We came here for lunch as a family due to the bib recommendation. Lunch service was rather quiet (we were told this is often the case), but very pleasant. Food was good, including the kids menu. The risotto (starter of the fixed price menu) was terrific. And the sauces were great. Overall: i would happily come back, but not plan... More

Good meat and good service. The cheese was ok, the fish is not to recommend. Dessert was good. Expected more of this place.

I haven't been in Chamonix for a while, and was a bit worried to see that La Revola had slipped down the rankings a bit. Was everything still OK? No need to worry, we still had a wonderful meal in a quiet and elegant room when we visited this week; eveything was as you would expect - tasty amuse bouche,... More

We were very early in the summer season in Chamonix, and most restaurants had just opened for the season. A great time to visit, BTW...awesome weather and fewer crowds. Due to the odd location of Revola (and early season) we were one of only a few tables filled in the restaurant, and it was great....it was like having a private... More

This restaurant is about 5 minutes from the main railway station, and beyond the normal tourist drag — the short walk is well worth the effort ! The dining room is small and intimate with one very efficient but overworked waiter (probably a partner). After a splendid “mise en bouche” (crème d’asperges), we enjoyed a risotto with smoked eel, soupe... More

Small menu, but really good seasonal choices. Really well presented and every course was delicious, service was fab, good wine choice and fantastic value too. It is only 5 minutes walk out of town, but definitely worth heading out of the town centre for a meal here. 5* One of the day meals I've ever had in Chamonix

We were looking forward to this, given the other excellent reviews of this place. The ambiance is nice (despite it's questionable location) and the owner/host is extremely affable, but the food was a major miss! Everything lacked flavour - poor produce I think accounted partly for this but it seems there's a chef that just doesn't understand flavour in the... More

Some good twists on traditional ideas. I would advise going to this place just to get away from the standard fare in the centre. I would imagine elements of the menu change and the set menu price makes it simpler to get on with just enjoying the food and atmosphere.

Good French food with nice service at good enough English. Tastes were good, but not so much to kids' taste. Adults liked very much, maybe some little was missing compared to expectations about Chamonix's best restaurant.
