    Great place, friendly staff, good food, fantastic views and lots of walks if you are up for it. Away from the crowds of Chamonix in the height of summer.

    The coffee at the top has no many choices plus bad service.

    Stunning views on the glacier. View on the aiguille du Midi. Terrace fleurie and animated. Regional products. Impeccable home. A must when you're in the corner! Rental of interactive tablets on the history of the glacier.

    The staff was welcoming and very nice. Well, we ate with great views of the glacier Bossons and the Chamonix Valley. The terrace is flowery and animated and the exhibition on the history of the glacier is very interesting.
