Story and values


In the late 90s, Eric Suchet, Alpine farmer and cheese producer, inherited the family barn in St Martin de Belleville.

With passion and energy, he set about transforming the barn into a restaurant and surrou

nded himself with a team of people equally passionate as him about serving food using locally sourced products. The unique decor of the 'Montagnard' restaurant, with its slate and mountain stone, pictures and family heirlooms,  tells the story of his family and of life in the village both now and in the past. Local traditions and culinary fantasies combine to offer you the best flavours. 



Today, the team is composed of 5 people in the kitchen and 4 in 


the restaurant. Adrien, our young chef, introduces new menus ever

y season for all to enjoy. Valentin, Eric's son,the boss, will give you a warm welcome with an international flavour.

The restaurant received the prestigious 'Maître Restaurateur' award in 2013, which guarantees authentic home made cooking using locally sourced fresh produce.


Since 2107, we have a beautiful terrace overlooking the village.

Le Montagnard places a high value on providing a warm welcome and high quality service combined with a desire to share and a friendly atmosphere.
