Having only had one meal there it is hard to comment, but it was nothing special, and after having gone there for coffee 4 times, I can quite confidently say that the coffee sucks - although I don't know Chamonix well enough to recommend an alternative.

Very busy for food, so we were fooled into thinking it would be good. Heart is in the right place, but food poor and service was haphazard. That said, it was cheap.

My wife and I ate at Bistros Des Sports last week. We really ask that you do not eat here as there are so many better places to eat in Chamonix. The charcuterie was just 2 cuts of meat, the bread was stale and for our main courses were the worse we have ever eaten. My steak was just gristle... More

We came here during a skiing trip in Feb 2017 due to the reviews of the food. The bar area is well stocked for an acres ski drink and I highly recommend the French cider. We arrived at the restaurant when it opened at 7 and we ordered the entrecôte steak and the creme brûlée. Overall, great food, reasonably priced... More

We went for a drink on two occasions. The second time there was live band with great music. Lively, fun atmosphere.

We went here for a beer every day after skiing. Its used by the locals. Great service and good food. Had the Tagliatelle Gorgonzola and it was great. A nice place before you hit the shower.

They serve local dishes, they served a reasonable Price daily menú. The place is all wooden, very Savoix style. There is a full bar. No wifi. Toilet is downstairs, beware aged people. The lady serving the tables has a tendency to turn her back on you and leave while you are speaking to her. Not once. Many times. Seemed rude... More

It is historic, it is nice, many locals and the food is good not spectacular but good. Closer to old school Chamonix than "branché". I like it. Easy place for a lunch. My steak tartare was very good and French fries home made.

Very warm "Bonjour" from the owner when we entered the bistrot. Food was more than correct and affordable. Excellent music (60's)

Had their menu special which was salad along with a piece of beef. Not very friendly service and below average food.
