Located at the mid-station of the Brevent, where the Planpraz gondola arrives, this beautiful mountain chalet has one of the most beautiful views of the valley.
Come and enjoy a gourmet meal at altitude in one of the best high mountain restaurants in Chamonix, located at Planpraz (Brevent ski area) opposite the Mont Blanc. Opened 20 years ago, it has a good reputation amongst Chamoniards, boasting one of the best views in the valley of the entire Mont Blanc mountain range from its south facing terrace. La Bergerie de Planpraz is holder of the 'Maitre Restaurateur' title since 2014, recently re-awarded in 2019 to recognise that the food is home made with local and fresh produce.
The chef serves a regional menu cooked over a wood fire and House Specials include Boîte Chaude served with assorted cold meat, grilled entrecote, au feu de bois, salads, daily suggestions, farm produced cheese and not forgetting the traditional wild blackcurrant tart. Each week, the menu is updated to offer new suggestions adapted to seasonal produce. There is something for everyone with a new delicious and original vegan menu also available.
The entire menu is translated in to 45 languages online and via a QR code on the tables which you can scan with your phone. You can prepare your visit by reserving a table directly on the restaurant's website or via their Facebook page.
For non-skiers, think Cham Pass' Gourmand! This pass allows you to take the Planpraz gondola and lunch at the Bergerie de Planpraz at a reduced price (on sale at the Brevent & Planpraz ticket offices, restaurant reservation to be made in advance).

For those of you who want a quick snack or takeaway the Comptoir de Planpraz provides a fast lunch stop including: tartiflette, crepes, homemade burgers, and a variety of hot & cold sandwiches. Or grab a drink from the bar and enjoy the sunshine on the large terrace where you'll often find live entertainment throughout the season.
