My friend and I ate twice at La Caleche during our recent visit. We really enjoyed the local chalet style ambience with a fascinating collection of traditional cooking implements around the walls. The restaurant was busy both times, especially the second, but the service was...More

The first time we went to Chamonix I wanted to try the "red sheep" restaurant. When we brought our adult children back to visit Chamonix I suggested this place. I nicknamed it the "red sheep" restaurant because it has two large sheep with red wool...More

Very friendly restaurant with varied history, interesting and fun ambience. First time I've tried raclette and on a cool rainy night after a ten mile hike, it was just what I needed. They even substituted verges for the mended cured meat.

Friendly, including providing colouring-in packs for kids, excellent food with choices for all ages and palates. Interesting decor with local historical artefacts...More

We had a great dinner at this restaurant. Lot's to choose from and although we didn't go for the traditional Raclette or Fondue, we still had great food. There's a 1st line outside the restaurant and then there's a second wait line inside the restaurant......More

This restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel. The food was good; the ambiance was great. The server, however, was haughty and rude. If you have thick skin, go here. If you don't, try someplace else. The service wasn't even good enough to accompany his...More
