    La Calèche: Fondue Savoyarde, of course!

    by Martinewezel Updated Aug 5, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you happen to have a rainy day while staying in Chamonix, come to restaurant "La Calèche" and spent the afternoon eating and wine tasting.

    The place could be called a theme restaurant, but it's not, it's real! Pots and pans are hanging at the wooden ceiling. The furniture and the walls are made in pine-wood. The whole restaurant breaths an Alpine atmosphere.
    The waiters wear traditional costumes and the food is de-li-ci-ous!

    On Tuesday night there is live music and danse. great!

    Favorite Dish: We had the local dish: Fondue Savoyarde. The dish is accompanied by local
    "charcuteries", such as sausages and several ham varieties.

    A white Fendant wine is an excellent match for this dish.

    Le national: Again "Fondue Savoyarde"!

    by Martinewezel Written Aug 7, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant, located at the opposite of restaurant la Calèche (see previous tip) has a cosy terrace with spacious parasols. We prefer this one for a dinner at noon.

    We have been here twice in 2 years. And twice we regretted. Not because the food wasn't ok, no on the contrary! But it took us 2 weeks to loose the weight we gained after a delicious Fondue Savoyarde!

    To be honest... for those Americans who feel cheated when eating in Europe because of the small portions (sometimes with good reason)... order a Fondue Savoyarde and you will have to crawl back to your hotel on your knees!

    Favorite Dish: Just a tip: don't ask for sangria as aperitive. They haven't a clue about it

    L'Atelier Cafe: Sunny cafe

    by Toshioohsako Written Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Its a cafe but is serving salad and other light meal items. It is a cozy place to talk to you friends or other tourists. Its a very sunny and coffee and other things can be served outside as long as it is sunny. You need to be of course warmly dressed.

    Favorite Dish: Coffee and sand-witches and salad

    Bar du Plan de l'Aiguille: The only bar in the area

    by Martinewezel Updated Aug 23, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's especially the location of this chalet which makes from the bar a unique place. The view is stunning, both in good and bad weather.

    The café also has it's souvenir's corner. They sell T-shirts, cow bells, snow balls, ballpoints... the usual knickknacks. But... contrary to the "Companie du Mont Blanc shop down at the cable car station, the prices here are cheaper.

    In this tip I included a sunny photo and a snow photo, both taken in Summer.
    I also uploaded a small video of this bar, made in August 2009. It was very sunny then. However, you'll see the parasols fluttering very hard. At this elevation, a sweather is always necessary.

    Favorite Dish: We just had a coffee to warm up a bit.

  • La Caleche: Lovely Food and Service

    by hillwalker123 Written Jul 24, 2006

    A lovely french family restaurant, which as Firechick mentioned in her great pages, has its interior decorated by pots/pans/boots of all descriptions and age. We went there in July this year, 2 adults and two kids. Service was exceptional, the kids were given colouring/puzzle books amd a present while the adults had the meal. Traditional Savoyarde food, very high quality. We had a three course set meal for 20 euro each, kids just cost 7:50 with Main course and desert. The other good point from a family point view, is La Caleche offer non " nuggets and chips etc " options for kids. My daughter had a salmon fillet and basmati rice, which was very nice.
    Overall a great experience, we went back there 3 times, and really enjoyed the experience

    Favorite Dish: French onion soup with cheese, beef casserole. All desserts were delicious and generous

    Munchies: Modern Fusions

    by iammon Written Apr 22, 2009

    If you need a change to the Savoyan foods this is an excellent choice. They serve modern dishes with Asian influence even direction Japanese and Sushi.
    Its a very nice and cozy place. It is really small only with a few tables that are normally taken. So you should make a reservation. The chef is Swedish and it seems that local people like the place as well.

    Favorite Dish: After the good dinner they have yummy desserts.

    La Pause - Café Bar in St Gervais les Bains: Café Gourmand

    by Flying.Scotsman Written Feb 25, 2014

    If you are changing trains on your way to or from Chamonix, stop here for a café gourmand - an espresso coffee with several small pastries. This is a great way to pass the time waiting for the train while taking in the spectacular view of the surrounding mountain scenery.
