Changed our original plan of lunch on the slopes to come here instead because the weather wasn't good. It was a great decision. The venue is beautiful inside and the food was as good as ever. Alex was, as usual, a charming host. Try the mushroom and chestnut soup - it was superb. Le Plantin is definitely worth a visit... More

Never had anything other than great food here! Have been many times and it's a lovely place to go. The weather was poor so we decided to go for lunch. Alex did his usual wonderful job of looking after us. The dishes were all really good! You can have anything off the menu and you won't be disappointed, but ask... More

This place is on the road from Meribel Villages to La Tania - but they'll pick you up and drop you off in most three valley locations. It is going all out for Michelin stars seems to me. They're already listed in the guide and at dinner they go all out - amuse bouche, home made breads, a wine list... More

Family group of 6, aged 13 to 50 had a thoroughly good evening. The welcome and service were exemplary. The food was declared delicious by all; truffled ham a particular favourite. Not a cheap evening but it is a special dining room and well off the beaten track. They will provide a local pick up and drop off if you... More

This restaurant is one of our all time favourites for lunch. It is on the higher scale price wise with a 2 course menu at 38 euros . But boy..what superb food...michelin style and the service was as usual excellent. We were there early season and it was quiet due to the lack of snow down to the village. But... More

Burger, chips and beer for 11 euros - great for a lunch time stop with the family or friends. Thoroughly enjoyable experience - worth a visit

A little Intimate restaurant with wonderful food. The Mushroom soup is absolutely one of the best! The sweetbreads are great too.

We arrived to an empty restaurant, but still managed to be ignored by the two waiters for over 20 mins. Only by us having to ask to order did they finally take our order... then locals arrived and we where forgotten about as their aperitifs came and went and our wine had not even arrived. Only when we asked for... More

We returned for lunch to this restaurant for the first time for at least 5-6 years as previously we felt that whilst the food is good that it is very pricey for what you get.

If you are looking for somewhere special to eat and you are in the 3 Valleys then this is a must visit. The food is spectacular, the restaurant itself is very comfortable in every way and a cut above all of the others that we have visited in the region. The owner was most helpful and attentive and gave excellent... More
