By summer, or typically winter (out of all of our regional and London airports to Geneva), Chamonix is a favourite for everyone – ski, climb, hike, bike and, in this instance, dine.
There are three standout restaurants that Enjoy has been lucky enough to frequent over a number of trips, flying out of all our International Airports and London. Driving is a really viable option as well – and why not take your time, especially if there is a physical challenge at the end of the journey?
At just over 1000m, Chamonix is an archetypal Alpine town and some! It is chic, shabby, cool, and attracts those that love great food and exceptional service.
La Cabane des Praz
Just a few minutes out of town is La Cabane des Praz, and probably at the height of the Euro and service bracket, this is a treat – crisp linen tablecloths, open fires, stunning wine list and impeccable service, and a view over Mont Blanc that almost takes your eye off the menu.
Go for tartare de veau, soup froide, filet de truite saumonée and get into any denomination of cheeses from their infamous cheese board – ravioles aux 4 fromages – the desserts are stunning as is the ambiance. It is formal but don’t worry about that – after all this is Chamonix!

La Cabane des Praz, Chamonix Mont Blanc
In the centre of town is Les Caves – open from 6pm and coming alive late at night.
It’s great for a group – eating, drinking, and dancing. The menu is made up of sushi and cocktails – what could be more appealing?
Settle in any one of the alcoves or on any one of the floors – all designed beautifully and order that sushi – there’s live entertainment over the weekends and holidays, and it is cool, enjoy it!

Les Chalets de Phillipe
At 1250m, Lavancher is home to Les Chalets de Phillipe a beautiful, relaxed, top-notch restaurant and hotel made up of chalets and spa – we were even tempted by a deck top hot tub before our degustation menu when we visited late in April! A welcome from the owner, their Jack Russell, and a sun-drenched terrace overlooking the mountains and a menu as out of the world as the view.
Course after course with wine pairing and charming service – also serving the best hot chocolate in the mountains!
