Decided to eat here because of its Michelin star and because the owners of our apartment in Annecy recommended it and we weren't disappointed. Situated on an almost invisible little pedestrian alleyway that is all but hidden from the nearby throngs of tourists, La Ciboulette is a quiet and nearly elegant oasis in the overly busy old city of Annecy. The staff are almost too formal but they are efficient and they warmed up over time. The fixed price menu was overwhelmingly delicious--from the initial amuse-bouches including chèvre canapés, and cucumbers in a cream sauce, through two superb appetizers of lobster with wild asparagus and the most amazing roast pigeon in a rich brown mushroom sauce, to main courses of velvety smooth sea bream with asparagus, followed by a superb cheese course and delicately flavored creme fraiche to a dessert course of a cherry clafoutis with crisp sugary wafers and a strawberry mousse served in a chocolate basket accompanied with a light basil ice cream, to the coffee and petit fours accompanied by an astoundingly light but intensely flavorful cherry mousse (it was so delicious that my wife told the waiter that it brought tears to her eyes and he immediately responded by bringing her another), the meal was really all that we could have hoped for. This was not cheap, but for 57 Euros per person it was a memorable and delicious meal prepared and presented with skill and grace.
