Le 3842 Restaurant, Chamonix

Situated at the summit of the Aiguille du Midi at 3842m

At the top of the Aiguille du Midi, the 3842 is one of the highest restaurants in Europe. The cable car access is spectacular and the 360 degree view is breathtaking.

The chef is happy to welcome you every day in summer from 12h to 15h.

The restaurant is fully equipped to host seminars, with a capacity for 26 people, a video projector, a white screen and a flipchart. Please phone to discuss reservations.

  • "This is a tiny restaurant where you must make reservations. the food was surprisingly good. it's expensive but that's not surprising given how much work it must be to get the supplies up there! the inside of the restaurant could use some refreshing but that's not a show-stopper. I would note that only the tables next to the window have a view. however that's not a big deal given that you've come in from the outside where there was a stunning view already!" - Trip Advisior
  • "Le 3842 offered a great set menu for lunch with various options. I was delighted with the bread and starter pate. The rest of the meal paired with wine was delicious! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Lunch at Le 3842 completed an amazing day at L'aiguille du Midi!"  - Trip Advisior
