We've visited often over the years. The menu remains much the same, as does the atmosphere, the very pleasant friendly service where our waiter this visit regaled us with tales of his prowess (ok, not everyone's taste perhaps), excellent food - the Tartiflette, the steak. All simple dishes but well done and generous. And despite the recent review of John;s... More

One cannot fault the location of this restaurant nor the breathtaking views it offers. The rustic decoration is also extremely pleasant. Aside from the views, however, the other thing that took my breath away was the prices. Should you have the time and inclination for a long lunch I am sure it justifies the high ratings it receives. Should you... More

Les Cretes is my favourite restaurant in the 3 Valleys and having been lucky enough to ski / travel / work all across the world, I don’t think there is anywhere better! One can perhaps find small faults with the food but bear in mind everything has been lugged up a mountain and is always delivered with a smile, I... More

A very nice lunch on the terrace. Waiter was really pleasant. Good food and wine, really a good little place where the owner clearly takes pride in delivering a good lunch for his customers. It was pleasant and less expensive than most other places and we will come back.

Les Cretes has a fantastic location on the ridge between Meribel and St Martin overlooking the two valleys and accessed by either the St Martin 2 or Tougnete 2 chairlifts. This is a 'proper' family run establishment with all the idiosyncrasies that come with it. Personally, I think it adds to the experience and judging by how consistently busy this... More

Really really disappointing service here today. The food was fine (so it should be - €20+ for a main course) but we had to wait an hour for the food to arrive. I'm afraid that's just not good enough. What a pity.

We were lucky enough to get a table yesterday l in this lovely little mountain restaurant as we arrived for an early lunch. The owner was very welcoming and the food was excellent, traditional, locally-sourced fare. My husband was particularly impressed with the wine list and we are looking forward to our next visit. A real gem.

Easy to find, great lunch spot, the tartiflette is the best. We spotted a small plane in the Val Thorens valley which then proceeded to buzz us at about 80 metres, just for fun. Leaving is just as much fun, as you are at the top of Jerusalem.

Been there with 2 friends during a ski trip around the Three Valleys. The Team is friendly and offers a warm welcome. The food is excellent and not pricey at all. The sunny terrace gives you a beautiful view. You feel at home. Highly recommended !
