Utterly disappointing and forgettable food. Had the "Valentine's menu" which was €70 for 6 courses and was the worst fine dining experience I've ever had. The monkfish was served cold with no flavour. The veal was over cooked and unseasoned. The dessert was actively awful and inedible. Our dissatisfaction was clear after the first few courses but at no point... More

There are 3 Michelin star restaurants in Chamonix and this is one of them. Stunning really, when you realize you can get in often without a reservation (although they prefer them), and be wearing your ski clothes. It is on the expensive side but nothing compared to a Michelin restaurant in a major city (which you can't get into anyways).... More

The menu is limited but reads well. However the dishes were surprisingly subpar: perch that was overly fried and oily and plated unappetizingly; veal that was too fatty. The service was also slow, but I could have lived with that had the food been good.

Very well worth to go for food and ambience. The only reason for the4 star is that if the menu is more informative in English would have warren the fifth star. All said, is still worth eating in this Resturant.

The food has gone down in quality. It looks the part of the French "nouveu cuisine" and it used to taste the part. But on our last visit, the food looked good, but tasted seriously below average. On top of it, we had a lovely waiter who totally ripped us off with smile on her face. We got the lunch... More

After having dinner at the bistrot, we came back to try more dishes and liked every single one of them. The creative chef makes delicious food , well decorated plates. The atmosphere is nice and the service attentive and efficient. One of the best restaurants we have been at.

Walked in without having booking. Even thought it was a Sat night and busy we were seated immediately without any fuss. Food was excellent. Modern and imaginative. Service couldn't have been better. Have paid a lot more for lower quality food with poor service. Can't recommend high enough !!!

We were a group of six who dined here over the Xmas/New Year period. The staff were very friendly, and the food was superb. I would have rated this 5 if it had been a little faster in service. Something seemed to have been confused in the kitchen as we did wait for almost an hour for our entree (as... More
