Ski resorts by train

Meribel - eat, drink, party

Mountain restaurants

Lunch on the mountain – as ever when skiing – is one of the great pleasures of a holiday in Méribel. Watch out if you end up in Courchevel in the middle of the day. Prices there can be high.

Our tip is to ski to La Tania with lunch in mind – go to Pub le Ski Lodge at the bottom of the wonderful tree-lined Folyères. The terrace catches the sun and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Think hearty plates (burgers, salads) rather than haute cuisine. Le Rond Point (00 33 47 900 37 51) is popular for lunch, as well as après-ski. Try L’Adray Telebar (00 33 47 908 60 26) beside the Adret chair if you’re feeling flush.

Restaurants in town

Le Refuge is a popular spot for lunch and dinner, and is reasonably priced. The place for fondue in Méribel

is Le Fromagerie (00 33 4 79 08 55 48). The ambiance is traditional and lively, there is a cheese shop upstairs and booking is essential.

Après-ski and nightlife

As the ski-lifts whirr to a halt and a silence settles over the mountain, the party has probably already started at Le Rond Point. Le Poste and Le Pub are other big après-ski venues. Expect dancing on the tables in ski boots.

A bit later on, the party continues in Barometer. And then things get really messy. The Loft is a popular nightclub in Méribel. Expect big-name DJs and partying until 4am.

If you prefer your evenings to be more quiet, Méribel-Mottaret may be a better option.
