We had a very enjoyable meal at this lovely restaurant on the shore of Lake Annecy. The food was superb and the service excellent. All ages were accommodated. Unfortunately it was raining hard so we could not sit outside but the valet parking was very welcome given the weather. An exceptionally lovely spot for lunch or early evening dinner.

Thank Vicki C

The lakeside location of this restaurant makes it a perfect place for lunch or dinner during the summertime. The food is well presented and tasty and the set menus offer good value for money. Call ahead and ask for a table at the water's edge to benefit from the best, uninterrupted views.

Visited for set lunch mid ....prices at around 19euros for 3 courses. Looked very good value for the position on the shores of Lac Annecy. Did not know what the menu was but understood we would not be disapointed.
Arrived Friday lunch at 1215 the outside tables all with views of the lake were 50-60 %
taken. We were sat at a table for two three rows back and slightly elevated, good position and view, We were presented with the menu and a small box at the bottom of page 2 introduced the set meal of the day and the price....no detail of the menu.
Our choice was taken after about 10 minutes, water and wine....no house wines !. We asked for the set meal of the day and was told it was sold out, we looked around and could not see any evidence of it being taken, Was there one ? We were passing this restaurant a week earlier at about 11am and called in for a coffee and enquired about the set menu. The waitress said she did not know but would find out, with the coffee she announced that days menu from a scrap of paper, it sounded good. That is why we have returned.
Anway the choices were now from the carte, it was eveident that you could order any individual course, pizza, salads,steaks and sweets.After looking forward to three courses we decided on the Chez Ma Cousine meal which had a choice of two dishes over three courses and very much to our likeing. The meal was 36 euros per person.
The food was excellent,the view turqouise lake blue skies and mountain backdrop. Could not be better. Enjoyed every minute and the wine was good.To pay the bill you have to go inside the restaurant where the proprieter was behind the bar. We had to wait in line behind three others and this annoyed me.Service was included but a cardboard box on the bar labelled TIPS was available.
We left nearly three hours later. The car was made easily available in a crowded, small and confined car park by the valet attendant and the windows half down to catch the lake breeze. Good service,worth a tip
In the evening over a snack we discussed the meal and I looked at the bill. We had been overchraged by 10euros .One set meal was described as....Esprit Gourmand....at 46 euros the other correctly ...Chez Ma Cousine at 36euros. Which we had both had.
Hence my review title.....UNSURE...How could the unspecified meal of the day at 19 euros be finished before 1230....in France. Was there in fact one? Was the overcharging intentional or not. We had our doubts which spoiled an otherwise good meal. The tota bill was for 112euruos against say 50euiros for the meal of the day plus a pitchet of wine. We certainly couldnt do it every day.
