Apres Ski Guide

Tsaretta Bar & Restaurant

Freshly refurbished for this season, Tsaretta is a cosy little bar and restaurant, with friendly staff and a good village atmosphere. The bar offers a great menu, including pizzas which are also available to take away, and there is live music during the week. For something special there is an a la carte restaurant upstairs with a lovely setting. It is just a stone’s throw from all our Meribel ski chalets. Tsaretta also invites us for a welcome drink at the start of your stay and this is a great place to dine for your chalet night off.
Check out the website and menu, with a choice of a la carte and bar snacks.

En’k Cafe & Bar
Tucked away just above the old stone bread oven in the village of Les Allues, this is a family run business, and very popular with the locals. It has a little bar for sipping an ‘apero’, a chilled kir or a local beer. It’s appeal is the homecooking, very reasonable prices and simple French cafe style atmosphere. Again very accessible from all our Meribel ski chalets, you may want to dine here on your night off from the chalet, takeaway is also available.

L’Arbe Restaurant & Bar
If you want to try local dishes in the heart of Les Allues, L’Arbe is a traditional savoyarde restaurant, with a lovely rustic atmosphere, serving traditional cuisine at very good prices. Once again a family run business specialising in grilled meats, fondu savoyarde, & fish dishes. There is also a little bar if you want to pop in for a drink, open log fire to relax by and they also do great coffees in the morning time.

Hotel La Croix Jean Claude Restaurant & Bar
This historic bar-hotel-restaurant located in the heart of the village of Allues is one of the oldest establishments (since 1878) in the valley - in 1938 it witnessed the opening of the resorts first ski lift, right outside its doors. Today, la Croix Jean-Claude is the heart and soul of this mountain village. Gérard, the host, and his team welcome you in and invite you to taste the refined cuisine sourced from products fresh from the market. The restaurant has a very warm atmosphere, with a choice of a la carte or set menu and a good selection of wines from the Rhone Alps. The bar is traditional and busy with locals.

La Chaumiere Restaurant & Bar
Located at the entrance of Les Allues and within walking distance of all our Meribel chalets, this is another well established restaurant and bar in the village. Wooden clad, savoyarde in style they offer a fine dining experience with gourmet food. Although more expensive than the other restaurants in Les Allues, it does offer very good quality food and the best value is to opt for their 3 course set menu. Have a stroll along and take a look at their menu. Again the bar is popular with the locals if you just fancy popping in for a drink.

Meribel has a very compact centre, so it’s great for a night out, as you can pop from bar to bar, it also has an extensive choice of restaurants. Please make use of our courtesy minibus service, which runs till 1am. We pick you up from your chalet and take you home at the end of the night. The main bars to choose from are, The Doron Pub, La Taverne, The Cactus cafe, Evolution, Jacks Bar, La Poste, Le Saint Amour wine & tapas bar, Scotts Bar, Pizza Express, Barometer, Fifty Fifty and some of the busiest spots are:

Rond Point des Pistes Apres Ski Bar
Probably one of the most famous and popular apres ski bars in the Three Valleys. When you finish your Meribel skiing it is set right on the piste side, with a huge south facing sundeck, you really do ski straight in after skiing. Everyday live British bands play on the terrace or in the bar from 5pm onwards. It is normally packed every night with the music thumping out. This is where ‘The Feeling’ started out and are now well known for their chart success.

Evolution Brasserie
Evolution is a stylish, relaxed cafe bar & brasserie serving bistro style lunches, and a la carte dinner. Evo’s has a fresh innovative menu. It’s a friendly atmosphere with free wifi, great coffees and homemade hot chocolates. Busy and bustling during the day and a chill out venue at night, with occasional live music.

Lodge du Village
Is also a great apres ski venue to ski down to at the end of the day with a lively lounge bar and sunny terrace and balcony make it a great spot. With regular Happy hours and live music it’s good for a little boogie in your ski boots. Ideal spot for lunch whilst out skiing.

O'Sullivans night club formerly Dick's Tea Bar
Has been for years one of the oldest & most famous clubs in the Alps and is Meribel’s premier nightclub. With improved lighting and sound systems, plasma screens, a new VIP service, group packages and having had a facelift it is now even more impressive than ever! Having teamed up with Esoteric and Ministry of Sounds Houesexy to bring you the freshest breaks, drum and bass and house music, this season looks set to be amazing! However, with Indie rock so popular in Ibiza, O'Sullivans will bring the indie club night to Meribel, a great mix of indie rock and dance, providing you with an all-round clubbing experience that is sophisticated, decadent and at times hedonistic.

If you want to book a private area in the main bar for the night, booking one of the comfy booths is the perfect way to make your night a little bit more special. Queue Jump for your group and a bottle of Spirits are included in the price.
