This is a very elegant restaurant. Everything is done to perfection. The service is amazing as well as the food. It's really an A+ for me. I cook a lot and love to eat and this restaurant really stood out.

My husband and I visited in December 2014 and did the spa and lunch package for 75euros. We spent a relaxing the morning in the lovely spa which has an outdoor heated pool with views of Mont Blanc. The package included lunch at the gourmet restaurant. We expected that this would just be a standard two course lunch but we... More

Went there for the New Year Eve party. The food was good although I liked the one from Le Bistrot better. Staff was very attentive and cared about our experience. If I was to make any suggestions I would say just that they should be more careful about filling the glasses as I needed to call them at least 3... More

We paid over a hundred Eros per person for two courses. At this price we expected some creativity, but there wasn't any. The dishes were boring and average. There was no vegetarian dish. If you want a lot of show off go there, if you want good food don't.

This was meant to be a highlight meal during our stay in Chamonix but we had a less than satisfactory experience. The ambience was stuffy, the service appalling (only the sommelier made some effort to converse with us, the other staff looked like it was the last place they wanted to be), and the food was pretty average. By the... More

Had a great Lunch with friends, unbelievable cheese and dessert cart. We had set menus which had wine pairings, but we had to remind the waiters to bring the wine (s). When the bill came, we were double billed for all wines (a $120 mistake!!)

Had the gourmand menu, at €85 we got a fantastic meal, with huge portions. The veals rump is probably the most tasty and tender meat I've ever had. The food is regional, nicely presented, yet simple and unpretentious. The sommelier came up with some really good wines, and along with the friendly and helpful waiters we had a wonderful evening....

This restaurant deserves its stars. The meals are exquisite, from the original amuses-bouches to the fabulous cheese tray and the two trolleys of desserts, one with ice creams and fresh fruits, the other with pastries and iles flottant. In between, you will get several courses of fish and meat and vegetables that are done to perfection. The restaurant grows all... More

I will admit, we were disappointed with this restaurant. The menu was good, but not nearly as creative as it could have been and it was very expensive. I want to peruse a menu and have selections that make it difficult to choose, not back into a course because I must selection one. We dined at the sister restaurant on... More

We visited the Albert 1er Restaurant whilst staying at the hotel which we very much enjoyed. The restaurant had a nice relaxed atmosphere with attentive waitors. The food tasted good but was not surprising or creative as one would expect from a 2-starred Michelin restaurant. We rather felt that the kitchen was stuck in the 80s. The dishes were unbalanced...
