Class and finesse! This was my second visit and my second taster menu. Again it was fantastic and well worth the money! Don't go and skimp, there is no skimping. Yes it is expensive, but if you're a foody and you like French food (frog, snail, foie gras), then it's a culinary dream come true. In fact the snail was... More

I took my Fiancée here as a surprise for her 30th birthday and I have to say that it was exceptional right from the personal welcome and escort from the hotel lobby.

We were really impressed with Albert 1er. Beautiful atmosphere, perfect service! We had the 11-course tasting menu and it was memorable (I almost couldn't finish everything, so much food!!) but it was so delicious and so worth it! Two thumbs up!!

We stayed in the hotel over Christmas, and had a menu de la Maison de Savoie on Christmas Eve. Service was good, but unfortunately the food was not. Having eaten in about 100 Michelin starred restaurants I can say, that Albert 1er was not up to 2 star level. Food was not bad, but in Scandinavia it had not received... More

I took my girlfriend here after proposing on the slopes about 4 years ago and the food and service was exceptional. Obviously the menu is expensive if you're choosing starters and mains yourselves, so we decided to have the tasting menu. It was a culinary delight and I'll be returning in January.

To be honest, this isn't somewhere you just go for a bit of nosh. And they delivered. Filled the evening from 7pm till 11ish with a wonderful array of dishes and a fine selection of wines to go with it. Yes, it's expensive, but for a once-a-year trip I'd happily say it was worth it.
