L'Impossible Restaurant, Chamonix Sud

Gourmet Italian restaurant with a vegetarian, gluten & dairy free menu

Serving a selection of mostly organic produce with an Italian influence on the style, this restaurant takes every care not to over-complicate their dishes so you can enjoy the true flavour of the ingredients. 

The restaurant is within a chalet dating back to 1754 and has a charming traditional feel which ties in nicely with the welcoming and warm atmosphere.

You can tell that the chefs are really passionate about their food; they use only the best and freshest ingredients, making all dishes from scratch. Enjoy delicious home made pasta, breads and ice-creams. 

Unlike many places in France, this restaurant has an extensive vegetarian menu, with dishes including fresh pumpkin ravioli and green lentil terrine with fontina cheese. In addition, most of the food is gluten and dairy free making this a truly unique restaurant in the heart of Chamonix. 

The restaurant also has an extensive wine cellar with over 300 labels so you are bound to fine the perfect accompaniment to your meal. 

Every Friday night, the restaurant has live swing, valse and tralal music to make your dining experience even more unique and fun.  

The restaurant is open daily from 18:30 to 22:00, lunch reservations can be made for groups of 12 or more. 

If you really enjoy their food, you can pop back for a cooking course and learn how to make some of the dishes yourself!
