Popped in here for a last minute dinner. The food was fine but a bit heavy on the cheese for me. Not sure if I would return but a perfectly pleasant meal.

We ate at Le Monchu for dinner. We started with a salad and for dinner had the traditional raclette. Everything we ate was good and the service was great.

We loved this restaurant. It was our favourite out of a weeks worth of dining out in Chamonix. We loved the hot coals in the fire box that came to melt the raclette at our table. It was so fun and delicious. The hot stone...More
