La Rotonde: the ‘grown-up sister’ of L’Etale run by the same team but with a more sophisticated menu and décor. Lovely garden and terrace for the summer months. La Rotonde is open most of the year, even in quiet seasons.

Le Clin d’Oeil: hidden away near Carrefour in the lower part of Morzine, le Clin d’Oeil (which means ‘wink’) is run by Kristel and her husband who are originally from the south-west of France. Their menu combines local specialities from the Savoie region like fondue & tartiflette with south-west dishes such as Cassoulet. Open all year-round.

La Chaudanne: a newly renovated old favourite run by Thierry and his wife. A great setting in a traditional chalet-style building with a wine bar in the basement and a lovely terrace for sunny days.
