We occasionally had coffee at Josephine on our arrival day and decided to return in the evening for oysters. And we ended up spending half of our dinners there though we normally prefer to try different places. Great choice of oysters, seafood and traditional French cuisine. Especially good were foie-gras, scallops with chest nut purée, onion soup, burger and crepes (according to our kids) And best cream-brûlée in the valley, for sure! Nice touch - branded Villeroy&Boch china. Walls of the cafe are decorated with great old pictures of the resort. Service speed is absolutely ok for cafe situated on the most busy and tourist street in town.
We visited also a few Michelin-recommended places in Chamonix and after comparing them with Josephine believe it’s definitely worth a higher rating on Tripadvisor!

Enjoyed a nice meal with a bottle of wine and shared a pleasant crème brûlée with espressos. Service was good enough. Various servers that tended were suitably friendly. There seemed to be a number of French folk dining too, either straight from the slopes or not. The location allowed for some enjoyable people watching, always a bonus. Tip: most shell fish in French spots is served cold. Here the only warm shellfish is the lobster and after suggesting it the server returned with the disappointing news that they were out. Never the less the fish dishes we had were nice.

Stopped here for aperitifs .. had kir royals and a plate of local charcuterie and cheeses. Not the cheapest of places but you pay for the ambience. Beautiful old building, very traditional decor.
Worth at least one visit for a drink whilst in chamonix.

We walked up and down all of Chamonix, and at the end picked this place for lunch on a Sunday in mid-March at 1:30pm. The seating outside was absolutely picturesque, as well as indoors. We sat outside as inside was full, but they had heated lamps outside so it was ok. The service was just fine, even though we only spoke English. Food was also very tasty. Prices were reasonable- around 12 euro for salads and 10 euro for sandwiches.
