We ran into this restaurant by chance when every others had simply no table for us because we didn't reserve. We liked it so much that we actually returned for another dinner on the next day. This place wasn't a fine dining but a lively, lovely, home-feeling place. Big smiles on all the young and energetic waiters' faces (I found... More

So, picked this place randomly today for lunch, the menu looked ok. Sat near the middle of the restaurant where it felt like we were always in the way of staff who were running, disorganized and stressed. They made a mistake with our orders: the steak was extremely rare instead of medium rare, and my tartare was slightly cooked instead... More

There is plenty of choice, but most dishes contain cheese. I ordered pizza, it was very disappointing. The other dishes seemed better, but overall not the best experience of the weekend.

The food here was really heavenly. I had their chicken wrapped in italian ham in reblochon and potato gratin. Very heavy and very filling, it's a perfect meal after an exhausting skiing trip or a whole morning of shopping in Chamonix. For dessert, I had a cappucino with 3 mini-desserts. We kind of overstayed but they did not mind. The... More

We ran into this restaurant coincidentally and were satisfied at any point. The atmosphere is calm and comforting, the waiter is very helpful and fast and the food is absolutely delicious. Definitely worth a try

We had a lovely meal, very good service with friendly staff and good value. Duck and lamb were cooked as we requested and were excellent. Nice garden at the back or tables outside and inside.

Our group of 7 (adults and children) had lunch here and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant's decor is classic Alpine throughout - wooden panelling with endless trinkets, pictures and assorted bric-a-brac covering every surface. The menus offer an enormous range of dishes, including regional dishes as well as more standard fare for the more conservative diner. The service was... More

Good local food and service. had a nice reblochon au four with potatoes and salad. Good and local. nicely located too, with a terrace and garden, it's a little away from the very touristy and packed area, and close to the Montenvers train and Jazz club

Chamonix is a charming but rather expensive town and this restaurant offers a repetitive menu without any particular distinction. It is true that the decor is interesting, the ambience lively and the staff friendly. We indulged in the evening fixed 3-course menu and a vegetarian curry. We mostly enjoyed the "mise en bouche" — wholemeal bread with vinaigrette and a... More

Visited a number of times and generally speaking the food is good. However, when in France we book our table in French, speak French to the staff but perhaps they just assume because our French is not perfect they insult us by answering in English and handing us a very badly translated English menu. Regardless of how many times we... More
