Restaurant Refuge de la Flégère (winter only), Chamonix

Please note, this page is for winter restaurant information and enquiries only (and not for summer refuge accommodation enquiries). 

This restaurant is a great option for those looking for a quick lunch, rather than a full sit-down meal. There's no fixed menu as it has more of a self-service style - you choose your food, similar to a buffet, and pay at the till. Depending on the weather, you can enjoy your meal inside or outside on the terrace.

The restaurant also organises 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.

Located just a few metres below the top station of the Flégère gondola, the restaurant is very easy to find and is accessible by skis or foot in winter. 


Worth knowing

The restaurant is only open on weekends and during the winter school holiday periods (Christmas, New Year, Half Term & Easter).
