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.”

“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!”
