Megève is a gourmet paradise – this is a resort that takes its food very seriously so you will find excellent restaurants both on and off the mountain. The resort has several Michelin-star restaurants including the 3* Flocons de Sel and the 2*1920 but you’ll also find some excellent more casual options including Flocons Village which is the sister restaurant to the Flocons de Sel. Or try great cocktails and pizza at Spaggiari or local specialties such as raclette at Le Vieux Megève.
On the mountain the choice is just as good – if you’re looking for a special, celebratory lunch then head for the Ideal 1850 on Mont d’Arbois, an elegant restaurant that is part of the Rothchild’s estate. Or head for the village of St Nicolas de Veroce and stop for lunch at the traditional Le Coin du Feu. There is a branch of the Folie Douce in Megève and if you’re looking for a lively atmosphere and good food it is the place to be. As ever the recommendation is to go for a late lunch and then you have a seat to enjoy the legendary cabaret.
Megève center is a lovely place for a pre-dinner stroll and aperitif and the resort is home to the oldest jazz club outside of Paris in France (Le Club de Jazz). You’ll find some great bars in the streets around the church square.
