“Delicious food away from tourist strip”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We spent two weeks in Chamonix and loved eating at this restaurant. The atmosphere was great. Lunch was relaxed and friendly, evenings were warm and cosy. The food is the best in Chamonix that we tried. Modern gourmet menu but not overpriced. Service was lovely. It's away from the ugly tourist strip. The pancakes we had for breakfast were awesome.

“So much overrated!..”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We booked this restaurant basing on all those "wow" reviews here on Tripadvisor. What can I say? My husband prohibited me reading Tripadvisor after dining there. Though the place is tiny, the size is not its main problem. The food is a nightmare and the wines selection is even worse. Scallops were so much overdone they got rubbery hard, steak was impossible to chew, turbot was a shame and I'd better leave "white chocolate mousse" with no comments. The only reason I rated this place as "bad" instead of "horrible" is the service. Girls are trying to live up to the standards, but their enthusiasm is unfortunately not enough to rescue the place.
Guys, you've got so many wonderful restaurants in Chamonix - Le Panier des 4 Saisons, Auberge du Bois Prin, L'Atmosphere to name a few - do not waste your time and money in La Petite Kitchen.

We had only 1 night in Chamonix. A friend recommended La Petite Kitchen. What a find! It's a tiny place. Since it was low season, we were able to get a table. The prix fixe was superb. Service excellent and atmosphere quite pleasant. The presentation was pure artistry. Great lamb, beef and cod. Would love to go back!

“Food to Beautiful to Consume”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is the finest restaurant we have ever been to. From the engaging server to the cool jazz to the dishes prepared with love and passion.

Just scrumptious. Fresh product and spot on seasoning.
The only reason we are not eating there for the third day is because they are closed.
