St Martin Bars and Restaurants

Our favourite bars and restaurants in St Martin de Belleville

St Martin de Belleville is known across the Three Valleys as a fabulous lunch destination, and rightfully so.  In fact many guests come and stay with us, having discovered the village on their skis!  There is a fantastic selection of eateries to chose from, whether it’s a splash-out with Michelin stars or a speedy pizza, St Martin de Belleville has it all.  Below is a summary of our favourite restaurants in St Martin. With mention of a few of our favourite bars too!


The P Bar

The P Bar (formerly the Piano Bar) is cosy and welcoming and offers LIVE MUSIC at least twice a week. Catch local bands play on Sunday afternoons and Thursday après-ski and indulge in a fabulous cocktail, glass of wine or even Zante – the apple version of Vin Chaud. Very popular bar with St Martin residents (Daisy and Balloo have been known to be found here…!) and holiday guests alike.

Le Joker

The Joker bar is in two parts – upstairs is a real local haunt where mountain matters of all sorts are discussed by the men of the village over a beer and downstairs which opens at 9.30pm and is a popular bar with seasonnaires and anyone up for a late night, complete with pool table and occasional karaoke!


La Voute

La Voute is good value and is THE place for pizza in the village. It’s nearly always busy and both inside and outside on the terrace are a great place to eat. Service is normally pretty snappy and it’s run by 3 brothers: Stefan, Jerome and Nicolas.

It looks unimpressive from the village side, but don’t let the dull exterior put you off. The Eterlou serves fantastic, and very reasonably priced food. Best on a sunny day to sit on the terrace, watching skiers on the village piste and drag lift. The great value Menu du Jour never disappoints or else head for the huge garlic prawns!

La Ferme de Choumette

Located just above St Martin, La Ferme is still a working farm with huge windows in the restaurant looking down on the barn below, with cows, sheep, chickens and a goat or two! The menu is huge with excellent food (especially for carnivores) and the view at night down over the village is spectacular.

Le Lachenal

A truly Savoyard restaurant run by Xavier and Martine offering a lovely and traditional atmosphere both inside and outside on their terrace. If it’s cheese you’re after, this is the place! An open fire and a very warm welcome awaits.

L’Étoile de Neige

A favourite with local ski instructors and their clients at lunch time thanks to its huge terrace and good food. It is lovely but pretty pricey, perhaps not offering the same value as some of the other options available.

Le Chantacoucou

A real one off, Le Chantacoucou is a working farm in Le Châtelard, designated a ‘Ferme Auberge’ where the vast majority of their food comes from the farm itself. Start with homemade beef charcuterie, followed by a delicious main course cooked by the farmer’s wife Josette (N.B. There is no choice so picky eaters should head elsewhere!), then homemade cheese followed by pudding. All homemade and served by the farmer Bernard. Totally rustic and utterly charming!

Le Dahlia

Whether it’s a gigantic restorative hot chocolate mid-morning, a huge burger to power you into the afternoon or an après-ski beer on your way home, the Dahlia is the place! Located directly opposite the gondola, you can’t miss it.

La Bouitte

Awarded it’s 3rd Michelin star in 2015, La Bouitte is the newly crowned gastronomique pride of the Belleville Valley. Serious dining, serious service and the heaviest wine list you have ever seen! A real treat for either lunch or dinner on chalet night-off, don’t miss a snoop around the wine cave on your way to the loo or the fluffy slippers issued if you arrive in ski boots!

Le Grenier, Hotel St Martin

Possibly the smartest restaurant within St Martin village itself, positioned dead ahead of you as you ski through the tunnel into St Martin. Part of the 4* Hotel St Martin, Le Grenier offers high-end local Savoyard dishes and has a fabulous new terrace.

Le Montagnard

Hugely popular restaurant in the middle of the village – make sure you book early to guarantee your table! Savoyard specialities are the order of the day, and fabulous steaks and other meat dishes. Awarded the prestigious ‘Maître Restauranteur’ the Montagnard’s character, service and food was nationally recognised. There is no terrace here, but the interior is brimming full of character you won’t notice the lack of sun.

Le Jardin de Josephine

Owned by the same family as the Montagnard, Le Jardin de Josephine was new in 2014 and puts a fresh and innovative take on the local specialties and lots of vegetables. The restaurant is light and modern, but like the Montagnard, it has no terrace.
