The food was delicious. Interesting, exciting and very, very tasty. The beef cooked over the woodfire was incredible. Wonderful seared tuna. The prices were typical for most Chamonix restaurants, and a bargain for the quality. And this was the best place for reasonably priced wine...More

We visited Le Chaudron after a day at the slopes and all thought our food was amazing. From escargot to tuna, lamb and onglet, it was incredibly tasty. A great find in Chamonix.

The server helped us select a very satisfying wine and every aspect of our meals were perfect. The steak with mustard sauce was a taste treat and the vegetables were just as carefully prepared. The warmed chocolate mini cake with mango sorbet was a perfect...More
