L'Adret de la Flegere Restaurant, Flegere

Mountain restaurant at the top of the Flegere gondola at 1913m

You have the choice of 2 dining options when you arrive at the top of the Flegere cable car, the sit-down l'Adret de la Flégère restaurant or the Foehn Trend takeaway.

The only waitress service restaurant in Flegere, the Adret restaurant was opened in 2011 to replace the self-service restaurant. They serve traditional, hearty Savoyard style dishes such as pierrade, fondue, sirloin steaks, la Croûte, la Pierrade, and the unforgettable wild blackcurrant tart. They have been awarded the title 'Maitre Restaurateur', to recognize that the food is home made from fresh ingredients.

It has both a modern and traditional atmosphere, the dining room is light despite the decoration of exposed stones and wooden beams which give it a unique ambience. The south facing terrace and its huge bay windows provides the diner with amazing views of the Mont Blanc mountain range.

Open daily in winter from 11.45. Head round to the left of the main gondola building towards the Index chairlift, and you'll find it on your left.

Booking is recommended for the main restaurant in peak season.

Visitor comments

  • "Great late lunch after a full morning of skiing. Staff were really friendly, service very prompt. All the food was good particularly the steaks and duck. Desserts were really good too." - Trip Advisor
  • "After a morning skiing in the sun, we met our daughter and her boyfriend for lunch at L'adret. A very memorable lunch on the sun deck followed. Sunny, no wind, great french food, a beautiful view and a couple of glasses of wine. This is the way to ski. In all honesty, I don't really remember the food - just the delightfulness of the occasion." - Trip Advisor
