Had dinner with friends and have previously reserved. Service was great and they very very attentive and chatty. Food was nice as usual and desserts were great. Good selection of wines, even more than food. The only bad aspect is that is super noisy and you sit very close to other guests at other tables.

This restaurant (also good just to drink a glass) is at 5 minutes from the center (St-Francois) and look far like 10 kilometres, cause of a peacefull contrast !!

Beautiful setting with a nice view. The food is nothing to write home about, but OK. A nice place to just have a drink at in the afternoon.

In Casino de Montbenon you can always find some interesting cinema expositions and a pretty bar to have a hot tea in winter or an iced one in summer. Really suggested also for film and music festivals +++

Nice place for meetings with great view of the Alps, but not for eating. Poor food quality, not worth the visit. There are much better place for eating around.

Went to the Cinémathèque with a friend and it's a great place to have a nice cup of tea and enjoy the view.

The place is good with a park with a nice view overlooking the city, the lack and the alpes. The restaurant is OK, but don’t be mistaken, this is not anymore a Casino!
