First off, there are only about 6 tables, so reservations are strongly recommended. The food is carefully prepared, well presented and excellent. The menu is not over large, but with this type of quality, it's not needed. Everything is GREAT !

Very small so a reservation is vital unless you are really lucky. Great value for excellent food. Made with extreme care and very well presented. Definatly worth a visit.

As almost all restaurants in the city were closed Wednesdays or closed period, we hardly had a choice for dinner. How lucky we were to come here as it was excellent. Not too much of a choice of dishes but something for everyone....meat, fish or vegetarian. The food was not only delicious but beautifully presented and in perfect portions. Prices... More

This is a typical small French restaurant with tables on the street in the summer. There is a good choice of food and the service is attentive and fast. I would definitely recommend for a break during your visit to Evian.

A lovely spot. Service was friendly and exactly to the point. As an example, although we were drinking Bordeaux, I was chatting with our server about Haute Savoie wines, so she poured me a taste. Got to love that. Our food was everything we wanted. Great bread, delicious and affordable wine, an amuse-bouche of just right gazpacho, fresh, tasty salad... More

I'm really not sure why there are so many enthusiastic reviews. The place is tiny and cute. Next to couple of other eateries forming together this little food "tunnel" Food however is very pedestrian, menu offers 3 choices per course Salmon appetizer was strangely just as large of a plate as entree. Beef was covered in a typical cream sauce... More

Stayed a couple of days in Evian, had lunch and dinner in different restaurants, and decided that l'instant gourmand was the best over all! Very tasty food, nicely presented, excellent wine and very friendly service. Pricing ok. Advised.

The food here is not too bad. I would have given it 3 stars only but since that would mean getting an 'average' review which would be unfair, I am giving it 4 - This place is good but not very good though. Nice little restaurant with some interesting dishes. Not cheap cheap though.

What a cute little place. We were a party of six so we took up one-third of the dining-room. The food was very good and the service and ambiance were all extremely convivial. In terms of quality/price you can't do better in Evian. I would strongly recommend this restaurant IF you can get a reservation - it's tiny. But it's... More

The food was good but expensive. We felt it was very over rated. It was suppose to be very special but wasn't.
