French-Asian fusion at restaurant Le Cap-Horn

Situated in a quintessentially Alpine chalet, this restaurant exhibits everything you would want from a restaurant in the mountains. Its interior is sleek yet cosy, with exposed-wood catching the flicker of candlelight. Head over to the bar and order yourself a cocktail before sinking into one of the spacious leather sofas; a gentle, intimate atmosphere in which to share a pre-dinner drink. Make your way to your table for the main event: a dinner of French-Asian cuisine with plenty of options for vegetarians. The pan-seared duck and the wagyu beef are among our favorites on this extensive menu. After dinner, you are free to head back into the bar, where you can expect smooth music and dancing.

Head to Le Panier des 4 Saisons for a sophisticated evening out

With a classy, but unpretentious feel to it, Le Panier des 4 Saisons is a great place to spend a winter evening indulging in the mouthwatering French plates and excellent wines. The interior is snug and understated; it's what appears on the plates and in the glasses that makes this restaurant truly special. The grilled seabass and scallops risotto is the perfect balance of light and warming textures - perfect with a glass of pinot Gris d'Alsace. Tucked away down a quiet side street, this restaurant is a real hidden gem.

With the option to takeaway, you can also enjoy these Italian classics from the comfort of your own luxury holiday home in Chamonix. Despite its friendly and unpretentious ambience, Casa Valeiro takes what it does very seriously, particularly when it comes to wine. The 12,000-bottle cellar really makes this an outstanding restaurant to visit on your luxury France holidays.

Enjoy traditional dishes at La Maison Carrier

In the heart of the town, La Maison Carrier pays tribute to the recipes of yesteryear, those traditional French dishes that have traversed the centuries and emerged with the same unscathed reputation of flavor and comfort. In this farm-style restaurant, you can expect to be wowed by everything, from the spread of desserts in the middle of the restaurant to the ambrosial wines and plates rooted in the countryside. This restaurant is part of the same establishment that manages the prestigious Albert 1er, and it's easy to tell that no corners are cut here either.
