If you have the pleasure of visiting of Megeve in the summer and staying in one of it’s many luxury chalets, you will have the chance to experience many superb restaurants in Megeve. I caught up with local chalet manager, Solenn Poullain to get the low down on some of her favourites and top recommendations.
Solenn makes sure all guests in her chalets have restaurant reservations secured and that they have best tables too. She has provided us with a number of the best restaurants in Megeve, in the centre and the surrounding area that will really get our taste buds tingling.
Where would you recommend for a quick and easy meal in the centre of Megeve?
I really like “Spaggiari” it is really classic and easy. It is just next to one of the rivers that runs through Megeve. It is a family run restaurant in Megeve with the owner working there most days with other family members mucking in too. The service is very good and so are the pizzas!
Is there anywhere in particular you would go for coffee and a cake?
When it comes to a coffee shop for a spot of afternoon tea and cake there is really only one place to go. “Le Prieuré” is famous for it’s desserts and artisanal teas and coffees. The most famous dessert is the rhubarb and lemon meringue pie, it has been said that people travel far and wide for it. One story suggests a customer once came by helicopter to get the last slice.
Are there any restaurants in Megeve that have live music?
Yes, of course! The “540 Café” has live music on Friday nights during the summer which is always a big hit with locals and tourists alike. The restaurant is located at the foot of the Jaillet lift which is also at the bottom of the luge run so it works really well for families who have been enjoying a few rides. Also on Saturday nights they do a “Soireé Moules Frites” – mussels and chips to you and me! Reservation is advised for these evenings.
Where is good for an afternoon snack like tapas or pizza?
A great place that has recently opened is the “Deli’s Club“. It is right next to the Casino Barrière and serves tapas and great pizzas in a really trendy atmosphere. It looks more like a pub from the outside but serves great food inside. The cocktails are good here too!
Are there any new places that have really caught on with the locals?
“Le Hibou Blanc”, opened last winter and straight away became the place to be, for a drink, lunch or dinner with a nice terrace. Everything is top quality and always well cooked. Nice cocktails too. The first floor has a DJ every night and a bar. Really cool place. I recommend “Fondant de boeuf à la bourguignons et foie gras poêlé” in English it’s a Beef Fondant, bourguignon style with pan fried Foie Gras. A very good cocktail is “Kingston Mule” or classic “Aperol Spritz”.
Is there anywhere with a nice terrace where you can enjoy a game of Boules?
A good Italian restaurant is Le Delicium, although not the most central. It’s located in the Rochebrune area, very close to the cable car. It’s one of my favourite restaurants in Megeve. I even took Andy and Fran (the boss couple of Alps In Luxury) here for one evening last year. During summer they have a nice terrace and you can play “Pétanque” (Boules) and drink rosé!
Where would you recommend that is close to Chalet My World?
I would have to recommend Le Dandy in Combloux it’s a great place and it’s also very close to Chalet My World. It has amazing Mont Blanc views and it’s also around a “Biotope” lake giving it an almost beachy feel. They do a “Poke bowl” (nothing to do with Pokemon), it’s really good Japanese style cuisine with delicious tuna.
Where should guests stay when they come to Megeve?
If you are looking to visit Megeve over the summer or even in the winter you should definitely consider Chalet My World. Chalet My World is open year round so you can come for an alpine summer holiday or the famous skiing. Check out the winter details for the chalet here. The chalet sleeps up to 12 adults and 4 children across 7 rooms and comes with it’s own private cinema and wellness area complete with pool, hot tub, massage room, sauna and steam room. What more could one want?!
