Ask for a table by the window as you will be looking at a small river flowing by, very pleasant indeed. Food was very enjoyable and service top notch.

We had dinner in this centrally located riverside restaurant on our ski holiday in Chamonix. Welcoming staff, wonderful butternut soup with deep flavours, and all other dishes were excellent. They found room for us at late notice. Highly recommended.

We had lunch here last week. The food was excellent, the best we've had in Chamonix by far. The veranda on the river with the view of Mont Blanc is simply superb. The staff were friendly and efficient, so all in all a very enjoyable experience.

The restaurant managed to squeeze us in even though they were fully booked, giving us a taste of the excellent service we experienced the whole evening. The food was also well prepared, making it a very nice evening.

Nice place in the heart of city. Friday's eve was busy but service did not fail. Food of quality. Quick service in order to meet the second service cut off (9pm). Same in most restaurants in town.

We had excellent table on the terrace side by the river. Service was good and efficient. Had ravioli as a starter and seabass for the maincourse. They were both very good. Some took the stake with foie gras which was superb. No desserts for as. Suitable for 'better' dining at Chamonix.

We had a double birthday to celebrate and went to L'atmosphere with a group of 5. For starters we had salad with apple, Tuna fish tartar and duck foie gras. All very good!
