Gastronomy / The Alps

The top Michelin-starred restaurants in the Alps

Fondue, raclette, tartiflette, blueberry tart, gâteau de Savoie, crozets, génépi… the Alps are well known for their rich comfort food. But what about the region’s Michelin-starred restaurants?

There’s a broad menu of modern and refined local gastronomy that goes beyond this delicious range of local favourites, hence why 40 of the area’s restaurants have been awarded Michelin stars!

Jean Sulpice in Annecy, Emmanuel Renaud and Anne-Sophie Pic in Megève and Marc Veyrat in Manigod are just some of the gastronomic superstars who are based in the area.

Whether you are eating with family, friends or there’s just the two of you, you are sure to find a restaurant that will tickle your tastebuds!

Each dish will take you for a walk in the mountains, from the lakes to the peaks – souffle with gentian, langoustines marinated in lemon, venison with blackberry and pine, ice cream with Alpine milk, fish from the lake or Jerusalem artichokes flavoured with clove broth and truffle are among the delights to be savoured.

Simplicity and nature are also reflected in the decor of the dining room, with its wood, natural materials and large windows making the most of the mountain views, and in the warm welcome from Kristine Renaut and her team.

Address: 90 rue des Chenus, Courchevel 1850, Courchevel, 73120
Prices: €€€€, expect to pay 220€ minimum for an adult menu

Le Chabichou, run by chef Stéphane Buron, has retained its two Michelin stars for 30 years, thanks to its inventive, modern and refined cuisine.

“My cooking reflects my childhood memories – a heritage of smells, flavours, produce and suppliers who give me their best every day. There can be no good cooking without good produce. It’s a sharing, a trust that I have had with them for many years, that I pass on to you in a world of emotion and memories. Thanks to them, I can create a menu that is an experience, as the days and seasons pass…”

Stéphane Buron

In short, seasonal cuisine, local products and an imagination brimming with creativity!

His unique menu can be enjoyed as five or nine dishes, including venison in a pastry crust with a forest fruit vinegar sorbet, scallops marinated in fermented rice with a clementine sea urchin condiment and a mikan (Japanese clementine) sorbet, and a black forest gateau with pear.

★★ Le Montgomerie,  Courchevel

Address: K2 Altitude, 356 route de l’Altiport, Courchevel, 73120
Prices: €€€€, expect to pay 250€ minimum for an adult menu

This Michelin-starred restaurant with three Toques Blanches bucks the trend of French gastronomy, which often dictates that animal products are more important than vegetables.

Chef and nature lover Pieter Riedijk has chosen to reverse this trend, by putting plants at the heart of his dishes. Salsify, chard or beetroot become the heroes of his creations, while fish and game take a back seat, playing the role of condiment.

Particular attention is paid to the sauces, which further enhance these vegetable dishes. These include a jus of fermented ceps, a sparkling beurre blanc with dill and a chicken and salsify jus with whisky.

★★ Le Sarkara, Courchevel

Address: K2 Palace, 238 rue des Clarines, Courchevel, 73120
Prices: €€€€, expect to pay 250€ minimum for an adult menu

Chef-pâtissier Sébastien Vauxion invites you to enjoy a unique experience at this two-starred establishment.

Le Sarkara is unlike any other restaurant, as the chef has decided to break with tradition in his menu, which offers only sweet creations. Vegetables, meats and cheeses are skilfully combined with sweet flavours such as chocolate, fruits and sorbets in this contemporary take.

Every dish is a surprising culinary journey – a sensory discovery of disconcerting flavours and textures and unusual combinations.

It’s an experience that turns fine dining on its head…
