Eat, drink, sleep

Eat: Budget

For top-quality fast food in a stylish venue Mamma’s is the place to go.

All meals are priced £8 and diners can choose from a huge selection, including pizzas, pasta, wraps, Pad Thai, curries or fish and chips to eat in or takeaway.

Eat: Midrange

L’Etale is the busiest restaurant in town. The range of food is extensive and good value.

The pièce de résistance is the potence, or hanging beef – juicy chunks of steak, roasted on metal spikes and flambéed with a slosh of whisky. Mains from £10. (Route du Téléphérique, 74110 Morzine)

Eat: Luxury

L’Atelier has a reputation as the best restaurant in Morzine.

Chow down on the chef’s take on Savoyade classics to Asian-inspired meats and fish. 

Splash out and book the taster menu – £55pp – where you’ll indulge in a highly recommended selection of this diverse cuisine. (9 Place de l’Office du Tourisme, 74110 Morzine) 

Drink: Budget

Bar Robinson is a lively little French bar run by two old ladies and a gentleman (all over 70) and only serves one beer – the locally brewed Mutzig, which is cheap and super strong.

The bar shuts at 8pm as the elderly owners like an early night. Demi pints about £2.20.  (62 Rue du Bourg, 74110 Morzine)

Drink: Midrange

For a great après-ski hangout with a roaring fire, a good selection of beers and large screens showing all major UK sporting events, head to Dixie Bar.

Be sure to check if the Irish band are playing as they whip everyone into a table-dancing frenzy.

Demi pints about £2.20. (18 Rue du Bourg, 74110 Morzine)

Drink: Luxury

Upstairs is a top restaurant, but downstairs in La Chaudanne’s, in the unique setting of a vaulted cellar, is where visitors can chomp on tasty tapas-style nibbles while sampling some of the wines in this cosy, chalet-style building.

Demi pints about £2.20.

Sleep: Budget

La Kinkerne is a lovely little family-run B&B with an awesome location at the bottom of the Prodains lift.

Prices start from £733pw for a double on a room-only basis. (40 place des Dromonts, 74110 Avoriaz)
