We splurged on our last night in Chamonix for a wine paired 6 course meal (that was really 9 courses for the extras we received). The food was very good, well presented, although too much food for me! But it was quite an experience. The wait staff could have been a little more attentive for the money we were paying,... More

A group of us recently went to Le Bistrot for a birthday celebration. The restaurant itself if situated just off the river in Chamonix and is more formal than most restaurants in Chamonix. As it was a friends birthday, who really appreciates good food and restaurant experiences, this was one of a few options in Chamonix. The meal was a... More

What a fantastic place this is. After eating at a variety of fine dining restaurants around the world I had decided to book this restaurant in advance to celebrate my partners and I engagement.

A bit more formal than most places in Chamonix, you will still feel comfortable in jeans and boots. Food was quite good, but the service was a bit slow.

Last day in Chamonix and following a trip to the Aiguille du Midi we came back down for lunch. Really well priced set menu for lunch. Service a bit clunky as it was a young lad who seemed out of his depth, but would still recommend.

Utterly disappointing and forgettable food. Had the "Valentine's menu" which was €70 for 6 courses and was the worst fine dining experience I've ever had. The monkfish was served cold with no flavour. The veal was over cooked and unseasoned. The dessert was actively awful and inedible. Our dissatisfaction was clear after the first few courses but at no point... More

There are 3 Michelin star restaurants in Chamonix and this is one of them. Stunning really, when you realize you can get in often without a reservation (although they prefer them), and be wearing your ski clothes. It is on the expensive side but nothing compared to a Michelin restaurant in a major city (which you can't get into anyways).... More

The menu is limited but reads well. However the dishes were surprisingly subpar: perch that was overly fried and oily and plated unappetizingly; veal that was too fatty. The service was also slow, but I could have lived with that had the food been good.

Very well worth to go for food and ambience. The only reason for the4 star is that if the menu is more informative in English would have warren the fifth star. All said, is still worth eating in this Resturant.
