One of our very best dinners of the last years... The menu prepared by the chef was just amazing - great carpaccio of langoustines with caviar, perfect filet of deer and much more. The wine list is compelling and comprehensive. Service was excellent.

As most of the reviews have indicated, the welcoming, intro, cooking, wine pairing and unbeaten atmosphere were 1st class. They also managed the pace of service and attentiveness of serving well such that you don't feel it but it is always there, certainly not second to any of the Michelin 3 stars we have been to in France. The cook... More

Everything about this place was first class. The service, food, decor was impeccable. Decided to have our Christmas Day lunch here and opted for the Christmas Menu and it didn't disappoint. A constant parade of delectable delights were brought to our table with each course out-doing the last. Joined with a bottle of champagne and Chateauneuf-du-pape it was indeed a... More

I had the pleasure of going to the Albert 1ere for lunch. Great value. Just €82.00 for 4 courses with 2 glasses of wine with a quick trip to the pool and hammer before lunch - all included. Great value! The Albert 1ere is all class. Old school classic French whereby everything they do is perfect. They don't try to... More

This is the kind of restaurant you always hope to find in France. It's a beautiful room with lovely views over the aiguille rouge. The staff were very friendly and helpful, all at the top of their game. The wine list was extensive but approachable and a fabulous puligny Montrachet from a small producer was recommended followed by a delicious... More

In Chamonix clearly the best. Would standout anywhere. Lovely location in an alpine chalet look with a beautiful vegetable garden. Service was excellent. The sommelier was helpful, friendly and not at all supercilious. Wonderful three separate wines were sampled and all pronounced excellent. The Lake Geneva fish was delicate and cooked perfectly as were the chanterelles and poached egg. The... More
