This restaurant is a beautiful old space with great patina. The food and service are top notch with a choice of traditional dishes. The wine list is excellent and the prices were reasonable. I can't imagine a better restaurant in Chamonix.

We came here for lunch on a bright summer's afternoon and we're mesmerised at the outdoor section of the restaurant and its beauty. It was great ambience outside With all the greenery. The food though, was far greater than the atmosphere. We were nicely surprised...More

We were a group of eight. We had an amazing meal here. Everything was authentic and good. The building itself is also very cool (don't miss the fireplace with the huge chimney for smoking meats). The desert table was great. You won't be disappointed.
