We were there twice during our week long hiking holiday, one for dinner and the other for refreshments after hiking. The restaurant sits on a perfect spot for the view of Mont Blanc and the food was excellent with a local touch. Very friendly staff and ambience. We would definitely like to repeat the experience, when we are next in... More

We stumbled across this restaurant when skiing in terrible weather in April. We needed somewhere to recover! We received a very warm welcome and willingness to accommodate our limited budget. We had local fish with melt-in-your-mouth steak tartar and hand-cut chips. It was an interesting fusion and excellent value. The service was very friendly indeed. Unfortunately, the white-out prevented us... More

Great service and decent choice of food and drinks. Unparalleled view of Month Blanc from the terrace which is a sun trap. The terrace menu is slightly abbreviated from the restaurant but we is is quick and with a smile. Some of the dishes are a little below par with bakery basic presentation and ingredients.

We went with a collegue for lunch, we asked to be surved quickly and we were. We took the dish of the day, "boeuf bourguignon with home maid French fries". It was very quickly served and the food was great, the view on the Mont Blanc is breathtaking... Service is good... The coffee was a bit expensive 2,9 euros but... More

We come back here every year, always hoping for the same great food and service. Regardless of cost, this is not a given in France. And today we were not disappointed. We sat in the sun on the terrace, it was inevitably busy given the French, UK, Swiss and Belgian half term holidays, but the staff were friendly, unstressed and... More

Although being extremely busy the staff managed to find us a table outside in the sun. The views of Mont Blanc are priceless. Service was prompt without being rushed and the food was first class. Not the cheapest place for a quick bite to eat but the quality of the food more than makes up the costs.

O'Communailles is one of those little gems that you would only give to close friends for fear that the entire resort would start going there. The place is very cozy both inside and outside, with a nicely decorated terrace offering a stunning view over the Mont Blanc. You could say some other places offer similar setups and could be right,... More
