« 8 M des Monts » What a great place! I entered the restaurant without really knowing what to expect. If you are in Samoëns or around, you should definitely consider booking a table in this rather-small-but-amazing restaurant. The owner welcomed us, fantastic and passionate about the concept of their wonderful restaurant. All the menu is based on fresh & organic products. They try to work as much as possible with local and/or eco-friendly farmers. The waitress/owner shared with us her extensive knowledge of the products and wines, and always had a genuine positive smile. The other waitress was extremely pleasant too and really looked after us. The dishes were well presented, full of flavours and creativity. The desire to do things well and to please the guests is so strong that it nearly becomes tangible. Amazing, tasty, surprising .. we loved it! Regarding negative aspects: the desserts were slightly on the pricey side of the spectrum. I will definitely come back! Good job to the team.

Great food with a interesting menu. Good to have a change from the usual cheese laden fair elsewhere. Everything explained and served with a smile too. I felt the wines were slightly indifferent for the prices but maybe that was down to choice.

We’ve been coming to Samoens for 5 years now and have often tried to book this restaurant but it has always been ‘complet’. Now I know why! Finally got ourselves organised and booked a week ahead to celebrate my birthday. Everything about this family run restaurant is fabulous. The menu is imaginative, the food superbly cooked and beautifully presented. The welcome is warm and genuine and the staff friendly and helpful. I love Savoyarde food but loved the sign outside saying no fondue and no raclette - that’s not what you get here. This is not the cheapest restaurant in Samoens and neither should it be - it is without doubt the best.

We have made many visits to 8 M (booking in advance on Facebook as it is VERY popular) and have always been wowed by the stunning food and attention to detail. The menu reflects the seasons and sourcing of local produce. Staff are always happy to explain the menu and provenance which adds to the gastronomic experience. A small but perfectly formed restaurant that never disappoints - how the chefs create what they do in the space available to them is amazing!!

Yet again another fantastic meal at this small village centre restaurant. We try and book very time we visit and the service and food is always superb - summer and winter this we took my in-laws who declared it a close equivalent to Michelin starred they had visited. Angelique tried to adopt my son as he loved the food so much and I think he was probably tempted to accept if he could eat like that every day. Fantastic food, wine and impeccable service. Just make sure you book well in advance and confirm the day before - they are tiny so any no shows are a nightmare for them. We will return again and again!
