The way it works is you choose your food, pay at the till and then enjoy your meal inside or outside on the terrace. It is a great way to have a quick, proper meal for lunch without having to take a long break. There's no fixed menu and every day they will have different specials on offer.

The restaurant also organizes regular live music events. Their panoramic terrace offers breathtaking views of the Chamonix Valley and the Mont-Blanc massif, making it the ideal place to relax and watch live music.
