Le Bartavel, Chamonix Mont-Blanc

Pleasantly surprised  - a lesson learnt

OK i admit i was not very impressed by the exterior or interior of this place. It was slightly drab, old and had these awful tacky blue fairy lights on the windows. Considering its surrounded by much nicer looking restaurants  they could have done better. I was somewhat dragged there by somebody, who wanted to save 50 cents on a pizza.

But wow, this is was definitely one of the best pizzas i have tasted in Chamonix so far, and i have had a fair few. So bad me for reading a book by it cover. We both had pizzas, i had the Frutti di Mare (seafood) and my friend the Tonno e Cipolla (tuna and onion), both were excellent, and the house wine was also up to scratch.

On the rest of the menu, they offer a range of salads, pastas, gnocchi... Looking at what was delivered to the surrounding tables, the food looked well presented, with good portions. I shall definitely keep this place in mind next time i am in town, and need to save myself 50 cents. Oh, they also do take away.

The service in the restaurant was good and efficient  We had a very friendly, kind waiter. The restaurant did not have WiFi, but waiter helped us out. How kind. He earn't a slightly bigger tip for that.
