We enjoyed Le Caveau for two dinners in Chamonix. Situated on the pedestrian-only boulevard, Dr. Piccard, you descend a narrow stairway opening into a domed-ceilinged long room intimately lit.

Really nice unusual venue with lots of ambience and good service. We had a good meal of the usual European fare. A friend and I shared the raclette which was enormous.

It's sad that Le Caveau has become a restaurant to avoid. The place is unique and very romantic. The food is just not good with very poor ingredients with very high prices. Same goes for their pizzas that are no longer good and often burned.

Booked well in advance for 9. Placed in the very bright back room, with a door to a storeroom that kept being opened and closed right on one of our seats. Pizzas were burnt, 7 out of 9 of them. Been here many times, perhaps...More
