This place is what makes Megeve, Megeve. And doesn't exist anymore.... It was destroyed by fire last summer. Rebuild as fast as you can, Megeve needs you!

The decor is cute, and nice open fires. However, the menu is quite basic, and more hearty dishes are all basically stodge (potatoes galore). Simpler plates of meats and the like are available.
