A&D, on the rue de Bourg, opened in 2010 and since then has been a big success, notably due to the quality ingredients selected by owner Porl Denicolo. They serve full cooked breakfasts, complete with tea for around €9, which is about the best price you'll find for such hearty portions. Plus, in the evenings, they do a proper fish and chips for €8 if you miss the grub from back home.
For a quick coffee, head to Berits & Brown, with its comfy couches and selection of gourmet coffees. The coffee shop is in the back, where you can enjoy a fresh-ground cuppa, along with French- or Brit-inspired pastries if you need a little sugar in the morning.
La Pointe de Nyon sits right on the slopes and is accessible by taking the lift of the same name. The restaurant was recently reconstructed and re-opened in June 2011, with a spacious dining room and an outdoor dining area with a wide-open view of the surrounding slopes. As for food, you'll find a variety of salads, soups, pasta, and pizza, along with traditional Savoyard dishes and even a foie gras burger.
In the village, look for La Grange on the Chemin de la Coutettaz, where you'll find several different fondue varieties and local meat dishes, as well as surprising desserts like spice bread crème brulée. Everything is decorated in tasteful mountain style, with a cosy wooden interior and a flaming fireplace. The place is popular, so you may want to call ahead: +33(0)450.759.640.
L'Atelier, in the Hotel Le Samoyède, serves elegant dishes carefully dosed with spices as well as upscale terroir fare. Chef Alexandre Baud-Pachon has trained in several Michelin-starred restaurants in the region and came to Morzine in 2001 to open his own restaurant.
Fixed price menus start at €33 and may include specialties such as lobster and ginger ravioles, fera filet with truffle risotto, and Charolais beef with Beaufort polenta gratin. The menu changes with the seasons, ensuring impeccable freshness.
Le Mas de la Coutettaz, also known as the (more pronouncable) Farmhouse, is housed in Morzine's oldest building, a 1771 farmstead. Here, guests sit at convivial banquet-style tables in the traditionally decorated dining room, which used to be the cattle stable back in the old days.
Meals cost €40 per person and include at least four courses, with dishes like red onion and goat cheese tart, roast tarragon and mushroom chicken, and chocolate lava cake. After-dinner coffee is served in the bar, adding to the down-home atmosphere. Note: if you have children under 13 dining with you, mention it when you reserve, which you should do 24 hours in advance.
Le Clin d'œil, near the mayor's office on the Route du Plan, specializes in southwest French cuisine. Duck and foie gras dishes pepper the menu, which is a welcome change for the resort, but of course, the restaurant offers the regular Savoyard cheese dishes as well. Fixed menus run from €20 to €40.
Mamma's does low-key right, with a selection of freshly made pizzas, pasta and noodle dishes, and fish n'chips. They also do wraps, burgers, and salads, so pretty much everyone in your group will find something good, to enjoy on-site or to take away. Prices around €10.
Tibetan Café recently changed names from the Buddha Café, but the Asian-inspired atmosphere remains the same-lively and hip. Giant plasma screens show ski, board, and biking action, while fresh-off-the-piste guests lounge on comfy couches and nosh on tapas. The bar is open from 4 p.m to 2 a.m, but starts jumping around 9 p.m. You'll find the Tibetan Café between the tourist office and the Pleney.
Robinson Bar is an interesting après-ski choice for three reasons : no music, a single beer on tap, and an 8 p.m closing time. Not convinced? The only beer served is the locally-brewed Mutzig, of an unknown, but presumably powerful proof. Instead of thumping tunes, the owners prefer to let guests recount the day's slopeside exploits. And the bar closes early because otherwise, the Mutzig would do you in. Sounds intriguing, no? You'll find it at the end of the village, near the church and the mayor's office.
