Great spot for lunch after a testing morning on the piste! Large lively modern restaurant with good sunny dinning terrace. Tasty menu, warm welcome from lovely friendly staff. Chicken Cesar Salad was delicous with a verre de rose, my husband enjoyed the bolognaise.

After a long walk in the mountains we went to have a drink and service was very good. My 6 year old girl went back the next day for toilets and they let her use them even though she was not a actual customer at the time .

Besides Les Loges Blanches. Beats OK burger (and that's saying something as OK Burger amazing!!) But 540 Cafe is UNBELIEVABLE!! Its not cheap but NOT expensive when you see the quality and effort into quality of produce used to create the meals. Enjoy!

It's difficult to have time to worry about customer service when you are too busy chatting with the other staff - as such the service is non existent to the point that as a customer we felt that we were asking for a favour when we enquirer about ordering... To be fair the signs of how bad things were going... More

We visit the 540 fairly regularly as it has the best burgers and Ceasar salads in Megeve Also great when they have special Moules and Frites evenings The staff are always helpful and friendly and great wine for the money Highly recommended for family and groups of friends but best to book to avoid disappointment

They call the 'corner potatoes' - but they're limp and horrible. They spoil an overall brilliant place - welcoming, open most of the day and evening. Wine is lovely though hot chocolate like most places from a machine and to be avoided. The kids love it and it's convenient for the pistes and piou piou in Le Jaillet.

Menu enfant at a reasonable price (usual nuggets/steak hache/ frites and an ice cream offering with extra goodies.kids loved it. Parents would have liked to see a... More

We were seated outside quickly and were then made to wait 20 minutes before we were given a menu. When we came to order we were cordially told the afternoon menu had begun (which is very limited and runs from 2.30 till 3.30). Had we been served quicker then we would have had the full menu to choose from. The... More
