“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Great food and good value if staying half board. Choice of starters, main courses and desserts each day. Something to suit all tastes.
Ask for a table at the window to get a view of the mountains.

“Not so good service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

The food was good. We ate a 3 course dinner, and the first course was quite excellent, I have ordered foie gras. The rest of the food was also good.
The lacking part is the service unfortunately.
The wine glass was used on our table, the girl could barely open the bottle of wine. It just did not look professional. They were all very kind, and lovely people, they just would need a training.

“High Standard Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We stayed at the hotel in the middle of March 2014 and were really very pleasantly surprised with the restaurant. We have stayed in Chamonix many times and every time have had difficulty finding a mid-priced restaurant that delivers. We had forgotten that the hotel had a restaurant so were pleasantly surprised.
The decor is modern-french which fits in the style of the hotel. When we attended there were a mixture of people, many french and some english. Every night (4 nights), most of the tables were occupied. The staff were very good: not in the way, polite, happy and performing their role to a high standard. The food was really very good indeed. We had a good choice of dishes, starter, main and dessert. The restaurant brought appetisers with our aperitif. These were so tasty.
There was a menu that is permanent and a menu of the day which does change daily. Sufficient variety. In total we ate there 3 times.
I would have given it 5 stars but on the Sunday night, we had a buffet which although very tasty was not quite what I would have liked in a hotel. I think it was the chef's night off. Whilst I appreciate that this is necessary, I'm not sure that the buffet works. The food was tasty (hot and cold food available) and there was a large variety: I'm sure children would have loved it. We only stayed there as we were too exhausted by the skiing to want to walk to find an alternative.
We have eaten in many high end restaurants in the UK and I was really very pleasantly surprised at the high quality of this hotel restaurant. They only opened in December so it seems that they have sorted out all their issues (judging from the previous review). We would have no hesitation in eating there again.
