Restaurants and Bars

St Gervais has a good number of restaurants, and most are reasonably priced. Traditional Savoyarde dishes are popular on the menus, but there are other choices if you prefer.

St Gervais is a quiet town compared to many ski resorts, but there is a good selection of bars, including the Oboose Bar just a few minutes from the apartment - which we can highly recommend.

The official tourist office website has a full list of both bars and restaurants.



Being a popular tourist destination, there are a number of shops selling souvenirs, but also regional products frequented by tourist and resident alike. Apart from that, all the usual suspects are there - boulangeries, patisseries, supermarkets etc. A full list is available here.
