“Rubbish, choose other restaurants in Les Gets!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Visited whilst on skiing holiday, after looking at other trip advisor reviews. My advise is don't go. Service was appalling , 10 minutes to be asked for drinks, further 15 minutes to receive them and then when they did come, the water was missing which we subsequently had to ask for twice and the wine was red even though we had asked for white!
When the food arrived the turkey was raw in one dish.
During the meal we asked for another glass of wine which then never materialised and yet was on the bill at the end.
All in all avoid it, there are plenty of other excellent restaurants in Les Gets that you can visit.

“The French like this one!”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Good service, good value and terrific ambience. Very full, but mainly with French adults at tables of 4/6, many of whom appeared to be regulars.

“Traditional Savoyard food, nice surroundings”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Of the local restaurants we sampled, this was the best of the traditional types, with the Savoyard menu standards all present as well as few less usual ones. The night we visited the restaurant was well filled and the front area facing the street is pretty and cosy. The food was of a good standard and the service was friendly and attentive.

“great service nice atmosphere- unlucky with our mains choices”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Wine was good if a bit pricy(30€), service was great. Starters were good if not exceptional. We ordered duck and sausage for the principal plate and were a bit disappointed. The sausage had a delicious gravy but the sausage literally had no flavor- none. The duck was good on flavor but a bit too fatty and tough.Presentation for both was ok. 3 stars may be a bit harsh-just don't order the sausage! ( paid 100€ total)

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Delicious food and nice staff. Definitely recommend. Very traditional and local fare. We spoke to owner regarding a huge mural on the wall and it was taken from a photo of his grandfather, and this covered one of the walls in the restaurant.
