Le Hors Pistes Restaurant, Les Houches

Lunch in the sun on the slopes

Brilliantly located in the heart of the Les Houches Prarion ski area, a busy mountain restaurant with regular live music on the terrace.

Despite its name, you won't need a shovel and a transceiver to safely make it to the door of this restaurant to enjoy lunch or a hot chocolate on its sunny terrace. It couldn't be more convenient to find; right at the top of the Maison Neuve chairlift and a few steps from the the famous "Kandahar" downhill course and chairlift of the same name.  

Open for breakfast and lunch and serving drinks and snacks all day, this popular mountain stop off serves generous plates of hearty food to refuel tired ski legs. Pastas, steak, burgers and tartiflette are all on the menu, but be warned, this place is popular so don't forget to book your table for lunch to avoid a long wait.

If you want a dinner venue with a difference then evening meals are possible for groups of 20+ people. Booking 24hrs in advance is essential.

Worth knowing

Advance booking recommended for lunchtime.


Visitor comments

  • "Had a great lunch here, view, ok menu, slick service, food as described, wholesome and hearty ahead of an afternoon skiing." - Trip Advisor
  • "Loved the food, staff and views here, table service unlike many others, slightly more expensive but worth every penny (or Euro!) Definitely ask about the plat du jour - based on what's in season and very fresh and delicious, can't wait to go back!" - Trip Advisor
  • "Awesome place to eat lunch when in Les Houches. Try the burger, its a bit pricy but well worth it. It's located halfway down the Kandahar piste." - Trip Advisor
