Great gustative experience

Stopped by for some French with the family. Though it doesn't have a family feel, owner was great with kids and prepared a special plate for them - which they loved. Sublime chicken cordon bleu and delicious assortment of cheeses. Not cheap, but worth it!

The reception lady of our hotel made a table reservation. After a 30 minutes taxi drive we arrived in a small restaurant with few tables and some french guys sitting there. One was probably the boss or owner. We told him that we have made a table reservation. He answered that they don't make table reservations and there is no... More

We ate here twice and each time the fish dishes won the highest praise from our group. Firm, perfectly cooked each time with flavorful sauces. Great service to boot.

The chicken cordon bleu was good, but this was easily one of the weirdest restaurant experiences I've ever had, anywhere. To describe the owner as "quirky" is an understatement. "Interesting" mix of patrons. 2/3 of the wines were unavailable. Bizarre place that I'll file away as "that was weird" and probably won't go out of my way to return.

A very nice portion and it was so tasty! We also had a bottle of local red wine. Surprisingly good. Thank goodness for the... More

Maybe I will try the breakfast sometime...I... More

We have for many years been visiting Chamonix in the French Alps. Visiting Refuge is exactly like being in a restaurant in Chamonix - and a good one. The food is rustic and really good. The owner is from Chambery and his wife a Vietnamese are both lovely people who together have created this little lovely restaurant. I believe there... More

The owner was very attentive to our questions and gave us great service. This is one of the best meals we have had in Vietnam. Everything was exceptional - but the ostrich filet with red wine sauce was the highlight. We also enjoyed the forest crepe.
