Auberge du Bois Prin | The Macadame - 43

My mum is such a darling.

For part of our Christmas present she booked us in for lunch at Auberge du Bois Prin in Chamonix. It’s this gorgeous restaurant with large glass windows over looking the alps.

She knows we love a good lunch and we really loved this lunch.

The menu was set but we had a choice 2 for entree, main and dessert.

We started with little savoury treats compliments of the chef…

Then the terrine…

And truffle risotto for entree…

I chose the scallops with chorizo and olives for main…

The mister went with roast beef with a side of a yorkshire pudding type thing…

We needed a while before we could attempt this cheese platter…

Then on to dessert. This cake dessert was nice but not amazing…

BUT. The real stand-out was this chocolate ice-cream ball in a chocolate soup… It was choclatey, oh so creamy and the dark chocolate hat topped it off perfectly…

I was so hoping that the coffee would be as good as the food but sadly I was disappointed. Why must no where have good coffee in France?

They can do petit fours though. So it’s not all bad.

Thoroughly stuffed, we stretched our legs on the balcony and enjoyed the view…

It may still need a bit of work.

I’m wearing a Zara navy blouse, I can’t find it anymore so here’s one similar.

Thanks mum, we had a perfect day!

      Isn’t it beautiful Jill – when were you here? What was Atmosphere like? I’ve been meaning to try it but haven’t gotten around to it! You must come back 🙂
