Let us surprise you with refined cuisine proposed by our chef Giacomo.
This lover of cooking selects the finest products of the Alps for you to sample dishes from a panel between local delicacies and Italian cuisine. Plan Joran is the most upscale restaurant we could find on the slopes of the Chamonix Valley.
Always in search of the perfect combination of flavours and texture, our chef de cuisine, Franco, proposes new set menus every week. At the Plan Joran, which has held the title of the Maître Restaurateur for 4 years, you can enjoy cuisine that is both traditional and original, with a special emphasis on the quality and freshness of the products. On the pistes of the legendary Grands Montets, surrounded by a larch forest, you can enjoy traditional cuisine with regional influences. Everything on the menu is prepared using fresh, high-quality products. With mountain-style décor and exposed beams, the charm of this larch wood chalet is indisputable.
Sit out on the terrace or inside the chalet, either way your lunch will be delicious!
For example you can choose “The Savoyard Menu”, which offers dishes from our Haute-Savoie region: Air-dried Grisons beef carpaccio, Capuns with Ferme de Montractomme cheese and savory oil; fillets of perch from Lake Geneva with tempura hollandaise or blueberry sabayon. You can also opt for "The Chef's Menu” which varies depending on the market of the day: Crayfish tail gratin and Mr Peitit’s trout dumplings; Roast Savoy prime rib of beef; Sirloin steak burger with Coca-Cola sauce; Mountain lamb shoulder confit with cumin, sweet potato fondue, dates and walnut sauce with black sesame; Flank steak with shallots and carrots and mashed potatoes; Hare à la royale, Cardinale sauce and Apple Charlotte; Roast duck breast with spiced wine on a bed of vegetables and spring onions etc...
And at the end of the meal, don’t hesitate to choose from the selection of cheeses from the farms of our mountain pastures.
Foodies will not be able to resist our home-made desserts. Try our Chocolate soufflé with a passion fruit centre; Apple and mango Tarte Tatin with kiwi coulis, or even the house special: “The Mont Blanc”, a dessert featuring a white chocolate shell, meringue and chestnut cream.
In short: a dish on the menu that we would really like to share!

Cathy, Director of chalet
This Nantes reached the age of 18 in Chamonix. She began working in a legendary restaurant in the valley: Le Dahu, where she met the love and never left ...
What was to be a season in the mountains eventually lasted for almost 30 years. Love snow, winter.
She made her arms aloft to Lognan, Flégère, or Charamillon Sheepfold. Still, she remains committed to Plan Joran since she started working there at the age of 20 years as a waitress.
She enjoys working with his chef Giacomo Iovino because they share the same vision of the restoration: serving refined cuisine market and well presented.
This woman of the land, a lot of fun to get to know its customers, besides, many regulars come regularly spend time in the Plan Joran restaurant, for cooking but also for the home.
Giacomo Iovino, Head chef
Our chef, Giacomo Lovino (nicknamed ‘Franco’) really loves what he does. He offers mouth-watering and refined semi-gourmet cuisine, centred on home-made dishes and Alpine produce. Delicacy, taste and friendly service are our Italian chef’s priorities. Franco’s cuisine continues to delight diners thanks to high-quality products and the chef’s mastery of his culinary repertoire.
Aurélie, Executive Assistant
After his studies in administration, law and commerce, our lovely room charge initially worked in the restaurant to pay for his studies.
But she fell in love of the profession and has never emerged! Between the Pyrenees and Corsica, Aurélie built his experience and learns the field for 6 years.
For the record, she does not like the cold, but the charm Plan joran has bewitched!
A unique evening in perspective where Cathy and her team will make you fall under the charms of the mountains!
Genuine love of cooking, our chef Giacomo Iovino offers fine cuisine based on products of the Alps and homemade. Delicacy, taste and friendliness are the key words of your evening.
