We were attracted by the Chalet style restaurant but really wanted to eat something a bit different that the usual food served in mountains restaurants We were surprised by the menu , quite different . We had some some delicate fish with very fresh vegies , we had very much the feel that the chef still like to cook. The desserts were not too sweet or too heavy , we did not feel bloated. We then discovered it is a female chef and a female owner ! There something about female chefs, nothing to heavy , all well balanced. We recommend the place, go there before the girls become to popular !!

There were seven of us (three adults and four 6-10 year old kids). We waited for the waiter for 30 minutes to take the order. A middle aged man was nodding his head every few minutes telling us that he would take the order shortly. And then he would disappear in the kitchen just to emerge agan and nod to us. Eventually he took the order. The kids burger (overcooked) came after another hour of waiting. Other dishes followed one per ten minutes: some cold, others overcooked. We ate separately from each other. It is the worst place in entire Chamonix.

We stumbled on this resturant on a very wet evening in Chamonix, looking for somewhere to have something other than fondue or steak. The menu promised an interesting variety of "real" food (as opposed to mountain food, which can get a bit monotonous after a while). Excellent starters, such as scallops with chorizo, then delicious main courses - baked cod with roasted veg was superb, lamb with rice and chickpeas was also good. The puddings were elegantly presented and delicious and the cheese plate was superb. Service was good and the wine list more than adequate. All in all a very happy accident that we ended up here - we will be returning!

On a girls' weekend in Chamonix with my friend, and the local builder told us this restaurant had new owners and he really liked it. So we decided to try it on our last night, after sitting over 10 minutes in another restaurant waiting to order, and finally walking out.

The restaurant is on a corner and we sat out in the little courtyard, surrounded by vivid Alpine flowers in window boxes, and lit with soft lighting. It felt much nicer than some of the crowded places we had looked at.

As someone mentioned before, the menu isn't huge, but it is more varied than a lot of the other restaurants we looked at. The owner was very pleasant and helpful: I asked if he could do a vegetarian "plat du jour" and he went to ask the chef, who said he could do me a vegi ravioli. This was absolutely gorgeous: more like a lasagne than a ravioli to me, but very tasty and filling and a generous portion for the "plat" price of 9.50 Euros. My friend had steak and chips, at 19.50 Euros,
which were a little bit well done but very tasty none the less. We also had a litre carafe of house Rose wine which was delicious and amazing value at 15 Euros.

Dessert was mousse au chocolat to die for! Half milk and half white chocolate, a generous portion which melted in the mouth. We loved it! And at 6 Euros each it was pretty reasonably priced as well.

This was a lovely end to our holiday and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We first popped in for a lunch salad. Everything was super fresh, the combinations not too common but well thought after. We came back the next day, and the evening.
The menu is not a mile long, but everything we tasted was well prepared and waaaay above the average tourist joint in the neighbourhood. My husband even went to the extent to say that his steak was one of the best he's ever eaten! The restaurant is apparently working under new owners. That would explain it, cause our visit a year before did not leave lasting memories. Now it did.
All and all, money well spent. And this comes from testing the place on four different occasions!
