Wonderful evening, filled with entertainment

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.

We were expecting this restaurant to be slightly stuffy, given it is two star Michelin rated, and set in lovely manicured grounds, but the staff here were down to earth while still providing fantastic service. The food was delicious, with plenty to choose from. They even have a special set menu which you could choose from which looked like amazing... More

We recently had dinner here with our multigenerational family of 8, ages from 16 to 76. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner and dining experience that will not soon be forgotten. The restaurant lived up to its 2 Michelin stars and now ranks up near the top of our own personal list which our family started 8-9 years ago vying for... More

On our last night in Chamonix, we decided to see if that had space at the last minute, which they did (although perhaps barely, we didn't see any unused tables by the time we left). The restaurant is beautiful, the service was impeccable, and the food outstanding. We had the "petite fete gourmande" menu, which was both reasonably priced (for... More

My husband researched the best gourmet restaurants in town for my birthday and came up with this one. It was a top notch experience. We did the "La Maison de Savoie" tasting menu with the wine pairings. It came out to 12 courses counting what they gave us at the bar. Each course is petite, so while it sounds like... More

I was a little nervous about visiting such a prestigious restaurant, but any worries about it being stuffy or uncomfortable evaporated as soon as we were welcomed into the hotel. Firstly, the staff are exceptional and manage to balance discrete attention and friendliness with the utmost professionalism; I know it's a cliché, but our needs were anticipated before we even...

We shared the dinner with a group of friends and everyone was very pleased with our meal. The lamb I had would melt in your mouth. My husband had the sweetbreads and would have used more of the amazing bread to wipe his plate if possible. Save room for desert and the cheese cart.

When one turns sixty - what the heck. A two star Michelin. About 14 tables and app 75% seating on a Sunday night. A very warm, but a little bitt stiff (?) welcome and atmosphere which loosened as the evening went on. When you have nine courses you can't like them all. And so it was this time too.The oyster...

My friend recommended the Albert 1er to me - . The accommodations are good and the food is spectacular. Some of us were literally in tears at the quality. This was a meal deserving of the best Pauillac's - La Tour and Graves similar to the 1961 or the 1989 Chateau Haut Brion. An appropriate place from which to experience... More
