Small, cosy restaurant that doesn't look much from the outside, but it was nice that the vibe was more homely than touristy! The menu is full of traditional savoyarde dishes but with other options such as steak and lamb chops (nice to see a note on the menu saying that all the meat came from the local butchers). The portions... More

Nice, small place, quite simple. Place is own by a couple who tries their best and then the food is OK, but when more people come to eat, they struggle. We had menu du savoie which is really good value for money.

A great little local restaurant serving traditional menus. All freshly made. The chef is funny--great hair. The service is good and friendly. All you need for a value meal that is tasty and in a fun place. Popular with locals so a good sign.

The place is beautiful and the prices are fair for the location. Meals are good. The service is a bit annoying. You have to ask to have basic things like bread. They do not tell you before if some meals are eat as you can (like raclette or fondue).

Great place to eat if you want to soak up some Chamonix atmosphere. We go there whenever we go to Chamonix and the owner always recognises us each year. Salads, pastas, etc. Good portions, reasonable prices.

We visited this restaurant over Easter. Always busy but have a very well organised team. We had the fondue menu which was delicious and huge! They even paid attention to offer us a shot as we were asked to change tables between courses to be able to sit a bigger group. Nice service, nice food and friendly atmosphere!

Great location, nice interior and friendly service. The chicken souvlaki was average, the burger steak with fries very nice and so was the greek salad. The house wine from the jug leaves a lot to desire. A nice ok place.

We stumbled upon this restaurant for lunch which is located on the main street of Chamonix and decided to give it a try. It was super busy for lunch and we were not disappointed. This restaurant is locally owed by a husband and wife couple and has been in the family for 30 years. We got the 3 course cheese... More

My wife, my daughter and myself had another amazing meal here last night - we've eaten here for 9 years and never been disappointed; as always well looked after - the perigourdine salad was topped with a lovely egg and my daughters first fondue was not disappointing - given the choice our 5 year old would eat here every night...
