L'Alpette, Megève

220 Route du Téléphérique de Rochebrune
France 74120
Tel: 33 450 21 03 69's insider take:

This lunchtime institution at the top of the Emile Allais trail has been around since 1935, and you don't have to be a skier or snowboarder to get here. The restaurant runs a snowcat shuttle service (for a small fee) from the top station of the Rochebrune cableway. On cold days, you can relax in armchairs in front of the fireplace; on sunny days, lunch is served on the terrace. Try the knuckle of lamb cooked in green tea and acacia honey, or Grandmother's Farmhouse Chicken with two types of local wild mushrooms. You can also dine in the evening by arrangement and afterward join a torch-lit descent on skis to the resort.

Open mid-December through April and June through October.
