We stayed on a very wet night while doing tour du mont blanc. They turned heating up in our room so we'd be toasty and dry our kit. The owner was an amazing host, he served us an amazing dinner n was so attentive and so charming. the price we paid was exceptional value n very little more than some... More

we only popped in for lunch rather than eating on the mountain where the choice is limited. we had two good meals with beer and wine for €40 which when you compare with places in Chamonix etc was about half price. service very friendly and relaxed with no rushing you out of the door. we only had lunch so can't...

Have not been there for 16 years, did not call or anything... Jean-Paul, the owner immediately recognized me! How can you find fault with a place like that eh?! :-) Decor is not kitsch as someone said... it's still the original seventies decor, never changed. Newfangled stuff like computers, email, internet, WIFI... missing! But that might be just the ticket... More

I succumbed to the temptations of the sun drenched terrace for lunch back in March and wasn't disappointed. The food was excellent, the service was friendly and efficient and the views across to the mountains and down the valley impressive. Prices were very reasonable so all in all a quiet and pleasant place for lunch. There's less hurly burly than... More

Parts of my family have been going to the L'Olympique for over 35 years for a couple of weeks each summer so we are perhaps biased, but have a lot of positive experiences here. We love it. It is a family run business, and the whole family are extremely friendly and obliging and most speak excellent English and Italian, and... More

This place should be a cult classic, the kind of place that exploring people seek out, then talk about afterwards. It's totally retro - because it's never been pimped up! - but totally clean with a dude of an owner, who is full of charm and character. His Dad was in the French Olympique team and he's really wry.
