Great Friendly Place w/Good Food

I have eaten at the OB many times over the years and it is a great place. The owner (Dave) is a fantastic guy who makes everyone feel welcome. It is a hangout for locals and tourists alike, who want to avoid 'touristy' food, and the lousy service like you find in some CHX restaurants. Dave stays... read more

A really good option if you want change of pace. Great food combined with a very convivial Aussie host helped make this a very enjoyable dining spot. The burgers are top notch and the overall ambience is a break from manic Cham.

We ate here for 3 nights July 2015. Very friendly staff. Big portions. The wings were the best we'd ever had and the nachos were great, the large portion was more than enough for 2. We had the Office Burger , Jerk Chicken and chicken and chips for main, all recommended. The chips are especially good.

The Office is the busiest and best casual bar and restaurant in Argentiere without doubt. Great bar in post ski,walking or biking or indeed late at night. Staff and the venue are extremely accommodating for families too. The steaks, fish dishes and salads are great,but it's without doubt that the nachos and ribs are the food you will come back...

This is the busiest bar in Argentiere. There's always a friendly welcome, good honest menu, sports on TV and sometimes bands or DJs. It's a happy mix of local, expat seasonnaires and holiday makers.

Went in on a recommendation and ordered fish & chips. The portion of food was big enough to serve a small family, having said that, the fish had absolutely zero flavor and was heavily battered. The fries were large potato chunks that were over cooked and the peas tasted like they were fresh out of a can to include the... More

Very warm welcome. Good food and good wifi. Excellent atmosphere especially when a big sporting event is on, I watched an England France rugby match here, England lost. I consider it as my local when I'm in Argentiere.

Good for a beer outside on a sunny day. Forget lunch... I had a hamburger it was really ordinary. Service is also very laid back, too laid back for my liking.

As a solo diner I prefer to sit at bar or a quiet corner. I certainly do not want to be seated at a table in an area which is packed full with parents and kids. My preference was certainly not greeted by staff or owner with any understanding. One particular member of staff described me as being odd (I... More

Between 5 and 6, the Office Bar runs its "Happy Hour" where you can buy a 1litre pitcher of Jupiler beer (very nice lager and with flavour!) with a huge bowl of freshly prepared nachos for 15 euros. This quenched mum and dad's thirst while sating our daughter's hunger so we could eat dinner a bit later! (So much so... More
