If you are visiting Morzine and you have special dietary requirements, then you may be wondering how easy it will be to eat out! Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, gluten intolerant, lactose intolerant or if you have a different dietary requirement, you will be pleased to learn that the restaurants in Morzine (and in France on the whole) have vastly improved their offering! All restaurants in France now legally have to provide information about which of their dishes contain certain products and certain allergens. If this information isn’t already marked on their main menu, they will have an additional menu that does list all allergens as this is now a legal requirement. However some restaurants have more choice than others for certain intolerances and here is a quick round up…..
Le Bec Jaune
