Stopped for lunch at this fantastic setting. 2 level terrace in the sun. The place was packed and probably the main reason lunch was very long. However there did seem to be a lack of organization...That said the service was friendly and we were made to feel welcome. The food was tasty enough, but a little bit pricy for what... More

This restaurant is ridiculously expensive. €25 for a bowl of soup and €8 for a soft drink. There is no ambience. The aim of this restaurant is to push as many people through in the shortest possible time. The tables are ludicrously close together which is difficult when you are wearing ski gear. My husband was very sick after eating... More

Truly special location. I don't think one can ever be tired of looking at the Mont Blanc. With a glass of Champagne in your hand at the same time, it would be difficult not to enjoy the moment... A very professional run establishment which is very sought after by residents and tourists alike. If in Megeve - book for at... More

L'Ideal is a Megeve institution . Great atmosphere and good food. Staff have always been most accommodating. Terrace is a must on a Sunny day.

We stumbled across this place after skiing past our chosen destination and returning to the peak in search of food. We were after something light as we had reservation at (coincidentally) it's sister restaurant in the evening (1920 which is phenomenal). It became apparent very quickly this was a proper restaurant and a stunning one at that, interior design as... More

Great place to ski up to and have lunch, with a fantastic view from the terrace. The food was good: duck magret hamburger and truffle macaroni & cheese, although quite expensive. On the days the weather is bad, the indoor room is very cosy.

We visit every year and are never disappointed. The service is prompt and courteous and the menu offers well presented local specialities as well as great steaks.
