Fantastic, special place. It is beyond "quaint". We took a 7 mile walk from Chamonix and we happened upon this restaurant. While we didn't stay there, we found out about the option of being driven to and from our hotel if you have dinner there. We had a gastronomical dinner. The food is 5 star! Everyone sits at one large table that faces the kitchen. Watching the 2 chefs preparing the food adds to the experience. This restaurant and hotel are not to be missed! Very special!
