This restaurant is right in the main street of Chamonix and is a warm and incredibly quirky place, serving traditional and tasty food. My boyfriend and I had Cote de boeuf which was quite expensive but a great bit of beef with lovely dauphinoise. I would highly recommend the well seasoned and good quality piece of meat! There is plenty... More

La Caleche is always a must-go when in Chamonix. The place is very cozy, the food excellent (mostly keeping it to raclette and meat) and the service working very hard, being extremely friendly and helpful, even with a table of 20 very hungry skiers. Would recommend to everyone!

We had Christmas lunch here. It was extremely busy and service was slow. Fondue was really yummy. They forgot to order my scallop risotto, so I sat waiting while everyone else ate. They then presented me with 3 virtually raw scallops and no rice and said that was how it was supposed to be served. Other then that everyone had... More

Very cozy place to eat, good service, really good food and the best snails I have ever tried. Central but in busy times needs an advance booking.

This is a very stereotypical Alpine restaurant and we sat down for a fondue lunch. Unusually for Chamonix, the service was very very good (local staff, not run by British Hooray Henrys) so we were off to a good start immediately. The wine list was extensive without going OTT on price and the fondue was very good with plenty of... More

Nice place for families It’s a classic “Haute Savoie” restaurant , they have lots of pre-assembled menù including traditional dishes and menu for the babies too. Interior design is traditional and they could host lots of guests , they have an upper , ground and under-ground level anyway reservation is suggested. Prices are an average for Chamonix area
