Megève’s mountain restaurants
Megève is well known for its amazing choice of mountain restaurants. Enjoy some of our favourites
What better way to lunch with all the family – or a group of friends – than in one of the resort’s mountain restaurants. There are lots of restaurants to choose from, to suit all budgets – from high-altitude, fine dining restaurants through to traditional Megèvan and convenient self-service. There are also snack bars and family-friendly picnic areas.
SB Ski’s in-resort team at the Hotel Chalet d’Antoine are happy to make lunch bookings for you. Please just ask at hotel reception.
Mont d’Arbois, St Gervais and St Nicholas
Chez Marie du Rosay
Another regular meeting spot for SB skiers. This is a popular self-service restaurant at reasonable prices with indoor and outdoor eating areas. When the weather is cold, there’s always a fire roaring inside. Chez Marie du Rosay is located at the foot of the Mont Joux chairlift so makes a good lunch venue, or is in a perfect spot for a quick coffee/hot chocolate break.
