This is the most remote restaurant in Chatel - right at the the end of the valley, perched up at the Col de Bassachaux (1778M). Next stop is a track that takes you over the ridge and into the next valley.
The building is plain and old-fashioned - no need to manufacture charm, here. The windows are large and have spectacular views over both valleys and the distant surrounding peaks. TIP - if you make a booking, specifically ask for a table by a window.
The food is old fashioned, Savoyard style - the portion sizes are enormous and it is all very tasty.
The waiting staff were friendly and efficient.
"Haut Bise" is the name given to the strong wind found in these parts (think alpine Mistral) and on the evening we were there, we were treated to a spectacular display of apocalyptic looking clouds forming and sweeping down into the valleys. Nature's own entertainment. Just breathtaking.
This place is a "must" if you visit Chatel. ND In Summer (don't know about winter) it is closed on Tuesdays.
