We had not done any research and just picked this restaurant as it looked like it had a bit of character (plus it was busy which is usually a good sign). What a great choice we made, wide choice of wines, the food was excellent...More

We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we ate here twice during our stay in Chamonix. First, the atmosphere is fun. There are tables on various levels and in many alcoves. Each area is heavily decorated with various collections of hunting treasures, copper pots, an...More

I visited at the end of September. We had to wait around 30 minutes for a table which was not a problem. The food and service was great in a lovely setting. The restaurant was really busy (always A good sign). I would definitely recommend...More

The first time we went to Chamonix I wanted to try the "red sheep" restaurant. When we brought our adult children back to visit Chamonix I suggested this place. I nicknamed it the "red sheep" restaurant because it has two large sheep with red wool...More

We sat outside, seduced by the cosy sheepskin blankets and colourful alpine decor! The inside of the restaurant is a sight to see though so if you do as we do then make sure you at least go inside to use the bathroom! The service...More
