Friday is chalet night off and Tim and Caroline will be happy to help make restaurant reservations in Montriond or Morzine. If you’re feeling more adventurous how about a moonlit snow-shoe followed by a fondue with a toboggan ride at the end of the night?!

There’s an excellent range of options to choose from, whether good-value pizza or topnotch dining. The choice is similar on the pistes, including places to suit all budgets with an emphasis on traditional Savoyard fare.

We will help you book the restaurant and taxi so you can enjoy your evening out.

In resort

La Rotonde
La Rotonde (££)

Opened in 2014, La Rotonde continues to please locals and visitors alike. The menu is the largest and most varied of any restaurant in town, and pizzas are a speciality.

L’Atelier
L’Atelier (£££)

In the three-star Hotel Le Samoyède, L’Atelier is in a class of its own. After working in top restaurants in Geneva and Courchevel, local chef Alexandre Baud-Pachon came home in 2004 to set up his own warm and cosy restaurant. The seven-course “Fantaisie Chablaisienne” menu costs €85. Main courses include fillet of beef or braised veal.

On the mountain

Changabang
Changabang (£)

At the top of Les Prodains cable car in Avoriaz, Changabang has arguably the best and most reasonably-priced burgers and wraps in the Portes du Soleil. It does cater for vegetarians – although the burger option is a fried egg in a bun. To find the restaurant, head down the steps at the top of the lift.

Chez Nannon
Chez Nannon (££)

With the scent of bubbling pans of melted Reblochon cheese issuing a greeting from afar, Chez Nannon is reached by either the Ravarettes or Troncs Express chairlifts in Morzine's Nyon sector. It is a classic Haute-Savoyard restaurant with cheese, potatoes and air-dried meat the main fare, but it also serves steak, burgers, and a dish of the day. The braised knuckle of ham with mustard sauce is particularly good.

La Paika
La Paika (£££)

On the blue Vorosses piste above Les Gets, La Paika is an old wooden hut that serves prawns as big as your arm, cooked on an outdoor grill along with steak and chicken. On sunny days there's dining on the terrace. The interior is warm and welcoming, and heated by a wood-burning stove – it’s the kind of place it's easy to settle into, then have to rush to catch the last lift home.
