We go every year, fantastic oysters and seafood. Would likely not eat dinner based on reviews but these french oysters are far better than those found in the states. But pricey.

We ordered the oysters to start. Although they took 35 mins to arrive, they were excellent. For man course we had the free range chicken, which was very dry, and the suckling pig, which was much better. Overall, the food was ok...but not really worth the high cost (200€ for our family of 2 adults and 4 children).To be fair,... More

Came here for a celebration meal and it didn't disappoint. The fresh sea food platters were delicious and once ordered food came fast. Good choice of wines to go with the foods too. The pear sorbet was delicious but the pear liquor with it was overpowering. Only thing that stopped it getting a 5 star was the service was a... More

We chose this place for dinner for 5 people as we wandered hungrily around Chamonix. Everything started off wonderfully, when they brought out this lovely salad to one of us! Then, no food for approximately 1.5 hours. Other people got their food, but not us! They informed us that it was the kitchen's fault, that something had broken. Eventually I... More

We arrived in town late at night and wanted something to eat. Not much was open and this restaurant looked nice and was near our hotel. My husband and I both ordered the Caesar salad with chicken. We were a bit surprised that the chicken was breaded and appeared to be fried but was most likely microwaved. My husband's was... More

This is a lovely place to have a meal sat out in Chamonix. Choose your table carefully and you have an atmospheric mountain view. The food itself was perfectly enjoyable, but nothing special so if you want a treat for your taste buds, then I'd suggest you look elsewhere!

A great restaurant. We chose the house speciality cheese fondue. Really excellent service and guidance from Sophie including choosing a great wine to accompany the fondue. Must do this again!! :-)

Busy touristy restaurant, we were eating late and had no wifi to check TA first! I ordered the veggie soup, it tasted like watered down baby food with a heap of salt added accompanied by stale bread. Hubby had the burger which was average also...weird flavour combo. We should have skipped dinner that night. The service was poor, once our... More
