A varied and exciting cuisine awaits…

Chamonix offers a wide range of excellent restaurants ranging from simple good quality food, family friendly restaurants, traditional cuisine, great pub food, excellent Michelin rated restaurants and great out of the way places.

Here are some of our favourites and some of the best places to go.


In town...
Best place for local specialities – Cheese, cheese and a little more cheese – oh and a bit of bacon

La Calèche
A lovely large traditional and authentique style restaurant
La Calèche is one of the oldest and most beautiful (book the mezzanine or ground floor only). A vast range of local dishes from Fondue, Raclette, Roblechonade and Pierrade with simpler and more classic dishes also available.

La Crèmerie du Glacier
This place is amazing especially in Winter when a 20 min walk in the forest and a sledge ride down adds up to a perfect evening. Small, simple cosy and delicious but only for cheese lovers! The Farcon and Eggs Mimi are not to be missed!
Always fully booked so let us know early!

The best burgers in town  

MoÖ Bar Cuisine
A lively fun place that my kids love, great atmosphere, burgers, sweet potatoes fries all served with a smile. 

Best Italien in town

Casa Valério
Award winning pizzas and one of the only late-night places that serve until 23.00.

My favorite pasta place with great fresh produce, a lovely welcome, quick and efficient service in a very authentic Italien atmosphere.

The Dainty
Their pizza is a sourdough approach to the Neapolitan tradition made with great quality ingredients, which are ethically sourced and often organic.

The best food in town

La Télécabine 
I have tasted pretty much everything on the menu here and every single dish is superb, instictive, creative and exceptional gastronomic cooking and an affordable price. Bea and Mike look forward to welcoming you and sharing their passion in this wonderful setting that suits large groups and romantic dinners alike.

Authentic and delicious French cooking at its best

Le Café Comptoir
Rarely to you come accross a female chef these days – and what a shame ! Nathalie's femininity comes through in a blend of local produce with innovative and modern twists to put some of the most stylish dishes on your table, with a super warm welcome from Thierry in a setting that is pure mountain and steeped in history and well being.

Les Canailles
Friendly « Bouchon lyonnais” with great quality ingredients and good wine.  

Creative Asiatic fusion food

Le Munchie
Based in the charming and lively Rue de Moulin, this Swedish/Asiatic fusion destination must not be missed. Clean funky modern with a vibrant and youthfull feel this is a great place to start an evening.
Always full so reserve early!

Perfect for families

Rocky Pop 
Not only is this a great place for kids who can run around and play in all the different areas and games, but also one of the best places for you to enjoy reasonably priced and well-made cocktails. Burgers and pizzas are the order of the day, but the menu is permanently evolving and improving. With its retro and funky decor you can eat in an American style booth, a fun and friendly bench table or a Japanese style lowered seating. 
Always full so reserve early! 

The best fun snack and beer place

Little Boxes
Jam (real name!) has the biggest smile and the warmest welcome in Cham. A lovely little place to enjoy a dring, gazing at the mountains and enjoy great simple but freshly prepared food.

The best pancakes in town

La Guinguette des Chavants
My favourite location in town, right on the lake with terrific views up the Valley, simple friendly, affordable and a great ‘dish of the day’ – does what it says on the tin.


In the mountains...
Charming mountain restaurant

Les Vieilles Luges
Claude and Julie are an institution here and their Duck and Farcon almost legendary. In the sun the terrace is superb and when the weather closes in the chalet is authentic and cosy – The only thing that never changes is the warm and friendly welcome – and of course the Genepi!
Always full so reserve early!

Exceptional altitude with stunning views over the ‘Mer de Glace’

Le Panoramique Mer de Glace
Delicious tradtional French cuisine from one of the most stunning terraces in the world!
