Lunch menu de jour - similar price to all local restaurants (so not cheap). Food was fine, relatively small portion for the main - and no possibility of substituting any of the courses (which is fair enough but a slight shame).
Quick service, friendly enough, but not overbearing.
We certainly didn't experience any of the issues highlighted by other reviewers here.

Have you ever been so disgusted coming out of a restaurant (if you can call it that)?

The food arrived within 2 mins and smelled of bleach!

Potent smell of bleach and ammonia coming from all dishes. I was nauseous for 3 hours after.

I want to make sure nobody ever enters this establishment.

I don't want to even say the word "avoid", more along the lines of “if you value your health do not go there“.

Feeling sick just thinking about it.

Our family visit this restaurant just about every time we ski in Chamonix. It has a good choice, food has always been good and we have never had trouble getting a table for 5 sometimes 6.

Both my sons always have the steaks as does my wife alomg with Onion soup to start and I always go for the moulles and chips which are always a delight served also with a curry or truffle sauce as an extra option

There is kids meals on offer with mouse or ice cream for dessert.

Wine list is pretty good and the ambience is warm and friendly.

Can be a little pricy, but its worth it. Will definitely keep coming back.

We were really happy to get our first meal in Chamonix here. We got snails and raclette with potatoes and dry meats, really happy with everything! Service was quick despite quite busy and food was of good quality.

Well where do I start? On the service or the (low) quality of food? Difficult to chose as they were both close to the lowest you can get in something that is not a kebab. The service is French standard (I am french)and the good is subpar .

Well in a nutshell: safest to avoid
