January 2019 Many Brits know that Thollon is great for its snow, apre ski, and fine food. Last week there was a new and welcome development. An English Breakfast. Mimie now offers it, and with Heinz Baked Beans. The plate consists of Sausage, Eggs (omelette or fried) Bacon Mushrooms, Heinz Baked Beans, Hash Browns. Toast, Orange Juice, Coffee/Tea And for only €12. A team of select tasters has visited, twice to make sure, and has voted it a resounding success. Thanks to HS for his dedication, twice, to the task.

La Outa. Almost opposite the telecabine station, just up the hill. Steaks cooked on an open fire in a really old Savoie restaurant. The menu is savoyard fare such as tartiflette and fondu and steaks, lamb and beef. It is run by a husband and wife team with monsieur taking the chef's role and madame running the service. Tables in three small rooms.The main room has the open fire.

St Nicolas Restaurant (WiFi)

Traditional Savoyard / Haute-Savoie cuisine. Found opposite the telecabine steps (still sometimes called JJ,s after the previous owner) The menu, which doesn't change, is traditional mountain fare, fondue, tariflette, potence, and it's all very tasty. It's reliable. During warmer weather the outside bar area is a a suntrap, popular with skiers and walkers. In the centre of Thollon Les Memises. Small Bar inside with a few tables, outside a lovely sunny terrace. Always need to book a day or so in advance unless out of season.

The 6 December 2017 saw the opening of the St Nicholas Restaurant by the new owner, Cyril. Prior to JJ's retirement Cyril was the chef at St Nick's for a number of years.Cyrils mother, Chantelle and his father, Henri and Manon provide service. Below Henri in the bar, JJ hands over to Cyril.
