Whether it’s your chalet host’s night off, you’re taking a night off cooking, or the main purpose of your “skiing” holiday is, let’s face it, just all about food – here is our quick guide to eating out in Méribel.
Best Restaurants in Méribel
Our picks for a lovely evening out
If meat is your game, and good meat at that, look no further than Chez Kiki in Morel. Whilst just out of Méribel centre it is easily accessible via the free bus. The cosy indoor setting is set around an open fire upon which the various meats on offer are cooked. They also have a petit Kiki menu, perfect for smaller tummies.
Finish off a days skiing with good wine, escargot and a cote de boeuf! Fish options are also available but isn’t the most suitable place for the vegetarians among us.
Raclette? Fondue? Vacherin? Basically cheese. And lots of it. By far the most popular thing to do en France!! If you’re wanting to get involved in this delectable pass time whist out in Meribel where best to do it than La Fromagerie?
There’s little else going on on the menu so go being prepared for cheese. From the smell as soon as you open the door to the smell of your coat the morning after, there’s bottomless potatoes and bread and all the cheese you can eat – there’s little more explanation needed. Situated in Meribel centre you’ll certainly be able to satisfy all cheesy needs.
If heading out for a family meal and you just don’t seem to be able to agree then the Flambee is well worth a visit. From meat and daily specials to pizza and raclette it will easily satisfy the differing taste buds within the group. With cosy classical Savoyard decor it’s a firm favourite!
If you’re after a little bit more theatre then the Clos Bernard is the place for you. Situated up near the Altiport nestled amongst the trees the picturesque setting is ‘postcard worthy’. Predominantly open for lunch, once a week they host a themed evening with dancing, candles, flaming torches and vin chaud. With an extensive and varied menu you’re sure to find to something to suit. Not for those wanting cheap grub but definitely a lasting memory.
If you’re after burgers and chips La Taverne is great for casual eats in a happening atmosphere. Scott’s bar, just opposite, serves a variety of burgers with a special 2-for-1 offer every Monday! Just further down the road the newly refurbished barometer with bar food, pizzas and restaurant.
If you want an evening of après then head to Jacks for a pizza with some live music thrown in too. With live music every après Jack’s Bar serves pizza to order along with burgers and nachos to fill you up too. What’s not to like…
Outside of Méribel
If you’re staying outside of Méribel centre or just fancy eating somewhere different for a change in Meribel Village you’ll find La Terrasse situated underneath the Lodge du Village and Le Bo a Mil nestled behind. With classic Savoyard dishes and pizza this cosy quaint restaurant is perfect for those staying in Village and is just a short bus journey from Meribel centre.
Further down the hill in Les Allues is the Tsaretta with both a bar menu and restaurant depending on your mood with a pub type setting on the ground floor and a restaurant above. Definitely a good setting if you want a casual eat with a pint in hand – if you’re feeling slightly more spicy the Tsarette opened its sister restaurant ‘Tsaretta Spice’ last year situated up in morel serving Indian food with a difference. Just next to the bus stop in Les Allues you will also find the restaurant L’Arbe for a quieter and more cosy setting with excellently priced food!
Remember, skiing all day is hard work. Eating lots is allowed!
