We visited L'Atmosphere twice during our last visit to Chamonix. Both times were lovely, Black truffles were in season, so we both began with their Scrambled eggs with Truffles (really really good) which we followed with braised beef cheek in red wine & cod in an asian broth. Simply delicious. Service was friendly & attentive. Cant fault it, really.

Me and my fiancée enjoyed a lovely dinner here eating the evenings set menu. We enjoyed it. The service and atmosphere in the beautiful riverside room made it special. The food was just good. We had the set menu which is considerably cheaper than considering three seperate courses. We had the hot stone meat platter for main which knocked the... More

Having dined here in the past I knew it would be busy so I reserved a table. The staff are exceptional - I have seldom encountered such efficiency, politeness and helpfulness. The dinner was very good indeed, but not memorable. If they could just improve the gastronomic experience a little, this would be a truly exceptional establishment. I was pleased... More

We try and come here once when skiing in Chamonix with friends. The setting is excellent and the food consistently good. Last night was very good. We had a nice corner table overlooking the river. I started with the langoustine ravioli. It's an old favourite though my friend's salad Atmosphere looked REALLY good. A few of us had rack of... More

We are here as a large group and I have to say there was some top notch food in the place, the truffle dishes on special we're particularly amazing! Great steaks and lamb as well, and as you'd expect in France, a fantastic wine list. The price of spirits was the only let down, about €10 for a vodka &... More

Always very good quality here, we had another great meal in the New Year. The service is very professional too, though it needs to be because of their two-sittings policy.

Cheesy, but not enough to overpower the excellent wine selection and choice beef, duck and other delectable offerings. Oh, you want desert - prepare yourself for continued excellence and enjoy the night as the brook babbles outside the babbling dining room...

We have eaten in this restaurant several times and the food is amazing and the atmosphere "relaxed formal". We have eaten here with family and friends including with small children and the food is great and the service friendly and nice. My only niggle about this restaurant is that during the winter months they have two sittings, the sitting at... More
