When it comes to mountain restaurants in Chamonix L'Alpage in the middle of the pistes of the domaine de Balme is hard to beat.
For a start it's a mission to get too. It's over the far side of Le Tour, just up from the Aiguillette des Posettes drag lift. And when we say 'just up from' that means it's actually easy to take the drag lift and ski back down to this little snow covered chalet.
Only open in the winter ski season, this proper alpage setting is superb. On sunny days you can sit on the terrace and eat or just pop by for a drink.
Inside is cramped, but joyful. The menu is mouthwatering full of proper Savoyard favourites like Diots (big, fat sausages cooked in white wine), tartiflette (all cooked individually) and platters with a whole array or cheeses and meats.
Don't expect poshness and luxury. It's always a fight to get a table and the service is friendly, but chaotic. Buy hey, it makes a change from the soul-less canteens we have in Chamonix.
