I was invited to lunch last week at Les Ancolies by a friend and had a very pleasant meal. We both had the Salade Perigordine as an entree and then scallops on a bed of sweet-potato* with gambas for the main course- first time I had tasted that particular vegetable*. My friend chose a Bourgueil to accompany our meal and it was a nice surprise to find it had more body than I normally expect from a Loire wine.
I very much enjoyed both courses, but particularly the scallops and gambas which were succulent. The service was fine but more noteworthy for its warmth and welcoming attitude than simply serving skills.
We took coffee on the roof-terrace which was a joy on such a beautiful day, looking out onto the forest which stops about 100 m up the slope in front of the hotel. The furniture up there is getting rather tired from constant exposure to the elements, but I was told is likely to be renewed next season.
A delightful lunch even though I wasn't skiing that day !
My marks below only relate to the restaurant as I didn't use the spa/bar /bedrooms etc and so cannot comment.
