Definitively my favourite place for lunch when skiing in Les Contamines (and I tried them all for 30 years!). Refurbished and extended a few years ago, the owner and staff are so nice and food so satisfying that once you've been there you will come...More

Some of the best food on the slopes. Best croute Savoyarde you can find. Gets a bit busy at lunchtime but worth the wait.

We have been coming here for at least 10 years. Originally it was a simple old mountain hut which they have added to as the restaurant got more successful. It has a wonderful terrace and friendly staff. However it can get very busy! That's the...More

I have eaten at many of the restaurants on the pistes at Les Contamines. Buche Croisee is very good and the service is excellent. Francois is a very cordial and accommodating restaurant manager and Olivier (the chef) is excellent.

We had lunch here a couple of times and loved the food. It is a bit pricey but not extortionate. The Tarte Tatin was excellent and is highly recommended.

Hello, thanks for your review, but the photo you uploaded wasn't taken at La buche croisée. I agree with the lovely food and scenery ;) but I guess other places nearby deserve it too... If you never came before, we will glad to see you...More

La Bûche Croisée is, without a doubt, our favourite lunch spot at Les Contamines Montjoie. It is a little tucked away, just above the bottom of the Bûche Croisée chair, but it is signposted at the bottom of the Fredze run and not hard to...More
