Description: A plateful of memories La Maison Carrier restaurant, 5 minutes walking distance from the center of Chamonix, offers a peacefull and quality atmosphere. There are some menus that immediately tell you what a place is all about. And that's true for Maison Carrier's menu. It tells a tale of copper pots simmering on a woodburning stove, of hearty meals inspired by mountain walks, of wild herbs freshly picked; a harmonious blend of alpine pastures and French 'bourgoies chic'. Furnished with dressers, alpine paintings, checked tablecloths, and objects picked up in old Savoyard farms, this country auberge pays tribute to Marcel Carrier's recipes, local producers, and to the whole region. Since its opening in 1997, Stephane Gassot, chef, has crafted the reputation of the Maison Carrier. He proposes a culinary experience that is unique in Chamonix, traditional cuisine with modern overtones. Everything in this decor of aged wood is dedicated to the dining experience.

What a lovely informal dining experience. Not many tourists either, just the locals. Getting in and booking is a challenge. The menu is just great and a very extensive (if expensive) wine list. Worth a visit, a special occasion

The service was very slow. It took them 45 minutes to take our order. Not sure why.
The food and wine were good though.

Cozy restaurant with good service and food. Would recommend going to the bar early for a cocktail and some live piano beforehand.

We had the rack of lamb for two cooked over an open fire which was cooked perfectly although the fat could have been rendered a little further.

Great meal, great setting, great night.

Have eaten here twice, non-plussed by service or food. The wine prices are beyond exorbitant. The pitchers of house wine at 30 euros are clearly poured from a box.

There’s much better fare than this in Chamonix, give it a pass.

Dear Mme, Mr,
I am very sorry you have not been satisfied with our restaurant La Maison Carrier.
Please be sure our Pichet wine is not poured from a box. This beginning of February we actually propose two red wines ( Mondeuse domaine de l'idylle; Hautes Côtes de Beaune domaine Bergeret) and two white wines ( Viognier les Contours de Deponcins, Coteaux du Giennois Terre de Silex). We also propose a large choice of wines by the bottle.
May I apologize if this choice did not suit you.
Kind regards,
Perrine Maillet-Carrier

Carrier is a charming house set back from the main road. The all wood decor envelops you in a warm embrace as does the friendliness of the staff. The food is excellent and good value - but do make sure to save space for the dessert buffet. Ranging from cakes to isle flottant, there's a mouthwatering array of local specialities made with fresh ingredients. We include a visit every time we go to Chamonix.
