The chairs were so clustered in one area despite no customers I had to climb over the window to get out of my seat and was yelled at by the waitress (which I guess seems kinda fair) but...The waitresses avoided serving us and abrupt and rudely told our friends to buy food or move out of the doorway despite us needing to chat quickly with them about transport. The crepes we were served were brittle and dry, the fondue was a 75% wine layer on top and 25% unmelted cheese at the bottom of the pot and tasted revolting. The cook seriously didn't put any effort whatsoever. We were so disgusted we left quickly. We were doublecharged and when we asked the waitress upon paying she didn't answer but got her female manager along with the male cook who came out of the kitchen to yell at us and ask us why we couldn't read French on the menu which didn't even explain why we were doublecharged. When we asked if we could split the bill the manager was rude and sarcastic and said, "Whatever you want?" My friend was so appalled at her rudeness that she told her off for her terrible service, and the manager proceeded to yell at her and say that she runs a business and that she deals with too many people and tourists like us who don't work hard like her (which is utter rubbish) and we looked around and there was no one in the café - this woman is awful and needs to change her job if she hates it so much. I will never ever visit this awful café again until the staff learn how to treat people.

On the flipside, we walked down to a café two shops down to get some real food and the service from the staff there was lovely, they were accommodating, funny and helpful. The food was delicious and presented incredibly, it was much cheaper and the service was quick and efficient. The male staff there were a testament to their lovely town. Would definitely go back La Poele!!

We were first time visitors to beautiful Chamonix and chanced upon this restaurant. What a lucky find. Food well, .... still dreaming of it !!!! Not posh but just great simple freshly prepared and such good value for money. The staff very friendly and so cheerful and enthusiastic. Sweet crepes to die for.. Hopefully we will visit Chamonix again and our meals will be at La Ferme. Ps not open in the evening but great if you arrive tired and hungry before I think about 5pm.

This restaurant is located at 67 avenue de l'Aiguille du Midi (the actual address on this entry was lacking so I'm including it for those that want to get directions). The savory crepes were delicious and the dessert DIVINE (if it says caramel, order it)! This is a great place to dine if you're ready for dinner before all the other restaurants open (open 8am until 9pm non-stop).
