Whether for lunch (cheaper) or dinner/supper you will enjoy this cosy chalet offering you an excellent price quality ratio. Do not miss it if staying around. Negative point yes one: difficult to book in high season!

I have eaten at La Cremerie many times including for ice cream after a long hike (summer) and for dinner after a day in the snow (winter). The food is always fresh, delicious, and hearty. The service feels more like you are dining at the home of a friend. The dining room is very small but that just adds to... More

We skied past the entrance on the piste, so had to walk back up, but it was worth the effort. We were looked after really well, the table wasn't quite ready, but we were served beers while we waited. The food was fantastic, exactly what was need after skiing. Thoroughly recommend this place.

If you love fondu (like I do), you simply must eat here. Everything about this restaurant screams rustic and casual, but the food and overall experience is unique and truly fantastic. Stay somewhere close and walk there through the woods.

Either skiing there or walking through the woods brings you to this peaceful oasis of cheese. Simple and straightforward local cuisine that makes a perfect middle or end of the day. It is the whole experience that makes the grade - ingredients are basically cheese, Lardon and mushrooms with eggs and potatoes. But hearty for the cold champ i mountains.... More

This hut in the woods is delightfully utterly devoid of any pretension whatsoever. Which makes it genuine, atmospheric, cramped and fun. You walk there through the woods, pig out on the great food and the good news is that the path back to the village is downhill. Giving time to wonder how you really could have eaten that much cheese... More

Notre virée annuelle à la crémerie, et toujours pas déçus, on a remis ça un midi de mauvais temps. Service sympathique et très efficace. La carte reste à peu près la même, les gratins sont toujours très bons, et cette année on a testé les salades abondamment servies. Une bonne cuisine savoyarde, La ballade digestive dans la foret est un... More

This is a very cozy and simple little restaurant in the middle of the woods, very nice scenery. You can stop there for lunch when coming down the slopes, just watch out for a small sign which leads you in the woods. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, they serve local food like fondues and omelets. Food is good and... More

Good, traditional, fairytaleish in the woods laying near a glacier in the city of Argentiere near Chamonix. This restaurant serves local fondues and bread with cheese, fromage from the local valley. Its advisable to book ahead og come around 7 o clock and hope for a table. Its a house as a house in the Hans and Greta tale. Really... More
