Cuisine & Wine


We believe that excellent, restaurant standard, cuisine is an integral part of our holiday experience and naturally we set our standards high. You will find that a passion for both French, British and Global cuisine is reflected in our tasty menus with total emphasis placed on using only the freshest and whenever possible local ingredients.

Home cooking is a great backbone to our cuisine at Chalet Tissieres, but we love to take this further and explore; utilising influences from Europe & further afield.


Whether you have a strenuous or more relaxed mountain day planned, we understand that the right breakfast is key to getting you off to a great start. With this in mind our breakfasts offer a variety of European flavours, including fresh fruit, yoghurt, croissants, pain au chocolat and fresh warm bread with cheeses, meats and cereals of your choice. In addition we also serve breakfast items such as pancakes, eggs & porridge on various days throughout the week.

Afternoon Tea

You will be welcomed back from the mountain to the warm atmosphere of the chalet, with some hot drinks, along with some freshly baked cakes and nibbles.


Dinner is the highlight of the evening, key to this is setting the right atmosphere. With the fire going and the candles glowing, relaxing music in the background and everyone with rosy cheeks fresh from their alpine day, dinner is served.

Example Winter Menu
  • Seared salmon carpacio with a ginger & spring onion sauce
  • Seared Foie, braised pork belly, cranberry puree
  • Roast rib of beef, fondant potato & horse radish cream

We are very passionate about our wines!

Our winter package includes excellent wines as part of your catered service & each evening and you will be treated to a hand-picked and well researched menu to complement our fine food.

We serve a host of classic French wines from the Bordeaux, Rhone, Laugadoc regions, to name but a few, to give our guests a real taste of this country’s famous produce. Additionally, and because we are so close to Italy, you will find some fab Tuscan, Umbrian and Piamonte reds and whites to complete the picture.


With more physical and robust days normally on the cards here in Chamonix in the summer our breakfasts and evening home cooked meals reflect this. With a fresh and fantastic menu lasagne, risottos and freshly bake pies always make regular appearances.

If you require more bespoke evening dining this can always be arranged and fantastic BBQ's in our alpine garden in front of the glacier is always a favourite.

Packed lunches are available for your days trip simply ask the hosts the night before during dinner and we will prepare a delicious ‘peak nic’ for you to pop in your back pack.
