My wife and I have been coming to The Office Bar for several years on our summer visits to Argentiere. We used it most days last week, either for meals or simply for a drink/coffee. It is best described as an expat oasis in this area and it clearly has a loyal following among the cosmopolitan expat population of the... More

We have been customers of the Office for probably more than 20 years! We were passing through this evening & decided to have dinner there (for old times sake !?) Nowadays we travel as a family, which obviously forces us to economise as much as possible. My 12 yr old son was experiencing a sudden & terrible onslaught of losing... More

The Office has a good atmosphere and seems to be where the ex pats come to drink and do business deals. It is very informal. The beer is good and the food is good with huge portions. We've eaten here a few times and have no complaints. Staff friendly welcoming and helpful.

I'm often here in winter; and the bar always has a great atmosphere, often with live music, and a good mix of visitors and locals (some locals have a bottle of shots mixed for them with their name on it. how cool is that?). In July I visited in summer for lunch. They'd done some work and put a nice... More

The Office Bar might not make it to the Michelin Guide but it is good honest food, well cooked & presented. The wine list is pretty short but the house wines are fine - 4 adults and 2 children ate & drank well for 93 Euros - what's not to like? The service would shame most of the restaurants out... More

This is probably one of the worst places we have eaten at for several years. Prefabricated burgers for 15 Euro. The meat in the burger tasted like it was cooked a couple of days before and was basically not eatable. A person in our company had the pulled pork sandwich but the meat also tasted like it was cooked several... More

Great sunny spot so very popular in the afternoon. Good homemade food and the staff are wonderful. As it is towards the end of the season some things on the menu were not available. It appeared that the selection of beers was quite vast too!
