Nestling at the bottom of an ancient river gorge, the old market town of Morzine is a favourite destination for skiing families and couples alike. Many return year after year not just for picturesque landscapes or the friendly people, but for the food! I am often asked by couples returning to Morzine, or visiting for the first time – where are the very best places to eat? There are host of great restaurants to choose from, but if you only have a handful of days up in the mountains, here are a few that visitors just cannot afford to miss.

L'Atelier d'Alexandre Restaurant

If you are looking for pure luxury dining, L’Atelier is perfect. Established by head chef Alexandre Baud-Pachon in 2004, the restaurant is located in the Hotel Le Samoyède and boasts a Michelin star. Alexandre prides himself on using the freshest local ingredients and showcases some of the best French mountain cuisine. The menu is pricy – the cheapest set menu is €45 – but it contains 5 of the most luxurious courses you could imagine. L’Atelier’s 10,000 bottle strong wine cellar isn’t bad either for lovers of the French grape.

La Paika

A restaurant right in the action, La Paika can be found in a gorgeous wooden cabin right in the centre of the Les Gets ski area. On clear and bright days diners can eat out on the terrace which offers a great view of the surrounding slopes. If you or your loved one is a meat lover then La Paika is the place for you, offering a huge array of cold cuts, as well as locally reared meats cooked over a huge wood burning stove. Make sure you arrive with a roaring appetite and leave in time to catch the last chairlift home.

Restaurant Le Clin d’Oeil

Cheese is not hard to come by on skiing holidays. However, with all that cheese to choose from, finding the best cheese menu can be a struggle. Luckily, Le Clin d’Oeil in the centre of Morzine offers the tastiest cheesy dishes available. Run by Jean-Noël and Kristel for the last 10 years, this cosy restaurant specialises in South West French cuisine and serves up the best tartiflette for miles around. Guests can enjoy their meals with a great selection of wine.

La Grange Restaurant

Getting to La Grange requires a bit of exploring. Tucked away on one of Morzine’s pretty backstreets, this popular eatery is only a minutes’ walk from the tourist office. Inside diners will find an authentically decorated restaurant which doesn’t pack its guests in but leaves plenty of room to breathe. Open during the summer and winter months, La Grange offers the some of the best vegetable dishes in gorge, useful if you need a break from all that meat and cheese. Even more useful is the private catering service they offer, making a delicious meal in the comfort of your chalet a reality.

Getting to Morzine

Morzine sits right on the French border with Switzerland and is not too far from Geneva. If you’re flying into Geneva, airport transfers to the town are easy to organise. Popular airliners easyJet, British Airways, and jet2 all fly direct to Geneva Airport with a flight time of around 1 ½ hours. Once you are in Switzerland, Shuttle Direct’s Geneva airport transfers whisk travellers away to Morzine in the same time for a fixed low price, so no haggling when you get here. You can also bring your ski gear on the transfer for free, as long as you let us know in advance. Easy.
