list formidable. Everyone in my group said it was the best dinner they had in Megève

We drove to Le Refuge in a snowstorm for lunch as we couldn't see to ski. The atmosphere is alpine and friendly, the food was delicious and regional. Service was charming and we were allowed to practice our fractured French. Loved it so much we were back next day visibility was poor on the piste!

By far the best value for your money in Megeve. Not to say that it's cheap it's that good. Please just some menu tweaking. New dishes would be great. But 'nuff said on the downside, a great staple.

Welcoming, cozy place, all wooden made and well-attended in details. There's a big terrace outside where you can eat, perfect for summer days. The poached egg with lentils and crunchy bread with foie gras is one of the best things I have ever eaten...really extraordinary!!! I would go back only to have it again. The dear and black Angus were... More

We had a very relaxing evening here with some friends. There was a jazz group playing so the atmosphere was particularly good. Our food was delicious and the waitress who looked after us was very attentive. Like in many other restaurants in Megeve this is a good place to people watch. Definitely worth the drive up the hill.

Thank DiscerningAbbess
