“Nice place for a simple meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

A bit cramped, but very tasty, hearty Savoyard food. The galettes are great, and there are many more choices - everything looked delicious! It gets crowded, so best to make reservations.

Friendly service and good Savoyard cuisine, all reasonably priced, particularly the wine. Loved the cuckoo clocks!

“French cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

We choosed this place on New Year's Eve and it gave us what we expected, very delicious dishes. The only minor problem was that they did not have an English Menu, but this gave us a chance to met a very friendly French couple sitting next to us and speaking English.

“Lovely little restaurant that never fails to delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

We have eaten here many times and this lovely little restaurant never fails to delight
The menu is comprehensive and very easy to understand
Try the Galettes (a savoury crepe) - there's lot's of varieties, the salads are delicious as are the desserts, especially those with a touch of local 'alcools'
But for the authentic taste of the mountains the Raclette is tops
Seven of us descended on this intimate and homely little place but no problem! After a swift table seating rearrangement and a short wait for the cheese to start bubbling away all three generations were tucking in
All in all, it's a gem with mountain views thrown in!

“A must try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

French through and through, small and inviting, quality French menu, don't bother if you simply want English food.
We will visit again.
