Any time of year, Morzine is an excellent place to eat, drink and be merry. Whether you’re hitting the slopes at the peak of the ski season in Morzine, or enjoying the scenic natural alpine beauty of Morzine in the summer, there is always something delicious on the menu. Check out our guide to the very best of Morzine’s many restaurants, and take your pick for when you’re next in the area. 1. Atelier d’Alexandre The Atelier d’Alexandre is the on site restaurant at the prestigious Hotel Samoyède. With mouth-watering specialities including lobster ravioli flavoured with ginger, and a summer garden boasting breathtaking views of the alpine mountain scenery, this restaurant is widely recognised as the cream of Morzine’s restaurant scene. 2. Etale Situated near the Pleney lift and L’Opera nightclub, Etale is ideally located for your apres-ski or pre-club drinks. The restaurant is unpretentious, serving generous portions of traditional Savoyard dishes and huge pizzas. As it’s so popular, it is definitely a good idea to book ahead, especially during peak season. 3. The Flamme Also serving traditional Savoyard dishes, The Flamme is a popular, friendly restaurant with a terrace for outside dining when the weather allows. Try their fondue and tartiflette, gorge on their range of meat, chicken and fish dishes or order a delicious pizza. 4. Chamade Chamade was one of the very first restaurants to open in Morzine, back in 1969. Serving rustic French dishes, and adjoined to a popular wine bar which serrves tapas and pizza, Chamade is one of Morzine’s oldest and most loved eateries. 5. The Grillion Its wooden beams and open fire give The Grillion an authentic, cosy atmosphere. Serving everything from raclette and fondue to pierrade and vacherin, if you like cheese, you are going to fall in love with the menu at The Grillion. However, if all that fromage is giving you nightmares, check out the côte de boeuf, The Grillion’s signature dish. 6. L’Alpage Morzine’s finest ‘concept’ restaurant, when you come to dine at L’Alpage, a unique experience awaits you. You arrive directly into a traditional Savoyed kitchen, and dine at long communal tables. Again, the menu is somewhat cheese-oriented, but you’ll soon work it off with a bit of ski, or a hike around the mountains. 7. Auberge de la Combe a Zore The quirky, unique character of the Combe a Zore makes it a delight to dine at. The tables are repurposed Singer sewing machine bases, steaks are grilled over an open fire, and pizzas cooked in a traditional wood oven. This great restaurant regularly receives very good reviews, both for its quality and its reasonable prices. 8. Le Maz de la Coutettaz The Farmhouse, as it is more often known, is a wildly popular and lively venue for both dining and dancing the night away until 1am. You will dine at a large, banquet-style table, where everyone eats together, which is a really great way to make friends and have fun with fellow diners – holidaymakers and locals alike. 9. Le Fangle Located on the slopes leading up to Avoriaz, Le Fangle is a cosy yet spacious restaurant featuring gorgeous, traditional alpine interiors. With a roaring log fire and incredible views, this is a great place to spend time even if you’re not hungry. Each night after dining there is the opportunity for a torchlit descent back to Morzine, which is best encountered before you hit the wine. 10. La Ferme du Lac Vert Of course, we’ve saved the best ‘til last. At La Ferme du Lac Vert, our chalet chef, Chiefy, is a rare talent. A quarter finalist in Masterchef 2006, Chiefy’s menu will have your mouth watering before you’ve even sat down. The restaurant boasts a lively, sociable vibe, with five courses and a full cheese board. The atmosphere, quality of food and great surroundings make La Ferme du Lac Vert one of the very finest places to dine in the whole of Morzine. When you head off to Morzine for your next break, whatever time of year that may be, you need not experience it on an empty stomach. With so much gastronomic variety to choose from, your only concern should be where to eat next! The reasons to enjoy a holiday in Morzine just keep adding up… so when are you booking yours?
