Went there after a hike. Showed up without booking but got lucky (although we had to seat inside). We all had the mushroom fondue which was really good. It comes with bread, potatoes and cold cuts. Service was friendly although the place was super busy.

Ate here with the family at the recommendation of our hotel. Not a good recommendation compared to the other restaurants we've eaten at Chamonix. Food was generally good but, except for one dessert (the nougat ice cream) none of the dishes were at all memorable....More

We went here after a disastrous visit to Cap Horn (avoid). Food was first rate. Service was excellent. Wonderful outdoor space with lovely views. We have visited three times since.

this is my favorite restaurant when it comes to eat local cuisine : plat savoyard. The raclette, the fondues...the cheese is excellent. I go to this restaurant each time that I am in town ! The decoration is typical alps style

We enjoyed a wonderfully memorable meal at Le Monchu with another couple. One couple ordered the hot stone beef meal and the other traditional raclette heated by a charcoal mini stove. Service and atmosphere were both great.
