“Disappointing New Year's Eve experience”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Went here for NYE on the recommendation of our rep, but was very disappointing. Our main complaint was that they insisted we must have the €65 set menu which was duck - a few of the group don't eat duck but they insisted that no changes or alternatives were possible. They eventually agreed to a fish option for one o us. However, on the night we saw steak after steak leave the kitchen and discovered there was a €45 steak menu available which we would have prefered but the staff at the front desk clearly hadn't wanted to "downsell" to us! Second, the food itself was poor - the duck itself was dry and flavourless and not worth €65. Finally, the atmosphere was bizarre, and there wasn't even a countdown for midnight - we started the new year in a state of some confusion, checking our watches and asking each other the time!

“Good food, but a bit pricey”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Ate here twice during January 2014 and found the food very good. Two seperate menu's for the bar and restraunt and since we didn't eat in the bar I can't comment on that element. However, the food in the restraunt was of good quality and the variety was sufficient to keep eight people interested enough to visit twice.

The wine list was good and the service was attentive and friendly. Only real complaint would probably be the prices, but them Flaine doesn't appeare to have a lot of competition.

“Two good meals and then a disaster for everyone involved”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

So we had two good meals, one in the restaurant and one in the bar (because they wouldn't serve tartiflette in the restaurant - however both were very similar meals and same seating and staff), and we went back for a third meal - not a lot of competition in Flaine but it had been good up to now. It was as if there were different chefs on duty as the main speciality cheese dish was overcooked, separated and sinking in oil, tough as old boots and hence totally different to the same dish ordered four nights earlier. Then I discovered the largest live insect I have ever seen in a salad. Picture attached, it is 3cm long! We all were revolted and left the remaining salads. The waiter was attentive and apologetic, but the manageress was the worst I had ever witnessed. At the end of the meal they eventually brought a bill and then said they would reduce it but actually increased it by €15. idiotic, no apology at all from her. Not knowing our rights in France we paid and left. Gordon Ramsey's Nightmares could pay her a visit. Take the chance if you like surprise guests on your plate.

“Celine and Eric are doing very well.”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

It is never easy to take over a restaurant that has earned its place in years, but the new owners of Le Perdrix Noire are actually doing very well. I have the impression they lowered the prices somewhat to an acceptable level even if the kitchen under Laurant's guidance is doing the same: no squeezing profit out of the food-budget there.
The bar is a haven for friends and families that seem to be going to Flaine since the first building there was erected, but that gives it a lovely welcoming atmosphere. I just love being there and will come back time and time again.
