We have dined in this restaurant several times during our stay in Chatel and it has always been a lovely experience. The staff are really attentive and the food has always been great. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the whole experience is first class. You feel that they really care about the food and also about you. They... More

We turned up at the hotel only to be told that they could not find our booking which I had made on the telephone some days in advance. I was worried that they would turn us away but the lady on reception was most hospitable and worked quickly to explain the format for the evening and to find us a... More

The food was really good and the menu changed each day. Set prices of 25 euros for one course or 30 for two courses (some supplements applied). A good wine list from 20 euros to 500 euros a bottle! We ate in the hotel restaurant 3 evenings out of 4.

Chatel is traditionally re known for its Savoyard dishes of Cheese and Meat, but the Macchi offers so much more than this and for quality and effort it is a reasonable price. Those hosting, particularly Iount (hope spelt correctly), are very warm and friendly and extremely polite and professional. The menu was varied and food we ordered extremely tasty, and... More

Hotel Macchi is a 4 star hotel. Having aperitive in the lounge is very pricey but very cosy. Then the buffet for lunch with deer civet for the adults and savoyard burger for the children, after great choice of starters with meat, cheese and even seafood.

Ok so this restaurant is not for everyday - the menus are €40 plus unless you have the daily special which is prepared principaly for hotel clients - good but meagre portions. Ok for my wife but I have left still feeling I could have eaten more. But the service and attention to detail is second to none. The Cerf... More

This is supposed to be a top notch restaurant, and in to a certain extent it is. However, the last couple of years they seem to put less effort in coaching their staff in a fashion you would expect from a restaurant on a 4 star hotel. My latest experience was this year and unfortunately not a pleasant one. The... More
