This was our 4th night out eating in Les Contamines and it just seems to get better and better! This little place is turning into a gastronomic paradise rather than a super skiing destination! L'O a la Bouche is just divine! Not only is the decor modern and inviting the food is just out of this world! Honestly as good... More

This place presents itself as a haute cuisine fancy restaurant, but it's just not good enough and should maybe simplify. We came in a group of about 12, and while my starter was excellent, several people had the ceviche which was really not great. The mains again were variable in quality. Wine was very good, desserts were random and too... More

My title already says it all: we walked in a bit before dinner opening time to check for availability. Not only were we not chased a way (quite frequent in restaurants when you arrive before opening time), we were warmly greeted, shown around and felt absolutely welcome. We opted for the gourmet restaurant on the upper floors, and never regretted... More

Been numerous times and always good. Had our small wedding lunch here and it was amazing. Great food and atmosphere, looked after my coeliac friend really well and even made us a cake. Would always recommend if you like good food!

Fantastic. As good if not better than restaurants in Megeve and St. Gervais with coveted Michelin stars. Fabrice, Melanie and their staff do a superb job!

The food is incredible, really high standard, the restaurant itself while not huge, is really nice in an understated sort of way and the paintings of the local artist add to a truly beautiful, elegant atmosphere. The staff is lovely and helpful, we also received a complimentary drink of amazing homemade herbal liquor (made by the restaurant manager herself). If... More

In the upstairs restaurant he creative menus are updated very regularly so even with only 4 choices for starter, main and desserts, every time you go there is something new and something for everyone. There is always a fish choice for those who don't enjoy meat and vegetarians can be easily accommodated. The food is consistently excellent. The wines are... More

The menu was in french but the server took time in explaining that to us in English. Very attentive service when needed. Food was really good. Atmosphere was also nice. Recommend to people travelling to les contamines.

By far my favourite restaurant in this quirky town. As a vegan, travelling and eating our in France can be tough. The owner/chef at L'o a la Bouche always makes the most amazing effort to out together exquisite dishes. An absolute must, and a special treat for everyone!
