“Good food, bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

Family members highly recommended it as a mix of good food and reasonable prices. Their appraisal was correct but at lunch time the restaurant was full and there was only one person to attend the tables. The result was an inevitable poor service, long delays, requests unanswered. A restaurant is not only good food. A minimum of services is required or clients won't go back. I won't.

“very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2013

Great expectations considering the previous reviews. I thought the food is overpriced, looks pretty enough on the plate, but does not deliver on flavour. Very disappointing wine list, limited in choice. Decor is ok, nothing special, found the service to be friendly enough, if not a bit slow.
A shame that it didn't live up to its billing, as there is a distinct lack of good restaurants in Pays de Gex. Wouldn't bother with a second visit.
