This is basically a pizza house with a bar. There is a pool table, and the atmosphere is relaxed and easy going.

It has a lot of recommendations for its pizzas. They are good, but I honestly cannot see what all the fuss is about. One issue here and elsewhere in the region is that the pizzas are very large, which sounds good but actually means that the middle tends to be rather soggy by the time you get there. Generosity in portion size is in principle a good thing, but I was struggling to finish my plate and gave up in the end. A smaller pizza would stay crisper until you finished it. Of course, some people prefer quantity to quality.

Service was OK, friendly when we did manage to get the attention of the waitress.

We did find this not to be inexpensive for a pizza house. The food at La P'tite Vert was not a lot more expensive, but was far better.

Still, if you want a pizza, and who does not from time to time, this is a good place.

As with all Argentiere restaurants, reservation in advance is highly recommended, even out of season.

Been visiting for 10 years it is a tradition that we allways come for our first meal and our last meal. The pizzas are unbelievably good and so is the rest of the food. It is a great place for every age. The kids love it due to playing on a great pool table. The survice is outstanding and you are welcomed in to a warm pieceful enviroment. The owners are great people they are allways there welcoming you. I love the stonebar, it is my favourite restaurant. You should not visit chamonix without visiting the stone bar.

Great relaxed atmosphere, warm and cosy, seems to be the place the locals go, always busy, house wine is selected by the owner by the bottle so you get to try what he thinks is best - all very good. Great selection of food - pizzas and salads delicious, we tried the grilled prawns from the fusion menu which were delicious. All great value for money too. Highly recommended for a relaxed night out after skiing.

Haven't had food yet here, but definitely planning to.
Place is nice and "warm", staff is friendly, menu is mouth watering... Can't really find a down side!!!
Very nice place to go if you wanna get out of the busy chamonix! Much more typical...

Some unusual types of pizza here, including some that I have never seen before or even imagined. They coped very well with our large group (13 people) bringing out the pizzas in 2 separate services. This was fine as people who already had their pizza could share with someone else.
