“A wonderful culinary experience in a traditional alpine setting”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

I booked this restaurant as a second choice as Les Chaudannes restaurant was fully booked, but everything happens for a reason. The staff were charming and very accommodating, not to mention patient, especially with the extremely boorish British party who , under the influence of too much drink, were loud and obnoxious, which seemed to be the case with lots of British groups in Morzine, where, we were informed, a third of the population is British.

The food is extremely fresh, well presented and excellently cooked. I chose fish and others in my party chose the Charelais beef and the lamb. All of us agreed it was one of the best meals we had experienced. The chocolate dessert looked sumptuous and I was advised that it was (and too good to share).

The décor was alpine wood but with a modern twist of huge windows looking out onto the floodlit Plenty lift. We had a table right by the window.

Good wine, great food, charming staff (I don't agree with some of the other reviews on this).

“Very good food. Local produce.”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This restaurant is attached to the local produce shop next door. The food is fabulous. The staff are very patient and friendly. The menu is not vast because the food is cooked fresh and I was slightly embarrassed by an English family asking for variations of every single thing on the menu in very loud voices. Why go to a place if you do not like what they cook? Be brave and eat what they give you. It is gorgeous, but you may never have heard of it before.

Well worth popping into the shop as well for cheese, saussicon and so on. They are serious cheese producers and have a glass plate in the floor of the shop where you can see the cheese sitting on racks below maturing. fascinating!

“If you like cheese, you'll love these !”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Fantastic looking restaurant, very clean and great service. The food choice is limited if you are a fussy eater and not much to eat if you don't like cheese !! the food we had was delicious and so was the wine !
They also make the cheese on site which you can visit and their shop is well worth a visit. will definitely be back, maybe in the winter so we can have the huge open fire lit whilst we dine

“A Proper and Well-Run Restaurant”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We ate here three times during our summer vacation. The restaurant - indoors and out in the garden - is beautifully clean and maintained. The staff are very pleasant and charming. The owners clearly take their job seriously and - as mentioned elsewhere - the neighbouring shop is particularly impressive. The food is unfussy but very tasty with an accent on local cuisine and ingredients. I liked the restaurant very much and think you will struggle to do much better for lunch and dinner in Morzine.

“Good local fare”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

In a rather anglified Morzine, this place offers good local and traditional food. Servings are big. We were three and split a salad as a starter. For mains we had the racellette. The cheeses were tasty and there was plenty of it. I'd go again. The owners also run the cheese and ham shop next door which is well worth a visit.
