“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We recently read about this restaurant on Chamonet and looked at the Trip Advisor reviews and thought we would give it a go. Not really sure why we had not heard of it or noticed it before. The food and the service were great and we left having thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We will definitely return.

“Superb. What a find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

This place looks unassuming, but don't be fooled. The food is absolutely brilliant with good size servings. The service was just right - not too pushy and there when you need them. Very reasonably priced as well. So good we went 2 nights in a row

“Lovely Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We chose to eat at La Petite Kitchen during our two-week stay in Chamonix after sampling the fare at a number of other local restaurants. I wish we had discovered it sooner! The food was fresh, creative (especially for the region) and beautifully presented and the service was excellent. I would especially recommend the desserts (loved the white chocolate mousse - light and nicely accented with fresh berry compote). My only criticism has to do with the children's plate. My eight-year-olds ordered the sausage with French fries and beans. The meal came with a drink and ice cream for 15 euro. While it was a better deal than feeding them an adult-size portion of food they were unlikely to eat (and so we appreciated the option), the sausage tasted like breakfast sausage and the meal was, overall, rather bland and uninspired. Nevertheless, the kids enjoyed the experience -- and we would definitely return to this restaurant when in the area!

“Delicious and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

We arrived just after opening at 19h and were able to get an outdoor seat without reservation, very friendly staff. The restaurant quickly filled, and I guess would be quite normal as there are about 12 tables. The fish of the week was a wonderful Salmon, with cherry tomatoes and potatoes, with a light sauce. The roasted chicken was good, just a very slight bit dry, both otherwise wonderful. The starters were perfect, a simply raw salmon on warm toasted wholegrain bread, and a light salad. Very nice place, and very friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back again.

“Lovely Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

What a lovely dinner we had tonight at Le Petite Kitchen. The food was fantastic - from the ameuse gueule through to the wonderful deserts. We had two small children with us (5 and 8) and they finished everything on their plates. The service was wonderful. What a lovely find! Would rank well in any major city - so nice to find it hidden away in Chamonix.
