Le Rosebud Restaurant, Le Lavancher

Wonderful gourmet cuisine with fresh home grown ingredients

Thanks to a fantastic chef, this restaurant has become one of the best restaurants in the Chamonix Valley. Over the past 10 years, Chef Eric Ganck has developed an art form of mixing herbs and spices, creating an original and refined gastronomic signature of his own.

Many of the dishes are created from produce grown in the kitchen garden: wild celery, serpolet (wild thyme), origanum, marjoram, borage, melissa, mint, tarragon, Roman camomile, hyssop, savory, coriander, bloodwort, medicinal sage, chives, cress, sorrel, thyme, citrus thyme, cive, purple basil, nasturtium...

Located in the Jeu de Paume Hotel, this restaurant serves original and inventive cuisine around three themes, one for each set menu available: World Flavours, Region and Classics.

Open daily from 12:15 to 14:00 and from 19:15 to 21:15 except Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.


Visitor comments

  • "In this small hotel a few kilometres out of Chamonix at Le Lavancher is the Hotel Restaurant Le Rosebud. The food was excellent, with interesting flavours, combinations and wines. Two of us went with daily menus and were rewarded with taste sensations. Not cheap (around 400 euros for 4) but worth it. Service was friendly and engaging, with a little bit of good-natured cheekiness thrown in - not something I often associate with French waiters. All in all a great night." - Trip Advisor
  • "Great lunch stop on our car tour. Very professional friendly service. The tables were in a lovely courtyard. We all enjoyed an excellent one course lunch. The food was top quality. We are glad that we called here." - Trip Advisor
  • "Amazing quality food. We had several breakfasts here as well - all very good. Fantastic wine parings as well. My only complaint was lack of cream for coffee (perhaps an American thing)." -  Trip Advisor
