What a delightful find in Chamonix! Delicious freshly prepared food using seasonal ingredients, quiet square a little off the beaten track. Well-worth the short walk from the centre, good value and friendly too. Our group thoroughly enjoyed it.

Lunch in Chamonix on our way to Italy. Small and unpretentious restaurant; plat de jour was fish&chips, which was a big piece of fish with good chips. The price was 14,90 including a nice dessert.

My wife and I sampled breakfast twice at this cozy place near the Place Mt Blanc. Wonderful food accompanied by great service. What could be better? On our first visit we complimented them on their Johnny Cash CD - & they responded by turning up the volume -who would have thought hearing "Ring of Fire" for breakfast in the middle... More

Been a regular since the beginning. Just returned from another great night. Duck to start and steak for main followed up with awesome cheesecake. Unbeatable quality, value for money and great staff.

Yet another Chamonix classic that's now to be avoided, due to terrible customer service. It's like a trend - English run fantastic, then the owners start hiring the wrong staff and it gets stroppy... finally the owners themselves get stoppy, the locals go elsewhere, by then the rating on TripAdvisor is so high the tourists still flock there. Technology failure?

After being in the mountains, a good hearty breakfast was in order and this place delivered excellently! A full English breakfast (with proper sausages and bacon) and large pot of coffee certainly did the trick. Great food at great value and certainly deserves it's place in the top 10 establishments for food in Chamonix. I'll certainly be returning to this... More

We were staying in an apartment beside this restaurant and decided to check it out for dinner, knowing nothing about it. We were very very pleasantly surprised. Supper (lamb and steak) was delicious and the desserts truly excellent - special mention for the chocolate mousse which was a work of art. We thought it was a *bit* overpriced (18 E... More
