Mountain Restaurants - Our selection of stops when you are skiing
Meribel Valley

Adray Télébar - (next to the bottom of the Adret chair) has a superb sun terrace, top-class traditional food and service. Get the veal with mushrooms, fantastic..must book +33 47 908 6026

Chalet Tonia - top of the Combes chair and ski to the right, off the beaten track, a peaceful, attractive mountain restaurant with large terrace.

Clos Bernard - Great food and if you book an earlier lunch service is quicker. Can be pricy if you stray off the daily menu ;) Follow the signs right by the Loze lift. It's a random journey through the trees and it will feel like you are in the wrong place, but it's well signed and you'll get there eventually. Less well signed heading back, but you end up on the run into Meribel Villiage

Lodge du Village - Meribel village at the bottom of the Golf chair. Very nice Italian food lively apres.

Les Castors - at the foot of the Truite run is an old favourite, try the pasta in copper pan +33 479 08 52 79. There is also a very good cheap takeaway sandwich bar next door.

Le Roc Tania - at the top of the Loze chair, lovely slightly up market restaurant with good food, incredible views from the fabulous sun terrace and an interesting launch pad for para gliders +33 479 08 32 34
