Firstly I recommend you book, we were very lucky to get a table. This is a small but perfectly formed restaurant. There are only about 30 places and you are not rushed to leave for more customers. The couple that run it are friendly and entertaining. The food is an absolute delight, the rabbit stew was fantastic, excellent value for... More

A lovely chalet designed restaurant. It is small but this makes it feel cozy. The couple who run it were very friendly and helpful, the husband spoke english very well and was helpful with choosing wines. I had the duck with honey and lime, it was cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious, if I could buy a bottle I... More

Tasty and good presented food. There is no changing table for babies. 28 euro per person for fondue. And the salad for 2 people was in a very small bowl. Good food but nothing exceptional.

First of, we ate here 5 out of the 7 nights. So in needn't say any more. It's a realy cosy place with only about a dozen tables. Not a extensive menu but plenty of local dishes to go at.

Been coming here for years. Unfriendly and pestered by photographer. A shame since the food is actually pretty good. There are friendlier and better places to eat here.

What a great little warm hideaway to grab a cafe creme or some lunch in between skiing or hiking in the beautiful mountains all around. We were there for a week recently and called every day. The warmth of the staff, the service and the food were the best of France. Vive Le petit Chalet

We have eaten here whilst visiting Chantemerle over the New year holiday period for the last three years. The atmosphere is delightful and the service is friendly and efficient even when very busy. The set meal is very reasonable and despite being cheap, the portions are generous and the standard of food is good.

Don't be tempted by the foreign delights of Slovenia (cerf - deer) or Argentinia (beef) just stick to familiar terrain. The duck is cooked to perfection - a generous serving with some potato, vegetables and spinach on the side. Wear your best outfit for the renowned, roaming photographer. La petite chalet
