“Hotel Eden - Maybe Worth a Second Chance !”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Hi, like several of the people who have recently commented on "The Eden" ... over many years we have eaten there and loved it, great food, ambiance and charm. Two years ago it was taken over by a Russian and rapidly went downhill. We swore we'd never go again ... BUT ... we were walking in the area two weeks ago, it was sunny and the terrace looked inviting so we thought "why not" ... we were served by the new manager, a very friendly Russian ("Olga") who explained that it had been sold in May, 2014 and the new (still Russian) owners were trying to significantly improve it having heard all the horror stories about their predecessors. At the time of our visit they were trying to recruit a chef .... they were friendly and I do hope they can turn it around ... I'd be interested to hear of others experience in the coming weeks/months ..

“avoid like the plague”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Only second time I have wrote a review but I felt obligated to warn people.
Have been going to Chamonix for over 10 years. Eden was always our favourite restaurant. Kids loved it. About 2 years ago it changed ownership with Russian taking over. Last year had changed a bit but staff were still French and professional.
Went last night. Now all French staff gone. All Russian staff all dressed like they were out cleaning the snow. Ordered steak which came out about 5 minutes after ordered. Ordered medium -well but got a plate of blood red meat together with completely nuked potato side.
Could not eat a piece of it. Paid the 100 euro bill and ran as fast as we could.
Terrible shame to see a real top notch place completely destroyed.

“Proprietor is rude & service is poor.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

Eden hotel WAS a lovely place to enjoy a meal. Alas, no linger since being taken over by an extremely rude and disinterested Russian.
