The restaurant is located right on the water and it is nice to have a water view. But we were seated inside the dining room and it was hot and stuffy late on Friday night. But the food was delicious.

We were lucky that they could accommodate us for dinner, although we went a tad early by French standards (730PM). We were seated immediately and the waitstaff could not have been more welcoming.

Back again this year. Normally, I have the Tornedos Rossini, but this year tried the fillet. Very good! Service was great (as usual). It may have the best location in Chamonix on the River Arve. Get a window seat if you can!

this restaurant used to be better, almost Michelin star. Food and service less quality now, but this is reflected in price.

Ask for a table by the window as you will be looking at a small river flowing by, very pleasant indeed. Food was very enjoyable and service top notch.

We had dinner in this centrally located riverside restaurant on our ski holiday in Chamonix. Welcoming staff, wonderful butternut soup with deep flavours, and all other dishes were excellent. They found room for us at late notice. Highly recommended.
