We are about to leave Geneva after 25 years in this wonderful region and wanted a final taste of Annecy. This restaurant was recommended to us by the man who did the estimate for our removal and we were curious rather than confident. We had a little difficulty finding it as we were looking for a place in Talloires and it is actually in the next village along, Angon (which they could usefully record on the card along with a mini-map showing the sudden sharp turn needed to get there) but once we arrived everything was perfect, enhanced by an oasis of wonderful weather in an unusually erratic summer. For once the a la carte was as reasonably priced as the menus so dispensed with a starter (though they bought us some particularly fine olives) and got straight down to water (reasonably priced by local restaurant standards), a half bottle of Apremont Boniface which turned out to be far better than its 16€ promised - delightfully crisp and fresh with lemony and grapefruity notes. For the main course we both opted for Fera, a wonderful fish only available on Lakes Annecy, Geneva and one other whose name escapes me. A generous helping superbly cooked and accompanied by juslt the right mix of vegetables and the light, fresh bread in which France surpasses all other nations. We could not resist a pleasantly priced cheese plate which we shared and found ample for both of us , leaving just enough room for the desserts. My wife chose the fraises/basilic and found it utterly delightful while I was equally content with a fruit crumble which banished any memories of the stodgy concoctions sometimes offered under this heading. Even the coffees did not disappoint, though generally French coffee is inferior to its Swiss cousin. And when the bill came we found them "offert". Stunning setting almost in the lake! Charming, but not phoney or sycophantic, service. Could anything be improved? Well, the toilets just need a little Swiss attention, but perhaps they are as they are to celebrate French culture but they were not bad enough to deter anyone, though wheelchair users would need to check the place out in advance for this reason. One of many reasons to re-visit Annecy when we no longer live on its doorstep.
