As a leading restaurant serving mountain-inspired cuisine, the restaurant at Les Cornettes has been featured in the Michelin Guide since 1933.

Short supply chains and quality products
Because quality food requires quality ingredients, Les Cornettes takes the utmost care in choosing the very best local producers and suppliers for its restaurant. We ensure that we only use fresh ingredients with a truly authentic taste.
By prioritising short supply chains and working with family companies, the Chef focuses on building relationships with people who are passionate about what they do.
Les Cornettes only serves fresh fruit and vegetables, bought as soon as they’re picked, along with a selection of cheeses made by local producers. The Chef’s team also includes a butcher who makes his own charcuterie. The hotel has a smokehouse and a drying room and a wine cellar which is packed with Grand Crus from across France and wines from the Alps (including the Swiss cantons of Valais and Vaud and Savoie in France).
