Chamonix is a town or maybe a city...with a lot of surprises. I adore the mountain kitchen and we just arrive in the night, but no problem, the staff was very friendly and organize a table before the kitchen close. The menu, the selection of dishes, the respect for the french Alps kitchen, and the wines (selection of red wines)... More

an earlier reviewer used the word 'nice' to describe this restaurant and that sums it up - unexciting but enjoyable. The food was a bit heavy after a week of lighter, fresher food in Southern Italy but that was partly down to what we ordered. Good location and fascinating watching the river flow by below us. (There's a gallery where... More

We had a nice meal at a great table overlooking the river. Fish special was excellent & enjoyed the hot stone cooking. The potatoes au gratin were amazing!

We've come to Chamonix for the trip up to Mont Blanc and it was Spectacular! We wanted to end this trip with a meal of the same caliber. Ok, maybe nothing can match the mountain, but the food here is worth the trip. Definitely sit on the terrace over the River! Very nice ambiance! The food was great. Three of... More

Went for a dinner here. Overall good food and pleasant experience. In terms of dining be aware that you can get tables next to the river - but they seem to be highly in demand - so make sure you request that specifically if you make a reservation

The food is nice (but not amazing). The service is standard nothing special. I would eat there again but not for a special occasion! There are much better restaurants in Chamonix for that.

We went there last night for a fondue. Great location! Try to get the table by the window with river view. Food was not bad but service very average. As soon we said we're quite full and all we want is fondue no wine etc. we stopped existing for staff.

We were at L'Atmosphere twice in 2012 and the food was truly outstanding. So good you would want to come back to Chamonix just for another dinner there. Now coming back in August 2014 we were somewhat disappointed. Food was still good, but had lost its special touch. Nothing spectacular and absolutely missing the "wow" if had two years back.... More

If the interior hadn't been exactly the same, I would have thought I was in a different place to the last time I visited. The food wasn't a patch on last year and extremely mediocre. The service was frosty with an obviously unhappy waiter. So it was without surprise, later that evening, when our hotel told us that the chef... More

First of all, this restaurants name is great because the atmosphere was truly great. The food was very nice and the meal I ordered was extremely fun because i cooked the meat right in front of me. The cod was not as good as other meals but everything else was excelent. Great view of the river!
