L'Etale Restaurant, Morzine, France

Even in the summer, L'Etale Restaurant is bustling. Large and central, it boasts a pretty extensive menu featuring most of the classics you would expect in the Alps. If you want something rich, tasty and filling for less than 15 euros, opt for the tartiflette. Served with a small salad, it is delicious, thanks primarily to the very strong cheese. For desert, the ice cream is very good. However, service can be patchy, while the table water may be tepid and the bread a tad hard. Still, L'Etale Restaurant's packed tables indoor and out, and buzzy atmosphere, are testament to the quality of its hearty mountain food and its reasonable prices. 7/10
