Michelin-Starred Restaurants

The interior of the restaurant

L'Ekrin: Méribel has many excellent restaurants but only one of them bears the coveted Michelin star...  at the five-star Hotel la Kaila on Route de la Montée, serving sophisticated haute cuisine in an "intimate and elegant chalet, where luxury vies with elegance".

Le 80: If you can't get a table at L'Ekrin then also at Hotel la Kaila this restaurant serves a brasserie menu designed by the same chef.

Le Cèpe: Also worth a try in Immeuble Les Merisiers for their fresh regional cuisine featuring fish caught from the local lakes and mushrooms foraged from nearby forests. At under 30€ for a set menu it is also rather good value.
