I just love this place, the food is absolutely delicious, service professional and welcoming,position is absolutely excellent. There is a new decking area which wihile spacious was not quite so intimate and atmospheric as the old courtyard area but fantastic views. Perhaps some sculpture or dressing may assist ?

La Bouitte did not disappoint at all! At every point in our visit we were absolutely astounded by the quality, professionalism and inventiveness of all involved in our visit. From pre lunch drinks on the deck on arrival, to the kitchen giving us a leaving present of a pastry so that we could extend our eating pleasures and memories even... More

We stayed there for four days during the ski season. The staff really could not try harder and we have stayed at a lot of 'Relais & Chateau' over the years. I was down with a bug and I was with a fourteen year old (so not the ideal age for Michellin Three Star) so we did not eat at... More

Delightful situation in hamlet near St Martin - shuttle service available. Staff assiduous, and charming, mostly speaking English. Father and son chefs are a longstanding partnership building up to their 3 well deserved stars over many years. We had the Three Surprises menu - with pre-course delicacies, post-course delicacies, end of meal delicacies, this was a very substantial lunch, and... More

Much better than the last couple of times I've been, where they have struggled with larger tables, 8 and 12. Just feel that the convivial Savoyarde atmosphere they try to create with the decor doesn't go with the stilted, robotic staff. I'm afraid I found the sommelier a little arrogant also. Is €400 per head too much, even for 3... More

The chef comes around often to check on guests. The traditional recipes mixed in with a typical Savoie ambiance make for a wonderful evening. The staff gets an A+, the food is definitely worth the drive through French vacation traffic...

A fantastic venue for that special long ski lunch. All dishes have a Savoyard twist and are made from locally source ingredients. The Tartiflette air was spectacular, the Caviar with Cauliflower snow even better. A main course of pigeon breast was cooked to perfection and the sommelier matched all of our six courses to perfection.

We have eaten regularly at the extraordinary restaurant for over 25 years so we have seen it develop. It fully merits its three Michelin stars. Food is impeccably cooked, and it is incredibly creative. It is in a wonderful location. Service is exceptional. Eating here is a really special occasion, although it is possible to arrive on skis. Last year... More

We have been coming here for 15 years and have loved seeing how the cuisine has developed. I have always found this one of the most enjoyable skiing lunch spots in the Alps and our latest visit did not disappoint. Everything from the house aperitif (sounded strange with Absynthe and Champagne but tasted great) and amuse bouche right through to... More

Tried the chef's 5 course tasting menu. Interesting food combinations and good wine pairings. If opting for the chef's menu, the whole table has to take part. My teen's taste buds were not yet ready for the experience:) As one would expect from a 3 star Michelin, a rather pricey night.
