It is well known that the 3 Valleys can be an expensive area to wine and dine. We have put together some of our top recommendations of restaurants that offer fantastic food and drink options at a much more reasonable price point. Particularly when travelling in families or large groups, it is good to know places to go that offer both value and quality.

If you have booked lessons with Maison Sport, our instructors are also experts on the local restaurants so don’t hesitate to ask for further recommendations from them. Do also bear in mind that restaurants can get booked up quickly in peak periods so try to ring ahead and book if you can.


Best location in the centre of town!

Polar Cafe, Courchevel 1850.

The Polar Cafe is right in the centre of Courchevel 1850 and benefits from being next to the primary meeting point for instructors in the Croisette. This is perfect for a quick pit stop to get refuelled and straight back to the slopes. You will be able to choose from a selection of freshly prepared dishes at the counter including delicious soups, salads, homemade lasagne and tasty sandwiches. They do not take reservations, however it is more of a grab and go spot so you should be able to find yourself a table relatively quickly. Hot items will be brought to the table, and drinks and items from the counter are self-serve. Warm up, enjoy a casual quick bite to eat and get back on the slopes in a flash, all for less than €20!

Best for hungry skiers!

L’Adrey Telebar, Meribel.

L’Adrey is a popular spot as its location is just off the side of the Doron piste and offers a lovely sun terrace. Their specialty dish is a delicious veal escalope with mushroom sauce which you will see almost everyone in the restaurant ordering! The reason being is that they offer seconds (and thirds!) at no extra cost. Perfect for when you are feeling extra hungry after a tough day on the slopes. The prices here are slightly higher than some of the other options on our list but you can’t beat it for delicious food and great portion sizes!
