Le Refuge Restaurant, Chamonix Les Praz

Great value dining in the quiet village of Les Praz

Featured in:

This renowned restaurant is located in the heart of Les Praz close to the Flégère cable car. It's a great place to stop off and revive at after an active day on the mountain. 

Part of the Hotel Les Lanchers, the restaurant is open year-round and you can be sure of a warm and relaxed welcome from the French-British owners at any time. As part of the establishment there is a small public bar, suited for coffees in the daytime or essential sporting fixtures on the big screen in the evening.

The menu is prepared by head chef Thierry Morbu and features local Savoyard classics, alongside traditional French cuisine and more contemporary dishes. Menus change regularly and there are daily specials, reflecting the seasons and the associated fresh produce. Their lunch options include snacks and soups, quiches or burgers.

Open for breakfast 07:30 - 09:30, lunch 12:00 - 15:00 and dinner 18:30 - 21:30 in winter and summer.

The Bar

The separate cocktail bar area includes cosy armchairs, a log fire and large windows facing out onto the street, through which you can watch the world go by.
