Thought we would check this out based on it's reviews and we were pleased. The interior is a cozy Alpine decor with low ceilings and pine walls. The food is fairly priced for the quality you recieve everything very fresh.Some original recipies with novel presentation. A good experience, would go back.

Had a lovely dinner here. Decor is lovely and very alpine in a warm and cozy. The food is simply delicious, with subtle flavoring that you discover as you are eating it. Had a salad appetizer and salmon entree, which was wonderful. Did I mention the bread is outstanding (hard, crusty country rolls) and the chef's surprise was a fresh... More

The restaurant was recommended by a local who knows his way around with eating (his belly is the best proof!). The key features of Le Panier des 4 Saisons were of twofold: the food is excellent and it has the cleanest kitchen in any restaurants in chamonix. We have been there three times now - in different years - and... More

I have been to this place a few times during my stays in Chamonix, summer and winter, last time on New Year's Eve 2013. The service is very friendly and personal. Most times it has been very quiet and comfortable. Last time, on New Year's Eve, there was a big table with about 20 guests, some of them quite loud.... More

Fantastic food, really!!! From the outside, the restaurant looks very simple, wooden tables, not pretentious, nothing special. But the food... WOW! That was really fantastic! Simple, tasty, delicious! Service is efficient, very nice, polite, and efficient. One of the best meals in the last months!! Only disadvantage... The price. But you are in Chamonix, I would not expect much cheaper... More

I don't usually write reviews so i'll be short and sweet -appetizers and mains were ok, although consistently underseasoned -dessert panacotta was excellent -wine selection was passable -service was poor. We had a table of 10 loud obnoxious, rude and crude neighbors that completely disrupted the entire restaurant. Only at the end was there even recognition that this might have... More

This tucked-away restaurant, up a lonely staircase, and inside a business building, is perhaps the greatest culinary find in Chamonix. The new chef spun gold out of the salmon entree, and even the amuse bouche was superb. The setting is nouveau Alpine, with the rustic wood and late 19th-century photos of mountain climbers, combined with contemporary music (Nouvelle Vague). The... More

We were in Chamonix during the height of French vacation as well as it being a special event the weekend we came here. This restaurant was a lovely find and great recommendation from our hotel. It's close to the main strip and center of Chamonix but tucked away. There's only about 15-18 tables so you must reserve, but this provides... More

When we tried to come for dinner, the reservations were fully booked, which made us expect something good. And yes, it was fantastic. Some people say that it's the standard French food, but that was why we liked it more. We especially liked the meat and the pepper sauce on it. Also, it has a cozy atmosphere. It's a great... More

The food at Le Panier is outstanding in every way - fresh, top-quality ingredients, cooked to perfection. The server provided spot-on recommendations for champagne and wine to accompany our meal. The menu has a nice mix of classics and innovative dishes. I highly recommend the Ravioles de Chèvre Frais, Fondue de Poireaux, Beurre Léger au Parmesan. My partner had the... More
