It’s likely you’ll be dining at your chalet for most of your ski holiday in Morzine, but the village offers a tempting culinary scene that’s not to be missed during your next visit. For the most part, you’ll find traditional Savoyard cuisine, and that’s not a bad thing. This is one of the best places to sample top-notch raclette and Le Farçon, a weirdly satisfying sweet and salty cake made of potatoes, cream, dried fruit, and bacon. And don’t worry, you’ll burn those extra calories off on the slopes. Here are a few of our favorite places to dine in Morzine.
890 Avenue de Joux Plane, 74110 Morzine, France
+33 4 50 79 16 30
Specializing in seasonal products and local specialties, La Rotonde offers French and Italian dishes including a full pizza menu. Their French specialties are equally enticing, with dishes including squab salad and a classic tartiflette.
Le Petit D
293C Chemin du Mas Metout, 74110 Morzine, France
+33 4 50 75 92 92
At the luxurious Hotel Le Dahu, Le Petit D is our favorite place for a really special occasion in Morzine. With incredible panoramic views, superb service, and a traditional menu of specialties from Haute-Savoie, it’s a wonderful way to visit and experience this storied hotel, even if you’re not staying there.
Nyon Derrière – Piste des Raverette, 74110 Morzine, France
+33 4 50 79 21 15
If you’re looking for a place that’s truly on the slopes, look no further than Chez Nannon. A former chalet, this tiny place is perched high up on the mountain of Nyon overlooking the surrounding slopes and peaks. They offer a homey menu of Alpine specialites that’s perfect (and quite convenient) for a midday ski lunch.
9 Place de l’Office du Tourisme, 74110 Morzine, France
+33 4 50 79 00 79
Hotel Le Samoyede is full of charm, and their restaurant is no exception. Headed by talented chef Alexandre Baud-Pachon, L’Atelier offers a menu that elevates traditional Savoyarde fare to a new level. Offering some of the most innovative cuisine in Morzine, L’Atelier is an ideal spot for any special occasion.
Le Clin d’Oeil
63 route de la Plagne, 74110, Morzine, France
+33 4 50 79 03 10
Le Clin d’Oeil is a Morzine institution, offering classic Alpine comfort food including pan-fried foie gras, tartiflette, and probably the best travers du porc (pork ribs) in the Alps. They’re also justifiably famous for their hot stone grills, which let you cook your dinner right at the table.
590 route de la Plagne, 74110, Morzine France
+33 4 50 79 12 68
Just a short walk from the village, La Chaudanne offers a warm and buzzy vibe during the winter months and a more relaxed setting during the off-season. Their wine list is one of the best in Morzine, so if for nothing else just pop in for an après-ski glass.
Le Coup de Coeur
Route de la Plagne, 74110 Morzine, France
+33 4 50 79 13 91
Across the street from the popular restaurant La Chamade, this wine bar is owned and operated by the same team and offers dishes from the same kitchen but in a more casual atmosphere. Try to get a seat in the stone-lined cellar downstairs or, if it’s a sunny day, perch on one of the sheepskin-lined chairs on the patio to enjoy the view. The menu offers a wide selection of cheese, charcuterie, and sweets, along with a vast wine list. It’s a great spot for a casual lunch near the slopes.
Piste des Vorosses – La Turche, 74260 Les Gets, France
+33 4 50 92 85 22
Situated high above the slopes of La Turche in nearby Les Gets, La Païka offers some of the best views of the valley and menus to match. Specialties include barbecued meats as well as indulgent charcuterie boards featuring local cheeses and meats.
60 Route des Udrezants, 74110 Morzine, France
+33 7 68 63 48 21
For something a little more unexpected, look no further than The Hideout Hostel. Each season, they select a new culinary concept to feature. Last year’s ramen pop-up was a hit, and this year, chef Sharif Gergis of Guerilla Dining takes the helm. Expect a pan-Asian menu and a lively, younger crowd here.
337 Route de la Plagne, 74110 Morzine, France
+33 4 50 79 12 39
L’Alpage makes their own selection of seven cheeses in-house using raw, local milk, so it’s one of the best places to pick up some tasty souvenirs. You can also try all the cheeses (and more) at their restaurant next door. It’s one of the coziest restaurants in town, with a central fireplace and views into the rustic cheese cellar.
