This for me, offers the best dining in Chamonix. Everything from the views to the towels in the toilets is perfect. The waiters will ensure that your experience with them is all that matters, and you will have a wonderful experience there. I have been enjoying Bois Prin for many years, and if you can, then try the menu confidence.... More

This is one of the gems of Chamonix. Amazing local (as in grown outside) food, amazing service, great views, and absolutely unpretentious, which can be rare for a Michelin star restaurant!

Great dinner, one of the best me and my housband had in our lives!! All at a reasonable price - the three course menu was 50 EUR per person and we decided to get a really nice bottle of Champagne to share... all in all 200 EUR for a dinner that ended up in a lifetime experience... Small appetizers and... More

A delightful Sunday family lunch. The setting is breath-taking, nestled in the Chamonix valley. Service was exquisite, refined yet friendly. And the food, oh the food was divine, a perfect mix between taste and technique. All in all, I had the impression of being right home, but with a chef! Definitely recommend!

I travelled 4 hours by car to try this "Michelin stared" restaurant. The service was ok, the wine excellent, but the food, bland, very very disappointing. I personally now only trust Michelin with regards Italian restaurants in Italy, I have never been disappointed there.

The menu is mainly made of very well executed classic french cuisne items, the quality is first rate and the setting quite nice with dark woods and a view you cannot beat fro a fine dining venue in the valley.the prices are also quite reasonnable considering it is a 5 star hotel and a 1 michelin star rated restaurant.

Me and my fife enjoyed the restraunt and the food. It was the first time for us at a michelin restraunt, and it was great! The staff was friendly and helpful, the restraunt itself beautiful and the food was great ☺ We spent our time enjoying, so no photos... sorry!

Booked a table for 1900hrs and arrived sharp. Despite booking personally earlier in the day and requesting a veggie option for my wife, it felt like a revelation when we enquirer wha she might be eating. We were left sitting like stooges whilst the maitre d' kindled the fire and a chef arranged flowers in the darkened restaurant which was... More

We visited for my daughters 14th Birthday. We are food enthusiasts and always try to visit a michelin star restaurant wherever we travel. We booked lunch, 3 days in advance and informed them that our daughter is a vegetarian. It became obvious that no planning had really been made for this. The starter for us was Fois Gras, with a...

Where do I start? The excellent location with magnificent view on the Mont-Blanc? The charming old school deck with flowers? The professional, friendly staff that is not stiff? The talented owner working in his bio garden that could easily be mistaken for the gardener! I love this Michelin restaurant. We try to incorporate a visit to Bois Prin each trip... More
