A very traditional French dining experience - from piping hot french onion soup , through to the cheese fondue - no room for a dessert unfortunately. Service was generally attentive, pleasant and helpful. As for the fondue , after the first twelve bits of bread dipped in molten cheese , it became a bit repetitive - there is only so... More

Well I always wondered what a cheese fondue would be like. Now I know. The first couple of mouthfuls were very tasty but then cheese OD set in. Fortunately the restaurant recommends ham and salad to go with it. Well now I know. Great if you like lots of cheese. Oh and the starters were great.

great French and regional food, reasonable prices, super friendly staff and generally the perfect atmosphere for a relaxed dinner after skiing or a day in the mountains. 2 choices of vegetarian menues! Great burger and meat!

We were a party of 7 and made our booking at the last minute. Staff were welcoming and took the time to answer our questions about their menu. Food was very nice and good portion size for average eaters. We tried the basilic wine in aperitif and "la Grole" in dessert which was a fun experience. Overall good quality food... More

The restaurant was nicely decorated and the staff was friendly and smiley.The portions are really the smallest ever tasted.The salad was just 2 leafs.The meat was 2 pieces, angus, with a swallow of potatoes for 23 euros!!!!! I believe that this kind of stingy service shows no respect to the client that comes from pistes .

Fabulous food and great atmosphere. Although they didn't advise us when booking there would be 2 sittings so wasn't expecting to have to leave the table. They were very apologetic and gave us a drink on the house. Highly recommend

We have eaten in le Basilic many times over the years. However the food has taken a step up in quality since our last visit, and the service remains excellent. It is the only restaurant open in the centre of les Houches in low season, and allowed us to eat locally rather than drive into Chamonix. I had the terrine,... More

After spending a lot of time back and forth to les Houches this summer we have eaten most places and this is a cute little place which I think is family run and it shows as they seem to really care. The menu is a nice mix of local French and some other more modern cuisine. We felt very looked... More

Faced the challenge of getting the last night of holiday restaurant selection to be memorable. Checked all the on line reviews beforehand. Courses all reasonable but none of group thought any course stood out. Wine disappointing. Overall average rather than good but a significant bill. Staff pleasant.
