As featured in the Michelin Guide for 2022, La Ferme de la Fruitière is a cheese-lover’s paradise.
The focus here is on local cheeses - Abondance, Tomme, Reblochon - which are all made and matured in the neighbouring fruitière (cheese producer). You can even see the wheels of cheese maturing through a glass window in the restaurant.
The dining space itself is stunning with large vaulted dining rooms and a huge wood-burning stove in the centre. In summer there is a spacious terrace in the garden to enjoy alfresco dining.
Our recommendation: The Fondue Savoyarde “Alpage” is an unbeatable classic.
For more information visit La Ferme de la Fruitière website.
Possibly the cosiest restaurant in Morzine, La Grange is an absolute treat. Set in a fairy light adorned wooden chalet in Morzine’s old town, it turns on the charm before you even step foot in the door.
La Grange describes its cuisine as “generous and traditional” and that’s exactly what it is. The menu includes a whole section dedicated to Fondue, and other local Savoyarde specialities.
The service is warm and friendly, and you’ll be well looked after by Alex and her team. Make sure you leave room for one of their homemade desserts and a shot of their house spiced rum.
Our recommendation: La Grange’s Raclette is fantastic, but don’t miss the Pommes Pont Neuf (chunky fried potatoes).
For more information visit the La Grange website.
La Rotonde is one of our favourite restaurants in Morzine. So much so that we even held our wedding rehearsal dinner here!
Beautiful decor, great service and a gorgeous garden for alfresco dining. What’s not to love?
The menu is packed full of high-quality delicious dishes, with plenty of choice for everybody. You’ll find all the Savoyarde classics here done to a super high-standard: Fondue, Raclette, Tartiflette, and some you probably haven’t heard of before such as Pierre Chaud (literally, hot stone).
Our recommendation: La Potence - a flaming tree of beef fillet, pan-fried to perfection.
Find out more on La Rotonde's website.
Le Colibri is a fantastic family friendly all-day restaurant, serving delicious breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.
It’s the perfect place to eat with small children as they really understand the “challenges'' of family dining. The restaurant is easily accessible with a buggy in tow, and for slightly older kids there's activity sheets and colouring in whilst waiting for food.
The children’s menu has plenty of tempting options, as does the adults' menu with stacked burgers, buddha bowls and sharing platters.
Our recommendation: La tartine truite saumonée with local Morzine rainbow trout is to die for.
Find out more on Le Colibri's website.
If you’re looking for a family-run restaurant with a cosy, welcoming vibe then look no further.
Le Clin d’Oeil is one of Morzine’s hidden gems, off the main strip and tucked away at the back of Carrefour. It’s run by husband and wife team, Kirstel and Jean Noël, who are originally from South-West France and who’ve brought some of that local cuisine to the Alps.
There’s a 2 course children’s menu which is great value, and the relaxed child friendly vibe means everyone can relax during dinner.
And if you can’t face going out they do a Click+Collect service so you won’t miss out!
Our recommendation: Try the South-West specialities like Cassoulet or Magret de Canard.
For more information visit Le Clin d'Oeil's website.
L’improviste is a fairly new addition to the Morzine dining scene, but that hasn’t stopped it from developing a strong reputation for serving the best pizza in town.
Offering perfect Neapolitan style pizza as good as any you’d find in the back streets of Naples. All made with authentic ingredients - San Marzano tomatoes and Fior di Latte mozzarella - for those true pizza-aficionados.
Even better, you can find L’Improviste under Pure Morzine’s Chalet Marie!
Our recommendation: Our favourite is the Pizza Maradonna.
For more information visit L'Improviste's Facebook page.
Le Tyrolien has been a Morzine pizza institution for years. Known for knocking out tasty, great value pizzas, most of which are €12.50 or less.
All the pizzas are named after local peaks, which is a nice touch. Our mountain chalet, Bô Morand, even had a namesake pizza although the flavour of that one is a bit wild!
The restaurant itself is quite small, although they do a takeaway service too. Its most recent location is on the main pedestrianised street running up to the Pleney, although we’ve heard rumours they’ll be locating to a bigger premises for this coming winter.
Our recommendation: Go for one of the Pizzas Blanches - we love La Tarte Morzinoise.
For more information visit Le Tyrolien website.
As mentioned in our Guide to Bars in Morzine, Coup de Coeur is a cracking spot for après-ski. With a prime-location on the Tourist Office Square, cosy up into a sheepskin armchair and settle in with your favourite tipple.
When hunger inevitably strikes you don’t even have to worry about relocating somewhere else for dinner. Coup de Coeur is the sister bar of La Chamade – one of the best restaurants in Morzine. So you know the bar menu is going to be top notch.
Amongst other delicious offerings, they have a great selection of wood fired pizzas. Thin, crispy and with just the right amount of toppings to hit the spot.
Our recommendation: We love the Pizza Chamade and the Pizza aux Herbes for vegetarians.
For more information visit Le Coup de Coeur website.
If a top-notch steak is your thing, then you need to head to La Rotonde.
The steak offerings here are seriously top quality - think Wagyu Rump Steak, Côte de Boeuf and Charolais Beef Fillet. Each served with a choice of sauces and moreish fries.
There’s an impressive list of wines to choose from, or you can order the house wines by the litre!
Make sure to leave room for one of their impressive coupe glacées (ice-cream sundaes). Although after that steak it might be wise to share.
Our recommendation: Find a partner willing to share the generous Côte de Boeuf.
For more information visit La Rotonde's website.
L’Etale is the fun-loving sister restaurant of La Rotonde. Always busy and always with a lively atmosphere. A great dining spot for large groups although you’ll definitely need to book ahead.
Here you’ll find the same high-end steak offerings and the more usual choices such as sirloin and flank steak. And if you can save room, the desserts are next level.
Don’t expect quick service, but sit back, have some drinks and soak up the atmosphere!
Our recommendation: The “Ladies Steak” is a perfectly sized small fillet. We love it rare with béarnaise sauce.
For more information visit L'Etale's website.
Ô Chalet has established itself as the go-to “fast food” spot in Morzine. If you’re hungry and in need of something quick & delicious, this is the place to head.
Burgers are the house speciality here. All made fresh with local ingredients and their secret “chalet sauce”, every single one is delicious (trust us, we’ve tried them all).
They don’t just do burgers either. The menu is packed full of tempting options like savoury crêpes, hot wraps and bagels. All best washed down with a nice cold pint at happy hour from 4-7pm.
Our recommendation: Anything with the twister fries will hit the spot!
For more information visit Ô Chalet's website.
You might know this spot as The Burger Place or Pleney Burger, but it’s recently had a bit of a makeover and re-emerged as Au Bon Coin.
You’ll find this little burger spot on the corner of the main Pleney road and the pedestrianised street down to the Tourist Office.
Inside you’ll find the most delicious juicy burgers in soft brioche buns that put most fast food restaurants to shame. They also do amazing waffles. Say no more.
Our recommendation: Le Bobo burger with bacon, egg and cheese is our favourite.
Papa Renard has quickly become one of our favourite burger spots, despite only being open a couple of seasons.
That’s because it does one thing - burgers - and does it extremely well. The menu is concise and focuses on local ingredients, especially local cheese, which makes for some seriously tasty burgers.
If you dine in, there’s 35 different craft beers to choose from. But there’s also the option to click and collect, or get delivery for orders over €25.
Our recommendation: Le Fondue Burger - the cheesiest burger you’re ever likely to eat!
For more information visit Papa Renard's website.
NB. Papa Renard is only open in the winter season.
These days in the Alps, vegetarians are pretty well catered for. However as a vegan, unfortunately it can be a bit more tricky to find something suitable.
Not at Hideout Hostel. Here, vegans will be treated to some of the most delicious Asian street food this side of Bangkok.
From seitan satay skewers to Vietnamese noodle salads. Your tastebuds will be tingling in all the best ways.
There’s a lively atmosphere and it generally attracts a younger crowd. Definitely book ahead to avoid disappointment.
Our recommendation: Don’t leave without trying one of the house cocktails!
For more information, visit Hideout Hostel's website.
It’s not hard to spot La Chamade - It’s the restaurant with the huge open fire outside and the wooden animal carvings.
Inside it’s modern decor and white tablecloths. It’s fancy without being pretentious. Perfect for a special meal.
Why not arrive early and head to the hidden cheese bar below the restaurant for a pre-dinner apéritif?
Perhaps not one to visit with vegetarians or vegans in tow, as the menu is fairly meat-heavy.
Our recommendation: The grilled black pork dish is Ric’s favourite.
For more information vist La Chamade's website.
La Chaudanne is the perfect date-night spot. Start your evening in the restaurant’s underground wine cellar where you can choose from over 350 wines to enjoy alongside delicious nibbles.
Then head upstairs to sample some delicious gourmet French food in a wonderful cosy high-end chalet setting. The menu here changes seasonally, and never fails to disappoint.
La Chaudanne is a little walk out of the town centre - 7 minutes on foot from the Tourist Office - but it’s oh so worth it.
Our recommendation: The “Le Gourmand” 3 course set menu at €35 is ever-changing and offers great value.
For more information visit La Chaudanne's website.
Also featured in the latest Michelin Guide, L’Atelier is Morzine’s fine dining restaurant. You’ll find the restaurant in the Hotel Le Samoyède which is just off the main square.
Every evening the chef prepares a different 4 course tasting menu, inspired by seasonal market produce. So you never know what you’re going to get, but you can expect a really special dining experience!
At €43 for 3 courses, and €48 for 4 courses, it’s surprisingly good value for such a unique experience.
Our recommendation: The wine cellar is expansive with over 200 bottles - ask for the sommelier’s recommendation.
For more information visit L'Atelier's website.
NB. The restaurant is only open for the winter season.
L’improviste is our go-to pizza takeaway in Morzine. We’ve tried quite a few pizzas from here and every single one has been exceptional.
It’s not the biggest restaurant and can get quite busy in the evenings, so grabbing a takeaway pizza is a great way to still enjoy the authentic Neopolitan fayre. There’s pasta and salads too, just in case pizza’s not your thing.
L’Improviste is also perfectly located for our guests staying in the old town and in the La Mernaz area of Morzine, so Chalets Marie, JJ & Bech’na and Apartments Vigneron & Marssie Lodge.
Our recommendation: We love the Pizza Maradonna.
For more information visit L'Improviste's Facebook page.
Kamado Kitchen is the latest offering from private chef team, The Alpine Foodie. It’s a pan-Asian pop up restaurant, offering delicious noodle dishes, Asian curries and more.
It’s quite unique in its offering in Morzine, especially if you’d like a change from cheese. It’s also a great takeout choice for any vegetarians or vegans in your group.
There is a small amount of seating but it’s best to order takeaway so as not to be disappointed. You can even order online!
Our recommendation: Try one of the curries - we love the Aubergine Katsu Curry.
For more information visit The Alpine Foodie's website.
After a fun-filled day on the mountain, sometimes a takeaway and a movie is all you can muster the energy for. Here comes Ô Chalet to the rescue.
Delicious homemade burgers, paninis, wraps, kebabs (yes, kebabs!) and curly fries. There’s even a kids menu so everyone’s sure to find something to their taste.
Call ahead to order - the friendly team speak good English. Or even better, send a couple of people down to order and they can enjoy a bière pression whilst the food is prepared.
Our recommendation: The chicken & bacon wrap with twister fries is seriously moreish.
For more information visit Ô Chalet's website.
Le Colibri is a fantastic all-day restaurant and is a very popular lunch spot.
Beautifully furnished and located on the main pedestrian street down from the Pleney, you can’t miss it.
The food is fresh and generous taking inspiration from French & British café culture. Think buddha bowls, salads, eggs benedict, pancakes. And the coffee’s great too.
Our recommendation: If you’re hungry go for the set brunch menu which includes coffee, juice, a savoury option, a sweet option and a mini pastry!
For more information visit Le Colibri's website.
La Cendrée is a mountain bistro located at the bottom of the Pleney slopes, right next to the ESF Club Piou Piou. For lively children with lots of energy, this place is perfect owing to the large garden overlooked by a sunny terrace.
In winter, little ones can frolic in the snow whilst waiting for food. And in summer the garden is filled with climbing frames, slides and other play equipment.
The food is traditional, homemade and hearty and the house mulled wine is not to be missed.
Our recommendation: The Savoyarde Omelette is huge and excellent.
For more information visit La Cendrée's website.
Après-ski at Le Tremplin should be on everyone’s Morzine bucket -list. This iconic venue has a terrace which steps out onto the bottom of the Pleney slopes, and is a great all round meeting point.
Le Tremplin also happens to serve up some absolutely delicious food at lunchtime, when the vibe is a little bit more civilised. There’s something for everyone from salads to pasta, tartiflette to burgers, and loads more.
Eating out on the terrace you can watch people skiing down Le Stade, and if there’s kids in your party they’ll have a great time playing in the snow.
Our recommendation: Try one of their huge salads if you’ve overindulged in fondue!
For more information visit Le Tremplin's website.
Most people will know La Bonbonnière as one of the most delicious bakeries in Morzine.
However, for those in the know, La Bonbonnière has a little hidden seating area in the back. When you enter, rather than turning right just go straight ahead and up the little steps.
Here, you can order a coffee to accompany anything from the bakery. Sweet or savoury, your choice.
Our guests staying in Apartments La Reserve or Chez Pépé will only have to cross the road to get their fix!
For more information visit La Bonbonnière's Facebook page.
Occupying a premium spot in the Tourist Office square, it’s hard to miss Coup de Coeur’s wooden carvings and sheepskin covered terrace.
Perfect for people watching, meeting friends and family, or keeping an eye on the kids whilst they hit the ice rink.
Kick back with a coffee or something stronger if you like! They even blankets for when the temperature drops (although you could just head indoors too).
For more information visit Le Coup de Coeur's Facebook page.
Located right on the Tourist Office square, Café-Bistrot le 19.38 is a great central meeting spot, right in the heart of Morzine’s shopping district.
It’s a classy little establishment and offers some great people watching opportunities from the terrace, whilst you sip on your coffee (or something stronger).
For more information visit Le 19.38 website.
