Description: La Petite Kitchen is a new Modern-European style restaurant in the heart of Chamonix. You'll find a warm welcome, good prices, and excellent food.We offer bistro-style food during the day in a fun and chilled café environment. In the evening the space changes into a cosy and relaxed dining room, with great wines from all over Europe and South America which accompany a select, freshly prepared and inventive menu.You won't find better value for money in Chamonix!

Small and cosy. Great service despite being a quiet evening. The menu is small, but offers more than enough to give one a great selection on Savoie cuisine. The wine list is not extensive, but compliments the dishes and even features a South African Pinotage. Spent a great night out with friends!

We visited for my friends 50th birthday as a party of 9. The set menu seamed reasonably priced especially when compared with other food prices in the area and up the mountains. Most of our meals were easily a 9/10 and although some of the mains didn't quite reach the mark, the whole experience was excellent. We loved the additional touches of cauliflower purée before our starters and petit fours to follow dessert. Great alcoholic milk shakes too :)

Petite Kitchen

The restaurant is rather small and furnishings are quite simple, but: Service is managed by one young lady who is very nice and efficiently and the food is very good. You get an entire menu for € 35 and can select the courses from the menu. The dishes are presented beautifully and they are creatively prepared. We went there twice during our stay in Chamonix and can highly recommend this restaurant, and please: try the desserts, they are great.

The menu is quite expensive for what they serve. We enjoyed the starter (salmon and scallops) but the main dish was not as tasty as expected (when you pay this price!) and the desert (brownie) wasn't fresh at all.
The waitress was pushing us to order some digestives and coffee as we were a big table of 9 people. At the end we had to pay 56 euros per person! First we were surprised. Then we noticed they add 10% of service (50€) which is ILLEGAL in France!!! Stop doing this! Thank you! Disappointed group.

I am disappointed to read the review from this client. At the end of the meal when asked if they had enjoyed everything they replied that they had, in fact they said that they would come back the next time they visited Chamonix. We did not receive a complaint about the dessert, and if we had we certainly would have changed it immediately.

We ask every table if they would like a digestif with their dessert and coffee as do most restaurants, so this shouldn't seem unusual.

56€ per head is average for a 3 course meal with wine, coffee and digestif in Chamonix. We operate in a seasonal town and the prices reflect this.

Finally the service charge is optional, as explained to the client at the time. They were under no obligation to pay it, it is merely a guidline for international guests as they often are unsure how much to leave for service.

We enjoyed this place. They have good aura. Restaurant is were cosy and staff is friendly. We chosen scalops as starter and it was delicious. Steak also was good. This is great place for friends diners and family diners. As we are from Riga we were happy to meet person who was with Latvian origin in restaurant
