“Outstanding food, service, view and good value”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Having eaten at some of the worlds best restaurants we now would add this one. In our humble opinion what makes a superb dinner experience is when the owners and chef create a memorable unrushed dining experience with high quality food, superior attentive service, a great terrace view and very happy dinners.

When all this is done at reasonable prices, it is a very special treat!

Bonne appetite!

“Perfectly Surperb”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Between the view of the Mont Blanc mountain range from the deck, to the amazing food, to the friendly service, this restaurant was surperb. We chose it on trip advisor, but it more than exceeded our expectations. Walked up from Chamonix, about 15 minutes, (or you an drive) but it allowed us to see the beautiful setting as well as have a little walk after dinner. The food was creative and delicious, the service was attentive, but not snobby. Some of the ingredients come from their garden. When we finished, they said we could stay as long as we liked. It is off the beaten track, but you will have a most memorable meal. Highly recommend his restaurant.

“Terrible”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

We have had no heat for 3 days, and now just before christmas eve no hot water. Not a place to stay on family vacation. very hard to communicate if you do not speak french. Breakfast is mediocre and takes forever to get served. Not enough staff. Maintenance is one person. We are never coming back here.

“Great exprience and food”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

This was my second time at a Michelin Star restaurant and the experience here was very good.

The staff were attentive and also helpful in explaining each dish that was on the table. They will also tell you how to enjoy the dish.

Be prepared to be surprised by special treats too!

Although location is a little secluded. It is worth the walk to this place.

I recommend walking there before the sky turns dark so that it would make it a nicer experience to walk back to Chamonix town.

It is a comfortable 15-25 mins walk (depending on speed) with slight uphill from town centre.

I feel that the price to pay is not expensive for a Michelin 1 star restaurant.

“Thank you for a wonderful anniversary”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Best meal ever - have the set menu and take advice from the excellent staff. Beautiful food, local ingredients, incredible chef, excellent service and views of Mont Blanc - what more could you ask for?
