“Good place for a lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

The food was great and there was not a single bad point about it.

However the place evokes mixed feelings. One would expect a traditional rustic auberge befitting the Gexian countryside, while instead the restaurant is located at the ground floor of an apartment flat - which kind of spoils the mood. For a business lunch it is not a big issue..

“Good food, terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

No matter how good the food is, that standard of service is not acceptable.
1. Their idea of children's menu is the adult menu on a smaller plate. Although nice, kids DO NOT like rare filet steak. This is definitely not a child friendly restaurant.
2. My order was wrong. Instead of bring back the correct order, they just changed the meat and left the same vegetables from the other dish. Although nice, it is not the standard I would expect.
3. Note to the waitresses, it is not illegal to smile.
4. Due to the poor service, we left after the main course but they still decided to charge us for a 3 course menu.
The food is good and if eating as a couple without children and not paying attention to the expression on the waitresses faces, this place is fine. For everyone else, there are plenty more restaurants in the Pays de Gex area I would go to.

Monsieur,

Nous sommes surpris que vous trouviez notre restaurant pas agréable pour les enfants car d'habitude les enfants se sentent très bien dans notre établissement.
- il se peut que le fait que les enfants s'amusant à éteindre et allumer les lampes du restaurant et touchant les couverts et les verres des tables dressées sans qu'un adulte dise quelques choses est compliqué le travail des serveuses. Sachez que ce soir la nous avons du essuyer les plaintes des autres clients du aux cris répétés des enfants.
- effectivement, nous ne servons pas de nuggets, frites et ketchup pour les enfants mais un plat viande ou poisson avec pomme purée maison et légumes frais. Il fallait dans ce cas la nous préciser que vous souhaitiez la viande à point pour les enfants.
- nous nous excusons de l'erreur de commande concernant votre plat. Mais vous aviez choisi un plat chasse, l'erreur a été faite avec un autre plat chasse et la garniture était la même pour ces deux plats.
- quand a l'addition après vérification vous n'avez pas payer des menus entree, plats et dessert mais des menus entrée et plat ou des plats uniques. (303 euros pour 11 personnes)

Nous sommes d'accord que Vous pouvez ne pas aimer un restaurant mais nous vous remercions de rester honnête sur le dérouler des faits.

Cordialement. La direction

“Excellent food - top class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

Hi,

who could suspect an excellent restaurant in Versonnex, hidden under the look of an accidental bistrot on a road of passage? In fact, the food here is excellent. EXCELLENT. you can taste some of the French specialties, and they will remain the reference for quite a while.

“Good food, ambience, at reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

We had their menu at 33euros, tartare de tuna, filet de barre with risotto, both beautifully presented and delicious, the normal classic selection of desserts were nothing special but quite ok. Service was friendly and attentive. Bistro + ambience. Could with more like this in pays de Gex!

“ok, from time to time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2013

I have eaten in this restaurant on a few occasions with the family. Limited choice of dishes, the cuisine is of an acceptable standard. Would not return too often, as there is not enough variation.
