I live in the valley and I’m the customer who keep these places ticking over in low season, for lunch and coffees. Today I was told to move twice by someone who has the worst manners I have ever experienced. I know this is a...busy place but it was empty, lacking some sense was also evident. If you need a table people are cool to move once you use some professionalism and offer an alternative. Pity I really like the food but I’m done.More

Good situation next to ski resort Grands Montets. Very good meat. We ordered some burgers done differently, but we got burgers cooked at the same point… we asked to more cooking time for a couple of them, after an unacceptable delay they served the burger...at same initial cooking point...Furthermore we tried to customize hamburger ingredients: misunderstanding... more delays…Finally we accepted wrong restaurant choice…no more complaints, just eat, at the end meal tastes good when you are hungry.More

Seriously unprofessional. Their lousy team had me seated twice at different tables inside the restaurant during rush hour. Twice they asked me if I was there for lunch, and twice I responded I was just there for drinks. In both instances it was clearly confirmed...as OK. We sat, they took our order and five minutes later the so-called manager waltzed in there and said no that he had to seat us somewhere else once more because he only takes lunch. So he offered to walk us to another table. He literally wanted to have us seat outside after I had been seated for minutes with my order taken, I told him no way. Then he said no deal and we just walked away. See that’s the problem with monopoly, people think you will just accept whatever. We crossed the slope, literally 30 meters away there is an other place with equal food better service and pleasant staff so do yourself a favor and avoid this spot unless you like to be treated like crap. Sometimes you seriously wonder who is the customer. PS: I’m French so there was nothing lost in translation. Seriously hope folks who don’t speak French were not subjected to this poor service.More

Good atmosphere. Worth a visit after ski-ing back to the chalet. Very friendly local family run bistro/bar/restaurant.

I am not sure about the restaurant, but for crêpe, I can not recommend at all this place, 5€ for “something” that looks a bit better compare to the first plate I have returned. It was disgusting with about half the pot of chocolate, much...more than what you can see on the picture. This one, has same quantity of chocolate inside than outside... disgusting...More

Reserved an indoor table, they tried to put us right next to an open door. When we asked if there was anywhere else, waiter responded ‘see you, Bye, thanks’ ie please leave. I was gobsmacked at his rudeness to a perfectly pleasantly delivered request plus...the restaurant was practically empty at this point & we reserved a table at 9am that morning. We are regular visitors to valley, this restaurant is close to ski schools- no brainer for the ease? I’ll never come here again & I’d been in here a lot over the years, yes the service is slow, food comes in drinks & drabs, tables are small & tightly packed - you often end up with someone dipping something if your lunch - this week someone’s long hair in my husband pizza & a blokes bum in my salad this time ( yes the tables are that close!) tbh that’s part of skiing. But when you bother to reserve a table The point is to keep kids warm while eating. Save yourself the bother & go to the Argentero across the piste, bit more expensive but staff are far more pleasant!!More

Located at the end of a piste next to a lift so a great place for a mid-ski break! Quick service and friendly staff and a great atmosphere.

If you are skiing at Grands Montets, you know the food up high is horrible and owned by the ski company. Avoid that rubbish. Ski down the Pierre à Ric piste (a lovely long red run) and stop at the bottom to visit the Marmottons...for lunch instead. Consistently good food, friendly staff and good value. Lots of vegetarian choices !!More

It is a great stop for midday or end of day light bite and a beer or glass of wine. Busy and full of life.

Right next to the slope. Ate there cos it was convenient. Ate there a few times. Enjoyed the spaghetti and lunch special (it was steak that day). Didn't enjoy the onion soup. don't order it. Coke was over priced. Wine was fairly priced. Packed to...the max during peak season. Waiters and waitresses were nice people. I left a tip each time I went and I could see the appreciation on their faces. The manager (or maybe owner) doesn't smile much.More

We met up with friends for the day that were there for the skiing. The food could have been better, but the service was great, and very friendly. They had a very big terrace and it was in the sun the entire day, which was...amazing.More

At the bottom of the Grand Montets (Chamonix) right to the cable car. Great welcome, rapidity, good food. What do you need more. Even the sun was included..... Special mention for the 'croûtes Savoiyardes'

We just needed a place for lunch. Les Marmottons is right next to the gondola for Grand Motets. The food was OK, but the service was kind of slow and they were out of a lot of things by 1 pm.
