This spot is fairly small but no doubt you will be enticed in by the hustle and bustle of the two chefs preparing traditional dishes while calling greetings to their local customers across the bar. Food is tasty, tables are cramped together but this all adds to the atmosphere. This along with speedy service and central location warrants a high rating

Very nice smaller restaurant , 266 rue Paccard. Strongly recommended.
Chris and his collegue offers very good food and a nice, friendly athmosphere. Savoyardes specialties but also more international dishes.
During our last visit to Chamonix the first weeks in January we had 3 dinners in Le Bivouac,
always fully satisfied.
Choose local Gamay vine on bottle.
After dinner, it is also nice to stop at the bardisk to chat with Chris a little about what time you should be at the Grand Montets cabin “tomorrow”..

This is a great place for having a drink, a regular dinner and everything in between.
We were there a number of times january 2014 and had a nice experience every time.
The chef, Chris (sp.?), has a very good command of english and is friendly and helpful with tips on skiing and things to do in Chamonix. The food is great, actually I had meat usually and the entrecote is good. The desserts are generous, try the "Williams" ice cream with pear liqueur!

Super friendly owner and waitress. Nice service. OK food. I'll admit I have high expectations of French food so I'd rate this place higher in the UK. It was OK, not fantastic.

Small easy going restaurant with very few tables. Well located near Helly Hansen shop, opposite refuge Payot shop. Excellent grilled meat and local dishes. Very friendly and relax owner and staff. Easy with kids as well. Nice terrace in the summer.
