We dined in the glass room in the back of the restaurant which overlooked the well lit river. The menu offered an extensive array of local and continental European dishes. The foie gras appetizer and rack of lamb I had were both outstanding. The lamb was cooked to perfection. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her meal as well. Service was very... More

Long one of the very best 'normal' restaurants in Chamonix, this is always good quality food and wine. Not too stuffy to cope with families and young children, either. We had a good experience overall, though my tartiflette was a bit too dry and stodgy, in contrast to my daughter-in-law's excellent one. Junior chef, maybe?

They were very accommodating when I asked to change the side of my fish and service overall was really good. The chocolate mousse with passion fruit is spectacular!! And espresso is really good and come with a yummy cookie.

This quintessential French restaurant is situated in a great place in chamonix for lunch. Great food with outstanding wine & service. Sharing a beautiful lunch with my wife was very special. They do a great set lunch meal which is changed daily.

Good food, nice atmosphere. On the negative side, the place was too crowded and the waiter wouldn't give information on the food by saying that the chef has left (it was dinner time). On the plus side, the food was good.

Our visit to l'atmosphere was splendid, a much better experience than to la telecabine the night before, by far. The service was 10/10, our waitress was absolutely splendid who was extremely attentive to our needs. She explained everything from the wine to the menu. The escargots was excellent and I highly recommend the tournedos rossini, it was to die for.... More

As their name suggests, the atmosphere of the restaurant is the highlight as it is located next to the river, allowing couples to dine with a romantic scene. We ordered the Savoyard set menu (€29) and the traditional set menu (€38) . Food is delicious, and their veal steak is our favourite - tender and perfectly medium rare. The staffs... More

This lovely restaurant is just a very short walk from the Hotel Mont Blanc. We were warmly greeted on arrival and shown to a table overlooking the river. The food was very good, we had various dishes including fish, steak and raclette, the red wine was excellent if a little too chilled for our taste however this seems to be... More

Let's start with a hint = book a table on the terrace overhanging the river. Cosy atmosphere, great view and sound of the river already make your time there unforgettable - and then the food comes... After nice starters (salad and bruschetta) we enjoyed great main courses: nicely prepared and served fish and amazing beef tartare (the best in my... More
