L'Atmosphère, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

123 Place Balmat
France 74400
Tel: 33 4 50 55 97 97's insider take:

Situated on the banks of the River Arve in the middle of town, L'Atmosphère's tables are packed but the service is impeccable. Dishes are dictated by what's available in the market on a daily basis, and could include snails in sweet garlic cream or lobster roasted in basil and tomato. The restaurant also specializes in traditional mountain dishes such as fondues and pierre chaude (a hot stone on which you grill your own beef, duck, and chicken).

Open daily noon to 2 pm and 7 to 11 pm.
