We spent the 31 Dec at Le Refuge. We had a 6 course dinner, mainly fish dishes, really really good. The location is fantastic, the atmosphere was also very cool. Wines in line with expectations although a little overpriced. In conclusion highly recommanded

Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Food was simple but well cokked and beautifully presented. The scallop croque monsieur with butternut soup starter is amazing! Overall excellent value...

The quality of the food is very good, classical french cuisine with the touch of the chef and owner Franck, that you never see. The service is friendly and good Prices are decent for what you get Keep... More

Overall, would not rate as positive as most people have done here; based on the reviews I was slightly disappointed. Great location, nice interior and friendly staff. Food was good - certainly better than average, but not blowing you away either. Excellent wine list, we really enjoyed it :-) Price quality certainly good for Megeve, although I have been to...

The food quality was fairly average and not worth the money spent. The restaurant charged 5.5 euros for tape water which is uncommon in France.
