The Restaurants, Bars and Cafés of Samoëns

Food and drink is an extremely important part of your holiday. Samoëns offers a good variety of restaurants serving anything from typical Savoyard dishes, Italian, Parisian, crêpes, and even a fantastic Sushi take-away! If you don't want to eat out every night, but you also don't fancy cooking, you can get delicious home-cooked frozen meals dropped off to your accommodation ready to pop in the oven.

On nights where you are not eating in your own accommodation, you may like to sample the Samoëns and Morillon local restaurants.  There are around 30 local restaurants to choose from.  These include cosy French Savoyard restaurants, bustling Pizzerias, informal Bistro style restaurants and even Gourmet and Nouvelle Cuisine. Here's a selection of some of the restaurants all in the village centres.  We recommend pre booking at peak times.  All restaurants in France are now non smoking.
