  • "How High Can you Go - Just when the clouds couldn't break any further, we popped into Le 3842 to check it out and to our dismay there was a table! Only a wee place, the cuisine is quite good and the experience spectacular. Don't let prices dissuade you--think of bringing all these wonderful ingredients this far up a mountain, only to be served by a true gentleman. Do not miss the opportunity! - Trip Advisior
  • "Top of Europe - It is the closest spot that you can set foot on to the highest point in Europe, Mont Blanc..The panorama is fabulous. You are surrounded by the tallest peaks in Europe, looking down to the town of Chamonix that is 2800 meters below..The weather is thin and clean, just above the clouds. Fascinating - in one word." - Trip Advisior
  • "Great Meal Reasonably Priced - We had a great meal today. Prime rib, salmon, chart fish and a gormet hamburger. We'll prepared, presented, and very tasty. Definitely a great time." - Trip Advisor
