We have been coming back to this restaurant for years and are never disappointed. The owners set the standard with high quality service making you feel part of their family. The food continues to be impressive with traditional Savoyard fare but the speciality of meat cooked by the owner on a large open fire drill in the restaurant.

3 course meal and drinks including wine worked out at £60 per head, not cheap but great value for what it offers.

As a family we were well looked after by the waiting staff. The griddled steak on the open fire was cooked to perfection and the Hermitage was a great accompaniment. Thank you.

A favourite traditional Savoyard restaurant of ours and all the visitors we have. Sylvie and Serge are the back bone of their business and they work like trojans. We have visited many, many times as we spend our ski seasons in St Gervais. Booking is essential (a few days in advance particularly in peak weeks) as it is not often a walk in will get lucky and find a free table.

We have never had a bad experience or meal here, ever! Sylvie and the waiting staff are friendly and welcoming. The offerings are delicious. The ease in which Serge cooks on the open fire grill is awesome. We have only ever tried meat offerings purely because the temptation of open fire grilled meat is too much. Each table receives a simple/rustic amuse-bouche to eat and the opportunity to order a house aperitif whilst perusing the menu. The rib of beef, the filet of beef, the loin of lamb and the Iberian pork are divine and not to be missed. The accompanying dishes are just right portion wise and our favourites are the creamiest potato gratin and the french beans. For dessert the artisanal ice creams are just about all we can fit in after the main portions but there are plenty more options, other than ice creams, for hungry post skiers. The children’s menu is limited and quite standard in what it offers. In fact, it is probably the only small thing about Le Galeta that could be improved. Our daughter would love the chance to have a smaller portion of the adult offerings so we hope one day Sylvie and Serge will think to do this.

To finish an evening with friends at Le Galeta, we share the fun and deceptively boozy multi spouted wooden teapot called a grole. It serves a hot liquor drink called café de l'amitié and guaranteed you’ll be ready to brave the cold walk home after a totally delicious and traditional Savoyard experience.

Went here twice last week and thoroughly enjoyed steaks, pork ribs and rack of lamb cooked to perfection on the indoor BBQ. Aside from meat the menu is pretty varied. Service was friendly and efficient. Would not hesitate to recommend to everyone. Thank you.
