Restaurants on the Mountain in Sainte Foy:
Open for lunch, this is one our favourite places to eat in Sainte Foy. With its ski-in access and amazing valley views, it’s the perfect spot to stop for lunch or a restorative vin chaud on the mountain. With indoor seating and a large outside terrace, there is also a snack bar for a quick panini or portion of fries if you’re in a rush.
Watch skiers and boarders descend the slopes from the sunny terrace over a cold drink, or share a table in the traditional interior surrounded by ancient wooden beams and exposed local stone. Omelettes, plat de jour, and regional dishes are all available…their homemade ravioli is also the stuff of legend!
At the top of the first chairlift beside Les Brevettes, Chez Leon is open during summer and winter, and serves Savoyard specialities. Booking is recommended.
Newly opened for 2019/2020 season, this restaurant, micro-brewery and coffee house is situated at the bottom of the green Plan Bois piste, or the top end of the resort, depending on the direction you’re travelling. A family run business where the son is a trained Barista (hence the amazing coffee), and the beers are unique! Try Slippery Slope or Powder Hound. The restaurant offers a good selection for all diets (incl. vegan & celiac), but my eye would be on their in-house smoked fish and meats. Definitely worth a visit at some time in your stay.
Restaurants in Sainte Foy Resort:
A newer addition to the Sainte Foy scene, Le W is open for lunch and dinner, serving modern cuisine, with dishes prepared in-house from local produce. The contemporary dining area is spread over 2 floors and their whole menu is available for you to take away. Steak tartare, burgers topped with delicious local cheeses and tiramisu make a regular appearance on the menu.
Owner Maurice and his team offer a great selection of Savoyard classics including tartiflette, raclette and fondue, with daily specials too. Their extensive menu has something for everyone, and there is always a warm welcome! Under new management since winter 18/19.
La Maison à Colonnes
A cracking spot for soaking up the afternoon rays, with its sun loungers and large outside terrace. Set in an ancient farmhouse right beside the chairlift, they specialise in traditional cooking. Regional classics like pierrade, fondue and chapeau (another classic local sharing dish involving slices of meat hooked onto a heated cast iron conical ‘hat’ in the middle of the table). Great salads and lasagne are amongst the highlights on their lunch menu.
Le Saint Germain
If you’re into fondue and wine (and let’s face it…who isn’t?!) then this is the place for you. You can choose from a wide selection of wines by the glass or bottle, or take a seat and tuck into some local tapas. Take away options are also available.
Yeti Boots Café
With a terrace overlooking the nursery slopes as well as indoor seating in the bar, Yeti Boots is a popular choice with families. Their burgers are undoubtedly the highlight of their light lunch/snack menu. Served in takeaway boxes they’re the perfect way for you to refuel after a day on the slopes.
just off the side of the Savonette piste, Eden’s Kitchen boasts a large outdoor terrace with views of the valley. When the sun comes out, so does the outdoor BBQ! The kitchen serves a range of modern European dishes.
Opposite our Première Neige reception, the bistro style menu at L’Après focuses mainly on pizzas and burgers. Takeaway options are available too. Grab a drink on the terrace looking across to Mont Pourri while you wait!
Situated right next door to L’Après, L’à Coeur offers you a fine-dining approach to French and Savoyard cooking. Menu staples including côte de boeuf (to share) are served within a cosy setting.
Restaurants around Sainte Foy:
Located in Sainte Foy Chef Lieu (a few km’s down the mountain), there has been a hotel on this site since 1888! Today, as well as a friendly bar, you can enjoy the choice of restaurant, bistro, or wine cave offering private tastings. With the free shuttle bus stopping right outside, this is a popular lunch stop if you’ve just tackled the Col de Granier off-piste route.
A short transfer or taxi ride from Sainte Foy, in the charming hamlet of Le Miroir. Set within the rustic setting of a 17th century chalet, this is something of a local institution. You can enjoy aperitifs served in front of a roaring log fire while you browse the menu and extensive wine list. The menu focuses on meat grilled on the open fire, and other seasonal specialities. Visitors in the summer can enjoy a relaxing afternoon by the outdoor pool.
