Eating in Courchevel Resort
We know how important refuelling is on a ski holiday and Courchevel does not disappoint on the gastronomy front. Courchevel isn’t all about the skiing they have some fantastic restaurants serving a variety of dishes; from traditional Savoyard classics through pizzas, there is something to suit most tastes. These remarkable restaurants range from the affordable to the exceedingly expensive!
We have taken the time to list all the restaurants both on and off the mountain that we think are worth paying a visit, many of which we have had the pleasure of eating in.
Unique cooking experience – all food cooked on a wood burning fire
L’Oeil en Boeuf + 33 (0) 479 082210 1550
For many, the reason why they return to Courchevel 1550 year on year, this tiny little 200 year old hut with just 8 tables inside downstairs and about the same again in a recent extension upstairs, serves all kinds of stuff….as long as it can be cooked over the open fire at the end of the room. There’s no choice of vegetable, just potatoes & onions baked in the embers of the fire. It’s not cheap with Chateaubriand at something north of €65 for two people at the high end of the main courses but it is always very good. Expect to pay around €55 a head for dinner incl. a bottle of local wine & the odd dessert or coffee. Definitely a must restaurant for meat lovers and with a sun terrace it makes for a great skiers lunch spot! Located just by the Tovets Chairlift.
