There's a wide range of restaurants in Chamonix to suit all tastes, and budgets. Read our guide on all the best places to eat in Chamonix and where to find your favourite style of cuisine.
|Hameau Albert 1er||La Maison Carrier||Atmosphère|
|This 1* Michelin restaurant has been run by the family Carrier and Maillet for many generations. Chamonix’s leading gastronomic restaurant with a passion to stay true to the evolution of Haute-Savoie tradition. This is evident throughout, from the welcome to the decor and the menus themselves. An excellent restaurant with an exceptional wine list if you are looking for the finest dining experience in the region.||Albert 1er’s second gastronomic restaurant, this traditional Savoyard restaurant has a welcoming ambience, a feel of the olden days in what feels like a farm setting but matched with modern charm. Authentic Savoyard cuisine; a fusion between the present and past, many guests prefer this restaurant to its big brother next door, as it has a more relaxed, authentic setting. Not to mention the valley's best dessert trolley.||Situated in the town centre, with a covered terrace overlooking the river, the restaurant has a smart, refined and warm atmosphere. Mentioned in the top guides (Michelin, Gault&Millau), the cuisine is of an excellent quality, combining gastronomic French tradition with the simplicity of the Savoyard cuisine. The restaurant also has a very nice wine list. Ask for a table overlooking the river when you reserve. In my view from a culinary perspective, the best value French restaurant in Chamonix.|
|Le Matafan||La Télécabine|
|Located in the heart of Chamonix, the Matafan welcomes you in an elegant and warm setting designed by Sybille de Margerie, for a spontaneous and relaxing culinary experience. Wether in the inviting dining room (lovely open fire in the center) or at the outside tables facing the large swimming pool, the food goes down a treat! The menu, which is quite short, evolves with the seasons and has a few italian influences. Friendly service.||Tucked away on a quiet street behind the casino and with a fantastic view of the Aiguille du Midi. It serves very good French cuisine in a polished dining room that also manages to feel lively and atmospheric. Set menus start from two courses at lunchtime for 21€ and go up to 38€ for a three course evening meal. They have a good selection of French wines and champagne.|
|La Calèche||Monchu||Le Tremplin|
|The Calèche serves traditional Savoyard cuisine in the heart of Chamonix. Here you will find over 20 Savoyard specialties including fondue, raclette, pierrade and much more. Typical Chamoniard ambiance in this warm and welcoming restaurant. This is a big venue, ideal for large groups, but not recommended for a private setting for a romantic meal! Packed full of interesting Savoyard antiques and artefacts; reservations recommended.||Restaurant Le Monchu in Chamonix, a few steps from the casino, this place is unmissable. Enjoy our finest meals by the fire.
The chef's pride is the reblochonnade, the raclette à l'ancienne, the fondue. Special meals we deliver with love. We promise you would want to come back!
Groups are welcomed on reservation. Save your seat by the fireplace! Call for reservations!
|Charming restaurant at the foot of the Bossons glacier with a magnificent view of the Mont-Blanc. Very friendly welcome and excellent Savoyard fondue to be eaten whatever the season even in the middle of summer. You will enjoy a very local atmosphere and traditional dining here.|
|Munchie Bar et Cuisine - Mexican||La Cabane des Praz - Modern French cuisine||Mumma - Asian|
|Munchie has become one of the valley’s most popular restaurants. New-school food with the flavours of Mexico and Europe all mixed up in classic dishes. A friendly and young, cool atmosphere. You should book well in advance to avoid disappointment. If you're looking for a well prepared meal in an easy going atmosphere, this would be our recommendation. Pop over the road for a cocktail afterwards at JOIA.||Combining a traditional wooden lodge with modern interior design, occupying an enviable location in the Chamonix Valley, right next to the open expanses of the golf course. La Cabane des Praz offers excellent contemporary French cuisine in relaxed and welcoming surroundings. Another one of our favourites, with a sunny terrace with stunning views of the Mont Blanc for the summer, and cosy snugs and a roaring fire in the winter. Plus a great wine list on offer.||Born in Stockholm, cooking since he was 5 yrs old, resident and chef in Chamonix since 2005, David's talent has lead him around the world, cooking in some of the hottest scenes from LA to Cape town. Mumma is very proud to serve David Lillieroth’s borderless, crazy-tasty cuisine, in a non-pretentious, néo-bistrot atmosphere. Mumma is designed with sharing in mind; the space, the menu, the saké. With everyone in the same room, it's bustling, a little noisy, and full of life.|
|Caphorn - Asian Seafood|
|Situated by the river Arve on Rue du Moulin is Le Cap Horn. It’s a little surprising to see memorabilia from the ocean in Chamonix, but this emphasises that seafood is the star of the menu. There are also local specialties and a host of meat dishes to choose from. The restaurant offers a great value lunchtime menu, an oyster bar, and a ranges of sushi platters that can be enjoyed in Les Caves, the wine bar on the ground floor.|
|Restaurant Casa Valerio - Italian||L’impossible - Organic cuisine||Neapolis - Italian|
|Enjoy perfectly made italian dishes in this traditional pizzeria. This familial restaurant is run by Valerio Commazetto and his son Marco, who both won the title of world vice-champion of pizza. Here you'll find carefully selected products: fresh veggies, 60 days matured meat, wild fish, and organic flour. This restaurant is the first ever in France -and the 3rd in the world- to have won the neapolitan pizza ISO certification.||Interesting restaurant in a farmhouse dating back to 1754; beautifully decorated with large chandeliers and fireplace. A recent change of ownership and change of food, the historic restaurant “L’Impossible” has transformed itself to become the first organic restaurant and natural cuisine in Chamonix. Friday night is Jazz night. For something completely unique in the valley, you won't be disappointed!||Situated in the Galerie Alpina, Neapolis specialises in Neopolitan food; bruschetta with marinated anchovies, calamari en barca, spaghetti aux fruits de mer and gnocchi alla sorrentina are just some of their specialities, as well as over twenty varieties of pizza, and for dessert... the infamous tiramisu or panacotta. A good family restaurant, cosy and atmospheric in the winter and in the summer they have tables along the River Arve.|
LUNCHTIME MOUNTAIN RESTAURANTS
|Restaurant La Crèmerie du Glacier||Café Comptoir||Bergerie de Planpraz|
|Pure Chamonix history with a thoroughly relaxed atmosphere that would be hard to replicate elsewhere. La Crèmerie – at a heady height of 1300m in Argentière – had become known far and wide for its cheesy croûtes, fondue and other Savoyard staples. It still is today. Well worth heading up the valley to enjoy traditional Savoyard dishes under the pine trees in the summer months. Also an excellent lunch spot in the winter months||Café Comptoir, situated at the bottom of the Vallorcine gondola. This warm and cozy restaurant and cafe with its modern chalet style interior offers Italian cuisine combining Swiss and Italian seasonal products. Food comes served on slates including, among other things, large colourful salads, melted Reblochon cheese dishes, morel and chanterelle mushrooms, prime rib with fresh vegetables, to name a few||The Bergerie de Planpraz welcomes you at an altitude of 2000 meters. Located on the south side, the restaurant offers a large sunny terrace facing the Mont Blanc massif. Come and eat at the Bergerie de Planpraz and enjoy an exceptional view on the Mont Blanc and the Chamonix valley. This high altitude restaurant is an emblematic place of the valley and welcomes hikers during the summer season or skiers for their lunch break in winter.|
|Le 3842||Le Panoramic - Mer de Glace|
|Get away from the hustle and bustle at the summit of the Aiguille du Midi and take the time to enjoy a meal in this intimate restaurant. Despite being at high altitude, all the dishes are homemade with fresh produce and the menu changes regularly. In addition to being in one of the highest restaurants in Europe in the heart of the Mont-Blanc massif, you can enjoy a real fine-dining experience, the team will be at your disposal to offer you an extra special lunch.||Here the view on the Mer de Glace and the Drus is breathtaking. In a modern yet authentic atmosphere, discover the charm of a traditional dairy infused with a modern industrial spirit. Tiled floors, hints of wood, the sober and refined decoration gives way to an incredible view. Great food & incredible views.|
RELAXED PUB STYLE DINING FOR LUNCH OR DINNER
|MOO BAR||MBC||Le Shack|
|Open every day from 11:30 to 01:00, and providing daily après-ski with great live music and DJs, to be enjoyed with classic cocktails and ice cold beers. Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Why not try their home-made burgers (a favourite with the locals), Swedish meatballs, or their plat du jour for lunch, which includes a salad buffet and a meat, fish or veggie option to choose from.||
The MBC was founded in 2002 by beer lovers who were looking for that perfect brew after a day in the fresh mountain air. Long before artisan beer became fashionable, these guys were setting the standards with craft beers brewed on site, using only the finest ingredients and the freshest water in the Alps. Sit back and enjoy a local beer. And while your at it, why not tuck into one of their après menu specials; our favourite has to be a big bowl of nacho’s, perfect for sharing.
|This outdoor informal terrace and bar linked to Mumma, offers a relaxed atmosphere is an everchanging menu of asian tapas to be enjoyed with a cold beer or Aperol Spritz.|
