France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Restaurants in Aix-les-Bains, France
A great variety of dining places, from pizza joints to Michelin-starred relais gastronomique. Look for a place with a fine lake-and-mountain view.




Like most French towns, Aix-les-Bains has a lot of restaurants. Many are associated with the hotels in the town, while others cluster around the waterfront.

Many of the best restaurants in the area are around the Lac du Bourget, rather than in Aix-les-Bains itself. The tiny town of Le Bourget du Lac is home to three Michelin one-star restaurants and one two-star restaurant! These are only a short drive (10 kilometers, or about 6 miles) from Aix-les-Bains, and well worth the trip.

We enjoyed a delightful lunch on the terrace of Lamartine, with excellent food and wine and a lovely view of the lake and mountains.

Other choices include La Grange au Sel, Atmosphères, and Le Bateau Ivre.

If you want something more casual (and less expensive), head north from Aix-les-Bains to Châtillon, at the northern end of the lake, about 18 kilometers (11 miles) from Aix-les-Bains. A couple of waterfront restaurants in the tiny Port of Châtillon provide very good food and views. When we were there, there were a lot of locals having lunch, adding to the friendly atmosphere.
