Le Chaudron Restaurant, Montchavin

Excellent, reasonably priced, Savoyard restaurant loved by the locals

Featured in:

This charming traditional mountain restaurant offers all the local specialities including fondue, raclette, tartiflette and Pierre Chaude. 

Situated within the Hotel Bellecote, this wonderful restaurant offers quality cuisine with large portions alongside a first-class service. It is very popular with the locals and not a place you'll find crammed with tourists.

The interior has been decorated in a traditional style and completely fitted out in wood to create a cosy mountain atmosphere. 

Along with local specialities, the menu also includes a number of other options from oysters to wild boar casserole to burgers. There is also a special 'little chef' two-course menu for children with options such as chicken nuggets, fish fingers, beef burger and tartiflette followed by ice cream or yoghurt. 

The restaurant is open daily for dinner from 19:00.


Visitor comments

  • "Loved the service, copious amount of food and tasty fondues. Tried all restaurants in Montchavin for lunch and this one was the best value for money, ambience and tasty regional treats. The Genepi at the end topped the experience and was happy to come back pretty much everyday to try the next best thing on the menu. Lovely cosy atmosphere with open fire and terrace on a sunny day was perfect to take in some sun and watch the skiers descend the slopes. Much recommended." - Trip Advisor
  • "A hidden restaurant not frequented by tourists. Very good reception, we ate very well and were not at all disappointed. We will definitely go back to eat here. We've never seen a free menu for children under 6 years! A true Savoyard restaurant with fresh tartiflette, not frozen like many other..." - Trip Advisor (Translated from French)
  • "The hospitality was excellent and the setting is lovely. The fondue was perfect, nothing compares to it from what is generally available in the ski resorts. The service was amazing, the cured meats were perfectly fresh. The hot stone is beautifully presented with very good quality meat. Dishes are generous." ​- Trip Advisor (Translated from French)
