A jewel of a find after a cable car ride and a steep walk to view the glacier. The chalet just seems to radiate sunshine and joy. We did not eat, but enjoyed a delicious glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Stunning views and warm, friendly service. We loved it.

this chalet came at the end of a steep walk up form the valley floor. (we could have taken the cable car right to the door, but that's cheating). I ordered a well deserved beer and Helen ordered a crepe. after one taste of the crepe I was compelled to order food for myself. ham and cheese crepe with fries... More

Best place for glacier view and for omelets in Chamonix. Nice walk in the forest to go to the chalet or you can have a funny ride on a old chairlift for your kids. And for sure the best Genepy offer by the owners.

Take the Bossons chairlift - a lovely ride, super views on the way down - and at the top you reach the Chalet. Nice food, very well priced and a marvellous view of the glacier (enhanced by a trail to a viewing point). A lovely way to spend an hour or two.

The chairlift to the glacier is a 10 min ride followed by a short walk up to the viewing platform. Very good view of the glacier and a little restaurant up top. Several mentions of the two AirIndia plane crashes from the 50's and 60's along with airplane parts brought down by the glacier over the years.

We ate here this past weekend. The views from this restaurant are amazing! Especially when it's a hot sunny day like it was for us. It was busy so that's a good sign. 3 of us ordered omelette's. And because 2 had ordered the same one they made 1 omelette that had to be shared! Even the chips had to... More

We reserved a table for 6 (which during the week is probably not necessary). We received a warm welcoming and enjoyed the local beer served ice cold in special glasses! The choice of food is simple, my croute au fromage was excellent, and the service continued to be friendly and efficient. They do not have running water up there so... More
