While there is no view, it's nice to eat somewhere that is different from everywhere else. Le caveau is definitely that. The service was great - friendly and attentive. The food was amazing. We ordered the nachos to share and the tomato salsa was homemade and tasted fantastic. But it was the lasagne that was the best dish of the... More

Loved this very atmospheric restaurant in the heart of Chamonix. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The food was delish....steak au poivre and chips was just right. A lovely buzzy atmosphere and a mixture of young and old. The underground location is fabulous. Not too pricey....good value for money. Definitely returning!!

Le Caveau has been run by the same staff for several years and they make great pizzas in a proper wood fired oven. They also do a very good Creme Brûlée. I've eaten in Le Caveau many times and have enjoyed the meal every time. The owner also has a lovely dog that lays near the bar adding to the... More

We came by and decided to drop in. Real wooden "forno". Pizza margarita was so good that we ordered two. In the end we barely got out of the restaurant :)

Le Caveau has a unique dining atmosphere in the cellars and fair prices, but we found that their pizza crust was a bit underdone.

Eating in some kind of a grove is very interesting! And as you are going downstairs you don't expect this beautiful made from stone like a tunnel restaurant! The food was just good ,the chili hot salad was very tasty and "hot" and the service was just satisfying. The best of all was that it stays until late so you... More

And expensive. Don't even think about eating anything but pizza there, my wife had onion soup and it was terrible. This is an expensive city, and there should be only good food for expecting travelers. This place misses the mark.
