In spite of other reviews we had a thoroughly enjoyable lunch here yesterday. Menu is limited but authentic French which made a big difference at the end of our holiday. Service was laid back which suited the weather and food was tasty. Would come back

Very limited menu at lunchtime which was quite expensive for what it was. Lovely setting with good views and easily accessible from the piste just didn't think the menu and the food matched up to other restaurants near by.

Stopped for coffee at this hidden away spot just off les Gentianes piste. It has its own path through the snow and is a great place to relax on sofas and chairs facing the lake and mountains.

Got taken here as part of a day VVT-ing from Morzine. Great location with tables and deckchairs looking out over the lake. Ordered a burger, frites, drink and donut deal which came quickly and filled me up ahead of the afternoon. Nothing special but not bad either.

Situated over looking the lake and valley we could also sit watching the children playing on the climbing frames. The coffees arrived soon after we ordered them and tasted all the better for being Al fresco. There is a restaurant as well as the cafe and we will go there in the next days.

on a beautiful sunny day I tried to have lunch here and even though there were plenty of places left open, the staff refused to give me a table, most likely because of my high school French and lack of French passport. I stept into this restaurant which has a beautiful quiet location on a sunny day in feb 2015.... More

After researching which restaurants we should visit during our stay in Les Gets, we decided to try Restaurant du Lac. The reviews looked very promising and it was easy too find about half way down the blue runs to the left of the lift. We got there early about 12 midday and we managed to get a table outside with...

Visited this lake side restaurant on a sunny day, had table outside and was perfectly sheltered and warm. Easy to access off the slopes on way back to the town. Not the biggest menu but something to suit all. We had a variety of items from salad to soup to lamb confit. All beautifully presented on slate dishes and great... More

After a day on the hill and a drink at the top of the mountain, we always, always, stop off at Restaurant du Lac on the way home to watch the sun go down. Brilliant for that last drink of the ski-ing day and a catch up with friends and family, the atmosphere outside is very pleasant and you are... More

Just off the red/blue run on the way home, first plateau from the town of Les Gets sits a beatifully located sun trap overlooking the part frozen lake. Choose this spot for the "big lunch" of the week with the family and was very glad we did. Pleasant service, a very quaffable local brew and plate sized steaks, tasty and... More
