tiny portions not very good food

Like most of the restaurants we visited in Courmayeur, we were disappointed by the food here. My lamb chops were tiny and nothing special. My starter of scallops was small with a sauce that really didn't go. The service was good and the decor nice but we didn't rate this restaurant.

We have eaten in Mont Frety on previous trips to Courmayeur and have enjoyed it. This time we were less impressed. The menu is extensive, and the food good. However the service was a bit shambolic, with tables getting food they didn't order and drinks not arriving. It was a busy Saturday night so perhaps it would be better on... More

Went to Mont Frety's but we were very disappointed with the service. Firstly we were served somebody else's starter then my main course was delivered with my wife's starter so I had to sit through her next two courses (she was having the 4 course vegetarian menu) until desert was served. Had to wait ages for our bill. In the... More

We only had dinner here once as it is a bit on the expensive side but what we had was excellent. This venue I believe is more of a special occasion place as there were not a lot of people when we had our dinner there and the people that were there tended to be in groups celebrating something.

I've submitted over 30 reviews to tripadvisor over the years and this is my first "terrible" rating. For me, a "one dot" rating requires not just a consistently poor experience but something out of the ordinary. We had one evening in Courmayeur and we wanted a gourmet meal. Unfortunately fine weather and a festival brought so many people into town... More

Just outside the pedestrian area of Courmayeur, this ristorante-pizzeria (never tried pizza) offers a cozy environment, local cuisine cooked with care and coupled with dishes from other Italian regions (sea fish included) and well presented. The wine list is not really impressive. I have eaten in this restaurant each year almost twice a year for the last 3 or 4... More

We choose the restaurant because was close to our location. The restaurant looks really nice and the staff is very friendly. The food didn't impressed me at all. Let's say it was not bad. We took a local selection for 45 euro.

The service is fairly warm, but that aside, Mont Frety is a disappointing restaurant. In short, I'd recommend taking a punt elsewhere. We were sat outside in their garden, where it would have been nice to sit back and relax. Unfortunately, my seat was already broken, and the restaurant's previous attempt to hold it together with sellotape was no more... More
