Where to eat in Morzine
Best for Pizza – L’Improviste
There are tonnes of places to grab a good pizza in Morzine but if you want the best pizza in Morzine then L’improviste is a great choice. This homely restaurant makes authentic pizzas with an amazing variety of toppings.
Of course, they have the crowd pleasers such as margherita and pepperoni but they also serve carbonara pizza and montagnarde pizza with reblochon and lardons. There’s even a vegan pizza on the menu. They also stock a delicious range of wines.
Best for fun street food and light bites – The HAKA
Right in the centre of Morzine is the Haka Bar, a firm favourite for light bites with a twist. After a full day skiing or mountain biking on the mountain everyone will be tired and hungry, and the Haka Bar is a great place to stop and refuel.
Their street food menu is full of great food options including Asian ribs and Lebanese falafels. For kids there’s a great selection of burgers, chicken bites and even a mocktail option.
Best for Asian food – The Hideout
Tucked up a steep hill behind the town hall is the Hideout Hostel and Restaurant. The Hideout’s menu takes inspiration from Asian street food, and you’ll find everything from delicious Nasi Goring to udon noodles, which are the ideal food for filling you up on the mountain.
The Hideout also serves up delicious soul food from its Cafe Chaud food truck. Enjoy Southern fried chicken and amazing homemade burgers. Vegan options are also available. If you want to load the kids up on yummy veggies, then the Hideouts edamame beans and sesame broccoli win first place.
Best for unique location – La Crapahute
If you want to work for your lunch, then take a hike up Vallée de la Manche to the mountain restaurant of La Crapahute. It’s a good half-hour hike up a gentle groomed back country trail, best enjoyed on a sunny day. Make sure you bring your sledges with you too as La Crapahute has the best sledge run in town. The restaurant is recently under new management and Lola, the owner, has introduced private dining cabins complete with log fires.
The food is good quality Savoyard and although there’s not an extensive kids menu, they can cater for special events. You do need to book in advance for evening meals.
Best for Grab and Go – La Bonbonniere
We love a grab and go option, and La Bonbonnière is a great spot for picking up both sweet treats and savoury snacks. This bakery serves delicious cakes, pastries, and speciality breads. We love their lardon and cheese bread. They also served filled baguettes and quiche, for a quick fix of packed lunch.
There is also a small seating area if you want to eat in. La Bonbonnière also serves delicious desserts and cakes. The bakery is just a short walk from the tourist office in the centre of town.
Best for Authentic Savoyard – La Grange
Morzine is in the heart of the Savoyard region of France so you must try some of the local specialities while you’re here. This means melted local cheese, cured meats, potatoes, and locally sourced trout.
One of our favourite restaurants for enjoying traditional Savoyard dishes is La Grange. Run by a delightful couple the restaurant is cosy and full of character. Plus, La Grange offers kids portions of all the local delicacies, so if you have adventurous eaters this is the ideal place to experience the local cuisine. We love the fun of sharing a fondue as a family.
Make sure to book well in advance if you’re visiting during peak seasons.
Best for Sunday Roasts – L’Aubergade
Sunday is a day for going slow and enjoying a perfectly cooked roast lunch and our favourite spot to do this is at L’Aubergade. Not only do they serve a delicious roast dinner, but L’Aubergade has a designated sledging run meaning your kids can run free on the mountain and you can keep a close eye on them.
The outside seating area still gets the sun until about 2pm which makes it perfect for some fresh alfresco dining. If your kids are not into roasts there are also chicken nuggets, burgers, and pasta on the menu – Voila!
Best for Burgers and Fast Food – O Chalet
The best place for a fast-food fix is definitely O Chalet. Located in the heart of town, this is the perfect place to come for tasty burgers, amazing curly fries and excellent crepes – both sweet and savoury. If you are the healthy one in your family then fear not, O Chalet also has yummy falafels on the menu as well as salads.
Best for Tapas – Coup de Coeur
Right next to the tourist information centre and opposite the outdoor ice rink is the Coup de Coeur. This bar and restaurant enjoys a cosy interior and a lovely terrace that has heating and blankets during the winter months.
It’s a fun place to come thanks to the decor, which includes wooden sculptures for kids to look at as well as wooden blocks for the little ones to play with. Their tapas plates are a good option for sharing with the family.
Best for Little Kids – Les Aigles du Leman, Pointe de Nyon
For something a little bit different, take the Nyon cable car up to this fantastic restaurant at the top of the lift. Every day at 12pm there is a bird of prey display, which will fascinate kids. Order a hot choc on the slopes whilst watching these magnificent birds. The restaurant also has an indoor play area with a ball pit, ideal for babies and toddlers.
The food is traditional mountain fare of sausages, frites, hams and tartiflette (baked sliced potatoes, garlic, onion, cream, cheese, and bacon). To access the restaurant, you will need to pay to take the cable car.
Best new restaurant – Hotel du Lac, Montriond
The Lac du Montriond is one of the most stunning landmarks in the Portes du Soleil area. Located on the lake edge, next to the kids’ park, Hotel du Lac opened in 2021 and has already made a great name for itself. It enjoys a lovely terrace, which is the perfect place for fine dining outdoors during the warmer months.
All meals are ethically sourced and available as vegetarian alternatives. There is also a seven-course taster menu for those looking for something more.
Best for a great wine selection – La Chaudanne Wine Bar & Restaurant
La Chaudanne has been in Morzine for a long time. It first opened its doors in 1979 but the property was completely renovated in 2010 and now includes the original restaurant plus an additional wine bar. This is the place to come for good Savoyard food and great wine. They have an extensive wine list and a sommelier on hand to help guide you along.
There’s a kid’s menu for 10 euros, with options of pork ribs, chicken, fish fillet or baked lasagne followed by a brownie or ice cream for dessert.
Best for a family-run favourite – Chez Nannon
Out towards the Lac de Nyon on the Nyon plateau is Chez Nannon, an Aplage chalet belonging to The Baud Family. Situated at 1537, this popular Savoyard restaurant is the perfect place for lunch and good value too.
Specialities include their renowned “Patates au Reblochon” (potatoes served with reblochon cheese). Other options include wood-fired grilled meats, burgers, local dishes, and homemade desserts. The restaurant is popular, so booking is advised.
Best for a wide variety – La Rotonde
La Rotonde is a popular restaurant in Morzine. They’re well-known for their pizzas, but the rest of the – very varied – menu is just as tasty. Here you can choose to enjoy everything from a Beef Thai salad or Tuna Poke Bowl to frogs legs or tagliatelle with prawns.
Savoyard specialities are also available. The emphasis is on seasonal local produce. They have a great three course kids menu and an incredible sundae menu!
Best for access to the slopes – Le Tremplin
Located at the foot of the Pleney slope and next door to the ESF Ski School, Le Tremplin is a great spot for a pre- or post-ski lesson hot chocolate (it’s also where you’ll spot many a ski monitor fuelling up with coffee before the days’ lesson begin!).
Their restaurant menu includes soups and salads as well as grilled meats, pastas, fish, and Savoyard specialities, as well as dishes from around the world (think Thai curries, Mexican enchiladas, and Salmon chirashi). For kids there is a varied menu too.
Le Tremplin is also a good option during the summer months thanks to its large garden where they often put a bouncy castle.
Best for Mountain Fuel – Le Telebenne
This locally owned mountain restaurant is charming. It’s the perfect place to stop for a good value quick bite in between gentle blue and green pistes. We love the pirate flags which decorate the kids play area.
The chef serves delicious hot chocolates for the kids and vin chaud for the adults. There is a brilliant kids menu as well as tasty filling salads for the parents.
Access the Telebenne by taking the Super Morzine Gondola followed by the Zore chair lift. The restaurant is located just below the top of the Zore chairlift.
