For such a small village, there's a huge variety of places to eat, to suit all taste buds. Lots of skiers from all over the Three Valleys stop here for lunch, so there are loads of mountain restaurants as well as restaurants in the village. Many of them are quite traditional, chalet-type buildings but there'a a wide range of cuisines and a lot of high-quality meals to be had.
• La Bouitte, St Marcel de Belleville – The first in the region to achieve 3 Michelin stars. The stunning menu includes speciality mains and themed desserts which all look like works of art. Try the 3,4,5 or 8-course tasting menu.
• Le Montagnard – An atmospheric converted barn with a great ambience and a good range of gourmet fare - a real favourite.
• Le Jardin de Joséphine – Refreshingly non-traditional, this is a modern place with a small but delicious menu that includes dishes like cod and vegetable millefeuille, Saint Jacques risotto and apricot, honey and lavender tiramisu.
• La Ferme de la Choumette – A little way out of the village, this working farm and cheesery specialises in meat cooked on an open grill - from beef and lamb to ham and Savoie sausage.
• La Voute – Take your pick from the huge and varied menu - from pizzas (try the Savoyard, with reblochon cheese, onions, bacon and potato), to grilled meats and fish, to classic fondue, raclette and tartiflette.
• Wok Ski (bottom of Moraine chairlift) – Busy skiers can stop here and build their own noodle or rice box for a quick, healthy and value-for-money lunch.
• Le Cap Horn (Courchevel Altiport) – Book early to nab a table here and sample their amazing seafood or sushi. Come après time, the huge terrace comes alive with DJ music and table dancing.
• Le Bouche à Oreille (top of Les Granges) – The two Michelin-starred chef tempts diners with proper regional cuisine – no stodgy food here – to compliment the wonderful views.
• Le Chalet de la Marine (Dalles piste) – The epitome of a mountain hut, with a roaring fire, sheepskin rugs and tasty local cuisine, plus live music and DJs on the terrace in the afternoons.
• Le Grenier (Hotel St Martin) - This piste-side restaurant at the Hotel Martin, is a perfect place to stop for a spot of lunch with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. It serves up great local specialities and a sunny outdoor terrace.
There aren't many amenities in St Martin de Belleville anyway, so après-wise there isn't going to be much going on. There are around two popular bars in resort, but if you're dying for a party, then the resort is part of the Three Valleys, so nightlife is never far away.
• The Pourquoi Pas – A cosy piano bar, complete with log fire. The atmosphere is chilled most of the time, though it does host some rock evenings occasionally.
• Brewski's – This one is slightly more lively with lots of music and even the occasional karaoke.
• Le Joker – A teeny bar run by a cheeky Russian man that serves up lethal drinks. There is no official opening times for this bar, so you may end up being there all night - but there's a pool table and pub games machines to keep you busy.
• Chalet La Loy, on the edge of the Biolley piste, is a pretty cabin which serves typical Savoyard food.
• The St Martin 2 lift usually has shorter queues in the morning and gives access to a wider variety of runs.
