My first choice in Chamonix, bar none! Eating here is a reasonable revelation, most times, and the place is soothing to the eye: Mr. Carrier obviously loved his grandmother and never forgot her food, although he grew up in the kitchen of his parents' renowned Albert 1 restaurant (next door, you should go there, too). When time came for Mr Carrier to create something on his own, he built this fantastic "old farm"-like hotel complex with beautiful old wood decor (selected from three or four old farm houses torn down, and you would never have guessed there is a concrete core underneath). Centrally in the restaurant area, he erected a traditional smoke chimney for ham and saussiges (it eventually caught fire, as wood does burn when treated to high temperatures), I am sure his grandmother would have loved that one, too. Every single dish that I have eaten here has been somewhere between intereresting and wonderful, some may be a trifle too special for my urban wife, she reads the menu carefully now. The wine list covers a range from reasonable to expensive, the service has been excellent every time bar one. Overall, restaurants do not come much better than this !
