“Look at the worst reviews”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

Long wait. Microwave heated dishes masqueraded as local specialities (Tartiflette etc.) came with a salad drowned in over-vinegared dressing, limp leaves and tough ham of poor quality. Carafe d'eau too warm, local gamay not the best in the world. Plat du jour finished by 1330 on a Saturday and no alternative offered which ruled out the lunch menu. Look on.

“The Corkscrew”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2011

If you are walking through downtown Aix-les-bains, you cannot miss this small restaurant with its colorful facade and wooden statue of a pig inviting you to try it, which we did. The elaborate menu includes meat, fish, and poultry plus a variety of local sausages and cheeses. While my companion chose "la veritable andouillette de troyes," the specialty of the house, I decided to try filet of pike perch (from nearby Lake Bourget). We also ordered a bottle of Macon-Villages, a dry white wine from the Burgundy region. We were both satisfied, but I found my fish a little bland and on the salty side. One drawback: we were seated next to a large noisy group that diminished the romance of our meal.
