We lived in geneva and go regularly to chamonix. We had one of the worst experiences ever in a restaurant. We ordered fondue aux tomates (my favorite fondue!) and pierrade and the fondue was just... Horrible!!!!! The pan was half liquid and half a cheese mass that looked like chewing gum. I complained and the lady told me that it... More

Raclette au feu du bois unique in Chamonix, excellent fondue and various kind of meat. Patricia is the perfect host, always finds a table for you and your friends and celebrates your venue.

We had a party of 7 and ordered a variety of foods. My wife had the fondu and loved it. 3 of us ordered the meat grill. It was fantastic and also a lot of fun to cook each piece as you went along. Great wine list and excellent service. Located right in the middle of town.

Very cozy restaurant right in the middle of town with delicious fondue! I had the one with tomatoes and potatoes and it was by far the best meal that I had all weekend for a decent price. There were loads of more traditional dishes to choose from and it was a plus that a local recommended us to go eat... More

Their traditional 'au feu de bois' raclette is just great: you get a thick slice of local cheese which you have to melt by ways of a grill with burning coal which the waiter puts on you table. This is what I call 'an experience'! The restaurant is cozy and charming and the waitress a nice, hearty person.

As they say, "dans un cadre rustique, avec ses specialites savoyardes et sa cuisine traditionelle." Right in the middle of Chamonix and so close to everything is Le Sanjon. Indoors or out, it is a perfect place for lunch in the sun. The menu is extensive and the daily specials very good. There was just one waiter but he was... More
