“The Parc Animalier de Merlet is not a zoo. It's a reserve for deer, chamois, bouquetins, marmots, llamas and more. Come see the animals in their natural habitat.”

Japanese Restaurant

“Nice concept - Perfect for a romantic evening- It is a fusion food restaurant mixing the Japanese and Swedish cuisine . The concept is to share small plates and savors. Price can be a bit high around 100euros for two persons .”

“A chamonix institution. This is where to hang out after skiing the vallee blanche, shopping in town or pretty much any time. You haven't seen Chamonix life if you haven't visited Elevation.”

“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.”

“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.”

Italian Restaurant

“The restaurant is on the edge of the old town, and although the outside is not inspiring, it is certainly different once inside. A modern feel to the place with a great atmosphere and music. Sometimes there are live artists playing. The food is excellent as well, with a variety of local dishes. Service very friendly. +39 393 302 615”
