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.

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.

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.
