This place was highly recommended on Tripadvisor so we made a reservation for what we were told over the phone was the 2nd seating of the evening. When we got there they didn't acknowledge a reservation had been made but not a big issue since...More

We went here after a disastrous visit to Cap Horn (avoid). Food was first rate. Service was excellent. Wonderful outdoor space with lovely views. We have visited three times since.

this is my favorite restaurant when it comes to eat local cuisine : plat savoyard. The raclette, the fondues...the cheese is excellent. I go to this restaurant each time that I am in town ! The decoration is typical alps style

We enjoyed a wonderfully memorable meal at Le Monchu with another couple. One couple ordered the hot stone beef meal and the other traditional raclette heated by a charcoal mini stove. Service and atmosphere were both great.

We had the traditional fondue savoyarde. Good quality for 17 EUR per person. They have different styles with extra charcuterie if you don't think that the cheese is filling enough. Kids meal at around 10 EUR was ok.

Visited as a party of 5 plus toddler. Staff very child friendly. Good selection of meals. Enjoyed a good chicken ceasar salad whilst others choose to cook their own meat over a hot stone. Excellent baked potatoes served with the meat. Well worth a visit....More
