It was one of the first restaurants for us to eat at in chamonix, and it was perfect. The food was very tasty, the ambiance was very warm. We were planning to go back but never did, but if I ever go to back to chamonix I will definitely will. One thing though, when we first went in we smelled a weird fuel smell (probably for the heaters).

I'm glad we dined here on our first night in Chamonix. It's a nice restaurant with great food. Service is attentive and there's a nice relaxed vibe. We had a three course option for around 26 Euro or so which is great value in Chamonix. Definitely recommend.

Expectations were quite high for our meal at Le Revola, having read a number of glowing reviews. On the whole we thought the food was good but not exceptional.

We were presented with complimentary amuse bouches after ordering which were consisted of a cheese and celery cream with smoked duck. They were too cold to get the full flavour of them but perfectly pleasant.

Between us we had starters of saucisson in a pastry basket with caramelised onions and rocket, chestnut soup with bacon and parmesan creme and a baby octopus salad, all of which we enjoyed.

Main courses were a well cooked but unremarkable white fish dish, a delicious duckling with a red wine jus, and an under cooked pork loin with fantastic roast parsnips. There was a lack of seasoning across all the dishes but on the whole they were well cooked and were all beautifully presented.

Pudding was the most successful course. The warm chocolate tart and tangy orange sorbet worked brilliantly. The avocado creme with chilli was a little more bland than expected. The pink praline tart was a solid fudgey slab of teeth achingly sweet joy.

The wine list is good and we drank a very reasonable Saint-Véran at around EUR26 a bottle.

Everything was very reasonably priced. If you chose all three specials your meal came to EUR24 and for EUR29 you could choose any three courses from the aà la carte menu.

Service was prompt without being harried and unfailingly friendly. We all left satisfied.

Le Revola is by far the best restaurant in Chamonix. All the dishes ordered were excellent and the service could not have been better.
