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.

We just enjoyed our first meal at La Bouitte and are already planning a return visit. One of our party is a vegetarian but was prepared to eat meat if the whole table wanted to enjoy the tasting menu, but actually the kitchen was very accommodating and offered a vegetarian tasting menu. We all decided to take the veggie option,... More

I had a single night stay with dinner here in early September 2015. There are 16 rooms in all (ours was "Angeline"). The property is, as one might expect in a ski resort, rustic, with plenty of wood panelling and a fine view out from the terrace over the mountains. The room was good, with comfortable bed, a decent shower... More
