After 8 years of loyal service with the Edmond de Rothschild Héritage group and 2 Michelin stars in Megève, chef Julien Gatillon decided to take flight and open his first restaurant with his partner Sonia Torland last season, called Nous! An innovative concept that can accommodate from 2 to 12 guests in a chalet located on the famous Mont d'Arbois hill. The room is inviting, with a breathtaking view of Megève and some cosy corners to enjoy an aperitif by the fire. The tableware was designed by Julien and created by a ceramic artist from Spain.
Price: from €200 for a personalised menu

Nestled at more than 3000m, at the foot of the Grande Motte glacier and accessible by funicular or by the slopes, the Panoramic restaurant in Tigne offers a generous and tasty cuisine, with fish and meat, always cooked over a wood fire and enhanced by a subtle blend of juices. The black Baltic rib of beef with its potato mousseline is in itself emblematic of the restaurant. The impressive dessert buffet will leave the gourmets dreaming ... After a Michelin star for their restaurant Ursus in Tignes, the father and son duo Jean-Michel and Clément Bouvier have won a new star with the Panoramic. A family affair on the move!
