It’s likely you’ll be dining at your chalet for most of your ski holiday in Morzine, but the village offers a tempting culinary scene that’s not to be missed during your next visit. For the most part, you’ll find traditional Savoyard cuisine, and that’s not a bad thing. This is one of the best places to sample top-notch raclette and Le Farçon, a weirdly satisfying sweet and salty cake made of potatoes, cream, dried fruit, and bacon. And don’t worry, you’ll burn those extra calories off on the slopes. Here are a few of our favourite places to dine in Morzine.
