An excellent choice after a day's skiing. The restaurant is family run and the food is delicious, very much a hearty home cooked traditional Savoyard menu.

I ate there once and the food was fine. It's what you may expect in a ski resort, such as wooden tables and chairs etc. The only downside is that its always closed. I visit Chamonix 5 or 6 times a year, and sadly it...More
