Description: Chef Ana Lilia Galindo serves up a globe-spanning menu in Chamonix's cozy, hearth-warmed dining room. The specialty here is the aptly named Swiss fillet— medallions of beef wrapped in ham and cheese. But frequent fliers will also be pleased by traditional Mexican dishes like beef-stuffed poblano chiles, spicy Sri Lankan curry, Vietnamese spring rolls, and an array of fresh pastas. In fine weather, the pretty outdoor terrace is a lovely place to linger.

It was a cold night, so we sat inside instead of in the romantic courtyard. Our table was set nicely, our waiter was very attentive and friendly, and we had some tasty dishes. i would return.

Chamonix is a small restaurant with a nice menu, dedicated staff and really good and fresh food and a fair selection of wind and drinks. You'll find a good realtion of quality for money. We've been there twice within four months and can really recommend. Make sure you have a reservation. Be advised that they are closed on sundays and that the kitchen in general closes at 9 pm.

I've heard Chamonix restaurant recommended by several friends in the last year and I knew it is recognized as one of San Miguel's old standard restaurants... Somehow I had never gone, perhaps because it is an established restaurant and not breaking news. This week I went, for the first time, with friends who go there a couple of times per month. I was absolutely delighted! The quality of courses was above average to simply outstanding from top to bottom and I found the prices in line with restaurants of inferior quality. The outdoor setting in the courtyard was memorable, too, and the portable heater made the chilly evening cozy and comfortable during these transitional evenings. I look forward to returning to this renowned restaurant again and again and will skip some of the new flashes where I've wasted time and money.
