We ate here twice during our stay in Chamonix and liked the food here. It's not authentic food necessarily but they have a pretty varied menu. Also, service is quick, especially considering other restaurants in the area that take 3-4 hours for a simple dinner!...More

Really nice unusual venue with lots of ambience and good service. We had a good meal of the usual European fare. A friend and I shared the raclette which was enormous.

I agree that this isn't the place it was 2-3 years ago but it still has a great location and feel. The pizza's are still good and the nachos were really good but it's lacking the service and the buzz it used to have.

Serves a large variety of food, including several vegetarian options like vegetarian Tartiflette (a local dish normally with pork) with mushrooms instead of the pork. All food is consistently good, but not fancy. Nice pizza in a wood fired oven as well, and good garlic...More
