UPDATED for winter 2021/22

A lot has changed after Covid hit nearly 1.5 years ago but we are glad to say that most restaurants have survived and are keen to open their doors in winter 2021/22. Some are under new management and others have used the time to update, renovate and improve their restaurants / bars.

We have therefore updated our list of recommended places to eat, drink and relax in St Martin de Belleville.

What’s new?

  • Lodji – hotel, bar and restaurant by the gondola
    Complete refit, renovation and extension of the previous ‘Alp Hotel’
  • L’Art B – bar and restaurant by the drag lift
    The previous ‘L’Eterlou’ bar has been renovated to a stylish and comfortable bar offering cocktails and a great selection of wines and craft beers.
    In collaboration with the restaurant on the first floor, charcuterie and cheese boards can be ordered for peckish guests!
  • Maya Altitude Restaurant – Alpine restaurant and bar at the top of St Martin Express
    We are waiting for confirmation of what exactly this newly renovated Alpine restaurant will offer this upcoming winter season. There are rumours of it being a fantastic après-ski venue that will offer live music in the afternoons. Fingers crossed!
