In its slope-side location, the two-Michelin-star restaurant Le 1947 reveals a refined leather-clad decor and caters to just 25 guests every evening, in a single sitting. Each season, Chef Yannick Alleno creates a series of menus, and offers the Cheval Blanc gues​ts a unique experience. Through a selection process resulting from a long investigation, he extracts the quintessence of the product and designs one-of-a-kind dishes. The restaurant's open kitchen gives a feeling of transparency, offering diners a view on the chefs at work and inviting them to step behind the scenes to add their own touch to some of the Alleno dishes.​​

remarkable experience

A total dining experience. Unequaled attention (there are five tables in the restaurant), amazing details in the food and presentation. Pricey, of course. Plan to be there for several hours. Spectacular wine, also of course.

I love good food, I love good service. This restaurant has taken both to new levels. I literally can't verbalise how good the experience was. Anyone reading this that appreciates the best of what restaurants can possibly offer you must try this restaurant. A big thank you to all if the staff there. Jon and Nickie

This was not our first visit to a restaurant at the Cheval Blanc hotel, but it was our first experience at the "restaurant gastronomic" which opened last year at this hotel. You walk into the open space architecture of the small restaurant and can not help but appreciate the unique decor. They have two versions of a tasting menu -... More

Ate here on Valentine's day, 2013. Exclusive and hip - the restaurant only has 5 tables with an open kitchen, where you are invited to walk in at will and see how the chef prepares your food. Chefs are extremely welcoming and friendly, which adds greatly to the gastronomic experience. Both Maitre'D and head chef was hospitable and international (both... More
