Went there last year as it was so good and this time it was even better. The 38 euro menu was sensational. I will have to go and have it again. A real highlight of the trip to chamonix.

The red tuna is outstanding, highly recommend. The restaurant has a very calm, intimate atmosphere that is enhanced by its rural decor.

The food was delicious. Interesting, exciting and very, very tasty. The beef cooked over the woodfire was incredible. Wonderful seared tuna. The prices were typical for most Chamonix restaurants, and a bargain for the quality. And this was the best place for reasonably priced wine...More

We visited Le Chaudron after a day at the slopes and all thought our food was amazing. From escargot to tuna, lamb and onglet, it was incredibly tasty. A great find in Chamonix.
