Walked in without having booking. Even thought it was a Sat night and busy we were seated immediately without any fuss. Food was excellent. Modern and imaginative. Service couldn't have been better. Have paid a lot more for lower quality food with poor service. Can't recommend high enough !!!

We were a group of six who dined here over the Xmas/New Year period. The staff were very friendly, and the food was superb. I would have rated this 5 if it had been a little faster in service. Something seemed to have been confused in the kitchen as we did wait for almost an hour for our entree (as... More

It has potential but needs a lot of improvement both in service and food they serve. Starters were good although we found a hair in one of the soups. Main course was way delayed and not good.

We had a perfect dinner, we ordered and starter and main course that taste and presentation were really haute-cuisine, they also brought an intermediate dish and we didn't order desserts but they gave us a not that small try of the them. The service is also very nice and the ambient elegant, quite and spacious. Everything for 35€ per person.... More

I keep hearing this place has a micheline star however I must say I have my doubts. The meal was excellent as well as the service. However I must say it was missing the details to be a micheline restaurant in my eyes. They did not pressent all dishes when they arrived at the table, wine was not refilled systematically,... More

This restaurant is has a modern decor. I ate at this restaurant for breakfast (as part of the hotel stay) and it was a good buffet meal--nothing memorable but good, but not really worth the 15€ per person. Although I understand the dinner is good but I cannot speak to that.

Staying in the Hotel Morgane made the decision to dine at it's in-house restaurant Le Bistrot a no-brainier. However that wasn't the only reason - it also came up trumps in reviews. Don't be put off by the fact it's no longer a Michelin star restaurant. This place is all class and a real treat despite being very affordable at... More

We visited Le Bistrot last night as we wandered around Chamonix realising that most restaurants close in the off season. We hit the jackpot here, had no reservation however we were treated like royalty and our French waiter Thomas was just outstanding, so friendly and such wonderful service. The service was as marvellous as the meal. We had the 21euro... More
