This good restaurant, has a good price for their menu, and it is very cozy, all decorated in wooden, the food was good but not grate, but the service wasn't good they didn't try to please us or be nice, no explanations about the menu and as it was late we were almost abandoned in the end.

We are spending a week end skiing in Chamonix and were looking forward for some traditional local food. The place is nice and exhudes a lot of charm. We were a large group and endee being seated on two different tables while we had booked 1 table. The waiters had an attitude and then it took an hour to have our appetizers (which were good by the way). 45 minutes later we stil had not received our main courses although we had asked the waiters 3 times about them, we decided to cancel, pay and leave.

In summary they managed to ruin one of our week end evenings with their terrible and nonexistent service. What a joke.

We eat every year in La Maison Carrier, when going back to Barcelona after our yearly stay in Zermatt. The quality and food are excellent, they've never disappointed us. We love eating in "La salle des guides" it's a very cosy place. The dessert choice is fabulous and everything is excellent. The "plat du jour" has always a very good price-quality ratio. We strongly recommend eating in this restaurant. The choice of menus is also very good and the prices are reasonable for what you get.

I have been at La Maison Carrier on Saturday February the 8th. I did book a couple of days in advance. and at a table of 6 friends we had a fantastic position with view of Aiguille du Midi (pity for the low clouds). We arrived at 1:30 PM but the kitchen was till fully opened and providing excellent cuisine and we spent there almost 2 hours eating some true French specialties associated with great wines. the best part of the meal was though the desert which came with free choice of all you wanted and they were all so delicious that everyone went at least for 4 or 5 different types of deserts and most had it twice. Final bill came at 160 Euro per couple but was money well spent.

We went today for a late lunch. Impeccable service and great quality for a very reasonable price, including a warm atmosphere and a lot of attention to our children. Very worth visiting
