Le Refuge's chef, Franck Soyer, defected in 2001 from La Sauvageonne, a landmark Savoyard restaurant that once occupied the former farm next door. Much of Soyer's reputation rests on the beef produced by Joseph Soquet, a local farmer. Steak, cooked on the rotisserie, doesn't come any better, served with mushrooms and potatoes. The restaurant's lack of pretension is evident from the service, the wine list (about 60 modestly priced local bottles), and the interior (a small, all-wood chalet). Lunch is the best time to go, provided you reserve a table outside on the terrace.

Call ahead for hours.
