“Les Gets is not traditionally a party town but there is a lively little cluster of bars all located next to each other in the centre of town (opposite Bar Bowling - two bowling lanes and beers) all are easy ski-boot walking distance from the pistes of Mont Chèry or Chavannes. The Irish Pub has been open for over 20 years and has its own microbrewery creating a small selection of well crafted local beers that are very popular. The Black Bear is the french take on a Canadian Bar and can be lively and excitable and Barbylone is tiny but perfectly formed and incredibly popular with food, outdoor seating, live sports and good music. Wander freely between the three.”

“Le Vaffieu is a traditional Savoyard style chalet-restaurant located walking or skiing distance from the top of the Pleney cable car. With an interior dining area full of traditional exposed wooden beams and alpine paraphernalia, and a large heated indoor / outdoor terrace, you would be forgiven for turning up without a reservation. But this sunny mountain restaurant is a favourite for locals and tourists alike. The delicious regional fare is perfect after a morning skiing, as is the fine red wine. Their 'croûte' is the best on the mountain but if cheese is not your thing then their Lamb Cutlets are amazing as is the Seabass.”

“La Péla is one of the most popular restaurants in Les Gets and is set in an old Savoyard farm in the centre of the village. With an authentic yet modern alpine interior and a wonderful warm atmosphere the restaurant offers a fine selection of traditional Savoyard cuisine. A Péla, the word, is actually a traditional word for tartiflette and there several variations of it on the menu. There are also Savoyard cheese and meat dishes and a selection of fish dishes such as their ‘Le filet St. Pierre’. Ask for a table close to the open fire and always leave space for dessert - their Café Gourmand never fails to disappoint!”

“La Biskatcha is a brasserie and grill in the centre of Les Gets making up one of the three restaurants in the La Marmotte chalet-hotel. The Hotel itself has been part of the Mirigay Family since 1947, welcoming guests from all over the world, and La Biskatcha is the Mirigay family’s dining alternative to the many regional Savoyard menus in town. The restaurant, along with the adjoining tapas bar, L’Anka, boasts colourful and casual décor and serves up traditional, high-quality dishes such as grilled meats and tapas, and more exotic options, many of which are cooked on their authentic wood-fired barbecue.”

“La Paika is without question one of the best and most popular restaurants in the entire region. It features heavily in any resort guide, or press review. Come winter or summer, for incredible mountain dining, drinks, mountain BBQs, the best views, you name it, they do it and they are the best. But we can’t even get past the front door. Because inside there is a cake display, two tables worth of the freshest most delicious cakes, homemade, fresh baked, cakes of every kind, everywhere. If you can get past them and look at the menu inside, you will enjoy the most wonderful mountain feast. We have never got further than an espresso and a huge slice of cake while sitting on the sunny terrace. ”

“At the far end of Les Gets (very close to our chalet Ferme de Moudon) sits La Fruitière des Perrières. This is the local restaurant attached to the local Fromagerie (cheese maker) and it is a must visit in the day to watch the local cheese making process and sample local cheeses. But in the evening, you can experience their produce in a very authentic setting. On arrival you are seated at a communal dining table by an open fire and presented with an aperitif, Le Marquisette (white rum, grenadine, white wine, oranges and lemons). The menu, focusing around local produce, offers soups, stews and of course, incredible fondues.”

“Les Notes Gourmandes, come winter, come summer, has the best people watching location in Les Gets village. In the centre of town with views up the mountain, from 8.30am you can enjoy coffee on the sunny terrace and watch the world go by. Better still, it’s located across from the village square so in winter it is the perfect place to watch families and children play on the ice rink. In summer there are numerous activities such as a kids cycle track. For afternoons there are cocktails and lots of crepes to choose from so this is a great central village stop off and a wonderful morning suntrap. ”
