“Great place”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This is a great place for having a drink, a regular dinner and everything in between.
We were there a number of times january 2014 and had a nice experience every time.
The chef, Chris (sp.?), has a very good command of english and is friendly and helpful with tips on skiing and things to do in Chamonix. The food is great, actually I had meat usually and the entrecote is good. The desserts are generous, try the "Williams" ice cream with pear liqueur!

“Friendly service, food OK”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Super friendly owner and waitress. Nice service. OK food. I'll admit I have high expectations of French food so I'd rate this place higher in the UK. It was OK, not fantastic.

“Friendly staff, average food. ”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Le Bivouac had good food, not great. The staff was very friendly and the owner spoke good English with an English menu. Felt it was slightly overpriced for what we ordered.
