This was our favourite place to dine on piste - but you MUST book in advance. Indeed it is expensive so be prepared to pay up and sit back and get your value by enjoying a long lunch rather than ducking in and out.

This restaurant is ridiculously expensive. €25 for a bowl of soup and €8 for a soft drink. There is no ambience. The aim of this restaurant is to push as many people through in the shortest possible time. The tables are ludicrously close together which...More

Truly special location. I don't think one can ever be tired of looking at the Mont Blanc. With a glass of Champagne in your hand at the same time, it would be difficult not to enjoy the moment... A very professional run establishment which is...More

L'Ideal is a Megeve institution . Great atmosphere and good food. Staff have always been most accommodating. Terrace is a must on a Sunny day.
