Stunning place, really cozy and great food. Excellent service but we were surprised about the bill. We thought it was way too expensive...

Excellent accueil, une fondue savoyarde totalement satisfaisante! A fantastic dining place so Savoyard and full of historic souvenir - just like a museum.

Incredible menu. Incredible vintage alpine decor. It is as if one goes back in time when they escalated Mont Blanc for the first time!

Away from home on business trip - a good dinner. A pleasant atmosphere, nice service tasty and big dishes. The predefined menus have a reasonable price. A good choice restaurant. Not a "must come back".

We were overwhelmed by the great alpine decor at the restaurant. Although the place is rather large, the atmosphere is cosy. We had raclette for two and were given our own half cheese plus heater and we had a great time eating. Service was very attentive.

In a great mountain atmosphere! It is a large restaurant but very busy so you are advised to book, even for lunch. We arrived at 1.15pm for lunch and had to wait for 15 minutes which was fine. We had the classic dish of potato, bacon and melted cheese and the wild boar terrine which was outstanding. With 3 glasses... More

Ate here on our last night in Chamonix last Monday. Were served by Aurélie who was perfectly charming. The décor is beautiful and the restaurant is quite big, so I would recommend reserving.
