La Péla is one of the most popular restaurants in Les Gets and is set in an old Savoyard farm in the centre of the village. With an authentic yet modern alpine interior and a wonderful warm atmosphere the restaurant offers a fine selection of traditional Savoyard cuisine. A “péla” is actually a traditional word for tartiflette and there several variations of it on the menu. There are also Savoyard cheese and meat dishes and a selection of fish dishes such as their ‘Le filet St. Pierre’. Ask for a table close to the open fire and always leave space for dessert—their Café Gourmand never fails to impress!
La Biskatcha is a brasserie and grill in the centre of Les Gets making up one of the three restaurants in the La Marmotte chalet-hotel. The Hotel itself has been part of the Mirigay Family since 1947, welcoming guests from all over the world, and La Biskatcha is the Mirigay family’s dining alternative to the many regional Savoyard menus in town. The restaurant, along with the adjoining tapas bar, L’Anka, boasts colourful and casual décor and serves up traditional, high-quality dishes such as grilled meats and tapas, and more exotic options, many of which are cooked on their authentic wood-fired barbecue. The tapas menu changes with the seasons and their wine list is wonderful, offering a great selection of local and world wines. L’Anka is also great for a pre-dinner aperitif if you just fancy popping in for a drink.
LA FRUITIÈRE DES PERRIÈRES
At the far end of Les Gets (very close to our chalet Ferme de Moudon) sits La Fruitière des Perrières. This is the local restaurant attached to the local Fromagerie (cheese maker) and it is a must visit in the day to watch the local cheese making process and sample local cheeses. But in the evening, you can experience their produce in a very authentic setting. On arrival you are seated at a communal dining table by an open fire and presented with an aperitif, Le Marquisette (white rum, grenadine, white wine, oranges and lemons). The menu, focusing around local produce, offers soups, stews and of course, incredible fondues. Here they use the traditional mix of swiss gruyère, comté fruité and vacherin fribourgeois served with a platter of local charcuterie, potatoes, pickles and salad. The mushroom (cep) fondue is also worth a try. Rustic, authentic and wholly alpine. We highly recommend.
On piste, Perrières
La Paika is without question one of the best and most popular restaurants in the entire region. It features heavily in any resort guide, press review or Michelin guide recommendation. Come winter or summer, for incredible mountain dining, drinks, mountain BBQs, the best views, you name it, they do it and they are the best. Find it on the slopes down to Perrières, set in a renovated alpage building. It offers a wonderful warm atmosphere and delicious food. In spring their chefs cook on huge flaming grills outdoors. There’s a great wine list and as you walk in the front door you will pass two tables worth of the freshest most delicious homemade, fresh baked, cakes of every kind. One of our favourite lunch spots. Take a table on the sunny terrace and let the afternoon unwind.
