La Cremerie du Glacier Restaurant, Argentiere

Savoyard restaurant in a beautiful forest
Featured in: Mountain Restaurants Updated

Open in summer and winter, this charming restaurant serves all the traditional Savoyard dishes including farçon, fondues, omelettes, gratins and croutes.

Built in 1926, this small wooden chalet started as a "cremerie" (a place serving mainly dairy products, such as hot chocolate, butter tarts and other cakes) in the 1950s. The restaurant has been run by the same family ever since.

Reservations can be made from 10:00 onwards. Open from mid December to mid May (closed on Wednesday in winter) and from the end of June until mid September in summer.

Worth knowing

They do the best (in our opinion) croutes anywhere in the Chamonix Valley and they also have a great range of fondues to choose from. 

Visitor comments

  • "Best Fondue Savoyard not only in Chamonix Valley but from anywhere i have tried in the Haute Savoie. Something that appears to be so simple is so much better than everywhere else! Incredible! I love the Fondue Alpage with supplement chanterelles - delicious!" - Trip Advisor
  • "Such a beautiful spot to go for lunch or dinner. Right in the forest so a unique experience. You must love cheese as most things on the menu contain cheese. Very tasty food." - Trip Advisor
  • "Visited here twice and had a great experience both times. This is an authentic, old establishment which serves lovely Savoyard food (lots of cheese, bread and meat). Very cosy feel. Book in advance for evening meal as a fairly small place. Fondue is excellent." - Trip Advisor
