Bar
“Les Caves is a great wine and cocktail bar, with chic decoration and cozy atmosphere thanks to many lounges in a cocooning spirit. A Lounge-bar perfect for partying with friends, relaxing with a pre-dinner drink or sharing a moment of conviviality. Regular DJs and live bands play on various nights of the week, low-key jazz/blues early in the evenings and more upbeat tunes later on. ”

French Restaurant

“Rediscover the cuisine from the past – A more rustic version from the same owners of the Albert Premiere, la Maison Carrier is set in a beautiful converted barn – In the centre of the restaurant, racks of lamb and suckling pig are slowly spit-roasted in the open fire.”

“Don’t miss a visit to this family favourite of ours. If you are after a real bar with character then you have to visit AVOCADO ! Great bar, fantastically friendly staff, easy going atmosphere, playing some great music and interesting locals. Alex, the owner is an absolute legend, makes you feel very comfortable and he loves what he does which makes it a better experience. The highlight here is a large beer garden and bar out back, perfect for summer days. You can’t beat having the view of the Eiger Mountain while having a delicious beer. It is simply awesome!”

“Great local vibe for cocktails, beer. Food is served during regular meal times, and people seem to love it. Also check Elevation 1904 next door, not listed on Google or Airbnb but a great spot for locals. The barman rocks and by the way, holds the medal for the best Espresso Martini!”

Bar
“The best italian food in Chamonix, at least in our book. Delicious pizzas, pastas, vitello tonato and traditional desserts. We've always been able to get a table without a reservation but if you're a party of 4 or more, it's better to reserve in advance, especially if you'd like to have dinner by the river. Take-away is also available.”

Lounge
$$
“- You are looking for drinks or snacks: In a nearly pub-like place: Gees serves on the main floor. Gigs play fom 10pm there: I mean a high end snack with a very fancy cocktail or a great bottle from a selected savvy cave or a home made non-alcoholic lightly sweetened Ginger Beer (as a non sugar and non alcohol drinker, zis is MY recommendation) - You are looking for the best sushis in town, go downstairs in the restaurant. Please book in advance as everyone knows they are the best - You want to dance and party, go downstairs too!”
