Discover the cuisine of our Chef Antoine Gras, who runs our three restaurants

At only 28 years of age, Antoine Gras is the promising young head chef at Les Barmes de l’Ours. Born in the Auvergne, it was his curiosity that first drew him to the stoves. Later, it was his passion and his attention to detail that brought him to the kitchens at Les Barmes.

He joined us in 2013 as a commis chef. He then rose through the ranks to become Chef in 2017.

One season later, his hard work was rewarded with a star in the Michelin Guide. Coming into his own in Savoie, he draws his inspiration from the bounty of the surrounding countryside to give full rein to his creativity. From the traditional Crozet de Savoie – a buckwheat pasta typical of the region – to the mythical Beaufort cheese. From the fish from the region’s lakes to the aromas of the famous Chartreuse liqueur.

Antoine takes his guests on a culinary journey

combining produce from near and far to create just the right associations of flavour in his Michelin-starred restaurant, La Table de l’Ours.

His personality – straightforward but generous – can also be found in the bistronomic dishes that he proposes at  la Rôtisserie, the hotel’s brasserie, and at  le Coin Savoyard, the restaurant that serves local specialities.


Every day, he works alongside a team of twenty-seven people who all share the single objective: to give pleasure to their guests at the hotel’s three restaurants.

Our partners, local producers

Chef Antoine Gras is constantly on the look-out for producers who share his vision of the profession so that he can select the very best products and make the most of their expertise at the hotel.

As they are deeply involved in the culinary experience offered in our restaurants, it is important to thank them, illustrating the work that they undertake alongside us:

Xavier Mattis and his farm

“Made in Val d’Isère”
