Fondue is a delight for the senses. The restaurant is cozy and the service is phenomenal. I want to go back.

Incredible menu. Incredible vintage alpine decor. It is as if one goes back in time when they escalated Mont Blanc for the first time!

Away from home on business trip - a good dinner. A pleasant atmosphere, nice service tasty and big dishes. The predefined menus have a reasonable price. A good choice restaurant. Not a "must come back".

We were overwhelmed by the great alpine decor at the restaurant. Although the place is rather large, the atmosphere is cosy. We had raclette for two and were given our own half cheese plus heater and we had a great time eating. Service was very attentive.

Cozy little spot in the heart of Chamonix with a very nice ski chalet atmosphere. If you like fondue or raclette, this is the place for you.

In a great mountain atmosphere! It is a large restaurant but very busy so you are advised to book, even for lunch. We arrived at 1.15pm for lunch and had to wait for 15 minutes which was fine. We had the classic dish of potato, bacon and melted cheese and the wild boar terrine which was outstanding. With 3 glasses... More

I know that is to be expected in a Savoyard Restaurant but it is near impossible to taste fish or ice cream when there are melted cheese on 80% of the tables. I am sure the cheese is excellent so if that is what you are looking for- try this place! We had duck (decent but far from the best... More
