You must have passed in front of it, the Télécabine is located between the Casino and the Couttet park. Your eyes are drawn to the red “egg” perched above the entrance. The sunny terrace with an exceptional view of the Mont Blanc attracts you like a magnet. And sometimes the smell of the French chef’s cooking persuades you that it would be a perfect idea to go for lunch or dinner in this semi-gastronomic restaurant in Chamonix.
Not convinced yet? Here are 5 reasons why you’ll probably book within 15 minutes.
#1 The quality/price ratio and their Bib Gourmand
We agree that the quality-price ratio is one of the criteria of choice when deciding to go to a restaurant. At the Télécabine, this criterion is more than recognized since it was rewarded by the famous Michelin guide in 2019. The gastronomic critic awarded them the prestigious Bib Gourmand for the quality of their complete menu (starter, main course, dessert at lunchtime, Monday to Friday) and of course its reasonable price (32 € I 27 € two courses).
One of the few semi-gastronomic restaurants in Chamonix
The restaurant offers traditional French cuisine. The chef, Mike Guibert, prepares fish from the market like nowhere else. Each dish is cooked with passion, fresh and seasonal products. Gourmets will love it and cheese addicts will enjoy Savoyard specialties.
A guarantee of quality, the menu is simple and the lunch menu changes every Thursday. In addition, the chef offers daily suggestions. The choice is therefore very varied.
If you want to make a good impression on your date, for example, without putting too much money in your wallet, make a reservation at La Télécabine right away! She will be amazed that you invite her to a semi-gastronomic restaurant in Chamonix.
#2 The chic, typical, historical, but modern restaurant
A second point where you’ll get points with the lady… Restaurant decor. Clink glasses in the old Helbronner Gondola that sits in the dining room.
Enjoy watching her look around, as if fascinated. This ambiance, reminiscent of the valley’s first ski lifts, is certainly historic, but modern at the same time. The wooded decor, as in a typical chalet, is simply classy and trendy.
#3 The Terrace with a breathtaking view
Did you know that a semi-gastro meal is not only reserved for the evening, the beautiful dress and the glitter? Especially when a restaurant like La Télécabine has a magnificent terrace with a view of the Mont-Blanc.
Fall for a table in the sun or under the pergola and lose your eyes in the peaks, or his…
What I love about this semi-gastronomic restaurant in Chamonix, besides its refined cuisine, is that the dining room is open to the outside. This feature is as much appreciated at lunch as at dinner.
So what time will you choose?
#4 The team, a family story
If you want your miss to feel like a queen, don’t hesitate. The Guibert family, restaurateurs for 30 years, welcomes you with a smile and courtesy. You are their guest and they have only one idea in mind, to make you spend an exceptional moment.
Béa, the owner, keeps an eye on things and makes sure that no one misses anything. Mike, her husband, is busy in the kitchen so that his dishes impress you as much by the visual as by the flavors. Behind the bar, Axel, their son, prepares cocktails and other refreshments.
They listen to your plans and are always ready to adapt to make them happen, especially to celebrate a special occasion.
#5 The possibility of celebrating an event
More than a semi-gastro restaurant, a real reception venue! Are you looking for a room to rent in Chamonix to celebrate a wedding, a baptism, a birthday, a golden wedding or a professional product launch? Well, look no further!
The Télécabine can accommodate 180 people seated inside and 120 on the terrace. Their strong point is that you can privatize the whole restaurant or one of their spaces (the terrace, the pergola which communicates with a part of the restaurant, the large “table d’hôte” of 16 people of the most convivial…).
Imagine a vin d’honneur on the terrace with the Mont-Blanc in the background, the meal in the dining room and then swaying on the dance floor equipped like a discotheque!
So when are you going to take a seat on La Télécabine? Will you impress your wife (or husband) in this Chamonix semi-gastro or will you organize a special event?
Don’t miss the Valley’s good plans!
