Traditional Alpine Resort Catherine Hughes, Product Manager

"Samoëns is a very pretty French village with lots of restaurants, bars and shops, much more than your average ski resort. It is a great base from which to explore the huge Grand Massif ski area and the short transfer from Geneva as well as a beautiful choice of accommodation make Samoëns a popular choice."

Dining in Samoens

Quality dining is the order of the day in Samoëns. The two dozen locally owned and run restaurants each take pride in the quality of their food, using locally sourced ingredients, abd offer friendly service.

Most serve a mixture of local French mountain cuisine including local variations on the traditional favourites like fondue, as well as international meals.

For delicious Savoyard specialities and pizzas, we thoroughly recommend the authentic, chalet-style Le Sérac. Tables here are very in-demand so booking in advance is a must! 

The Louisiane is also popular, particularly when it comes to pizzas and Le Monde à l'Envers has a good varied menu. La Table de Fifine is highly regarded for its high calibre cuisine. The Hotel Neige et Roc's restaurant is also a great choice for dinner. 8 M des Monts is a more recent addition to the culinary offerings in Samoëns and the small, frequently changing menu incorporating as many locally sourced ingredients as possible is a great choice if you're looking for a refreshing change from typical Savoyard food. Kids are welcome and advance booking is highly recommended.

If you're looking to eat out on the mountains, both Le Luge à Téran and Le Chalet d'Clair are excellent choices which serve great food in an idyllic location, although a reservation is essential for Le Luge à Téran.
