A bit more formal than most places in Chamonix, you will still feel comfortable in jeans and boots. Food was quite good, but the service was a bit slow.More

Last day in Chamonix and following a trip to the Aiguille du Midi we came back down for lunch. Really well priced set menu for lunch. Service a bit clunky as it was a young lad who seemed out of his depth, but would still...More

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...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...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.More

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.More

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...More
