We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - wish it could have been longer! The service, food, ambiance and guest room appointments were all excellent. We were lucky enough to squeeze in a spa appointment (massage). We felt that some improvements could be made in this area (using local mountain oils/creams etc) as well as more luxurious massage bed towels/blankets. We would... More

An amazing experience - full stop. From being picked up at our chalet to being greeted like royalty. A fantastic setting, 5* service all round. We chose the '5 surprises' option which, when you added in the chef's surprises in between the surprises made for another 3 or 4 courses. There were so many taste bud first time experiences that...

We have tried the chef's 5 course tasting menu. Interesting food combinations to enjoy savoyard dishes trendly cooked. We made the choice of a local red wine and were disappointed (the wine list is very rich). As one would expect from a 3 star Michelin, the service is excellent.

I just love this place, the food is absolutely delicious, service professional and welcoming,position is absolutely excellent. There is a new decking area which wihile spacious was not quite so intimate and atmospheric as the old courtyard area but fantastic views. Perhaps some sculpture or dressing may assist ?

La Bouitte did not disappoint at all! At every point in our visit we were absolutely astounded by the quality, professionalism and inventiveness of all involved in our visit. From pre lunch drinks on the deck on arrival, to the kitchen giving us a leaving present of a pastry so that we could extend our eating pleasures and memories even... More

We stayed there for four days during the ski season. The staff really could not try harder and we have stayed at a lot of 'Relais & Chateau' over the years. I was down with a bug and I was with a fourteen year old (so not the ideal age for Michellin Three Star) so we did not eat at... More

Delightful situation in hamlet near St Martin - shuttle service available. Staff assiduous, and charming, mostly speaking English. Father and son chefs are a longstanding partnership building up to their 3 well deserved stars over many years. We had the Three Surprises menu - with pre-course delicacies, post-course delicacies, end of meal delicacies, this was a very substantial lunch, and... More

Much better than the last couple of times I've been, where they have struggled with larger tables, 8 and 12. Just feel that the convivial Savoyarde atmosphere they try to create with the decor doesn't go with the stilted, robotic staff. I'm afraid I found the sommelier a little arrogant also. Is €400 per head too much, even for 3... More

The chef comes around often to check on guests. The traditional recipes mixed in with a typical Savoie ambiance make for a wonderful evening. The staff gets an A+, the food is definitely worth the drive through French vacation traffic...

A fantastic venue for that special long ski lunch. All dishes have a Savoyard twist and are made from locally source ingredients. The Tartiflette air was spectacular, the Caviar with Cauliflower snow even better. A main course of pigeon breast was cooked to perfection and the sommelier matched all of our six courses to perfection.
