This used to be my absolute favorite restaurant while living in Chamonix two years ago. So I returned with very high expectations. The changes made to the dining area were nice. Unfortunately changes in the menu did not please at all. No fixed price 3-course menu with interesting options anymore. I also missed the amazing soups they served before as... More

Popped in for brunch after shopping at the farmers market it was a very pleasant experience beautiful British fry up breakfast and cake to die for. We haven't been for an evening meal year but will do :-)

We have been in this restaurant every time we went to Chamonix for the last 4 years and it has always been excellent. This time however they changed the menu, so it is much more focused on steaks. But the steaks were average quality, really chewy. Everything else: veggie pies, fish, pork ribs, sides, deserts — amazing. In my opinion,... More

Hyped up for some reason. Steaks weren't anything special and chips were soggy. Staff tried to make amends by doubling the portion of chips but they weren't better. Staff was very friendly though.

We couldn't fault the food and service we received at La Petite Kitchen. The vegetarian options of Winter Root Vegetable Salad and the Spinach and Cheese Strudel were excellent, as were the side orders of fries and pan-fried mushrooms. The New York Cheesecake was also delicious! The waitress was super-friendly and helpful and overall we had a great evening out.

I've always enjoyed European food and have always been partial to a bocadillo or two and love a glass of Don Simon but this place was incredible. The food was out of this world and wouldn't have been out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. The service was great and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Will be... More

A group of 8 and none of us would go back unless things change dramatically. very little choice on the menu and the only fish only it should have been deleted. Not the price bracket advertised on trip advisor. Service would have been fine if we hadn't been pushed for more side dishes than we could eat and 8 peoples... More

The restaurant was empty and perhaps we should have realised an alternative destination would've been a good idea. The fish smelt putrid and tasted bad but the waitress insisted it was good. Steak was good but the chips were soagy and the broccoli was grossly overlooked. The chichi plate mouse would have been better if they purchased it from the... More

Unfortunately I have to respond to this person which is something I wouldn't normally do. The fish in question was bought in the morning of this review, was also served to 3 other customers without any issue and was perfectly fresh. We have never and would never serve any product that was not fresh. Unfortunately it seems this customer simply... More
