Visited l'Atmosphere with my boyfriend and had an excellent meal from the set price 3 course menu, which is fantastic value, particularly compared with a la carte here. We both had a salad to start, with main courses of braised beef with Beaufort polenta and tartiflette, finishing with deserts of maron glacé gateau and chocolate parfait. The food was very good indeed. The service was unassuming and the wine list exceptional. The cheese fondues being served around us were no doubt good but were something of an insult to the restaurant's kitchen which is clearly capable of greater culinary heights than wine and cheese in a saucepan.
A few things let the restaurant down, particularly as it is clearly trying to cater for upmarket clientele: 1. Funny bar area at the entrance to the restaurant. 2. 1980s lobster tank. 3. Piped music and large air conditioning vents and speaker peppering the ceilings. 4. Shiny red curtains obscuring view of the river. But these are minor quibbles. We had a lovely evening here and would recommend it to anyone looking to venture beyond Savoyard fare and experience a more refined dining experience than is typical in French ski resorts.
